How to organize the bathroom space,if its dimensions are so small that even standard attributes do not fit there? In our article you will find typical bathrooms of different sizes and options for their planning using the most modern solutions. Bathroom planning must be approached wisely, since after the renovation there will be no way to change or redo something. Thus, it is necessary not only to think over where the sink and toilet will be located and so much your plans may be hindered by the housing wiring of communications, but also how many people in the future will live in the apartment. It is especially important in small rooms so that no one feels discomfort when being in the bathroom or wanting to get there. This is why we decided to take ten different apartment building bathroom layouts to illustrate how the basic equipment could be positioned. Sink, shower, toilet, bath, bidet - on an area of 4 square meters, it is really possible to place all these elements so that there is still a lot of free space. The bathroom should be comfortable, modern and functional! Option 1 To begin with, consider an option where the bathroom with an area of 3.99 square meters is divided into two rooms - the bathroom itself and the toilet. The small size of the room implies the compactness of any equipment located in it. The ideal option for this type of room is one in which the toilet cistern will be hidden in the wall. And the Swiss company has the most aesthetic and reliable solution - a set for mounting a wall-hung toilet. The novelty was named Plattenbau (from German - panel building). Since the toilet literally hangs, it is very easy to clean the floor under it, no communications are visible - only a button on the wall, and the structure itself can easily withstand a weight of up to 400 kg. Option 2 Layout with a total area of the room 4square meters allows you to accommodate the most necessary and equip a shower area behind a glass partition. Each of the elements can be mounted on a special installation located behind the wall. Less occupied space means more freedom of movement, which even allows the door to open inward. According to the rules of SNiP, this cannot be done, but situations are different, especially if in the apartment, in addition to a small bathroom, there is also a very narrow corridor. Advice for such a layout: install a door leaf opening limiter so as not to break the glass partition behind it. Option 3 If we turn again to the norms andrules, the distance between the bidet and the toilet should be at least a quarter of a meter. In order for the approach to the bath or shower stall to be as free as possible, it is necessary to leave 0.7-1.2 meters of area. Under the washbasin, especially if it is wall-mounted, you can install a cabinet for storing accessories or a shelf for clean towels. The use of various mounting kits will provide additional space for placing, for example, a washing machine. Option 4 In narrow bathrooms it costs generallyabandon the bath in favor of a cheap corner or cabin. But if you absolutely want to lie in the foam, then it is best to place the bath along the long wall, and next to it - in parallel - the sink. The optimal distance to the toilet, according to SNiP, should be about 0.6 meters, with a mandatory "allowance" of 0.25 meters on each side. There must be an approach to the sink for washing, and for convenience, 0.7 meters of free space should be left in front of it. Option 5 Minimum shower space - 0.9 x 0.9meter, so if it is possible to make a corner using the ledge in which the communications are laid, then you need to use it. Geberit mounting elements fit into the smallest of spaces. Inside the shower enclosure, you can organize small niches on any of the side walls for storing cosmetics, shampoos, washcloths and other trifles. And faucets must be installed in the wall. Option 6 In a situation where the shower areaseparated from the rest only by glass, the pallet is made flush with the floor. All the drained water goes into the built-in ladder so that a global flood does not start in the room. It is better to get the partition transparent, not matte, so that the space does not decrease visually. Indeed, in a bathroom with an area of 3 square meters, every millimeter counts. Option 7 Such a layout is also common,when the bath is along one wall, and everything else is opposite it. The advantage of this arrangement is that the toilet is completely unobtrusive when entering the room. And where the bidet is, you can make two sinks, so that in the morning you can brush your teeth, shave or make beauty with your soul mate. Or with children. Option 8 The bathroom is the most beautifula washbasin is generally recognized as a piece of furniture and plumbing. And if you can see it from the entrance, together with the obligatory mirror, it will have a beneficial effect on the first impression of the room. In the scheme considered under number 8, all the same installations from the company are used - for a washbasin, for a toilet bowl and for a shower stall. A few more items can easily fit into this layout: a bidet, or a washing machine, or a small cabinet, or even a changing table. Option 9 In general, any mirror in the bathroomwill visually expand the space. Or become the focus of a room's design through its color, size or shape. Do not forget about heated towel rails - with this layout, they have their very place along the right wall. Option 10 And also directly opposite the entrance you canexpand, for example, a tile panel, if the wall is not occupied by anything. It will immediately catch your eye. And if we look directly at this layout, a small flaw is revealed - there is little space at the beginning. Due to the proximity of the entrance and shower enclosure, the space around the washbasin is severely limited (especially on the right side). In the case of such a room, it is better to use scheme 9. Or the very first one - the one with a split layout.
