Small bathroom design
A small bathroom will become not only functional, but also aesthetic, given the design features of small rooms.
Three pillars in the design of small spaces - light, color and graphics. These rules also apply to the design of a small bathroom, because our task is to visually expand the space.
- Colour. For decoration, choose light, pastel colors of a cold shade. They will create a pleasant background for color spots and give a feeling of additional illumination. It is better to abandon the elements of black color - it visually narrows the dimensions of the room. Flashy colors only emphasize a small volume.
- Graphic arts. The bathroom will look more harmonious if you make color and graphic emphasis on only one wall. Subconsciously, a person, looking from an emphasis to a wall of neutral color, feels as if the bathroom is much larger than it really is. Stripes of bright shades, drawings of medium sizes look good. A small ornament ruffles and merges, a large drawing dominates the entire space of the room.
- Shine. The problem with the bathroom lighting is that it is always perceived as the same. In order to create a novelty effect, come up with a lighting scenario, and the lamps must be turned on separately. For example, bright light bulbs on the ceiling or around the perimeter, spotlights in the mirror, illumination of individual elements. Mirrors and transparent panels of the shower cabin help the effect of illumination.
The necessary set of plumbing - a washbasin, toilet and bath. To save space, you will have to change their size or location. Small-sized modern plumbing is expensive.
In Russia, the installation of a sink is popular either in the corner of a room or above a washing machine. Practice has shown that it is these options that are both convenient and save space. You should not install a small sink - they were invented for guest bathrooms.
Hanging toilets create the illusion of lightness, and cleaning under them is easier. Corner mounting saves the space of the toilet room.
The issue of replacing the bathtub with a shower stays open. There are corner and sitting bathtubs on sale - they can be equipped with transparent partitions, as well as showers with high pallets where you can draw water.
