Rules To Follow When Designing Your Wellness Focused Bathroom

Updated: Aug 6, 2020

Bathrooms are so varied these days, you could say that anything goes. But behind the differing sizes and styles are some common design principles that point the way to success.

A bathroom should be a place to be calm and relaxed. If it’s chock-full of fixtures, it may feel cramped and uncomfortable.

1. Layout. Sketch out your ideal bathroom layout. ..

A bathroom is often designed to fit into the smallest space possible, and then people still want a tub, separate shower, twin sinks and a toilet. Give your space a break!

Go for a separate tub and shower only if there’s genuinely enough room; otherwise, combine the two. Remember that the user needs enough room to stand, dry off and turn around.

2. Storage. Think about what you use and where is easiest to access it. ...

The clutter of too many toiletries, no matter how attractive, can undo your good work in creating a calm space. Rather than fight the inevitable, accept the reality and embrace great bathroom storage.

The key is to think through what you need to store and then design appropriately. Some things are best kept in a drawer, some in a mirrored cabinet and others in a cabinet. Consider how the storage solutions will work as part of the whole room.

3. Surfaces. Surfaces can set the tone of the room. ...walls, floors

4. Hardware. Be consistent with the style and size of fittings. ...

5. Bathroom ware. ...vanities / storage cabinet

6 Color Palette

7. Accessories / Mirror

Think About the Details

Even bathrooms with the most expensive fixtures can end up looking disjointed if the details aren’t carefully considered.

Another pet peeve is tile that stops halfway up a wall, leaving a horizontal ridge that will collect dust. Either tile the whole wall or set the face of the tile flush with the wall above by adding an extra layer of plasterboard above the tile before the skim coat of plaster.

8. Lighting Scheme - chandelier , lights around mirror

Let In they natural light..Bathrooms often get the space left over after bedrooms take the best spots and windows. But spare a thought for those relaxed and contemplative times spent in the bathroom.

Daylight can be the most wonderful magnifier of space and is particularly important in small bathrooms,

As with any room, the solution is a combination of task and ambient lighting — after all, you wouldn’t want to be putting on makeup in your own shadow.

9..Ventilation and heating

10.Build a stylish but practical shower

11. Make the most of your window

12. Include a feature wall / Focal Point

Many bathrooms play it safe with white and cream, but if you want to make your space more exciting, you need a focal point. It can be a difficult balance to get right — for every boring bathroom, there’s another so jazzed up that it gives you a headache.

A great way to make it fun without going overboard is to choose a feature that suits the room’s scale. This could be standout mirrors, decorative tile or a key color.

13. Add plants and flowers

14. Keep it Simple

15. Have fun and be creative ❤️

A bathroom should be a place to be calm and relaxed. If it’s chock-full of fixtures, it may feel cramped and uncomfortable.

Fundamentally, a bathroom must work. That means it should feel natural to use and be easy to clean, and all essentials must be accessible, well-functioning and suitably lit. Whatever design you adopt, never let style get in the way of function...
