It isn’t easy to come up with a bathroom layout because a bathroom has to have three esential features. First of all, a bathroom has to be spacious because no one likes to be in a cramped space if they can avoid it. Second, a bathroom has to be useful because a bathroom just isn’t a bathroom if you cant bathe, wash your hands, brush your teeth, or relieve yourself in it. Finally, a bathroom has to look good because, though you may not spend a lot of time in there, the time you do spend in your bathroom has to feel good.
One of the most important things when planning your bathroom layout is figuring out how to use up a limited amount of room. Unless you have a huge bathroom with unlimited space, chances are that you’ll have trouble figuring out how to get a sink, a toilet, storage and something to bathe in into such a small space. A corner shower will help eliminate a lot of these problems. Most importantly a corner bathroom will provide you with enough room to bathe without taking up an entire wall. A spacious bathroom is a beautiful bathroom so considering a corner shower is probably a good idea.
Figuring out how to get the most out of limited space is important but another important factor when coming up with a bathroom layout is how to make the most out of the space you have and still make your bathroom look good. A pedestal sink would help with this because pedestal sinks are not just compact and useful but also very aesthetically pleasing. There are a lot of different kinds of pedestal sinks to choose from as well. If you like modern decor, you can get a sleek, modern pedestal sink which mainly consists of a pillar and a bowl. No matter what your taste, you’ll be sure to find a pedestal sink that fits your style and your bathroom.
Once you’ve figured out how to get all the fixtures you need into your bathroom. Once you’ve got your shower, sink and toilet in there and enough room to stretch out your legs, you need to get some storage in there. Storage is important because you need to have a handy place to put your towels, bathroom cleaning supplies, and hygiene or beauty supplies. Wall cabinets are great for this particular purpose because of two things: first they’ll be out of the way and second, they’ll hide whatever you don’t want other people to see.
