Whether it’s a small half-bath or a large full-size bathroom, ensuring that the flow of a bathroom is optimized can help make the most of the space. Designing the ideal flow for any given bathroom will have a lot to do with the layout of the room and the desired style of the space.
For homeowners looking to redesign their bathroom’s flow, the following guide will outline four key steps to creating an optimal flow.
Do a Walkthrough
The first place to begin when designing the flow of a bathroom is with a walkthrough of the space. During the initial walkthrough, take note of the following:
- What is the central focus of the room’s design?
- How easy is it to navigate from one section of the bathroom to the next?
- Are there any fixtures placed in locations that don’t make logical sense?
The key to the initial walkthrough is to be as objective as possible. Try to look at the space through the eyes of a guest.
Focus on Aesthetics as Well as Function
Armed with notes from the initial walkthrough, the next step is to focus on the aesthetics of the room. Often, a bathroom’s flow is less than ideal because function was placed over the beauty of the space.
For example, it may have been functional to install a vanity with cabinets and a sink, but it might make more sense for the space and the aesthetics of the room to instead install a wall-mounted sink and loft storage cabinets above the area.
Additionally, there should be a centralized flow to the design of the room. Choosing one design motif and then incorporating it across all fixtures and accessories can help keep the design of the room flowing in one direction, rather than becoming a hodgepodge of miscellaneous styles. Something as simple as swapping out faucets, towel racks, and drains with matching finishes can help create a more optimal flow.
Don’t Be Afraid to Switch It Up
Creating the right flow for a bathroom should never be limited by how the bathroom is currently laid out. Don’t be afraid to think outside the box.
Fixtures can be moved, new sink styles incorporated, and entirely new designs implemented. If something doesn’t feel logical or cuts off the flow of the space, don’t hesitate to tear it out and start over.
