The bathroom I talk about in this post is the bathroom of Paul’s project. Project you can also see in the dedicated Portfolio section.
The bathroom in question is the main bathroom of the house and only in this bathroom the washing machine drains were created.
Initial requests for this bath were:
- insert a free-standing bathtub: Paul had in mind the very beautiful design tanks and how to give it wrong! The shower would be placed in its second bathroom in the room
- Insert the washing machine
Being the main bathroom, I immediately thought of creating a bathroom with a washing column.
Drawing and cladding
The washing machine column is indicated in these cases because it hides the washing machine, which would otherwise be seen in an environment that will surely be seen by the guests.
There was no space to create extravagant solutions. I opted for the insertion of the washing column immediately to the left of the entrance door and then proceed with a cabinet with 4 drawers and wash basin in support.
It was necessary to arrange the movement of the drains by a few centimeters.
For bathroom furniture, the composition was created with the Atlantic Series modules available on Diotti.com.
The composition will be completely in matt lacquered Gray Manhattan finish, with drawers. Only a wall hanger will be of Ottoman blue, always opaque lacquered, to resume the washable enamel wall behind the sanitary ware.
For floor and wall coverings it has been chosen for:
- floor-effect wood stoneware: a stoneware with a very material effect, replicating the veins and knots of the wood
- full height mosaic for the wall behind the washbasin
The trademarks taken into account for the mosaic were Marazzi and Mutina.
On the aesthetic level, the washing column integrates very well into the bathroom and it is not too heavy!
In these situations where the bathroom is not great but there is a need to place laundry columns, it is best to use light colors for furniture. Light colors are less intrusive!
The choice of the tub and the lights
The measurements of the tub to choose are fundamental!
The insertion of the laundry column certainly takes some space, which is well calculated to leave a good space for the free-standing tub. The main constraint is the width of the bathroom, 168cm! You will definitely lose some other cm for laying the mosaic, while in the sanitary side the washable enamel allows you to not further reduce the width.
We can not exceed 150cm in width with the free-standing bathtub, considering that it may be slightly oblique to gain a few cm.
However, there are tanks with these widths, here are some proposals:
- Victoria + Albert Ios tub
- Morphing bath of Kos
- Agape Design Ottocento Small Bathtub
For the lights it has been chosen to create a plasterboard with spotlight line.
Particularity is the insertion of the Flos S1 IC Light next to the bathtub, with a diameter of 20cm.
Here you find the final project render!
