You don’t know how many times I’ve happened to see people who decide by thread and by sign the furnishing elements to be inserted in their new bathroom, such as a washbasin cabinet or a shower box, and then realize that they will not enter the space in any way they have available.
The disappointment of not being able to use the elements they have chosen with so much effort (and expenditure of time) is always scorching. But fortunately the market allows you to take advantage of several alternatives, so you can always find the right furniture for your bathroom and that you really like.
The first suggestion for your bathroom is therefore this: in a correct planning process you do not have to start from the choice of sanitary ware and furnishings but from an in-depth knowledge of the space available .
In fact, the size and shape of the room can rarely be changed, so the first thing to do is arm yourself with pencil, paper and tape measure and make a precise relief. Only with the real measures in hand you can proceed to choose both the layout and the model of sanitary ware and furnishings.
From experience I can tell you that, once you have your relief in hand, finding the position to the sanitary workers is a bit like playing a tetris in which you have to be able to fit all the pieces taking into account the overall dimensions and room for maneuver.
Usually one of the sore points are the bathtubs: bulky and with a shape that is not easy to integrate. The market offers you all formats, they can be installed at any point, even in the middle of the room (never heard of freestanding bathtubs?). However, more than for all the other furnishing elements, in the case of bathtubs you need to know precisely the dimensions at your disposal: only as a result you will be able to understand what are the ideal sizes of a bathtub that can be installed in your new bathroom .
