The perfect bathroom… How do you design one?
Although it is considered one of the more private rooms in a house, where we only spend time in the morning and at the end of the day, bathrooms have become more and more of a focus for architects, decorators and interior designers. And with good reason.
Typically, there are two types of bathrooms in a house: a private bathroom and a main bathroom. The difference is that the latter, which is usually the guest bathroom, doesn’t usually have a shower or a bath. This allows for more creativity and a greater emphasis to be placed on decoration; the use of statement pieces, pictures, wallpaper and other elements.
However, when the need to redesign this room arises, building materials and technologies also need to be considered in the design. Examples are furniture, the most suitable types of wall coverings and both flooring and lighting solutions. Alongside the aesthetic factor, it’s very important to consider the quality and durability of raw materials. The following are some relevant details.
Whatever the size of the bathroom, furniture must be carefully thought through and exceptionally functional, i.e. with plenty of storage space. Putting up shelves where towels and other items can be arranged may be a great option.
Next, it’s important to choose the best raw materials, i.e. those that are sturdy, of a high quality and are easy to maintain.
Wall covering and flooring
Bathrooms are subject to high levels of water condensation, humidity and high temperatures. Thus, natural stones, such as marble, granite and quartz, may prove to be the most suitable and resistant solutions for wall coverings and flooring. Wood might also be the perfect solution for walls. Regardless of the materials used, it’s always important to create a balance between the colours and other elements chosen.
It is in the bathroom that some tasks that require either natural or artificial light are carried out, which makes lighting another important aspect.
Lighting is crucial due to its dual function – to illuminate and to decorate.
As well as creating a relaxing and breezy atmosphere, there are certain spots, such as the centre of the ceiling and next to mirrors, that really require light to be installed.
When designing the project, it is essential to consider safety issues, due to the high level of vapours and humidity.
Moreover, the inclusion of certain details, such as door handles, faucets and mirrors can make all the difference, as they will bring uniqueness, exquisiteness and elegance to the room.
Environmental conservation is another aspect that mustn’t be neglected. You can even save on your water bill if you opt for a sustainable bathroom with taps and showerheads that reduce water usage.
