Toilet functional partition

Usually, the bathroom can be divided into four core areas according to its functions: 1. Washing face and brushing teeth; 2. Relieving yourself; 3. Taking a bath; 4. Washing clothes. If the bathroom area is small, we can split and reorganize these four functional divisions in a reasonable way to maximize the limited space to meet our daily needs. For example, we can consider whether the washing machine can be placed on the balcony or the kitchen, and secondly, single out the face-washing functional area that is easiest.


Wash basin design

Especially during the current epidemics, the frequency of handwashing has greatly increased. Undercounter basins are very popular nowadays. They are not only good-looking, but also practical, and there is no dead corner to clean up. Usually there is some space all around, which can be used for toiletries.

The water retaining strip is installed on the ground, which can prevent water from flowing to the entire bathroom. Although the water retaining strip is not high, it can be used with floor drains and slopes. Don't worry about water flowing outside.

For the daily life, we can put the toiletries in the cabinet to avoid the clutter of the sink, and at the same time, it is quite convenient for us to take the items at hand.

The wall space behind the toilet can also be used for storage. The alcoves and shelves are simple and practical, and if some scattered items are placed here, it will not interfere with daily use.


As a kind of storage, the alcove is both practical and beautiful, very suitable for the bathroom. Usually, the thickness of the designed niche is about 15-20cm. If it is too shallow, its practicality will be reduced, and if too deep, it will not look beautiful. In addition, before begin excavating, we must confirm whether it is a load-bearing wall.
