Maximum usability with the minimum area of a combined bathroom. 3-4m,Two reserved in a small apartment to solve small and big problems, don’t leave room for the imagination. I want to so important for daily life, the territory didn’t look like an Elevator. If we are not talking about redecorating bathrooms, and is primarily about a major redevelopment and transformation into a convenient Cabinet for your personal needs, you should seriously work with photo full bathrooms after a real repair.
No matter how beautiful was not design solutions in advertising, offering repair bathrooms turnkey, real-world solutions in practice are very different from the coffee searchlights.
Among the diversity of solutions for wall design and ceiling the most practical options are:
- The use of tiles;
- The use of PVC panels
- Use water-resistant drywall;
- The use of decorative panels of modified wood.
But not always use when repairing combined bathroom modern high-quality materials saves from disastrous decisions.
Small room bathrooms 3 sq m 4 sq m, designed with quality dark tiles, makes the atmosphere heavy. Truly, you can evaluate the result of repair and magnificence finishes only in the presence of large Windows and sunlight, which in small apartments never happened. Replace the sunlight simulation lamps will not work. In addition, the dark surface decoration exhibits stronger light soiling and traces of moisture dried up.
Before beginning the repair is to appreciate the possibilities and to choose, from which you can opt for increase the free space in the room and a combined bathroom. Please note on the classical solution of the problem in the photo. Thanks to replacing the tub shower in the center of the combined bathroom is quite big free space.
Successful solutions in the repair bathrooms include:
- Quality performance floor, well matched in color, no closed niches and blocks;
- Hanging options for plumbing add space under the feet;
- The location of the washing machine in the bathroom – often just for this carry out repairs and alterations to bath-toilet in a small apartment.
The first version of the redevelopment due to the large amount of work to change the sewer and water communications in the combined Cabinet small apartment. Exploding on the opposite wall of the shower cabin and toilet on one side and a washbasin with «washing» the other requires labor-intensive laying of drain pipes in the niches of walls, subject to the restrictions on their length, which is not always attainable to small areas.
Quality ceramic tiles have always been the most commonly used material for decoration and renovation of bathrooms. The use of tiles is costly, sometimes leads to reduce internal volume combined bathroom, especially if the wall curves, requires the alignment of the framework with drywall or plaster carrier.
Alternatively, perhaps a combined solution is a combination of tile and walls decorated with water-resistant drywall with the subsequent coating, simulating a rough plaster. Important effect – lower cost and excellent combination of different techniques, which is fine for a small apartment.
Virtually no alternative is the option of laying tiles on the floor. Bathroom with washing machine and bathroom in small apartment has always been and remains a source of potential accidents associated with the Strait on the floor of large amounts of water.
To reduce the adverse consequences before laying the tile it is advisable to perform screed with waterproofing and raised 3-4cm threshold of the front door. In this case, twenty liters of water resulting from the washing machine, will not work outside the bathrooms and are not the cause of the scandal with the neighbors on the floor below.
Special grooved cover firmly hold the tile on the basis of not less than 10 years. Advantages of ceramic tiles:
- Easy to clean any cleaning agents;
- High resistance to abrasion and impact of adverse microflora.
- Under the influence of moisture, heat and light does not fade and does not emit harmful substances.
The disadvantages include the high cost of material and professional work on her styling. Laying or bonding of ceramic tiles is estimated at about half the price of the material.
Although it is difficult to imagine that the owner of a small apartment for the repair of full bathrooms used expensive Spanish or Italian ceramics of a copyrighted work, laying tile, even in a small space 2х2м will cost most of the budget repair.
So often for lower prices without loss of quality using panels of spectacular tile sets in the background of more cheap monochrome pattern. In some cases the tiles are placed only in areas of heavy exudation of condensation or direct contact with water, replacing the rest of the walls are painted in the same tone water-resistant drywall.
The most affordable and accessible option to repair combined bathroom will be the use of tiles or panels made of PVC and is water-resistant drywall.
Both materials are successfully used for technical purposes – primarily in order to hide communication and pipelines, isolation valves, faucets and counters.
Plates can be placed on prepared and processed by the adhesive surface. This approach practically does not reduce the internal volume of the bathroom. In case of making decorative boxes used construction frame profile. Then pasted plates or panels made of PVC, completely imitate the expensive varieties of ceramic or marble tiles. For bathrooms this is the most affordable option.
The most problematic place in the bathroom of a small apartment has always been the ceiling. Always repair uneven surfaces of the ceiling demanded exceptional remedies. The perfect solution to the ceiling problem was a set of PVC panels, mounted on metal frame.
This option has several advantages in the repair of full bathrooms:
- Easily breathable and holds water vapor;
- Easy design is quite firmly held by the metal frame;
- Ceiling space used for laying extra wiring and pipes.
- Easy to clean, does not rot, rust, warping or sagging.
Panels made of polyvinyl chloride can be called a universal material which can adjust the appearance of the walls or even the layout of the bathroom. It is made from hidden niches for storage of chemicals and personal care products, screens covering the space under the bath, the ducts that help to efficiently ventilate the room combined bathroom.
High humidity from a large amount of water in the bathroom requires not just ventilation, and creating a ventilation system with hidden air ducts and blower motor. Without ventilation the odors and moisture will be trapped under the wall.
Well-established system of local exhaust that provides 3-4 times the air in the toilet area and shower. During the repair of a flat duct with wiring mounted on the ceiling of the bathroom, closed the ceiling panels of MDF or drywall. A more serious modification can provide sustainable ventilation all over small apartment, and not only combined bathroom.
More expensive option of decoration for the ceiling of the bathroom are the ceilings, giving a beautiful appearance, but the cost of installation, even for the space of size 3Q.m, it turns out unreasonably high, given the status of housing small apartment.
To all the positive moments it is necessary to add a negative. The device of ventilation in the bathroom is such that in the event of a fire, for example, from shutting wiring or for other reasons, in the bathroom, as in the stove, will instantly ignite the fire. Therefore, wiring in the bathroom must be placed in a special mounting metal hoses-hoses. Do not skimp when repairing security.
Repair the walls and furniture, combined bathroom may seem archaic, but the skills skillful treatment of wood and lacquer can create a very cozy and practical options.
If you make repairs in the bathroom with his own hands, the cost of acquisition of the material will be quite low, will cost very expensive handmade and the wood finish floor. If you use ready-made solutions panels of modified wood, which is unlikely to repair a small apartment, the cost can exceed the estimate of laying quality tiles.
Wood, even under a layer of varnish, is very badly perceived in constant contact with water, this leads to loss of color, development of mold and warping of the structure. Therefore, in the repair of full bathrooms used by such species as larch, oak, pine. It is not recommended to use birch or beech. You can make yourself an analogue of the impregnated wood, coating the cut for repair of the workpiece 5-6 coats of oil varnish with thorough drying of each layer for 2-3 days.
