Make bathrooms cosy to help you relax; here are some new trends

In modern homes, bathrooms are designed to suit the theme of the house and boast designer fittings and soothing colour palettes. Most people are curious to know about the perfect position where the toilet could be placed. However, architects say that the perfect spot to place the toilet is near the bathroom door as it would be easily accessible for both adults and kids alike.

The shower area could be built away from the toilet. Ventilator or window could be installed close to the shower area. Meanwhile, you could also use the top part of the window as ventilator which could be kept open. The bathroom window shouldn’t open to the kitchen or the sit-out of your neighbour’s house. A standard bathroom is usually seven feet high. In some homes, bathrooms are built under the staircase to save space. However, this may not be a great idea. If this area is seven feet high, then you could turn it into a cosy library or reading corner.

In my opinion, there should at least be one bathroom in the house that is built in 8 x 10 specification. A small ceiling fan could be added. Besides, a small table and chair could be arranged in a corner. Do not forget to place a few books on the table. The cleaning objects shouldn’t be placed where they could be spotted easily. Dim lights make the bathrooms feel like a comfortable space.

Tiles in two complementing shades of hues could be paved in the bathroom. A mirror could be hung at least six feet above the floor on one of the walls. Bathrooms are extremely private spaces where we can see our bare bodies. So, bathrooms should also be spaces where we could relax for some time.
While designing bathrooms, you must remember that they can be spaces where you can enjoy happiness and peace. Modern bathrooms are aesthetic spots that are not just areas where you take a shower or use the toilet.
