Open style rooms have been a staple in the fashion industry for some time now. We’ve seen designers use the open style in kitchen and living room spaces throughout many beautiful homes. Recently, the open style bathroom has burst onto the interior design scene. So why is the open-style bathroom so popular?
Why the Open-Style is Hot Right Now
Probably the most significant benefit of the open-style bathroom is the fact that it allows more light into the room. It gives it an accessible feel to it and helps keep the owner feeling positive. The open-style allows for more depth perception. Therefore it feels more appealing to us as humans. The open-style is modern and contemporary with a relaxing feel to it, which leads into the next positive.
One of the main goals when creating and designing a beautiful, functional bathroom space is to create a relaxing almost spa-like feel. This idea is important. Not only do we want the bathroom to be a functional space, but also a relaxing area. In today’s world, everyone is busy, busy, busy. An open bathroom concept can help the owner to relax and unwind after a long stressful day.
This design is quite popular among dining rooms and kitchens and for these reasons has succeeded in many bathroom displays as well.
Dangers of the Open-Design
The open-style space is naturally less private. Just by definition, you are cutting out walls and combining rooms and zones. In a bathroom, often you will find a sink, shower, and vanity space in their special zones. But the open style combines those zones and removes the boundaries that come in-between them.
The bathroom might not be a space you want open, and if you are sharing it with someone else, it could be best to prioritize privacy for both parties.
It all depends on what you are looking for in your bathroom. If you want a private, functional space, open-style isn’t for you.
If you want to enjoy the latest and greatest styles by interior designers? The open concept could be just what you are looking for.
So the question remains, are you “open” to try it out?
