The Anatomy of a Bathroom
How well do you know your bathroom? Choose the perfect layout and fixtures with the help of these tips
The bathroom is known to be the go-to spot in every home. It's place where you conduct daily must-dos such as brushing your teeth or putting on your makeup. But aside from being a busy area, the bathroom can also be a place for some relaxation.
When building your new bathroom, you must consider the right layout, fixtures, and furniture. Interior designer Peaches de Guzman-Grey shares with us some helpful tips to help you build the space that you've always wanted.
Two important considerations first:
When building a new bathroom, you must consider the recommended space requirements. Make sure that you leave at least 21 inches of clear floor space in front of every fixture, and 30 inches by 30 inches for the shower so you can have enough elbow room. (Familiarize yourself with the recommended bathroom measurements here.)
Plan the working areas (sink, bath, water, closet) around a central space to be able to achieve a more spacious design. To help you finalize the layout that will suit the needs of each family member, consider the following questions: Who will use the bathroom? How will they use it? Do you need extra cabinets? What items are you planning to store in the bathroom?
After taking into consideration these items, you may now decide on the fixtures, materials, and accessories that you'll need. Keep in mind that each bathroom is different as it depends on the user's needs and style.
