Options for arrangement of separate bathrooms

The presence of two bathrooms is the normal feature of the spacious urban apartments, which essentially facilitates the life and makes it ultimately comfortable. But there is, nevertheless, the issue of the stuff that should fill the space of two rooms, so that they could be not only aesthetically pleasing, but also functional.

  • Master bathroom

In general, if there are two separate bathrooms in apartment or in house, the master one is located in a larger room. Depending on your habits and needs, as well as on the actual size of the room, a fully-featured bath and shower cabin, one large or two separate washbasins, toilet bowl, furniture for the bath accessories can be installed there.

If the room is large enough, then it is possible to install a bidet, a dressing table and a separate seat there

  • Guests’ bathroom

An additional bathroom for the convenience of guests and the home owners can be often located close to the guests’ room in the spacious apartments. Here it is better to install the shower cabin instead of the bath, because it is more compact and does not occupy much space. Also you need a toilet bowl and a small washbasin with a mirror, and if there is some free space after their installation, it is possible to fill it with the shelves for towels and cosmetics, to put a soft pouf or a chair.

Now let's consider the case with the two separate bathrooms in the apartment, one of which is allotted for the bathroom, while the second plays the role of a toilet.

  • Separate bathroom

The bathroom space should be arranged so that you could feel its size even after the installation of sanitary ware and furniture. In case, when the room is quite large, install a separate bathtub and the shower cabin, a closet for the accessories and the washbasins for both spouses in it.

You can combine the bath with a shower cabin in the smaller bathroom, if you install a glass screen or a door, a shower rail for a curtain. We recommend putting a chest of drawers with the washbasin recessed in its tabletop instead of a separate closet. You will only have to attach the mirror and lighting fixtures in the relevant functional areas.

  • Separate toilet

A separate toilet in the standard size apartments is often a narrow space, in which nothing but the toilet bowl can be placed. But if you were more fortunate with the housing, then it is more likely that the toilet room is much larger. There will be some place for a washing machine, small corner washbasin and the toilet bowl, but if the former is already installed in another place, then it would be appropriate to complement the space, for example, by the convenient bidet.

Design options for the separate bathrooms

A unified style is not required for the both bathrooms today, in addition, the separate bathroom and toilet is a great opportunity to experiment with the color scheme and style.

  • Master bathroom

The apartment owners have the right to arrange and design the bathroom at their discretion by choosing bright or muted palette, minimalism or Art Deco, one large or two separate mirrors and so on. Just do not follow the fashion wholeheartedly, because it changes.

For example, it is recommended to choose the sanitary ware of simple classical or minimalistic shapes, against the background of which the fancy mirrors and unusual lamps will look eye-catchingly.

  • Guests’ bathroom

The main requirement of the guests’ bathroom is convenience, safety and functionality. There may be elderly people or a family with a small child among your guests, and therefore, it is better not to use a motley palette and slippery flooring in the design of the room. The neutral color scheme is a better choice in this case, and a proper lightning, ergonomic sanitary ware and furniture are essential.

  • Separate bathroom

The bathroom, which is separated from the toilet by the wall, can be completely different by style and color scheme. Since the humidity is permanently increases there, it will be better to choose tiles or ceramic granite for all the surfaces. The flood top light can be completely replaced by the lamps in the working area, and you may also use suspended or legged furniture to make the room look more spacious and light.

  • Separate toilet

The floor of the separate toilet can be laid with laminate, parquet or cork, warm and pleasant to the touch, instead of the tiles. It is not necessary to choose the unified style and color scheme, but, on the contrary, to use contrasting colors, eclectic design and unusual accessories, thanks to which the ordinary toilet will turn into the original and eye-catching room.
