Do you have enough lighting planned for your bathroom? Natural light is an important element in bathrooms. A window, a wall or roof skylight will bring in natural light, a view or a dramatic skyscape. Having a skylight that opens is great because moisture build-up is reduced. Artificial lighting is also vital and often overlooked in a bathroom. Without good lighting, the decor and the personality of your bathroom can not be developed properly. Lighting for your bathroom can be natural and manufactured. Lighting should be used to brighten and define the space since both can affect your mood and how you feel inside your home.
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.
Small bathroom - includes corner shower stall, toilet and sink and typical dimensions are 6x6 feet. Childrens bathroom - can be a three-quarter bathroom or full bathroom depending on the size of your home and how many children you have. Childrens bathrooms should have plenty of storage and cubbies that are safe and colorful. If several kids will use the same bathroom, a wall or half wall between the toilet and the rest of the bathroom may be a good idea.
You may also think of installing a wall mounted sink and floating cupboards. This will eliminate them from taking too much floor space. Also, you can utilize the floor for other purposes such as putting a trash can or a plant.
A common error with small bathroom owners is that they tend to be focused on their walls that they forget that they have a door. This door is actually more useful than acting as an entrance and exit. You can install some towel and clothes hangers at your door to conserve space. This will also give you more wall space for your small bathroom design.
