Bathroom Designs

In the literal sense of the word, a ‘bathroom’ means a room where bathtubs are replaced by showers and steam showers. More specifically, ‘a room where one bathes’ ise a better definition of the word.

A half bath contains a toilet and a hand basin. A three-forth bath contains a toilet, a hand basin and a shower. A full bath contains a toilet, a hand basin and a bathtub with a shower.

Bathrooms are usually designed in a way that both hot and cold water is used in significant quantities for bathing. From a beautifying viewpoint, the bathroom seems to stand as quite a challenge to the interior designer. The materials used for the ceiling, wall and floor coverings are required to be water resistant and must be easy to clean. The use of ceramic or glass, as well as smooth plastic materials, is common in bathrooms because they are easy to clean. However, such surfaces easily become too cold to touch and so waterproof bath mats or even bathroom carpets are used on the floor to make the bathroom more comfortable. On the other hand, the floor may be heated, possibly by strategically placing heater conduits close to the surface.

Electrical appliances, such as lights, heaters and heated towel rails generally need to be installed as fixtures, with permanent connections rather than plugs and sockets.They contribute a lot to the ambience of the bathroom.

Bathroom design is extremely important, as one spends moments alone in this room to read, think and bath. One can easily adorn the bathroom by choosing shower curtains, cubicles and carpets and fixtures to match a theme.
