The bathrooms They are one of the rooms in the house that are minimizing their size. As much as possible we all want to have more bathrooms in less space and, where before there was a spacious and complete four-piece bathroom, now there are two small bathrooms. But while reducing its size it try that the lack of space does not affect comfort in the bathrooms.
The market has prepared for this change and there are more and more models of compact furniture. The sinks and toilets reduce the bottom to a minimum and we are systematically giving up the previously essential bidets in our bathrooms. The way of planning and designing bathrooms has been changed. Despite the narrowness, under the washbasins the space is maximized and a niche in the shower or bathtub to have support space, it is a must have in any well designed bathroom.
In conclusion, we reduce spaces but do not give up (except for the bidet) to everything necessary to enjoy a full bathroom. Here some keys to survive a small bathroom.
BETTER WITH COMPACT SANITARY
- A basin of "normal" size - and by normal we are going to refer to those of before-, has a bottom of between 50-55 centimeters. Now there are sinks with very little depth (even less than 40 centimeters), which adapt to almost any space. Basins that sometimes have the taps on one side so as not to "steal" centimeters. The embedded wall taps They are also compatible with the narrowest sink models.
- As for toilets, the standard size of a non-compact toilet is 70 centimeters long. Now the most demanded models are the compact toilets sixty centimeters deep and 36 centimeters wide (at least).
The same function in less space because those extra centimeters count when opening a door or giving way in very narrow bathrooms.
THE SLIDING DOORS WILL MAKE YOU WIN AN EXTRA SPACE
While the bathrooms have lost space the doors have become wider following the norms of the UNE of the Building Code. In a house built since 2001, the door of a bathroom must be at least 62.5 centimeters and open into the bathroom. Which implies losing centimeters that are scarce in the bathroom.
Therefore The sliding door is a great option in really small bathrooms that will facilitate the design and use of the bathroom.Via @Nobleotter
SKIRTS WHERE YOU CAN MAINTAIN THE ORDER
We have already said that whenever you can you have to look niches or wall holes to make room for storage. But in the absence of welcome niches are the shelves wherever you can. In the bathtub or shower, above the toilet, over the sink ...Via @Arquitetacamilafleck Via @Velondonista Via @Claudeandthehouse
OR BASKETS AND FURNITURE UNDER LAVABO, ARE THE OTHER GREAT BAZA
Whenever possible and however small the sink tries to include drawers or shelves underneath to gain extra space. Failing that, baskets and boxes will help you have the most collected and tidy bathroom (essential in any small space so as not to generate chaos).Via @Emilyjanelathan Via Urban Outfitters
