Keep in mind that part of what sets the hotel experience apart from that of a typical home is that not only are these items on-hand they’re also meticulously displayed. With just a glance you know exactly what towels and toiletries are available to you. When designing a guest bathroom your goal should be to have your family and friends feel the same way.
The best part of being on vacation is the little luxuries that your hotel has to offer. Even though your friends and family won’t be staying at a company-run resort you can recreate the experience by adding some luxe accessories to your guest bathroom.
Less is truly more when it comes to modern spaces. In this school of design rather than thinking of negative space as something empty that needs to be filled it’s seen as an active detail in creating a minimalist aesthetic. The key to pulling off this look is making every design element count.
‘Problems are a sign of life’: Life for everybody is difficult. This is one of life’s great truths. The late respected psychiatrist Dr M. Scott Peck says ‘Life is a series of problems. Do we want to moan about them or solve them?’. Whether we choose to acknowledge the fact or not we all face problems and the end result we end up with is how we respond to those problems. We need to accept them embrace them and tackle them head on; we need to give time to them.
Your sink and how much space you can maneuver around it is crucial in the use of your bathroom. Determine your specific needs for your sink. Are you someone who has a lot of toiletries accessories and need a lot of storage? Use a small vanity that has under counter cabinet doors and add organization shelves and drawers inside the cabinet. Don’t have a lot of storage needs but want it to look decorative? Consider using a pedestal sink or a wall mounted sink with decorative shelving below. If you don’t have space for either they also make sinks that fit in the corner of two walls. This sink has a 90 degree back and the sink nestles between the walls to give you maximum floor space.
Usually when you read about bathroom design ideas the master bath is the focus. While your ensuite can serve as your own personal escape it’s not the only washroom that deserves consideration. A well-thought-out guest bathroom for example can be both a gift to your family and friends and a source of never-ending compliments.
