We head for the bathroom as soon as we get up, and sometimes our mood depends on the exterior and comfort of this room. One wants to make the visit to the bathroom the first pleasant moment of the starting morning. This article tells about methods of beautification of the non-residential premise that rouses a number of censures because of inconvenience of planning and minimum space. Our dear readers must have already guessed that in this article we will talk about bathrooms.
So, you have decided to change the appearance of your water closet. The first and the most important thing for you to know is that you cannot do without planning decisions. Simple relocation of sanitaryware equipment will not increase the amount of so needed space. Let us consider several variants of design of bathrooms for premises with small area. We offer for your consideration variants that use the system of installation. The essence of this system lies in moving the waste tank, pipes and fixture of the lavatory pan into the wall with the help of the special fixation system. As a result, there appears additional free space. You will easily be able to get to the farthest corner of the bathroom and keep the floor clean. Moreover, this technology enables to keep peace and quiet in your bathroom and neighbouring premises. Additional surfaces revealed by installation will be not only practical in terms of hygiene, but will also make your bathroom more modern and beautiful. Usage of non-standard elements and complication of form of the premise will also help to use the area rationally. For example, the sink, shower cabin or washing machine can be concealed in the niche of the wall. Very interesting is the variant, when the bath is located in the corner, diagonally, which vacates the space along walls and also makes the premise look elegant.
A podium is of great importance for appearance and comfort of the bathroom. Stage hoisting is intended for making the way in and out of bath easier. Depending on the style of the design, footsteps can have various shapes, whether a classical flight of stairs or a pleasant flexible line. However during the choice of any variant it is necessary to take into account that facing tile for footsteps is to have nonslippery properties. If we make use of these small tricks, we will get so needed additional space where we can locate a bidet and laundry area, for example. However, be reasonable about additional functions for your bathroom and not showing excessive zeal, remember about free space, required for moving about. Some standard flats have such tiny bathrooms that no alterations and relocations, without radical changes, will add the needed space.
In more commodious bathrooms, the design fantasy can create such pirouettes that you can hardly imagine. We will illustrate our statement with an example of a fascinating and non-standard planning. Construction of the free-standing wall can not only add originality and style to your bathroom, but can also block the view of the toilet. As a result, there appears additional surface, which you can rationally use. In this case it was suggested to mount the wash-bowl with sufficiently large mirror on it. From the opposite side of the free-standing partition you can make open shelves for storing bathing accessories and various domestic trifles.
By the way, zoning of little water closets is best done by functional elements instead of bulky partitions “eating away” the area. Decor of the bathroom in the “empire” style is another illustration of our statement. Columns, supporting a cap, walls, finished by the Venetian plaster, original lights, mosaic panel over the bathroom, ceiling from built-in glass with double highlighting give the premise the look of a unique architectural masterpiece. Let us underline that finishing of walls can be absolutely different in any variant of planning, starting from paving of one-colour tile over all perimeter and ending by an art panel or by the combined variant: tile + paint. It is better to choose water heat-insulated floor as the floor coverage for the bathroom. The floor ceramic tile that variety can satisfy any taste also did not lose its actuality. It is better to cover the overhead surface by stretched ceilings (refer to the previous article) or ceiling panels, these constructions are durable, aesthetically beautiful and quickly mounted. And spot lights, which fill the space with pleasant light, give an ideal fit for them. Certainly, the above-mentioned design decisions are only a few examples of bathroom planning. Surely, the designers of leading repair and construction companies during the development of interior will take into account SPECIFICALLY YOUR tastes and wishes. And after stepping on the threshold of your new bathroom, you will switch into a wonderful mood and will exclaim in rapture: “Long live the scented soap and the fluffy towel!”
