Beautiful Bathroom Designs That Are Functional Too

February 14, 2023

An appealing, stylish bathroom is a highly sought-after room for most homes. That’s because a bathroom is supposed to be a mini escape whenever someone walks into it, a place for reflection and relaxation. However, in addition to having a bathroom that looks good, it also needs to be functional. No one wants to enter a bathroom where it’s awkward to use the things they want to use. While there’s no such thing as a one-size-fits-all bathroom solution, consider these design elements that can help to deliver a beautiful yet functional bathroom.

Keep it Simple

People tend to think they need to design an over-the-top bathroom with plenty of curved lines and decor to make a statement. However, this is not necessarily the case. Simple bathrooms can also make big statements. Try building a bathroom that is simple and straight. When done correctly, a simple bathroom will exude contemporary design while giving homeowners hassle-free functionality. 


Keep Colors Fresh and Calming

The best thing you can do for your bathroom, especially a small one, is to paint it with a fresh and calming color. Because a bathroom is supposed to be somewhat of an oasis, you want to evoke that feeling in every design aspect you do. Colors evoke emotion. To evoke calm feelings, paint your bathroom with a muted light color. 


Light it Up

Not only does lighting keep the bathroom safe, but it also creates ambiance. Brighter white lights can make a bathroom feel more open, and warm yellow lights can make a bathroom feel cozy. No matter what lighting option you choose, make sure to have plenty of it. You can incorporate more lighting into your bathroom by installing a mirror with a lighted frame or a large light fixture over your vanity. 


A Walk-in Shower

If you have a small bathroom, it can certainly benefit from a walk-in shower. A walk-in shower with a glass unit can turn an ordinary, dull-looking bathroom into a beautiful and functional one. A walk-in shower gives more space to change and get ready without compromising style. The glass shower unit also makes the bathroom look larger. 


Floating Vanity 

Want to make your bathroom look bigger and allow for more storage? Try installing a floating vanity. Wall-mounted floating vanities are a stylish design choice for bathrooms that come with ample amounts of storage space. The structure will make your bathroom look bigger while giving you enough space to put important items. It also makes the bathroom feel more light and airy since light is able to bounce off the bathroom floor.
