Bathroom Design Tips

Today, even bathroom design can't be taken for granted, and it includes far more than choosing simple fixtures. Before diving into a pile of tiles, you should learn about the leading trends, recommended materials, and all the amenities that every bathroom needs.

We only spend a short amount of time in the bathroom each day; it's where we go to spoil ourselves, and it is essential to the overall home atmosphere. Today everyone likes to invest in designer bathrooms, which over time have grown in size, along with their range of amenities and accessories. But, due to the large amounts of humidity, it's very important to choose the right materials when designing a bathroom.

So where do you start? Here are some great tips:

Think Before You Act

Before you start shopping, measure your bathroom space and decide where the fixtures will go (for example, the toilet should be placed to the side of the door so it's not the first thing you see). You should then measure the floor and wall space, so you know what area needs to be tiled. Figure out your basic needs, the type of atmosphere you want to have in your bathroom, and who will be using it.

Find Your Design Style

Retro, rustic, or Japanese? There are numerous design styles available today, and you should focus on the one that best fits you. If you're having trouble deciding, use an interior designer to steer you in the right direction.

Choose Bathroom Fixtures Wisely

There is such an incredible range of fixtures on the market today: bathtubs in every size and color, luxurious showers with (or without) benches, designer sinks, Jacuzzis, wall-mounted toilets, and more. At the end of the day, you want a pleasant space that is not overloaded, so your fixtures should match each other and the size of the room. Even if you've always wanted a free-standing bathtub, it may not be suitable or practical in a smaller bathroom. Smaller bathrooms should have wall-mounted fixtures to create a clean, minimalist look.

Function Before Form

A free-standing sink might look great in the catalog, but in many cases will also require shelves placed around it for your toothbrushes and other personal grooming items. It's important that the toilet and sinks are at the right height so you aren't uncomfortable when using them. Also, if your children will be using the bathtub you should purchase non-slip floor tiles.

Storage Solutions for Everything

Towels, shampoo and soap, shaving gear, toilet paper, and various personal grooming products take up a lot of space in the bathroom. To keep it neat and orderly, you should include appropriate storage solutions. Suspended cabinets are great for smaller spaces.

Wall-to-Wall Designs & Coverings

Bathroom tiles are meant to protect your home from dampness and water damage. But today there are also mineral-based anti-mold paints that are capable of coping with high amounts of moisture; this cost-effective option can give the bathroom a unique look so you are not committed to tiles. There are many styles of tiles, and the easiest to maintain are ceramic or granite porcelain. You can also choose marble, glass, or wooden accents for your bathroom, but those materials will require ongoing maintenance.

Ideal Lighting Placement

Bathroom lighting should be intimate and flattering, but also allow you to shave or put on makeup easily. So, make sure that you choose lighting that will go above or around the mirror.
