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.
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.
Use a glass enclosure at bathtub/shower area: Shower curtains can be used at your bathroom/shower but will separate your bathroom visually. Opt for a glass enclosure that creates a subtle and visual divider between your main area and your shower/tub. For added privacy many glass enclosures can have a frosted pattern applied to them to give privacy and not get in the way of your illusion of space.
Opt for larger floor tile in a small bathroom: When selecting floor tile choose larger units and patterns that are subtle rather than busy. Less breaking up of the floor lines equates to less visual chopping with your eyes. Flooring should compliment your bathroom and by using small floor tile you will detract from your goal of enlarging the space.
Use cabinetry with open storage: Storage under the sink is a plus and if it has open storage it can serve decorative purposes at the same time. Open storage shelves allow towels baskets and other decorative items to be stored without using up room in a closet. If you decide on open storage for your bathroom be mindful of clutter and adding too many items on the shelves.
Take the picture above for example. In it you can see that whoever designed the space has taken the time to add plenty of fresh towels a plush robe a variety of high-end soaps and lotions plus spa-like bath treatments can be found on the back wall.
