The decoration is usually thought of in environments where we spend most of our time, right? And where is the bathroom in this story? For years of being relegated to a lesser place, the bathroom has once again gained prominence in the decorative world.
Nowadays bathroom decoration is successful and everyone wants to present a beautiful, comfortable, and functional space. But how to do it?
Bathroom decoration: what do you need to know first?
Before even starting to plan the bathroom decor, it is important to pay attention to some important issues so as not to run the risk of seeing everything go down the drain (literally, in some cases). Follow:
Humidity is something that is always present in bathrooms and it cannot be different. The space concentrates three important sources of water: sink, toilet, and shower, and in the latter case, in addition to humidity, there is still steam.
Therefore, all decorations must be designed to resist the humidity that comes from these places.
The bathroom is one of the most functional spaces in the house. The time we spend inside it is always performing some activity, whether taking a shower, using the toilet, or brushing our teeth. Therefore, it must also be planned from a functionality point of view. This means that the bathroom must function at its full capacity and there can be no blockages or obstacles that prevent tasks from being carried out.
It is also important to assess who will be using the bathroom. Children and the elderly need greater security when carrying out activities so as not to suffer accidents, as well as the bathroom must also be adapted if there is someone in the house with limitations or physical and motor difficulties.
In practice, think like this: the bathroom can and should be beautiful, but above all, it must be functional.
The bathroom also usually has reduced measures, that is, it is not the largest room in the house. And the decor needs to be thought out for this small environment. Here again, functionality is important, but something else counts as comfort.
A small bathroom cannot fail to be comfortable for the user. Therefore, if you have to choose between a purely aesthetic decorative object for an object that has a function in the bathroom, stick with the second option.
Complete work or occasional changes
Finally, it’s also worth considering how far you intend to go with the decor. For some people, complete work is the best solution, especially when the bathroom has problems with infiltration, leakage, and humidity.
In other cases, it may be that specific changes that do not require complex reforms are more than enough. To find out what your case is, assess the current situation of your bathroom and, above all, the budget available for this endeavor.
