In the bathroom we start our day, get energized by taking a contrast shower. Or we can relax after a hard day at work. And I want this room to be as comfortable as possible. In our material, we talk about the latest trends in bathroom design, how to visually expand a small room, and what furniture to choose here!
Naturalness is in vogue today, and this also applies to finishing materials. Recently, tiles with a rough texture, imitating wood, concrete or stone, have become popular, – says interior designer. – More and more often people choose porcelain stoneware, which fits both on the floor and on the walls. Large tiles up to three meters long appeared. And this is very convenient – the larger the format, the fewer seams. The format of 20×20 and 15×15 comes back into use – they are usually allocated separate areas.
Try to zone the space with tiles with different textures. For example, one wall and floor are brown wood-like tiles, and the rest of the walls are stucco moldings in light shades.
According to the designer, if ten years ago cladding from one collection was in fashion, now they combine tiles of different formats and textures. At the same time, we moved away from the once popular friezes and mosaic inserts. In this regard, the design of the bathroom becomes simpler, they try not to overload the room with details. Some people just paint the walls the color they like.
Patchwork-style tiles do not go out of fashion. Cladding with a geometric pattern is relevant among designers, although it is not so easy to find.
An excellent solution would be to choose curly tiles that will revitalize the interior and add volume to the walls. Three-dimensional, embossed patterns are also in trend. It is not necessary to lay tiles all over the wall, it is possible only on a dedicated part of it.
Bathrooms with large patterns look interesting. Moreover, the elements can be arranged chaotically.
An unusual combination is obtained by using small narrow tiles that look like a mosaic. They create relief, a minimum of waste remains during finishing, and with their help you can visually expand the room, or make it higher.
More and more people are choosing eco-style, minimalism for the bathroom. Small shelves with dozens of creams and shampoos are being replaced by a multifunctional cabinet for bathroom accessories. Towels, shampoos and jars of creams are maximally hidden from prying eyes, everything is thought out in detail. No unnecessary decor.
If classic is a lifestyle for you, choose walls in calm colors. Furniture made of natural wood or durable MDF, finished with natural or artificial veneer, decorated cabinet fronts. Since wood does not like dampness, it is best to install such furniture in spacious, well-ventilated rooms.
Currently, the trend of combining a bathroom with a toilet is popular – one of the options is to make the room more spacious. However, if the family is large and there is no second bathroom, it is better not to do this.
According to the designer, the interior in the bathroom has become more and more minimalistic over the years. For example, more and more people choose wall-hung washbasin cabinets and toilets with a hidden installation system. It is not only stylish, but also convenient – it is easier to clean.
Many no longer buy baths themselves, but prefer a shower. At the same time, they do not choose a classic cabin, but install glass and a shower rack.
For those who like to soak up the bath, designers suggest installing it separately, if space permits. This technique will make the interior richer. Please note that plumbing does not have to be white.
There is always a lack of light in the bathroom. Therefore, in addition to the main lamp, you can equip a bath, shower and mirrors with additional built-in lighting.
A small room should have the most minimal set of furniture. The vanity unit and mirror will fit even in the smallest bathroom. Many people put a washing machine next to it. Alternatively, combine them with a common tabletop. It is very convenient and looks minimalistic.
Today you don’t have to worry about picking up furniture. Some manufacturers offer ready-made kits. If space permits, then in the set for the washbasin cabinet and countertop, pick up nice and spacious cabinets for storing linen, hygiene products and household chemicals. Wall cabinets with a mirror are a good solution for a small bathroom, as they significantly save space. Better yet, make niches in the wall instead of shelves.
How to decorate a small bathroom?
Even 3-4 square meters of your bathroom can be decorated with convenience by choosing the right finishing materials, furniture and plumbing fixtures. We bring to your attention a few tricks:
– A small bathroom is best decorated in light colors, this will visually expand the space
– Choose only the most necessary and functional furniture, do not clutter up the space with unnecessary shelves
– Separate bathroom and toilet can be combined into one room by removing the partition and thus increasing the usable area
– Radial shower and corner washbasin will save a lot of space. If you still like to soak in a full-length bathtub, choose the corner model
– Mirrors and glossy surfaces visually increase the space
– Instead of a bath, you can install a shower, which will save space
– Closed cabinets will look bulky, so use open shelves. And put shampoos, combs and creams in special storage baskets
– Take care of good lighting – this also increases the space. It’s great if additional bulbs are still reflected in the mirrors.
