Bathrooms are assets of calling a home a fully furnished one. The size and the usability decide the standard of living. But how does one effectively consider the design and arrangement when the available and affordable bathroom is metaphorically the size of a matchbox? Why do we, nowadays, have such small bathrooms for our personal hygiene and privacy? The answer lies in the advent of metropolitan civilization. Bathrooms are been compromised and crunched with the increase in the number of households and the proportional decrease in space. They are multi-faceted and exponentially practical in usage but how to make such small bathroom spaces beneficial?
Most of the cramped small bathrooms are devoid of the infusion of natural light.
Go with a sliding door choice in the small bathroom as door opening plays a vital role in the design.
In smaller toilets the wet-dry distinction is absolutely mandatory!
Since the layouts is rather small, it is important to make sure the colour palette selection is done with careful psychological examination and predicting the future usability of the bathroom.
The hot and cold water from the fixtures experiences varied temperature which leads to condensation on walls and other cold surfaces.
Sanitary ware companies such as Hindware, RAK, Kohler, Parryware etc. have a selectable section specifically pertaining to 'compact size' water closets and washbasins.
The regular trend of shower cubicle arrangement is the distinction from the dry zone with tile drop difference or a partition (glazed or curtain).
Choosing a shower curtain is just as important as choosing a fixture for small Bathrooms.
Accessories make the bathroom functional, efficient and less time consuming.
A key point to make sure for the small bathroom space are its items used on a regular basis.
It is necessary to respect the amount of space one can manage for toiletry storage.
It is important to consider the height as an added advantage in smaller bathroom.
It may appear as if all the space is lit, but 'smart' lighting is the real challenge.
A bathroom is incomplete without a mirror! But a small bathroom, in effect, screams for the need of a mirror!
Earlier when the floor levels were distinctly lower, privacy of the bathroom was an issue. Nowadays, necessary views to common plots, gardens and sea sides have compelled designers to increase the window size and play with the light and the available vistas!
Bathroom, in the design stage for an architect or an interior designer happens to be the most challenging part of the design. The first thing many architects tackle is the orientation and the internal sanitary arrangement to begin with. You see how important your bathroom is?
Do not underestimate that tiny little space where you have to do your regular job, it can be organized and efficiently used with every bit of volume available!
