Among the latest trends in bedroom decoration there is a current that is leaving feeling unhurried but without pause: the bathrooms integrated into the bedroom. And it is that every time there are more adepts to this particular way of understanding these intimate environments. If you are one of them, today we give you the keys to successfully achieve that bedroom and bathroom share the same space. Keep reading and take notes.
That open spaces They are the order of the day in terms of decoration is no secret. From the well-known loft that arose decades ago to the diaphanous housing without barely partitions, it is one of the tendencies increasingly frequent in interior design. And, although the most usual thing is to find the kitchen open to the living room, the bathrooms integrated in the bedroom are also increasingly frequent.
There are several reasons to choose this type of approach to the distribution of space in the most intimate areas of the house. One of them is the lack of space. If we have a small bedroom and a tiny bathroom, we may gain square meters of use if we dispense partitions and integrate the bathroom in the bedroom, with its bathtub included.
Advantages and disadvantages of integrated bathrooms
The partitions compartmentalize the space. Although saying so may seem obvious, in reality it is appropriate to mention this phrase (and even read and write it) to keep it always present. In fact, this is one of the reasons why the integrated bathrooms in the room succeed. When the meters are scarce it's worth it Share them to expand them. The dimensions of your house may be the same, but the conception of space changes markedly.
Another interesting reason to bet on the integrated bathrooms is the interest in encourage the circulation of natural light. Keep in mind that how many less partitions and there are divisions, the greater the luminosity inside.
So, if you have a house with a dark and a bit sad bedroom and bathroom and you like open spaces, you are the perfect candidate to bet on the integrated bathrooms. Of course, you have to know how to raise them; especially to try to minimize the main drawback: the loss of privacy.
Minimum separations to structure the space
Even if you are a fan of the diaphanous environments, It will be necessary to have some separation, even minimal, between the area of the bed and the bathroom. Can be a mid-rise wall that acts as headboard on one side, and serves on the other to house the toilets or any other corner of the bathroom.
Another idea is create unevenness in the ground to delimit the different zones, for example with steps. Or use certain pieces of furniture to divide slightly both areas: the sleeping and the toilet.
In this sense, one of the essential requirements that we must take into account before deciding on integrated bathrooms is to have the necessary space to be able to circular with comfort for the bedroom. It is useless to connect our room with the bathroom if afterwards we can not move with a minimum freedom.
Other ideas to divide
The glass walls they are another way of separating the space between the bedroom and the bathroom. The bathroom is isolated but the light circulates freely and the sense of spaciousness remains intact. In the case of the toilet area, it should be closed and separated with a translucent or opaque glass panel, for example, since it is in this place where privacy must be unquestionable.
As well the coverings can help us to delimit the spaces, choosing different models and colors for each area, both for the floor and for the walls.
The bathtub, a decorative element
One of the things that I like about the bathrooms integrated in the bedroom is the way they elevate the bathtub, understanding it as an object of luxury and pleasure. In fact, this way of posing the bedroom is closely related to how cleanliness is understood in category hotels. In them, the bedrooms with bathrooms in the same space are elegant and glamorous.
If you like the idea and want to recreate it, do not hesitate choose an exempt bathtub as beautiful as possible depending on your tastes and the style of your bedroom. It can be more or less classic, vintage with legs, or very avant-garde. The really important thing is that it decorates the space by itself.
As you can see, few things are needed in order to have integrated bathrooms in the bedroom. It does not take much space or very valuable furniture. Rather it is a matter of space distribution. You dare?
