Guest bathrooms have become an important component in a country house or apartment with an area of over 60 sq. m. the reason is that the interior is divided into private and public areas, each of which must be your bathroom. It is convenient, practical, functional.
Let’s deal with the interior designer Mary Bohr, how to make guest bathrooms.
The most important thing you need to remember to allocate any space for the guest bathroom — not so easy. You need to think about summarizing the necessary communications and coordinate redevelopment in the BTI. The General rule is that a bathroom cannot be over living quarters downstairs. Provide forced ventilation in the bathroom — this will prevent odors and humidity.
Guest bathroom is better positioned either immediately at the entrance — in the lobby or the hallway or near the guest rooms, if provided. If the apartment, the guest bathroom can be several on each floor.
Before planning a guest bathroom, should consider the frequency of its use. For example, if it is intended not only for guests but also for owners, not to do it combined. And if you are, you have not often, limit yourself to a small room with minimal fittings.
Oddly enough, the guest bathroom is the so-called “business card” of the owner. In its design and style it is possible to read the attitude of hospitality. So often guest bathrooms are made luxurious than the master.
The most important thing in interior guest bathroom — ergonomics. In a small space it is important to provide everything for a comfortable stay: furniture, double bed, dryer, mirror, and thus to make the bathroom spacious.
To visually expand the space will help finishing materials with glossy and mirrored surfaces, niches, and decorative lighting.
The minimum set of plumbing in the guest bathroom — toilet, sink, mirror, hooks for towels. To save space, will help toilet bowl, and if the bathroom is combined, then the bathroom should be abandoned in favor of a shower or shower compartment with partition. To save space will also help a small corner sink.
Don’t forget to also consider the drawer for storage of towels, Soaps, deodorants.
