Toilet and Bath Floor Plan

By KBC Kitchen & Bathroom

Toilet and Bath Floor Plan

The kind of fixtures you buy for a bath remodeling will depend on how much you have to spend, and on how large a room you are planning to remodel. Cost of bathroom fixtures varies with size, style, fittings, and materials used. Regarding bathroom layouts, be sure to allow at least one and half feet between the front of the sink and the front of the toilet. There should be two feet between the front of any fixture and the wall across from it. Minimum bathroom floor area needed for a person cleaning the tub is 30 inches (along the side of the tub) by 20 inches.

At the side of the fixtures allow at least two inches between toilet tank and sink or vanity and three inches between toilet and bathtub and four inches between toilet and the wall at the side of it. The best bathroom floor plans will locate the toilet so the large waste pipe goes between and parallel to the floor joists rather than cutting through them. This saves cutting the joists and may save costly floor framing. You can also save on the cost of piping by placing all the fixtures along one wall in new bath remodel. It is best to allow six inches between sink vanity and the wall. Allow more than the minimum of space if you can. Leave room for storage cabinets and towel bars. Rearrange your design until you have the fixtures in the best possible layout.

7×8 Small Modern Bathroom Designs

By KBC Kitchen & Bathroom

7x8 Small Modern Bathroom Designs

If your bathroom can be as large as a 7×8 bathroom floor plan, you can arrange the bathroom fixtures in a number of ways. Moreover, the extra floor space with small bathroom designs this size makes it possible to use the bathroom as a dressing room. This is also an economical arrangement if all the fixtures are placed along the 7 foot wall across from the door; you can save on the cost of piping by placing all the fixtures along one wall. To the left of the door is a floor-to-ceiling cabinet for towels and bath supplies. The tub has been recessed by building a wall between tub and the cabinet. The key to achieving well-designed modern bathrooms is to make it feel more spacious. Now, more than ever before, bathroom fixtures are available in a beautiful selection of colors, materials, sizes and styles. With small in size bathroom fixtures, you can visually open up the space. This is a popular solution adopted by many professional designers.

In the 7×8 modern bathroom design, you will need an overhead bathroom light fixture as well as light at the mirror. For most small bathroom designs, a light over the mirror, or bathroom sconces at the sides, will be enough. For side light fixtures, placement about 5-1/2 feet from floor to center of bulb is the right height. Place fixtures so the light shines on both sides of the face instead of in the mirror. For safety, use wall switches rather than pull chains for the light fixtures. In the bathroom it is usually possible to touch both water and metal while using electric bathroom appliances or switching on lights. There is a great danger of shock if wiring is defective, or equipment is not properly grounded. So, try to locate switches and convenience outlets out of reach of anyone in the tub and away from pipes or other metal objects in small bathroom designs.

A Small Bathroom Decorating in Japanese Style

By KBC Kitchen & Bathroom

small-compact-bathroom-in-japanese-style

Japanese interiors are always about harmony. This harmony can be achieved with right colors and themed patterns. In this case two basic colors were used. Ceramic tiles on the walls are beige while the floor and furniture are dark brown. White sanity ware and stainless steel water fixtures blend with surroundings very well.

There are many interesting solutions in this bathroom. For example a drywall structure hides all these ugly pipes and forms shelves for bathroom accessories. A stepped wall of glass blocks separates the space on different zones. Sakura flowers decorate the bathroom and make it romantic and beautiful.

Outlined Bathroom Fixtures Mix Form & Function

By KBC Kitchen & Bathroom

outlined-bathroom-fixtures

There is a raw beauty in the shape of certain household objects often masked in modern design – these objects, by contrast, show off both their outside lines and internal workings.

From Althea Ceramica: “Outline is an impassioned tribute to the style and the spirit of the 60’s. Forms never before seen, unusual, characterized by an “emptying” of volumes which gives life to a design, or better a concept, from which spring interesting aspects regarding living the bathroom environment and its protagonists.” Read more »

3 Spectacularly Unique Bathroom Sinks

By KBC Kitchen & Bathroom

Spectacularly-Unique-Bathroom-Sinks

Maybe long ago, when bathrooms were little more than tiny wooden huts in the yard, they could get by as purely functional spaces. But the modern home calls for bathrooms that are relaxing and comforting as well as functional. Using a smooth mineral composite material called Minacor, German manufacturer HANSA International makes some of the most distinctive basin/faucet pairs in the world.

The HANSALATRAVA starts off with a faucet that presents water proudly to the world rather than simply streaming it straight into a basin. The flat faucet looks more like a sculpture than a bathroom fixture as it allows water to cascade down into the elegant basin. A basin which features no central indentation, but rather guides water down on a gentle slope. Both parts of this pair introduce shapes and design elements never before utilized in bathroom fittings.
