You may remember the kitchen layout guide infographic we published on Freshome a while back. In today’s post we would like to present a bathroom layout guide as featured on Glass Tile Store. This will come handy to anyone who is currently in the process of developing a new home. It is a known fact that bathrooms come in a variety of shapes and sizes but the efficiency of each interior is strongly correlated to an optimum layout.
While these three may be the most common other natural elements can also help round out your bathroom design. Try to let as much natural light into the room as possible; if you have control over the home’s layout consider making the bathroom a room with a view. On a smaller scale try incorporating greenery into the space.
Open shower: PROS: The no barrier appeal of open showers opens up your bathroom and can give visual views of expansive vistas and views outside of a window beyond. This modern touch gives the feel of a luxury spa or high end hotel that home owners enjoy. CONS: Many home owners don’t enjoy the open and unprotected feel of open showers. While visually appealing some home owners still prefer to have a visual and physical barrier between the shower and the rest of the bathroom.
If a monochromatic look seems a little too intense for your home there’s an easy way to brighten up the space while adding more visual interest: Just add natural materials such as wood stone or metal. Choose one or incorporate a variety.
Pair square white tiles with a warm-toned encaustic concrete floor for a relaxing vintage vibe that still feels sophisticated. Give your bathroom the same classic feel as vintage china with square mini-tiles in French blue and creamy white.
Open and closed showers are increasing in popularity from the all-in-one showers and bath tubs from years ago. There are pros and cons of each type of shower but depending on your lifestyle and usage will help you determine which is right for your family. Before opting for either style consider visiting a bathroom showroom where you can feel examples of each before they are incorporated into your home. Whichever you choose it should give you years of satisfaction and enjoyment.
