A common impulse in designing a bathroom is to try to fit fixtures into an already confined area, if you’ve ever used a bathroom where this fancy was acted on unchecked then you know this is a mistake, for example, a toilet placed in a too small location with inadequate clearance on either side. Quite simply, bathroom fixtures each need a certain amount of floor space in order to be used properly. When planning where to put the fixtures, it’s important to leave enough space around and in front of them, follow these general rule/guidelines to ensure that there is adequate maneuvering room in your bathroom for people both with and without disabilities. Sink and toilet occupy about 12 square feet of floor space at minimum, while a bathtub (standard size) occupies 30 square feet, this will possibly bring comfort and safe.
While there are many ways to make a small bathroom feel larger, sometimes the only recourse for a cramped spaced is to actually make it larger. Enlarging a tiny bathroom is actually by moving walls and changing fixtures location, this option is not cheap in terms of labor, but in some cases, it is the only practical alternative for creating a functional and attractive bathroom. A classic way to make the cramped space feel larger is by adding a large mirror. A pedestal sink maybe used, it occupies only a small footprint, while a flanking vertical cabinets provide plenty of much needed space. Making the window larger centered in the wall helps the room to flood with light.
Using the space efficiently is one important component in the planning process, as the part of your bathroom begin to come together, pay attention to the interaction of the materials and elements of the design and use them to your advantage to get the right visual and impact.
A bathroom composition, good or bad, is the result of how the various individual elements work together. The key is to unite everything together in a way that’s look logical, balanced and organized.
