Whether you’re decorating a new bathroom or renovating an existing one, designing a layout for your bathroom will help you amazingly. To brainstorm your bathroom layout master plan, you’ll need to try different ones until you know what suits you the most.
It all starts with a floor plan. Make a scale of 2 cm to 30 cm and start adding your bathroom measurements. One of the measurement you need to keep in mind is the 30 cm between the shower and the toilet or the vanity. Many designers would require at least 52 cm in front of the sink, the tub, or the toilet.
Also, you’ll need to provide a minimum of 1.2 m between the wall behind the toilet and the opposite wall. You’ll need to plan for an adequate counter space to accommodate the sink, and you’ll also need to allow for a minimum of 70 cm centered at the sink.
After that, you’ll need to determine the proportions of all your bathroom’s fixtures, fittings, and all other parts of your bathroom. You’ll also need to keep in mind where the plumping and plugins systems are.
It’s all about the maximum use of every inch you’ve got without overcrowding the room. It also depends highly on finding a strong focal point to base the whole bathroom layout on. It could be a spectacular wall hanging, an offbeat faucet and drain set, a high-tech shower booth, an antique claw foot tub, or even a window with a natural view.
Having a window in your bathroom doesn’t mean that you have to compromise your privacy. You can install an acrylic or sheer window panels to provide all the privacy you want while adding to the rejuvenating feel of your bathroom.
Keep all the problems you’ve struggled with in your old bathroom in mind while making a layout plan. You may’ve suffered from insufficient storage spaces or lack of good ventilation or inadequate lighting. It’s of utmost importance to address such problems so that you don’t face them one more time. Remember to be picky about what you add to your bathroom and move things around a few times until you’re sure that everything fits perfectly in its own space.
