Unlike the family bathroom , an open bathroom as part of a parental suite is a private area.
You can arrange and decorate it according to your personal taste. Again, unlike many other parts of the house, this space is completely yours!
An open bathroom is suited to distinct types of planning: it can be a comfortable room that is divided into two spaces but it can also be a small room that you want to join together with a bathroom.
This type of refurbishment does not require a lot of space, but instead gives the sensation of space with the openness of the room.
You can mark the passage between the bathroom and the bedroom by a low wall , a platform, a color change or a change of flooring.
To keep harmony with the rest of the parental suite and especially for a bathroom, don’t divide the rooms by using multiple colors. Choose a monochrome atmosphere that will give the impression of having more space, an essential element in this type of refurbishment.
Given that they will be visible from your bedroom you should opt for plain furniture. Define the storage you’ll need in advance: for towels , cosmetics , makeup, laundry… You will also have to choose between individual or shared cabinets.
Unless you really don't have a choice, don't install a washing machine and dryer in your open bathroom.
Obviously, it’s the same for your toilets!
If the supply of light coming into the room seems insufficient , plan to incorporate natural light as much as possible.
This type of layout requires a little discipline when living as a couple with different schedules. Take into account the sound of water and the use of lighting.
Especially for this type of remodeling, which combines technical installations, refurbishment and decoration, set your budget as accurately as possible . This will allow you to choose the most suitable elements and materials.
If you have a large budget, and for either a partial or complete remodeling, entrust everything to a professional.
On the contrary, if you supervise the work yourself , ask for quotes. Rely on the more detailed ones, which are not necessarily the most expensive, and always add an additional 10% for unforeseen expenses.
