London builders: Comfort in a small bathroom
Let’s assume that you want to have the maximum of necessary sanitary equipment and the extended set of facilities. But if you locate it in the traditional way, it will be absolutely impossible to turn around. Non-standard decisions can help in such cases. For example, the unusual configuration of the bathroom can offer very interesting decisions. The equipment will not fit, if mounted at a right angle, but upon changing the corner of mounting of this equipment, you will get free access to it.
“Flexible” organization of useful space will help to increase roominess. For example, a turning box can be mounted in the corner of the shower cabin. The full-equipped bath can be combined with the shower cabin. It is desirable to face all part of the space with the same material, in order to achieve visual unification.
The colour in the bathroom is mainly determined by wall and floor tiles. Here there works the common rule for all types of premises: light tones and transparent materials visually extend area, dark tones diminish it. Do not use the tile of dark or extremely bright tones and the tile with a large pattern. Sparkling surfaces are not suitable too, they make things seem heavier. It is better to choose mat surfaces of tiles and furniture. Floor tiles, faced bias, visually widens the premise.
The illumination of the bathroom must be reasonable because it is not a surgical operating-room. The lamp in the mirror zone is functional.
Furniture and equipment. It is important to use the possibility for storing things, without sacrificing free space in the bathroom. Compact baths, shower facilities, mirrors, boxes, small furniture are developed especially for small bathrooms. Compact light furniture from the same collection adds lightness to the premise. Shelves on roller bearing from the chrome-plated metal with wire mesh sliding containers can prove to be practical and comfortable. The area under the desk top of the wash-stand and over it, is maximally used for mounting of shelves and boxes.
It is even possible to hide the washing machine under the desk top.
If there is no place for the furniture at all, we will maximally use the area of walls, i.e. wall niches and shelves.
Mirrors are considered to be traditional methods of visual widening of the area. In our case we cannot do without mirrors. It is most appropriate here, it is functional, aesthetical and visually widens the area. It is possible to make it versatile: it can not simply hung on the wall, but serve as the door for the closet for small things. If the bathroom it not sufficiently illuminated, the mirror with the changing angle of the slope fastened on wall can bring additional convenience.
Heating elements, heated tower rails, without which we can not imagine a bathroom, also require space. Let’s think whether we can make them multifunction. For example, we can transform the heated tower rail into the system that supports the small shelf for necessary trifles and serves simultaneously as the supporting system for the folding screen (it can be an effective and practical alternative to the shower-curtain).
Small space obliges you to think over the design to the smallest details, in order to turn the bathroom into an aesthetical and functional room. Our allies are colour, light and shape. If the primary variant of planning does not correspond to your objectives, the planning can be changed within reasonable limits, in order to achieve maximum comfort.
