Full bathroom - includes toilet, sink, and combination tub/shower plumbed along one wall. Typical dimensions are 5x7 or 5x8 feet. Half bathroom - includes sink and toilet only. It can be placed on the main floor of your home to reduce the morning rush, and the family doesnt have to go upstairs to use the toilet. Common dimensions are between 3x6 and 4x5 feet, about the size of a smaller closet.
There are a large variety of bathroom designs to choose from. And your interior designer or contractor will ask you to make a step by step set of choices. Firstly, you should choose the right colors. Choose a proper color scheme that would be the basis of your bathroom design theme. Once youve chosen the colors, your next step is to decide on proper patters, decors and styles. Also you should decide whether you will be using wallpapers, tiles or just leave them painted? And how would you want your flooring to look like? You can choose between lamination and conventional tiling. Then there is the option of exposed floorboards.
When decorating a traditional bathroom both soft tones and bold colours can work well. Strong tones of browns, maroons and greens give a nice warmth to the room, but be sure the bathroom is well lit, maybe with a lavish chandelier. With the right colours, antique gold can look better than chrome. Go for curtains, never blinds. If going for a vanity unit rather than a traditional basin and pedestal, choose an oak or cherry finish; or the white Cynk vanity unit is a good look with traditional baths and toilets.
Either tiles or wooden floors can be used. Tiles should be a rustic colour, and can be used to create elaborate mosaics. Wooden floors should be varnished to match the furniture. Decorating may see a stenciled motif used as a border, and the technique of rubbing paint on the walls with a sponge gives the room that worn natural look.
How many of us have had a bathroom with a cluttered airing cupboard? With the modern bathroom theres no need to cram your toiletries, towels and cleaning fluids around the boiler. With fitted vanity units, storage units and cabinets youll have all the space you need. When examining modern bathroom design, wall-hung furniture has to get a mention. White gloss will never go out of fashion, but more recently furniture finishes such as wenge, beech and maple have made a real emergence in popularity.
