Fortunately modern bathroom always seems spacious enough
We make design
The process of registration of the design can be divided into several milestones:
Next, consider how to decorate a bathroom design at each stage.
Identifying with the stylistic direction
bath dimensions in Khrushchev impose some restrictions on the choice of style. In particular, it is necessary to abandon the realization of pretentious classical lines that imply the existence of a plurality of free space in the room.
Clean lines and glossy surface - the characteristics of high-tech style
In a small bathroom look good straight and clean lines, as well as a minimum of parts. Therefore, it is desirable to choose from such areas as:
Minimalism involves minimum of detail in the interior - the perfect solution for a small bathroom
- Sea style.
Due to the severity of a certain modern style it is also suitable for small bathrooms
If you are drawn to rural areas, it is possible to design the interior in the style of Provence, or country. I must say that in the bathroom this design looks quite interesting and original.
Bright colors and rustic atmosphere - the characteristics of the style of Provence
Around the selected style "built" your entire interior design from the beginning to the end.
Bright finish visually make the room more spacious
Choose finishing materials
Decoration materials must be selected so that visually expand the space. Recall that the "blur" the boundaries of light-colored surface. Particularly well cope with this problem glossy coating.
Also, do not forget that the material should be resistant to moisture and temperature extremes, to renovated bathroom turned durable. Next, as an example here are a few options for materials that meet all these requirements.
Self-leveling floor shines and reflects the surface - it helps to visually make the room above
finishing the floor. materials:
- Of liquid polymer floors. Represent gloss coating, which can be of any color. Such a floor will look great in all modern interiors, such as Hi-tech or minimalism.
The three-dimensional floor can transform the bath room at the sea shore
If the interior is decorated in a nautical style, it is possible to perform three-dimensional image of floor on the marine theme. It must be said that the three-dimensional floor can visually make the room above, not to mention the fact that they are the highlight of any interior.
The lack of three-dimensional floor - their high price, which starts from 3000-4000 rubles per 1m2;
Ceramic tiles on the floor - it is practical and durable
- Ceramic tile. Classic floor finishes that is suitable for any interior. This coating is attractive and at the same time practical. The only tiled floor quite slippery and unpleasant to the touch;
Linoleum Wood looks perfectly with wooden furniture
- Linoleum. This coating does not require representation. The only thing I should mention that linoleum is usually mimics the wooden floor, so great for the implementation of rural design styles.
Plastic panels may look rich, despite budget this material
Decorating the walls. You can opt for one of the following finishing materials:
- Plastic panels. Enough budget option finishes, however, allows you to draw walls stylish and beautiful. Thanks to the huge selection of designs, plastic panels can pick up for any interior;
Ceramic tiles - the most popular material for finishing bathroom walls because of practicality and attractive design
- Ceramic tile. More expensive, but at the same time and Bole durable option of finishing. Tile can be combined with other finishing materials. In this case, the tiles used in the areas that are most in contact with water;
Painted walls in the bathroom can be of any color or hue to suit your taste
Painting. The modern version of the walls, which allows you to obtain a silky matt surface of any color or hue.
I must say that modern paint much more durable than oil, which stained the wall in the Soviet times. Furthermore, it is completely odorless and dries within a few hours.
The paint can be combined with a tile - flooring resists moisture better and is easier to clean
The only drawback is that properly prepare the wall before painting it is necessary hands - poshpaklevat them and sanded. Otherwise, make beautiful and smooth surface will not work.
Glossy stretch ceiling visually make the room above
ceiling trim. You can use almost all the materials that you will decorate the walls. If you want to select the ceiling will look good following finishes:
- Tensioner glossy ceiling. This cover always looks modern and impressive. Thanks to a glossy surface, the room will appear higher than it actually is;
Suspended ceiling of its kind will complement the modern design of the bathroom
Suspended ceiling. Good alternative tensioner ceiling, which is a frame structure.
As the finish ceiling material can be used plastic or metal panels, which may have very different design, up to the mirror surface.
Mirrored ceiling - the best way to visually make the room above
Glossy film not only not afraid of water, but also is able to hold on to it in case of flooding from the top.
Bath in light pastel colors will appear more spacious
Color spectrum. Regarding the choice of color, as I said above, it is best to decorate the room with light colors.
If you want to use it the white color, the interior can vary the contrast in the form of Finishing materials of black (dark gray) color used in some parts of the walls or floor. This color scheme looks great in the interior in high-tech style.
The combination of different trim colors can vary the interior design
In the case of pastel tones, you can select individual sections of the walls bright colors, which also make the interior more interesting and varied. The only sure that all the colors were combined with each other.
A few bright accents on a light background are able to "revive" the interior
Planning and selection of plumbing
An important step is the design layout and the selection of plumbing. From it depends on how the room will turn out a practical and convenient.
Options for bathroom planning
To do this, you need to make a plan on paper, exactly specifying the size of a bathroom. It is desirable to also identify the location of risers, to select the optimal location of plumbing.
The standard width of the bathroom is 1,6-1,9m. To increase it is possible to combine a bathroom. Typically, the union bath and toilet allows you to add to the width of the room has a meter and a half.
Example remodeling a bathroom with a shower stall transfer to the toilet
The width of a standard bath usually allows you to position near a bath and wash basin. If the bathroom combined, usually near a wall mounted sink and toilet. In this case, the sink is located halfway between the bathroom and toilet.
Standard Room area is too small to install an additional walk-in shower or find a place for the washing machine. However, there are a few tricks that allow you to not give up on all of these plumbing fixtures.
A combined bathtub-shower will not give up the shower stall even in a small Khrushchev
These tricks include:
Combined bath. The sanitary appliance is a conventional bath, one side of which wraps shower.
Of course, the use of such a "combine" is less convenient than a separate bathtub and shower. But you do not have to sacrifice one of the devices;
Cabin with deep tray - bath alternative
Shower with a deep tray. This solution can be recommended for those who need more bathroom for domestic use and for the adoption of water treatments enough shower. Deep pan allow to wash things in it, bathe the children or, for example, pets.
Only when you select the pallet size, consider the size of the bathroom, so it fit all the necessary plumbing fixtures. Therefore, with the size of the best to decide on a plan diagram of a bathroom;
Sink water lily will install in the bathroom washing machine
Sink "water lily". From the usual sink plumbing fixtures is particularly draining system that allows to provide maximum space below. This makes it possible to place under it a small washing machine with side loading.
I must say that there are on sale sets consisting of a washing machine and sink. They are ideally suited to each other, both in size and design;
Sink water lily can be installed above the bath - it just saves space
If you do not want to combine a bathroom at the expense of practicality, it is possible to move the toilet in the bathroom, and the toilet to install shower cubicle. This will install in the bathroom most of the washing machine, and still have a free area.
Glass shelves and mirrored cabinet visually not take away space
The choice of furniture
bathroom size in Khrushchev does not establish here a cabinet or other dimensional furniture. Therefore, it can be replaced by open shelves on which to put all the small accessories. Try to place them on bottles, jars and boxes are grouped, otherwise the room will seem cluttered.
Neat hanging lockers and cabinet will help to solve the problem of storage accessories
It is also a good solution is to install a mirrored cabinet above the sink. This will not only solve the problem of accommodation of accessories for the bath, but also provides the room mirror.
The small bathroom is better to use glass shelves, as they do not take up space visually.
Glass shelves and modern look is not visually take up space
If the length of the bathroom, you can place a wide cupboard under the sink. In this case the space below the pedestal is generally used for storing detergents, brushes and sponges. The second branch, located to the left or right side of the shell, suitable for storing bath towels and bathrobes.
Instead of broad pedestals can be used narrow and tall pencil.
Narrow and tall pencil can become a place to store bath towels and bathrobes
If there is none, take a storage space for accessories pencil case or a cabinet in the bathroom, which usually remains free. For example, you can make a small locker above the door, and keep it clean towels.
Spotlights will evenly illuminate the bathroom
The lighting and decor
On the way it will be perceived visually bathroom interior, largely influenced by lighting and decor. These two points should be paid no less attention than the choice of plumbing or decoration.
Lighting. The most important thing - to correctly position the lighting fixtures. The use of a central chandelier should be abandoned.
Backlit mirror over the sink - especially practical solution
The fact that the central lighting device visually reduces the space of the room. But the point in the bathroom lighting Khrushchev, located not only in the center but also in the ceiling perimeter, - make the room bright and airy.
Sconces help to decorate the room and highlight the functional areas bathrooms
Also do not forget about lighting. Standard - the location of fixtures at the mirror, and bath area lighting. For these purposes, you can hang on the wall sconces.
Large mirror - to visually increase the space of the room and add to it the light
Decor. As the decorative elements can be recommended:
- A large mirror. The practical element, which allows visually expand the space and make the room brighter;
Textiles can help make the room more comfortable
- Textile. Several beautiful towels and mat not only beautify the space, but also make the room cozier;
- Decorative lighting. As a rule, for this purpose use LED strip. They can be decorated with furniture.
Lighting skirting boards can be implemented using LED strips
Furthermore, very beautiful look LEDs disposed in the ceiling or floor baseboards;
In the photo - an example of decorating the bathroom vinyl stickers
- Vinyl stickers. The use of this decorative element allows to decorate plain walls and thereby bring the interior of some variety.
Too many do not use decor to the room in the bathroom did not look cluttered.
