As housing prices continue to rise, more and more people choose second-hand houses with superior geographical location and moderate prices. However, the old house means that the old design, especially the houses built in the 1980s and 1990s, generally has the phenomenon of narrow space and unreasonable function arrangement in the bathroom. So, how can we decorate a comfortable and convenient "big bathroom"
clever use of light can well change the sense of space. Bright lighting can make people feel the improvement of space, while dim light will make people feel narrow and uncomfortable. The lighting of second-hand houses is usually not very good, so to create a sense of space, we must first start with lighting
■ the designer reminds that it is difficult to change the opening of windows in the bathroom of second-hand houses, so we can consider enhancing the indoor lighting, for example, using frosted glass, painted glass, single-sided glass and other glass materials to make partitions and sliding doors between the bathroom and other indoor spaces, which can not only save space, but also improve the lighting of the bathroom, killing two birds with one stone
good layout can increase the utilization rate of space, which is more important for the narrow second-hand room bathroom. As far as the 4 square meter bathroom is concerned, the key is to reasonably arrange the washbasin, toilet and shower. The basic layout of the "three major items" is set from low to high: that is, starting from the door of the bathroom, and gradually deepening. Among them, the most ideal layout is that the washing table faces the toilet door, and the toilet is close to its side, and the shower room is set at the innermost end
■ the designer reminds that if you choose the layout of dry and wet zones, you must separate the washbasin, toilet and channel from the bathing area, and try to reasonably arrange the position of washbasin and toilet on the premise of ensuring the channel
make good use of corners
Chinese people have always paid attention to the squareness of the living pattern, so people are used to the horizontal and vertical way of thinking. They think that next to the wall and arranged in line can make the space compact, but they often ignore the design of the corners of the room. In fact, reasonable planning of corner space can not only give full play to its maximum utilization value, but also enhance the artistry of the whole home environment
■ the designer reminds that making good use of corners can increase the sense of space in the bathroom and make it look brighter. This requires breaking the usual thinking, especially in the bathroom with a very small area. For example, you can put the usually flat washbasin and toilet on the diagonal position of the bathroom, and the middle space is used for shower. The advantage of this arrangement is that it can not only increase the visual sense of space, but also increase the comfort of the shower
