Many people dream of a bathroom design that feels like a sanctuary. Some people love their bathroom design to include sleek clean lines, others indulge in a farmhouse style bathroom with dried flowers and decorative knick-knacks. Irrespective of what your personal bathroom style might be, your dream bathroom begins with a great cutting edge bathroom layout.
What is a cutting edge layout?
A great floor plan is both functional and fabulous. It puts the beautiful items on show, e.g. the vanity or freestanding bathtub which may then become the focal point of the space. On the other hand, the toilet pan should be hidden as much as possible. Read more on the ideal bathroom layout.
Whether you wish to construct a new house or update an existing one, it’s crucial to get your bathroom layout right. Watch this short video to know what to consider when planning your bathroom layout.
Bathroom design with sufficient walking space
A succesful layout allows for sufficient walking space in between your bathroom items. It should never feel squeezy moving from your shower to your wash basin.
Long vanity counter top
The leading edge layout also allows for a spacious counter top around the basin to put down your cream pots, perfume bottles and other body care products.
Bathroom window easily accessible
Ideally, the window is easy accessible allowing you to open and close it as required without the need of bending over or stepping into the bathtub to reach the handle.
Well balanced bathroom design
But most importantly, the successful bathroom layout is well balanced. This means that the vanity stretches from wall to wall and doesn’t cut short. Everything sits snug in place as if it belongs right here in exactly this spot. This will wow your visitors!
Traditional versus latest design
Traditionally, bathroom items are placed along the walls. There’s nothing wrong with that. But if space is at its premium, there are better options for you.
Bathrooms crucial for resale value
Especially when you are building or renovating in an upmarket Sydney suburb, a cutting edge layout may result in a higher resale value of your house. As most of us know, kitchens and bathrooms sell houses.
Example of a successful layout
Have a look at the bathroom layout below. It ticks all the boxes of a successful design.
To make this layout work, the bathroom needs to measure at least 3.3 by 3.6 metres.
But even if you don’t have that much space to play with, you can still create a beautiful and fully functional bathroom. Have a look at the smallest possible bathroom you can add to your home.
