Just as the supper at refined restaurant differs from fast-food snack, half an hour in a sweet-smelling bath contrasts with five minutes of fresh shower. Unfortunately, living conditions not always allow us to place a swimming pool or Jacuzzi in our bathroom. Let’s talk about bathing pleasure even within the smallest bathroom.
Probably, it is impossible to find a person who would like to have a small bathroom. What is the sense of that? Narrowness, impossibility to equip a room on your own free will and eternal dilemma: whether to place a bidet or a washing machine, to hang up a cabinet for bathing accessories or a heated towel rail? Each of us would like to have a spacious room where it is possible to place a Jacuzzi, to lay nice carpets on the floor, and maybe even to place a relaxation nook – a bench with a small table for cocktails. In other words, it would be great to transform daily procedures into favour ones. But, perhaps, none of rooms in the house contrast between dream and reality as much as a bathroom. And you’ve got to do something with that …
Most of all, the bathroom is a narrow rectangular where the bathtub itself is traditionally placed along a long wall, and near to it, in far corner, a toilet bowl is mounted. As a result, the remaining space is hardly sufficient for movement. And now let’s have a look at a long and inconvenient room with a fresh pair of eyes. What’s wrong with installation of a bathtub along the distant, short “side” or with placing of corner-like variant? Such solution will allow installation of all sanitary equipment without any difficulties and remaining free space would be occupied with stylish interior favouring pleasant procedures. But it is not necessary to occupy the remaining space with functional furniture or flowerpots flowers – the effect of “spacious” bathroom will be lost! Some free space beautifies a bathroom much more than the loveliest decorative elements.
By the way, let’s remember such beautiful and having no additional space requirements way of bathroom decoration – mosaic and pictures on a glazed tile. It is possible to lay elegant design or to get any picture suitable as of its palette and mood. You may add it with stucco moulding and relevant bathing accessories – and a bathroom of you dream is ready.
One more eternal problem is installation of household appliances. First of all it relates to a washing machine which is frequently appears to be unnecessary both in bathroom and in kitchen. In the bathroom there is not enough free space to place it and in the kitchen it is not always fit in interior. Actually there is no need to be on the horns of a dilemma. Just place the washing machine … into sliding-door wardrobe in a corridor or in the box-room. Such household nook allows both to save a kitchen interior and to clear one square meter in bathroom.
When there is a discussion of space economy, the shower cabins and hip baths are remembered at once. But such solutions are compulsory substitutes of fully-featured baths, and such choice is connected exclusively with shortage of space or with lack of skill to make good use of it. Such solutions may be used by anyone but not by us.
Let’s have a look at two-in-one items and at amusing and ergonomic furniture which you can make with your own hands. For example, light chest of drawers which occupies almost no space. Having placed it under a mirror, you achieve two goals. Firstly, there is a set of containers for storage of numerous jars, shampoos and creams. Secondly, such chest of drawers keeps an effect of “empty wall” and does not compress the space by eye. By the way, you may place it under a wash sink: in that case it is necessary to provide water communications compartment and to place boxes on each side. Thus, the place often used absolutely irrationally finds new functional load. There is one more solution – don’t tile your bath completely and make a small locker under it. You may hide there a small bedside-table with a seat (which, in its turn, may serve as container for storage of small items).
In other words, we can convert our bathroom into some kind of personal SPA-salon. It is possible to realize almost any design and planning solution nowadays – it’s all depends from your imagination and will.
