Comfortable and practical, that is, what should a family bathroom look like?

09 of August '21


What should not be missing in a shared bathroom? How to arrange it so that it is spacious? Does the size of the bathroom sufficiently affect its functionality, or does it depend on a thoughtful arrangement?

A large bathroom is a challenge! The family should think carefully about its needs and estimate the budget before proceeding with it. The square meter of the bathroom is the most expensive meter in the apartment, so it is necessary to use the possibilities of the room wisely. A large square meter does not at all mean that the layout of the interior can be approached with less attention than in the case of a small area. A large bathroom, responding to a variety of needs, must be fully functional. For practical reasons, when space allows, it is worth considering a separate toilet. You can provide for two rooms in advance, or separate the toilet area from the sink area with a low partition wall.

Use the potential of the space

A spacious bathroom offers the possibility of a spacious, comfortable bathtub. When choosing it, we should narrow down the circle of search, that is, determine the desired shape and dimensions. After choosing a particular model, it is worth checking how the bathtub has a contoured bottom. If the size of the room allows it, you can plan both a bathtub and a shower cubicle in the bathroom. When there is no space for two bathing areas, a bathtub with a shower function can be an alternative.

When arranging a large bathroom, it is worth taking the time to carefully select a washbasin - large enough and functional enough. If you envisage only one washbasin in the bathroom, let it be long, even up to 120 cm, with the possibility of using two faucets, or two-chambered. A practical solution is to plan two washbasins. Then the morning and evening toilet runs much more efficiently. In a large bathroom, countertop washbasins will look impressive. It is easy to match them with a practical and aesthetic under-sink cabinet.

Furnishings matter

A family bathroom, which is used by several people, requires iron discipline from the users. It is worth using solutions in it that affect the freedom of use. In the toilet area it is a good idea to bet on sanitary devices suspended on racks. KOŁO brand hanging toilet bowls and bidets have many advantages. They make it easier to keep the bathroom clean, as they allow easier and faster cleaning of the floor. In the interest of hygiene, it is worth choosing flangeless toilet models and opting for ceramics with antibacterial or easy-to-clean coatings.

In a shared space it is easy to maintain order when practical furniture provides plenty of storage space. A functional space should be based on a well-thought-out structure, not a lot of furniture. Even if the bathroom is large, its space should be used optimally - plan a cabinet over the rack, build in recesses, especially in an irregularly shaped interior. Let the cabinet under the sink be suspended, then it looks lighter and more modern. The more closed cabinets and capacious drawers in the bathroom, the better.

Also certainly worthy of attention are the washbasins and furniture from the Koło Nova Pro Premium series, which took the market by storm last year. They delight with their striking design, and at the same time are insanely functional. Made of the highest quality ceramics, they are easy to keep clean and resistant to minor damage and scratches. This can be of particular importance for those who decorate their bathroom so that it is aesthetically pleasing and fashionable for many years. It is worth noting the Slim Rim model with a rim height of only 17 mm, which makes the washbasin an elegant, minimalist whole together with the cabinet on which it is mounted. In this way, we can build our own composition, meeting both our daily needs and our individual sense of style.

Sophisticated details emphasize the idea of the arrangement

A large bathroom gives the owner many opportunities to plan the space and let his imagination run wild. You may be tempted to use dark colors with light accessories - fixtures, decors, furniture - or opt for pastels. Large rooms like contrasting combinations and geometric patterns. The palette of dark colors can not miss bottle green and cobalt, which go perfectly with the fashionable terrazzo. Gold and powder pink also look great when combined with stone-flecked flooring. It is very popular nowadays to combine terrazzo with pastel pink, green, yellow, blue or orange colors. Trendy colors and patterns, among them marble and patchwork motifs, should be used to emphasize the division of a large bathroom into individual functional zones - distinguish them with the mentioned different color or ornament.

When arranging a family bathroom, do not overlook important accessories: towel racks (in such a number that each household member could have his own), accessories matching the style of the interior, such as: soap dishes, soap dispensers, cups (preferably ceramic). You should also keep in mind such improvements as faucets equipped with aerators, which help save water. In the case of a large family, this is of great importance.
