How to equip a small bathroom: an example from Moscow

If the phrase "small bathroom"It makes you feel doomed and disappointed - this article is for you! We on a real example will prove that regardless of the area the bathroom can be functional, original and beautiful. Unfortunately, almost all of the standard apartments are not very large, to put it mildly. And if you do not carry out any cardinal re-planning, you need to either reconcile with a tight space, or take a good look at this issue and try to correctly use every millimeter of your bathroom. And to make it clearer how to do it, here's a visual example from Moscow designer Sophie Mu - with her help it turned out to be incredibly stylish, spacious and functional. Sophie Mu, a designer She has been designing interior design for seven years, most of which she dedicated to small apartments. She likes to work with space and zoning, create new scripts and layouts. Sophie is a rationalist, she prefers functionality to excessive decoration, but likes made with sparkle and mood. Has a higher education in the field of architectural design. Sofimu.com Our main characters for whom this bathroom was made is a young married couple. They are people who are keen on music, traveling, they are inspired by nature and bright colors of life. From the first minutes of dating it was clear that these are very creative and extraordinary personalities. The apartment is located in a typical high-rise building of the P-3 series, but immediately it became clear that the interior needs them completely, not at all typical. To the bathroom there were many wishes based primarily on its functions: shower, bath, washing machine, sink, storage. And it was necessary to realize this in full. Sophie Mu, designer: - Very important moment for the bathroom was the presence of a large mirror. It is located on the left wall and visually visibly expands the space. With him, the room ceased to be close and began to be perceived easily. Sofimu.com The area of ​​the bathroom is 2.8 square meters. In the original version, the bath was in front of the entrance, and the left wall had a sink. The designer decided to completely replace the whole block. After having re-piped the pipes and improved the existing waterproofing, the bathtub with a shower stand (a rain shower + hand shower) stood on the right wall, and a sink and a washing machine were placed at the left. And the sink is sewn under the countertop and rests on the brackets, so that a washing machine with a depth of 45 centimeters could stand in a corner. In the project, the main task was to make a bright andBright room. To ensure that this small space did not seem to be tight, white tiles of an economical Russian brand were used. But you see, just a white bathroom - it's so boring, especially for young people! Therefore, Sophie Mu decided that without any kind of interesting idea here can not do. She suggested to customers the theme of figures falling from the game "Tetris" falling on a white background. I must say, they liked this idea, and what is most interesting is that they independently took up its implementation! Sophie Mu, the designer: - It was a heroic epic, in the course of which the children drew a picture on cubes, recreated it from pieces of a mosaic on a grid, then pasted on a paint tape, signed each element and watched closely that the tiler laid everything as it should. Only thanks to their titanic efforts it was possible to realize this complex idea. And the main thing in all this is that the panel with "tetris" was not just a design idea, but an adventure for the inhabitants of the house. Everything ended well and looks like it would be desirable to quickly drop a new figure - or rather, to strip (still playing "tetris" in childhood?). Sofimu.com The worktop here is like the finishing touch of a picture: Bright and joyful. It charges positively during washing, especially in the morning before work. She has a cunning bend, and it appeared because the distance at the entrance is less than the required depth for installation. Therefore, the craftsmen who made the countertop to order made the radial bevel soft enough to not interfere with the passage. By the way, the mixer has chosen a wall type, which is the best option in this situation. Sophie Mu, designer: - I want to note that the most enthusiastic enthusiasts of this space are the customers themselves. They picked up a bright image, carefully and gradually selected every detail of the accessories. Towels, soap dispenser and even a candle: there is nothing superfluous and everything is very much in the topic. I can not deny myself the pleasure of praising this approach once again, because it is so important to continue the ideas of the designer in the further unique life of space.
