How to create a functional bathroom

If you want a new bathroom that is practical and functional, you have come to the right place. You don’t have to sacrifice aesthetics to have a bathroom that is useful and convenient for your daily hygiene and care routines. Today we are going to help you to create a functional bathroom that also lo

A functional bathroom is one that lets you move about easily and store everything you need, so that it is as convenient as possible to use. Think about how you are going to use the room so that it contains everything you consider essential. How it looks is also fundamental, as each element has a decorative function as well as serving a practical purpose.

We often see bathrooms that offer endless scope for beautiful designs but they are way bigger than those in most homes. However, even the smallest bathroom can shine with its own light and be highly practical if you know how to give it the right touch.

In small bathrooms, selecting suitable compact elements is key, as is the choice of colours.

Shower or bathtub? Functional bathrooms to suit everyone

Both options are suitable for functional bathrooms. Everything will depend on your specific needs and the space available.

In a very spacious bathroom, having both a bathtub and a shower is the perfect solution for different family members to use it at the same time. 

In medium-large bathrooms, especially if there are small children in the house, a bathtub like the practical Marne model is ideal, allowing children to play at bath time.

A shower is the best solution if space is limited, as it takes up a smaller area than a bathtub and can be adapted to the space available. Moreover, for elderly people or people with reduced mobility, an accessible shower is essential.  

Furniture for functional bathrooms

Regardless of size, adequate storage is a must in any functional bathroom, so it is essential to find the right furniture.

The Marne unit with twin washbasins is a good choice if you have the space and your dream is to have a functional bathroom for two. If you share a bathroom with other people, it can be much more convenient to choose bathroom units with two washbasins and a large mirror.

Wall-mounted units are a practical choice. They provide storage solutions to keep everything out of sight so that the bathroom looks neat and tidy while being really practical, as they make it easier to clean the floor.

Functional bathrooms: Washbasins and taps

Other elements such as the washbasin and taps can also make your bathroom more practical and functional.

If you don't have enough space for a wash-stand, the Acro Compact pedestal washbasin with Curve taps is an excellent choice. Another good option is a washbasin on a counter-top to accompany the Marne cabinet. The counter-top gives you space for all the items you need to get ready for your day.
