Having a toilet or bathroom is common in today’s houses, you just have to look at the real estate ads, and yet we tend to overlook it when it comes to decorating it. Although considered a minor stay, it is, in reality, an almost mandatory ‘ stop ‘ not only for family members but also, especially during the summer and Christmas, for occasional guests who spend a few days with you and the guests to a barbecue or a small meeting to tell you about the vacation plans. Therefore, it is important that it be functional, but also flirtatious and pleasant, like the one in this Next proposal. AreVery practical decorating ideas will help you achieve this.
Treat yourself ‘deco’
Most of the time we are satisfied with a simple clean and functional one, without thinking that since it is the ‘bathroom for everyone’ it receives many visits, becoming a showcase for the interior decoration of the rest of our home. Despite its meters, it can give a lot of itself decoratively speaking. In addition, you can integrate it into the rest or let it go on its own and triumph alone. You can give it a baroque air, put ‘kitsch ‘ paintings, use daring colors that you would never put in another room and less in the main bathroom, bet on black or patterns, if you have chosen plain fabrics in other places, play with a wallpaperthat takes you to distant places … This proposal by Adriana Nicolau, free, wild and different, shows you how much a smaller space can do for the total decoration of the house.
With storage capacity
Even in XS bathrooms it is always possible to find storage space to help you keep order. The shelves and racks are the best options, but neither should forget the mirrors closet or auxiliary parts, such as wheeled carts, which can be hidden under the sink, in the event that there is no furniture dramatically enhances or placed anywhere corner where it is out of the way, as in this environment of Beija Flor. If you have enough space, the bathroom can be a good place to store your ironing board or vacuum cleaner.
Make it a special corner
Have fun and bring out your most daring streak with a whiteboard to receive messages, photos, postcards, a poster or even a map of the world so that your guests can point out the destinations they think are suitable for you. This space by Virginia Gasch for Casa Decor 2020 is a perfect example of how daring always pays off. Wallpaper, mosaic, mirrors and a curved piece of furniture are designing a renewed and current ‘Art Deco’ environment. It is also a good idea to put a mini bookstore or some game. Be careful though, as so much fun can cause traffic jams at rush hour.
As equipped as a hotel
We know that your home is not a hotel, but why not make the toilet look the same? To do this, do not leave anything to chance and make things easy for your visits, anticipating their needs with the ‘ amenities ‘ of a five-star establishment. Leave single-use toothbrushes, toothpaste, and other grooming and beauty supplies, like a comb or shower cap, on hand. You can store them in the mirror cabinet, as in this proposal by Villeroy & Boch , in the vanity unit or put them in basketsor decorative boxes. Of course, keep the sink area clear. If your home has a swimming pool, it is convenient that there is also a sunscreen.
With good aroma
Perfumes, also those of the house, have the ability not only to ‘camouflage‘ bad smells but also to provide a pleasant aroma that makes you feel comfortable and relaxed, as in this Caffe Latte Home proposal. It is important that you ventilate the bathroom every day, 5-10 minutes will suffice, and that you place a fresh and light air freshener, not too intense, that evokes the countryside or the beach. Another good idea is to put aromatic plants or flowers, such as eucalyptus or mint, that add subtlety to a pleasant atmosphere. Don’t forget the candles, which enhance a calm atmosphere and provide a good smell.
With everything you need at hand
The perfect hostess must take care of every detail so that the guests are as comfortable as in their own home and avoid annoying situations, such as there is no paper in the toilet. For this reason, any guest bathroom should have replacement of toilet paper. You can store the roll (or rolls) in the vanity unit, place a basket for this purpose, as in this proposal by Leroy Merlin, or use a wall-mounted roll holder. In this aspect you can also be classic and use the white of all life or give a touch of color to match the rest of the environment. Another touch that will say a lot about your work as a host is Post a sign or indicator that the bathroom is occupied and prevents people at the door and interruptions.
The right pieces
The usual thing is that it is a mini space, two square meters are enough to house it, so the number of elements and accessories must be in line with the proportions. So, the more meters, the more pieces you can integrate, even install a shower tray. Of course, think that a toilet only needs a toilet and a sink to provide service, so do not clutter it so that a pin does not enter. Keep in mind that there are mini sinks, like those in this Duravit proposal, that do not subtract meters, and that to use the toilet comfortably you need about 50 cm of free space in front. It is not about emulating the cabin of the Marx brothers. Small, yes, comfortable, too!
Turn it into a secret garden
If the bathroom has a window, since plants generally need a little natural light, the greenery will bring vitality and joy. On the floor, on shelves or on the countertop, as shown in this space by Carrillo Proyectos, the plants create a cozy and bucolic atmosphere, transforming an environment that is often somewhat cold (tiles, white) into an authentic indoor garden. An opportunity to have fun, not just the species you choose the Poto, the fern and Sanseviera are two good options), but also thanks to the wide variety of pots and containers.
Pay attention to the towels
Both in number and quality. Even if it is the courtesy bathroom, the towels have to be ‘good‘ with a soft and fluffy touch. At least you should place a sink, but the ideal is that you put several of different sizes, but of the same set, to cover the different needs, especially if the toilet has a shower. You can hang them on towel racks, on a heated towel rail, fold them in a drawer or place them in plain sight in baskets or boxes, for which they must be perfectly folded.
