Before you embark on a new interior design project for your bathroom, it’s essential that you decide on a style that fits the space you’re working with. Namely, there are three different types of bathrooms that you could be working with; master, guest and half.
The master bathroom is usually located adjacent to or near the master bedroom, often mimicking the general style and theme of the bedroom. Given that, designing a master bathroom that is radically different from the bedroom might be a little drastic. Moreover, master bathrooms are meant to cater to the needs of the occupants of the master bedroom, so comfort is an important facet of the design. Although master bathrooms are usually elegant in design, it’s necessary that the layout of the space provides for efficient storage and comfort.
The guest bathroom is usually located close to the guest bedroom, or as a standalone bathroom in the hallway. In the case of free-standing bathrooms that usually have limited amount of space, you can easily incorporate elements of your creativity and personality. Bear in mind, the need for efficient use of space is also a necessity in this case.
The half bathroom adds a purely decorative touch, usually containing a simple sink and toilet and void of showers or bathtubs. This room is easy to use for decorative purposes and its theme can be directly associated to the home itself. The half bathroom can be accented with artwork, accessorized with flowers and other items that serve as unique touches to an otherwise simple space.
Today’s Necessities: Layout & Storage
Layout and storage space are possible the two most important aspects of your bathroom to consider before embarking on a redesign project. Layout, in turn, can amp up the resell value of your home if you can manage to create a space that appeals to the masses. Be sure to have enough space for one in your bathroom so that the layout provides for redecorating options for other families in the event you choose to sell your home. You might want to even try shower and bathtub combinations, which will give your home the best of both worlds. In this vein, think about what would be the easiest to work with in the future.
Storage space is also a necessity, with this becoming one of the main reasons people choose to redecorate. Vanities are becoming more popular due to their storage capabilities. Using bathroom space efficiently can easily improve your home’s storage potential in no-time.
