Bathrooms, big or small, should be beautiful and functional, utilizing space efficiently to address the needs of their users. Just what is considered beautiful and functional will vary from home to home, but there is one thing that all bathroom remodels should share to ensure their success: avoiding common design mistakes.
- A Clear View In – A view of your landscaping? Yes. A view of the toilet from the kitchen? No. Whenever possible, bathrooms should not be located directly off one your home’s public rooms, such as the dining room, kitchen or living room. You don’t necessarily have to relocate your bathroom, but you need to clearly separate the spaces to break the line of sight.
- Highlighting the Toilet – Avoid placing the toilet in such a way that it’s the first thing you see when you enter a bathroom. This will also help you keep it out of sight lines from outside the room. Have the toilet, shower and sink separated, and this will not just help keep your toilet out of sight, but will also allow two people to use the bathroom simultaneously.
- Bigger Is Always Better – Not necessarily. Large bathrooms are great on their own, but so are more moderately sized ones. Rather than simply aiming for getting more space, your goal should be wiser use of space for your specific lifestyle. Work with an experienced general contractor to get advice on how you can make the most of your bathroom space.
