The heart of your bathroom is the bathtub. If you have a freestanding bath, one that is not recessed or positioned next to the walls, then why not go for a red one? An old fashioned claw footed bathtub can be given a highly contemporary twist with a splash of red to update it. Complete the look with a funky wallpaper design or some red tiles on either the floor or the walls. Going heavy handed with red can make for a bathroom that is too oppressive, visually speaking. Nevertheless, with a subtle touch a very red bathroom can be pulled off. Select small tiles that have a highly reflective surface so the color does not appear to be even in all light conditions. Use plenty of light fittings, which should be bright white, and set to shine over the red surfaces. Break up your red walls with sections of pure white. Go for a white floor and white closet doors.
When you have little space to design in, a powder room’s pipe work may have to be on show. Boxing it in, to hide it, can take up valuable floor space. In such situations make a virtue of the necessity and accentuate what you would normally prefer to hide, like down pipes and waste pipes. Select brushed stainless steel faucet fixings and a towel rail that matches your basin’s waste pipe. Why not extend the idea and use metalwork for your basin, too? Chrome works well as an alternative to stainless steel. If your powder room is located under a stairwell it can be even more pushed for space than elsewhere. Don’t be put off a clear design ethos just because the ceiling may slope or because the room has an awkward corner to negotiate. Site the toilet at the place where headroom is most restricted. Keep the color scheme light in tone and hang a large mirror to give the feeling of more space. Another good tip it to install a hand wash basin that sits in a corner, so guests don’t have to squeeze past it.
If you have children, you likely have a bathtub. And if you have a bathtub, you likely have bath toys. And if you have bath toys, you’ve likely had to kick them out of the way to use the tub, or found them strewn across the bathroom countertop, or leaving puddles of water all over the floor tile. Sound familiar?Some of these instances might be alleviated if you could simply figure out a way to organize and/or store those bath toys. Of course, you have to find a method that works for your family and your bathroom. Below are a few ideas to get you started in the right direction:
This idea entails open shelving being installed under the toilet sink to accommodate washed and dry towels, toiletry units for every member of the household and a towel rack for wet towels. Even the first aid box can fit into such shelving. One good thing about this type of shelving is that it does not necessarily have to take up any floor space. There are also already made roll-out under-sink drawers that are removable and helps you keep your bathroom organized in a minimal space.
