Bathroom / June 5, 2018 / .
One of the most used and most important elements of the bathroom will of course be the toilet. Simple, clear lines, monochromatic and above all functional. These are one of the main characteristics of modern, or better said contemporary bathrooms, but there are still choices to make and reasons why to make them.
Place a large mirror along the wall, or break up the wall with several smaller mirrors. Do what you can with mirrors to avoid those stark 4 walls. That simple act can remove the feeling of being closed in, and it makes your room seem larger and more accommodating than it otherwise might feel. Architects have long understood the concept of space and how we think about it. They play with positive and negative spaces in designing anything from rooms, to houses, to parks, to entire city blocks. They understand that the space in between is sometimes more important than the actual structure itself.
Given the utilitarian nature of the bathroom and everything included in it, usually the designs are space-efficient and focused on functionality. So having a freestanding tub act as a focal point is a luxury detail. Sacrificing a portion of a bathroom for decorative purposes can be a sign of luxury. In this case, the relief panel between the wall mirrors is a really beautiful and sophisticated feature. Also, the accent lighting in the floor designed to highlight the tub is also a luxury detail.
No matter the bathroom you are designing, it is vital to get the layout right. There are many factors that make up a good layout so when planning your perfect bathroom, consider the little details; how much space is between the toilet, vanity and shower? Is there sample room to move around and dry yourself? Do your doors have enough space to open and close? These little things will all come together to create the perfect bathroom layout.
