one Multi-stage podium
In a spacious bathroom, it is sometimes tempting to place the bathtub on a raised platform by building a multi-stage podium. For some, this is associated with hotel bathrooms. But today, given the trend towards minimalism and simplicity, this solution looks at least strange. And it’s not entirely practical — why build extra buildings? In a city apartment, this is also an extra load on the floors.
The podium is justified if you want to focus on the bath. As a rule, this is appropriate with a free-standing bowl. And, of course, the podium should be low — one step, which is easy to enter without any effort.
2 Large shower box in a small bathroom
In a small bathroom, space is always difficult to distribute, and shower boxes (ready-made cabins) look massive. And they take up more space than shower enclosures from a pallet and a fence.
If the bath does not fit in the bathroom, and you decide to replace it with a shower, discard ready-made boxes in favor of corners. They look more elegant, besides, there are small pallets, even 60×60 cm. Although, of course, you need to evaluate whether it will be convenient for each family member to wash.
9 Outdated Bathroom Design Tricks You Shouldn’t Repeat
3 Mirror in the wrong area
To expand the space and decor, mirrors are sometimes used on the walls. But it is important to observe the appropriateness of placement. Understand what will be reflected in it so that you are comfortable. For example, a mirror in front of the toilet is unlikely to please you because of a not very pleasant view. Or a mirror in the bath area, but for reasons of practicality, because water will constantly splash on it, you will often have to wipe it and deal with soap stains.
The mirror in the bathroom is an indispensable attribute. The traditional place for it is above the sink.
four Mismatched finish
For example, natural painted brick and white “boar” tile, which is also called a brick, as in the example below. Brick is a rather brutal material, even under a layer of paint. And in such an unusual color it is difficult to combine it with anything in principle.
Natural brick looks good with wood, concrete and light painted surfaces.
6 outdated bathroom decorating techniques that will irreparably ruin your interior
5 Complex ceilings
Multi-level, a combination of different finishes, photo printing — such a design, in principle, is no longer particularly popular due to the trend towards minimalism. And in a small room, such as a bathroom, although you can go for bright experiments, you still shouldn’t take too many risks.
Yes, we do not spend much time here, as in the living room, but still universal solutions, such as a simple light-colored stretch fabric or a painted surface, will not allow you to make a mistake. You can use colored paint, designers are experimenting with this. But the finish must be combined with the rest of the surfaces.
