The bathroom is often one of the favorite rooms of the inhabitants. Why? Because it is often the most enlightened room of the house but also one of those whose layout has been best thought out. Here are some tips to make your bathroom the most beautiful and pleasant room in the house.

Understand the available space 

The first thing to do is to be aware of the available space and its characteristics. This may seem obvious, but understanding the shape and size of your bathroom is the key to visualizing the best possible development. Start by drawing a plan of your empty bathroom. Try to make this plan in the right proportions. If you are working on paper, make several copies of this plan so that you can draw several layout attempts.

Do things in order

Then decide where you will place two key elements: the bathtub (or the shower) and the sink. These are the focal points of your bathroom, so think about choosing the nicest corners to position them. For more tips on showers , visit Daniel’s blog. If your toilet will be in the room, think about its location already. For the sink, pay special attention to a criterion, brightness. Traditionally, a mirror is placed above the sink, so it is better to put them in a very bright corner. Not only will you see yourself better in the mirror but, in addition, it will reflect the light it will perceive in the rest of the room. During this stage of designing your bathroom, you are already starting to give it a style.

Define a style 

If you place a bathtub in the center of a large room because you like to feel as if you are in the center of a very large space, you are already introducing some elements of style. Once the tub / shower, sink and possibly the toilet placed, decide on the mood you want to create. Zen with bamboo upholstery and natural colors? Modern with floor-to-ceiling windows? Falsely industrial with sheet metal furniture? “Cozy nest” with soft and welcoming materials? Whichever style you choose, it should make you feel comfortable, the perfect environment for relaxing in a hot bath or under a shower. At this point, you should already have a pretty clear idea of ​​your future bathroom.

Spread your budget intelligently 

It still has to face the reality of your budget. Try to set your maximum budget before even making your first expense. This will help you to better distribute your budget in the different elements of the layout of your bathroom. It would be a shame to invest in a beautiful bathtub and then having to surround it with furniture, tiles and paintings of poor quality. So spread your budget gradually, essential elements to the small decoration, always thinking well of the total budget.
