Renovating with Beautiful Practical Bathroom Designs
Like any room in your home, your Beautiful Practical Bathroom Designs is a prime space for you to reflect your personal style, and even more so than other rooms because it can be a particularly personal space; but it is also important to make sure that it can serve you in all the ways you need it to. When approaching a renovation like this, implementing practical bathroom designs allow you to get the best use of that space.
But what does exactly does “practical bathroom designs” mean? There are so many things to consider when trying to produce functional spaces that one can oftentimes forget needed elements – and forgetting things potentially crucial to the functionality can make these designs not so practical. Some pertinent questions to keep in mind would be:
How many people use this bathroom? – If a higher volume of people use the bathroom, then it is important to consider traffic flow and privacy. Keeping entrances for the shower and toiler out of regular view would be to your advantage in such a situation to allow multiple use of the space without intrusion.
How old are the people using the bathroom? – This is a good question to ask yourself particularly if you intend to spend many years in your home. If you are remodeling a bathroom for currently young children, keep in mind to accommodate their needs now and later on as they grow up. The same things should be considered for older people as well: if you will be using this bathroom into old age, it makes sense to make everything as accessible as possible.
What kind of time is spent in the bathroom? – Do you like to luxuriate and relax in the tub or is it a shower and brush and then you’re done? This is especially important to think about when choosing the bathing appliances -for example, a shower for quick users, a full bath for families, and separate shower and tub for frequent users.
Things to Consider
There are many components to consider when one is trying to accomplish the best and most utilitarian of bathroom designs, so before you start renovating make sure you choose each of the following carefully to reflect your style and needs:
Appliances – This includes the vanity and skin, the shower/bathtub, and toilet. Make sure to remember the number and ages of the people who will be using them.
Lighting – Having adequate lighting is always important in the bathroom, but also consider the environment you want it to be. If you want to foster a calming presence, having softer lighting and/or dimmers would be very advantageous.
Fixtures – Choosing these – faucets, showerheads, lighting fixtures – can be a lot of fun. Function should of course be considered, but fixture choices are the biggest opportunity to let you reflect your personality in your bathroom, whether you enjoy futuristic minimalism or colonial classicism.
Walls – There are all sorts of ways to cover walls of a bathroom. Once you establish the style and colour, the most important thing to think about is material. Regular paint or wallpaper can add nice touches, but having tiled walls prevent water damage and are easier to clean in high-use and/or children’s bathrooms.
Storage – If a large number of people will be using the bathroom, it is a good thing to make sure you have ample storage space for linens and other bathroom essentials.
