What do you see in the image above?

  • Small room: If you have a small room area either in the basement, upstairs or attic, you may not have enough room for a full bathroom. A full bathroom would house a bathtub, toilet and sink basin – not to mention bath racks and cabinets – that is a lot of bath appliances that you will need to squeeze into a tight space.
  • That is why we often refer to these small bath spaces as powder rooms or water closets – a room with just a toilet and sink. Very common is many homes for a down bathroom:
    INFO: what is a water closet? bathroom with privacy galore
  • But for these other tight places, how about converting it into bath soaking room? Your place to getaway and to relax.
  • Let’s start with the perfect tub: you need a tub to get the relaxation you dream of. And why not make that nice looking tub – such as this freestanding tub in this image above. It is nicely shaped and deep to give you a relaxing soak. It fits nicely in the middle of the room with a slight 45-degree angle to give that special look.
  • You can find many different styles of freestanding tubs that fit your room decor theme:

  • Floor faucet: thought the image doesn’t give you a full appreciation of the bath faucet, you will note that there is a floor faucet that extends up to the height of the tub. These type faucets are very decorative and add to the decor theme of the room.
  • Is it tuscan or adobe style: perhaps some of both. But mostly the southwestern style by the color and style of the wall. The style gives a bright, open air feeling that takes on the adobe look:

  • This room appears to be in the attic area with the skylights above – allows natural sunshine into the room during the day; and then at night, gives you a night-sky view as soak and relax in your tub.
  • What else do you see:
    • —   note the curved wall art; it compliments the shape of the standing bathtub. It also gives the room more depth.
    • —   adding to the southwestern look, you have varying house plants throughout the room. A house tree for added height, potted flowering plants in the back corner and on the front table, and hanging ivy along the ceiling shelf. The skylights provide the need sun; the moisture from tub use the needed water. Perfect addition to any southwestern style.
    • —   don’t like the ideas of being closed in? How about a fake window with window scenes from the outdoors.
    • —   marble tiled floor can be cold to the feet especially in the winter. But if you install underfloor heating, its the perfect flooring for bathroom use.
    • —   small wood furniture pieced that resemble a spa – just what you need for the perfect bath hideaway.
Final Observation:

so if you have a small space – in the attic for example – that can be easily connected to plumbing sources – perhaps a hideaway bath area can work for you. This bath scene could also the the design option for a space area that is L-shapes. One side of the room area would house the toilet and basin, the other the bath area. Either way, the goal is to create a hideaway that gives you the privacy and space to relax your troubles away.
