Design and functionality in the interior of the bathroom
Ixplaine Design Group
Decorating a bathroom is a creative and interesting job. However, often when creating a new image for this room, designers forget about the preservation of its functionality.
Influence of finishing materials
Bathroom décor is one of the most difficult tasks. On the one hand, this room can be arranged in any of the existing styles or put together several directions, distributing the room into zones. On the other hand, due to the abundant moisture and the possibility of fungus formation, the wrong choice of finishing materials can spoil the overall impression of the work done.
In 80% of cases, when decorating a bathroom, a fireproof, moisture-resistant composite material is used:
Note! Flooring in the form of tiles in the bathroom should have a high resistance to slipping. That is, have a matte or rough surface. While for wall covering it is best to use glossy tiles.
Aesthetics in room design
Having decided on a bathroom decor, it is impossible to forget about compliance of sanitary devices and furniture to the style chosen by you. All elements of the interior should be harmoniously combined with each other.
For example, if you want to achieve a rich decoration of the room and try to recreate the interior in the Baroque style, it would be hardly appropriate to install a shower cubicle and faucet with stainless steel.
Arrangement of interior items
For small or narrow rooms, it is best to use furniture of the hinged type. Lighting should be evenly distributed throughout the room, regardless of where exactly the lamps are located. The ceiling and walls are decorated in bright colors.
In this case, use acrylic corner bath or shower. To preserve the functionality of the cabinet is located under the sink. For storage of towels involve a narrow pencil case.
For a large room with high ceilings, several types of lighting are allowed:
- dim light in the area above the bathroom;
- bright lighting in front of the mirror and sink.
For such rooms, a Jacuzzi built into the floor, or a bathroom on massive metal legs in the middle of the room will look better. The color scheme of the room can be diverse. Furniture items are placed along the walls. Often, in such cases, use open shelves for storing towels.
