The modern bathroom has many functions. It serves as a room for washing, washing, storing cosmetics, various household trivia, which should always be at hand. Therefore, the design of the bathroom must meet all the needs of the owner. Do not forget about the aesthetics of the room, because this is where the day begins and ends. The bathroom should please the eye, accommodate all the necessary equipment, serve as a place for evening relaxation, have a place to accommodate all that is necessary.

There are a lot of tricks that will make the bathroom a favorite corner, where it's nice to spend time with all family members.

Finishing and materials

The main requirement for bathroom finishes is safety and durability. Although the legislation does not explicitly prohibit the use of any materials, it should be borne in mind that some elements of the finish can bring more difficulties than good. The natural stone considerably heavies the floors, and the glass partitions are beautiful, but not reliable. The most popular finishes:

  • tile from porcelain tiles, granite chips, synthetic polymers;
  • mosaic;
  • plastic panels;
  • tree;
  • decorative rock;
  • wallpaper;
  • damp-proof plasterboard;
  • decorative plaster, paint;
  • combined finishing.

These materials are easy to take care of (including wood and wallpaper, if they have a moisture-resistant coating), and modern manufacturing techniques make it possible to embody the most daring interior solutions.

Flooring materials in the bathroom should be resistant to moisture, temperature changes, detergents, and be safe and durable. These criteria are suitable for many options, but each of them has its own characteristics.

Tile. Do not miss the water, just look after it, when using a quality grout will not cause problems. Choosing a tile of a certain style, you can completely change the interior of the bathroom.

The sea on the bathroom floor

Before laying a new floor, it is necessary to dismantle the old coating, pay attention to the waterproofing, make a screed. After that you can use any materials.

Important! Try to choose a floor covering with a non-slip surface, otherwise the bathroom instead of the desired place of rest will turn into a zone of increased danger.

Before choosing a style, materials, colors and textures, the bathroom walls need to be leveled. Alignment is done with the help of moisture resistant plaster or plasterboard on the galvanized profile. Using gypsum cardboard, the finish will go faster, but it will take away a lot of useful space. Alignment of surfaces with plaster is slower, it needs time to dry. The composition of the mixture, containing antifungal components, protects the walls from mold. Then you can tile the walls with tiles. If you plan to use wallpaper, paint or decorative plaster, after leveling the wall you will have to putty. For the bathroom, a water-based paint based on acrylates or latex is suitable. Latex paint, unlike acrylic, creates a film on the surface that does not allow water to pass through. Acrylic paint is best not to use near water sources. The fastest, budgetary version of the finish is washable wallpaper with glue containing antibacterial additives.

Ceiling ванной комнаты должен обладать теми же качествами, что и стены. Его можно покрасить, покрыть влагостойкими обоями, панелями ДСП со специальным лаком или пластиковыми, использовать подвесной или натяжной потолок. Все эти поверхности легко мыть, им не страшен конденсат, температурные перепады. Оригинальным вариантом станет зеркальный или витражный потолок. Стеклянное покрытие можно декорировать множеством способов, оборудовать подсветкой, превратив в эксклюзивную деталь помещения. Матовое или глянцевое стекло можно тонировать, украсить фотопечатью — решение впишется в любой стиль интерьера, визуально увеличив помещение. Единственный минус такого покрытия — его хрупкость. Впрочем, то же можно сказать и о натяжном потолке. Floorотнище довольно просто повреждается острыми предметами, поэтому стоит соблюдать аккуратность в уходе.

It is important to know: if the walls are darker than the ceiling, then the room is visually drawn up. If the ceiling is darker than the walls, the room makes an impression more spacious, but the ceiling seems lower than it actually is.

Bath or shower?

Ask yourself - what is more important: comfort or space saving? If you can not answer unequivocally, then you need to consider the features of both options. You need a bath if:

  • the area of ​​the room allows it to be installed;
  • you can not live without a bath with foam or aromatic salts;
  • you have children under 3 years old - wash the baby more conveniently in the tub;
  • a large water flow is not a problem.

Vanna with wood

The shower cubicle is useful when:

  • there simply is not room for a bath;
  • The water pressure in the apartment is more than 3 bar;
  • I want to take a whole complex of water procedures, including a bath, a tropical shower, aromatherapy and hydromassage.

Location of furniture, equipment, accessories

Modern design options for the bathroom include hundreds of ways to place the necessary items. There is one general rule for small and large rooms: a bathroom should not be cluttered. All the items are logical to choose according to the footage. Miniature toilet bowl and sink, which will become just a salvation in an apartment with a small bathroom, in a large room will not be entirely appropriate. Plumbing should be located closer to the water supply, sewage. Plumbing, furniture, accessories should be combined, creating a single style in the room. Do not forget about the section for storing household trivia. Wall cabinets with shelves can be placed not only on the walls - the doors will also fit. The space under the washbasin can be occupied by a curbstone. Other accessories, for example, towel racks, it is better to place them so that they are at hand, without interfering.

Sink and toilet bowl

Tulip, my moydodyr, cantilever - each of the shells has its advantages. The tulip resembles a flower with a leg, pipes are hidden behind the leg. The structure can be monolithic or separate. The shell-moydodyr is similar to the character of the famous cartoon, it is equipped with a comfortable pedestal. Console models are a table top in which a bowl of shell is mounted. It can be wall or floor. To save space, it is necessary to choose an angular structure. Shells are located at a height of 85 cm. They vary in width - 50, 56, 65 cm and depth - 40, 42, 45 and 50 cm. The toilet can also be fixed to the wall or on the floor - depending on the model. Bowls of toilet bowls have several varieties: funnel-shaped, bowl, canopy. The first and third options almost do not give splashes, for the second one you may need additional adjustment of the water pressure in the tank.

Washer в ванной — почти недостижимая мечта для обладателей маленьких санузлов. Но производители делают всё возможное, чтобы техника влезала в небольшое помещение. Но даже если метраж позволяет не экономить место, заранее определите площадь, которую вы сможете выделить под стиральный агрегат. Желательно установить машинку подальше от ванны, чтобы на неё не попадали брызги воды. Некоторые располагают машинку под раковиной, убирают в нишу при её наличии, даже ухитряются закрепить на стене над унитазом. Модели с фронтальной загрузкой потребуют дополнительных сантиметров на открывание двери. Если вы не располагаете лишней площадью, выбирайте технику с вертикальной загрузкой — её можно разместить почти везде. Стиральная машинка во влажном помещении нуждается в специальной, защищённой от влаги розетке. Важно позаботиться о заземлении.

Lockers and shelves

Bathrobes, towels, cosmetics, detergents - all this must be stored somewhere. It's great if the bathroom furniture combines a common style. In the catalogs you can find photos of whole furniture sets. But not always the area of ​​the bathrooms of an ordinary apartment allows you to find a place for them. Then the interior items will have to be selected independently. Cabinets can be floor, wall or with non-standard arrangement. Sink-moydodyr or curbstone, chest of drawers, narrow high pencil case or hanging sections are equally convenient. The main thing is to have a place for their comfortable placement. Convenient shelf shelves, they can be put or suspended. Due to the lack of walls and doors, the design will add a space of lightness, grace. Bathroom cabinets are pleased with a variety of models: they are corner, with one or two doors, with drawers, with a built-in dryer.

Mirror в ванной — это не только нужная вещь, но и дизайнерский приём. Зеркальная поверхность визуально добавляет размера любой комнате, наполняет её светом, воздухом. Разместить зеркало можно где угодно: над раковиной, на двери, просто на свободной стене — главное, чтобы вам удобно было им пользоваться. Кроме настенного отражающего элемента в раме или без, можно сделать зеркальную стену, потолок, использовать зеркальную плитку в отделке или установить большое напольное зеркало. Интересным решением является шкафчик с зеркальными дверцами или отражающие панели во всю стену, создающие иллюзию бесконечности пространства. Можно сделать на свободной стене композицию из зеркальных элементов разного размера — это хороший способ проявить фантазию, украсить помещение, создать свой собственный стиль. Для ванной комнаты используют только влагостойкие зеркала.

Laundry basket

A basket for things intended for washing is a useful item. She must be:

  • solid;
  • without jags, sharp details;
  • with ventilation.

Like other accessories, it should be in harmony with the interior, without taking up much space. The simplest version is a corner basket made of plastic. It is easy to clean, does not clutter up a useful area. Cute and at home look like woven laundry containers made from vines, rattan or other natural materials. Metal baskets are beautiful, but have considerable weight - it is better to choose a design with wheels. There are accessories from textiles, but they need to be often ventilated, otherwise they will become a cozy home for mold and fungi. Some bathroom furniture is equipped with stationary or pull-out laundry containers, they are also convenient. You can make a shopping cart with your own hands from the materials you like, using the instruction from the photo from the Internet.

Fixtures in the bathroom can bring into the room not only light, but also beauty. If the area of ​​the bathroom does not exceed 5 square meters. m, for its lighting is enough for one chandelier with a pair of lamps in the center of the ceiling. Illumination may be needed in the area where the mirror is located. This will be an additional convenience when applying makeup. A spacious room allows for several types of lighting. In an interior use:

  • chandeliers;
  • Spotlights;
  • sconce.

It is important that the room is lit evenly. Sources of light must be placed at an angle to the glare surfaces. If the chandelier is traditionally placed on the ceiling, then the dot light elements can be placed anywhere: on the ceiling, walls, on the sides of the mirror. Sconces hang on the walls in places that need not only to light, but also to decorate. But just above the mirror, the fixtures should not be mounted - they will distort the reflection.

Choosing an interior style

The choice of style depends on your preferences and budget. But there are some general tips:

  • Do not choose a fancy finish and furniture, it quickly becomes boring;

Classic style

The immortal classic does not go out of fashion. To get an elegant interior of the bathroom and demonstrate a wonderful taste, you can use in the decoration of dark wood, marble, its imitation, tile, gilding. Screaming colors are inadmissible, all shades should be soft, no chrome and no hi-tech - here they are not appropriate. Bath better fit in the interior than the shower. You have to take into account the modest size of the bathroom and choose, for example, a sedentary bath. If possible, it is best to hide household appliances in niches.

You can use wooden shelves and accessories with a coating that resembles gold, copper or bronze. The interior will be complemented by an elegant curtain for the bath, solid towels and forged or wooden holders for them.

Этот поражающий воображение стиль возник на стыке индустриального и богемного, взяв лучшее от обоих направлений. Воплотите необычный дизайн ванной на маленькой площади. Walls, пол, потолок оформляются нарочито грубо. Вам подойдёт плитка, имитирующая кирпичную или каменную кладку, штукатурка, обои с фактурой, напоминающей цементированную стену. На таком андеграундном фоне обычный унитаз или стиральная машина превратятся в арт-объекты. Сюда впишется прозрачная душевая кабина, стекло — непременный атрибут лофта. Подсветка в потолке поддержит урбанистическую стилистику помещения. Сняв с люстры плафон, оставив лишь провод с лампочкой, вы не прогадаете. Прятать водопроводные трубы не обязательно, они — часть интерьера. И аксессуары подобрать не сложно: в качестве держателей выступят те же трубы, а вместо полочек вам пригодятся проволочные клетки.

Название говорит само за себя. Ничего лишнего, в маленькой ванной всё будет предельно удобно и функционально. Сделать интерьер в этом стиле не так просто, как может показаться. Особых требований к материалам не предъявляется, но строгие формы, минимум цвета, скромные аксессуары — обязательны. Классическая палитра минимализма — белый, чёрный, серый. Сантехника должна иметь углы и геометрию, предпочтительны квадратные, прямоугольные формы. Подвесная техника сэкономит пространство, добавит ему объём. Декоративные элементы не нужны вовсе. Предельная лёгкость, свежесть, свобода. Minimalism нуждается в идеальной чистоте, почти стерильности. Запылённая вазочка в прованс-интерьере добавит обстановке романтики, а «пыльный» минимализм — унылое зрелище. Текстиль не используется в оформлении, максимум — полотенца и занавеска для душа, не бросающиеся в глаза.

Scandinavian style

Despite the apparent simplicity with the severity of the lines, the Scandinavian style is one of the most cozy. Usually, natural materials are used: wood, stone, fabrics of plant origin. The design is dominated by a white color, dark shades are permissible in accents. They should be exclusively in natural scale. In such an interior it is pleasant to be, easy to breathe, even if it is organized in a minimal space. It is in this style will ideally look like a woven laundry basket. You can not save on lighting - you can not get by using single point lights. Laconic chandeliers, sconces are quite suitable. It is worth choosing curtains, towels, napkins made of flax and cotton. Textiles can be diversified with Scandinavian ornaments from lines, snowflakes. When choosing fittings, give preference to chrome-plated faucets, they can be a futuristic design.

Color Solutions for a Small Bathroom

The small dimensions of the room greatly limit the scope for creativity. Color will help you express your personality. Previously, there was an opinion that the color of the walls and the floor should not coincide. Traditionally, the design of the bathroom uses a combination of warm and cold tones. Cold colors add volume, warm - coziness. Bright accents in the interior are interesting, but if they are large, then visually take away a large part of the space. First of all, you should focus on your taste, taking into account the preferences of family members. Children will certainly like juicy shades, but elderly parents are unlikely. Each color can have a serious impact on the mood of a person and his state of health. If desired, you can make a room in mono-color. The most popular colors for the bathroom are white, gray, blue, green, black and white.

Orange-white bathroom interior


A room in white is the lightest among any other solutions. It will seem spacious at any distance. It would seem that everything is simple. It is enough to choose materials for finishing, equipment, furniture of snow color - and the ideal room is ready. But here there are pitfalls. It is important to make the room home-like, otherwise it will look like a cabinet in a medical institution. The secret is to choose the right decor. Adding a bright curtain or rug, you will see a completely boring option. Textiles can be changed, each time getting a new result. An interesting effect is obtained if you play with shades of white. Suppose, paint the surface of the walls in the color of ivory, and put a coating of a shade of the egg shell on the floor. The ideal combination will only be in the process of experiment - photos on packages with paint often differ from reality.

Gray is not a boring color at all. It has a lot of advantages. Neutral and non-gray gray of different shades can be an ideal background for any creative zadumok. Most often it is combined with white, but add a deep blue to the gray - it turns out a juicy stylish interior, a couple of details of a graphite shade - the situation will resemble the respectable number of an expensive hotel. In this respect, gray is more advantageous than white, it is more plastic, and for mother-of-pearl tones it is perfect, but it has character. This allows you to easily create a luxurious bathroom interior. In addition, gray - a natural shade of stone and some types of wood, which can be played when decorating a bathroom in Scandinavian or classical style. The main thing is not to forget about sufficient lighting, otherwise all efforts will not give an effect.
