When the so-called Khrushchev houses were built everywhere in the countries of the USSR, they firmly believed that this was only temporary housing for hard workers who were building a bright future for communism. But as a result, everyone lives in them to this day, for decades. Bathrooms in them are very small and it is sometimes so difficult to place plumbing fixtures of a shared bathroom, sink and washing machine that the washing machine can go to live in the kitchen or hallway. If this problem is burning for you, be sure to read this material.
1. Place the sink over the washing machine
As they say, all ingenious is simple. Invest in an investment such as demolishing the old sink along with its pipes and redeveloping the pipes for a new, thin sink bowl. Now it can be placed above the washing machine, and this will save 30 percent of the bathroom space in Khrushchev.
2. Scandinavian Eurovision
In European, especially in Scandinavian houses, you can often find very small bathrooms, in which the shower head is located almost above the toilet, and the drain is in the center of the room. This solution will significantly save space. And if a fully open bathroom seems uncomfortable to you, use a shower curtain.
3. Wall mounted toilet
The wall-mounted toilet significantly saves space due to wall mountings and the absence of a cistern, as a result of which it is located much closer to the wall. It also makes it much easier to keep your bathroom floor clean with this design.
4. Small sink with storage area underneath
Rectangular sinks with sharp corners look modern and stylish, but in the case of a small bathroom, it is better to opt for rounded shapes. Invest a little money in redistributing pipes, and the result is a powerful bonus: There are now multiple storage areas under the sink for laundry and cleaning and hygiene supplies.
5. Cornice for cosmetics
There are always a lot of cosmetics in the bathroom. The vast majority of them are available in tubes. Then why waste space for hanging shelves, if you can simply fasten the tubes with stationery clips on a cute cornice? And it is convenient for you, and surprise the guests.
