By On Jul 13, 2018 Bathroom Design
Standard efficiently designed bathrooms have a tub, double vanity or pedestal sink, and toilet lined up against one wall, known as the wet wall. If this layout is getting on your nerves and your standard sized bathtub has just enough space to wet your elbows when you shower, then consider removing the tub and installing a walk-in shower with a frameless glass enclosure. Include niches for bath accessories. Additional storage can be installed at a certain height on the wall, making space for foot traffic. This arrangement will create a spacious feel as it makes the vision flow beyond the tub and the shower curtains that were obstructing the line of sight.
The greatest challenge homeowners face in selecting a finish is trying to achieve visual appeal, durability and maintenance, all in a single tile or finish. While this is possible, its important to select a material that will not blow your budget. An excellent design tip while selecting tile is Keep it Classic, Accent with Popular. Often finishes are hot for a year or two and then fade as newer and more with-it finishes enter the market. Do not get carried away by a product that is trendy. Classic finishes, like wainscoting, are a hit in powder rooms. Wallpapers are making a comeback and are reasonable priced alternative finishes if you are willing to install them yourself.
That leads to the next key design decision: a same-handed or mirrored patient room configuration. Same-handed arrangements orient all rooms and their contents in the same direction, whereas mirrored rooms are designed back-to-back, providing plumbing efficiencies with a shared wall between bathrooms.
