While the kitchen is still the heart of the home, in today’s economy many people are choosing a bathroom renovation over a kitchen because the space is smaller and typically the cost is less. With this in mind, Merillat® cabinetry has some tips to help you envision, organize and inspire the creation of your personal bathroom oasis.
“Designing an efficient and comfortable bathroom is all about utilizing all available space in innovative ways,” says Susan Dountas, Merillat brand director. “Merillat cabinetry already does this for the kitchen, but maximizing the functional space in the bathroom is even more important because the space is smaller.”
Creating your special space takes a great deal of planning and coordination so consider the following tips:
Whether you are designing a master bath, a family bath, or a hallway powder room, chances are one of your top concerns is storage. The sheer number of towels, washcloths, shampoo bottles and other products can cause clutter and require attention when redesigning the space. The good news is with these ideas, even a small bathroom can go big on storage:
- Base cabinets with pull-out trays help eliminate wasted space and fumbling for items at the backs of cabinets. In addition, a pull-out wastebasket and pull-out laundry hamper make for easy in-out access.
Consider incorporating luxury into the design to create a customized retreat. Remember it is the little things like the following that give a room that custom feel:
- Think about adding elements like heated floors or a stereo system for the ultimate spa-like retreat.
To make for efficient mornings and relaxing evenings, consider designing space for these specific functions:
- By creating separate spaces within the bathroom, you can maximize the functionality like a dressing area or a room with just the toilet so other people can use the sink without invading privacy.
