An interior designer advice; always bet for a suite
If we think of the concept of suite, especially traditionally and from the perspective of an interior designer, we think of a room that integrates a bathroom. Although this definition is correct, nowadays the suites go beyond this, they are fully integrated spaces where the rest area and the bathroom / changing room space come together in the same space and style.
This situation is very common when the home undergoes changes in terms of its inhabitants. That is to say, in other words, when, for example, the children of the home emancipate themselves and we have available spaces that previously occupied them. This is a moment where changes are made, and creating a suite, is one of them highly recommended. For many reasons.
First, because it gives the room a much more complete functionality and more game for decoration. For the convenience that it offers us to have all of this in the same space and for the separation of rooms within the same space. For this, and already going into conceptual details, there are several elements that coincide in the suites.
There is an indispensable element that results in light. Not only as we propose it but how we make it play with the use of mirrors. It is important to achieve the balance of warmth and good visibility. In this sense, a clear tendency of recent times is to place toilets with retro-illuminated mirrors, like mirrors in the dressing room. It is used a lot to use as a mirror for makeup and the last arrangements before leaving home.
In terms of structure, although everything comes together in the same space, for hygienic reasons and privacy, the bathroom area is usually removed minimally. Either with a glass separator, behind a wall or with a door, tempered glass for example, that separates the rooms, without creating two separate spaces. The shower tray is also removed in the same way, while in the case of the bathtub, in the last interventions we have made, we have placed it as the protagonist of the suite, in the center of the room or in a very visible. It is understood that the bathtub is a relaxing element rather than useful, so its location is more than justified.
However, in general terms, creating a suite has the great advantage of freestyle. Starting from the base of a few meters available you can create wonders in every way; comfort, design and functionality.
