Designing a Master Bathroom
Master bedroom bathrooms are becoming very popular for couples who have more than one person in the relationship. The master bedroom is usually the ultimate in luxury, as it can be the location that couples go to enjoy romantic evenings together, or just to talk in privacy. Although the master bedroom bathroom has come a long way from being just a place where you did your morning paper and getting dressed for work, there are still many ways to make this room feel luxurious while also providing the functionality needed. In this article, I will explore some of the things to remember when designing master bedroom bathrooms.
One of the first things you should consider is floor space. The master bedroom is going to feel very crowded, so make sure you allow as much room as possible for each person to move around comfortably. Most importantly, make sure there is plenty of closet space for each individual. By providing ample storage, you can save both space and money by not having to purchase more furniture to accommodate everyone.
Another thing that most people overlook when designing master bedrooms is the lighting in the bathroom. It is hard to imagine a master bedroom without any light, but the truth is many master bedrooms do not have much natural lighting available. To solve this problem, I recommend having a couple of lamps on either side of the mirror on each side of the door. This will provide some indirect natural lighting in the room, which helps to soften the appearance of the floor and wall treatments.
Another common problem with master bathrooms is an improper color scheme. Everyone loves different colors, but they do not have to be a primary color in the room. You can use complementary colors throughout the master bathroom to add some depth and interest to the room. In particular, use a rich red or a deep maroon to create a very beautiful effect against the wall behind the toilet. The area behind the toilet can be used to add a decorative rug or artwork, and keep the room from becoming too clinical.
When selecting lighting, you should try to stay away from highly concentrated lights. If possible, try to select one light source for each corner of the room. This will add some dimension and interest to the room. Another option would be to add a recessed ceiling lighting above the mirror, above the dresser or even over the sink. These two options would really set your master bathroom apart.
Speaking of mirrors, be sure to add one in the master bathroom. The mirror will add depth and character to the room, and it may also cause some confusion by providing two views of the same space. You should not choose a mirror without being sure that it will work well in the space you have. You don’t want to end up having to backtrack and start over just because you didn’t take the time to properly install your master bathroom mirror.
Finally, no master bathroom is complete without a nice sink and refrigerator. If you can afford it, you may want to consider adding an island with a sink over. This will allow you to use your island as a storage unit, and it will make it much easier to store personal items. Don’t forget the ice maker. It will make your shopping more convenient!
By following these tips, you will be able to design a master bathroom that will be sure to please. Don’t worry if it isn’t an enormous room. As long as you take the time to do the right things, you shouldn’t have a problem. Once you’ve finished with this design, you can always move onto the next phase, which will be to select a wonderful flooring for your master bathroom. By following these tips, you will be able to create the bathroom of your dreams.
