It’s an issue of space
In modern bathrooms around the country, the challenge of space has become a prominent issue. The problem is that modern apartments tend to have shrunk in size. As a result, more units are made available in the same building for larger profit. To do that, investors and architects reduce the available space in apartments with bathroom size shrinking as well. What new homeowners are left with is the hardships of navigating the delicate balance between functionality and aesthetics of small spaces. Compact living quarters call for innovative solutions, prompting a surge in the popularity of space-saving bathroom fixtures. Examples of these include corner sinks, wall-mounted storage, and slim-profiled vanities. As the need for multi-functional spaces intensifies, designers and homeowners alike are embracing clever strategies to maximize every centimeter. That way designers ensure that bathrooms not only meet practical needs but also exude a sense of sophistication within confined dimensions. And as you can imagine, bathroom doors are an important part of the conversation.
Traditional bathroom doors
Traditional bathroom interior doors exude timeless charm, embodying a classic aesthetic that resonates with enduring elegance. Crafted from different materials like MDF or aluminum (or a combination of both), bathroom doors might feature milling or glazing. Traditional doors, whether boasting raised panels or glass insets, strike a perfect balance between privacy and openness. And if you have enough space, a traditional interior bathroom door might be just what you need. What you need is only consider a few key points when picking the bathroom door design for you.
The space-saving alternatives
Depending on the level of privacy you would need, the alternatives to the traditional bathroom doors would vary. So for instance if your small bathroom is attached to your bedroom, then a sliding barn door would do. Barn doors are increasingly popular these days and it just stands out. Of course, there’s always the option of a folding barn door, which would again give you a variety of design options. Pretty similar to your regular interior bathroom door.
Overall, the pros of the barn doors, besides the obvious space-saving feature, are many. For one, installation is not difficult, especially if you have the right door manufacturing company. Then, despite becoming more prominent, such a door would still look different from what people are used to seeing, so there’s definitely that “wow” factor at play. As we mentioned, both sliding and folding bathroom doors offer as much design options as your regular interior bathroom door. The only con to taking into account is privacy.
Pocket doors solve that privacy issue. These have also been proven as a great alternative to traditional bathroom doors. The installation process of a pocket door is a bit more intricate and might require some additional plastering. Nevertheless, the results are amazing and you still save quite a lot of space in your bathroom.
Double doors are also a good way to maximize the available space in your bathroom. Instead of a single wing, you get 2 wings, which cut the space you would need to open the door in half. Design options are again varied so finding the right design will not be an issue.
