One of the most important rooms in the house, we all want to ensure that we have our bathroom up to standard and design it as nicely as possible so that it looks aesthetically pleasing and functions properly. With that said, there are some tips and tricks to keep in mind when it comes to designing your bathroom so that you don’t end up with regrets later down the road. This blog will give you three things to consider when designing your bathroom and making sure that it has the best chance of working well in the long run.
What functions will it serve? How many people will use your ADP vanities? Where do they go while they’re in there? Toilets, showers, and sinks are three of the most common fixtures in a bathroom. If you have multiple sinks, what’s their relative importance—for example, is one for eye-makeup application and another for washing hands after using a toilet? If you’re designing more than one bathroom, does each have its own function or theme? Keep in mind that not all bathrooms (or homeowners) are created equal; perhaps one person in your household needs physical assistance with hygiene tasks. Or maybe there’s a child who needs help with messy tasks like toothbrushing.
Now, I’m not saying every bathroom has to be a replica of a spa. What I am saying is that in many homes, it can feel like an afterthought (as do other non-living spaces in many homes). Your bathroom doesn’t have to be large and lavish to be inviting, but some thought and effort can go a long way. Because bathrooms typically get heavy use, comfort is key. You want a space that feels good on those mornings where getting up from bed seems like an impossible task.
It might seem obvious, but making sure there is enough space for what you need—and then some—is important. If there isn’t enough room to maneuver around or store your toiletries without having them spread out across multiple surfaces, you might want to think about expanding your footprint or reconfiguring how everything fits together.
A few small changes could make a big difference in usability and overall appeal. The bathroom can be one of the most difficult rooms in which to find adequate lighting—especially if you don’t have control over what kind of light fixtures are already installed. Make sure you take lighting into account before finalizing your design plans so that you aren’t left with less-than-ideal conditions later on down the road.
A bathroom is a space in which we spend a fair amount of time. When it comes to designing one, things like style and fashion play a larger role than they might otherwise. But when it comes down to it, more important considerations include comfort, safety and convenience.
Think about these three aspects of bathroom design as part of creating an overall sense of well-being in your home safety. As much as we all love our pets, there’s something to be said for keeping them out of certain areas of your house – especially if you have small children or elderly relatives living with you. This goes for toilets as well. If you don’t have room for a second toilet elsewhere in your home (or just want to save money by putting one on every floor), consider placing a pet door on yours instead. This will allow Fido or Fluffy easy access without compromising anyone else’s privacy or peace of mind.
