Having an efficient and functional layout can make a huge difference to the look and feel of your bathroom. That’s why you should make this particular element a top priority when planning your remodel. To help you get started, The Bathroom Store, the premier bath renovation company in the area, shares a few handy do’s and don’ts.
- DO take into account the negative space in your bath. The negative space refers to the area between the different areas of your bathroom. There should be enough space between each feature for improved aesthetics and easier cleanup. For instance, there should be at least 4 inches between a vanity and a wall or shower screen, with about 32 inches of space by the toilet to provide elbow room. Basically, you’ll want to make sure you can move around the bathroom with ease and have enough space to fully open drawers and doors.
- DON’T separate the tub and shower if you have a small bathroom. It’s much better to get a combination tub and shower to save space. If you don’t use the tub that much, you can even opt out of the combo and choose a walk-in shower instead.
- DO consider bath storage from the very start. A cleverly thought-out storage solution can help improve the layout of your bath space. Use the area above the door and toilet to best effect. If the bathroom has a negative wall space, fill that in with shelves and cabinets, or a vanity with drawers. In a bathroom with little floor space, taller and narrower storage options work best.
- DON’T overlook empty spaces in the bath. This can be an issue in a larger bathroom, where most of the fittings are placed near walls or corners, leaving a huge empty space in the middle. You can prevent the bath from looking cold and empty by having the tub or shower positioned at the center of the room. There’s also the option to place a seating area right in the middle to increase comfort and relaxation.
