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.
Spacing is yet another factor that you should consider while remodeling or constructing your bathroom interiors. You should plan the entire bathroom design in such a manner that it augments the spaciousness of the entire area. Some people add too many cabinets and construct massive tubs and basins to enhance the capacity and style of their bathrooms. However, instead of augmenting the entire scene, they make their bathrooms look rather crammed and small. Do not commit such mistakes. The more space your bathroom gives, the more comfortable you will be.
While it is true that mirrors create a feeling of space, overdoing it shows otherwise. Using too many mirrors in a small bathroom only emphasizes the corners of the room. Be very careful where you install your mirrors. Installing them opposite of each other will not do. You should limit the mirrors for it will only show you how small the space is. Clear out your bathroom walls to create more space for your small bathroom design.
The key to decoration is neutral tones with a few dark colors. For the walls choose a matte or flat wall paint. Pale golds and yellows work particularly well as does floral or check patterned wallpaper. As with the country and traditional bathrooms, cast iron baths are a must. Either a roll-top or slipper bath will do, and although you dont want holes or rust, the more dilapidated it looks the better. Even consider running sandpaper over the paint work and claw feet. Its always worth looking out for old fittings at antique shops and car boot sales.
Certain rooms only work in certain houses, so if youre living in a modern high rise apartment the traditional bathroom isnt going to work for you. If you have an old cottage or villa retreat this style of bathroom is one you should definitely consider. Almost always, the bath is the centre piece attraction of the traditional bathroom. A free-standing roll-top or slipper bath sits proudly on a dark polished floor, and only if going for a traditional continental style bathroom will an inset or sunken tub hold appeal. Either a wall-mounted faucet or a free-standing one looks classy. Deep ridges and curved angles are what makes the traditional sanitary ware what it is - bold and masculine.
