Open Concept Bathrooms: What They Are and How to Achieve It

An open concept bathroom is not a new trend. In fact, this type of layout has been around for centuries, mostly used in high-end homes with large master bathrooms, luxury hotels, and health spas. Sometimes the term “open concept” is confused with opening the bathroom space to adjoining rooms, such as a bedroom. To clarify, we’re not referring to that type of open concept bathroom in this blog. The term “open concept bathroom” simply refers to a bathroom that doesn’t have any walls or partitions separating the different areas within the same room.

However, just because an open concept bathroom doesn’t have any walls doesn’t mean that it can’t be stylish – if anything, it “opens” up new design opportunities! In this blog, we’re going to discuss this spa-like bathroom design and how you can achieve it in your home.

Designing an Open Concept Bathroom

When it comes to an open concept bathroom design, there are two schools of thought: those who prefer privacy and those who enjoy their freedom. Depending on your personal privacy preference – and of those sharing the bathroom – more and more homeowners are choosing to design open concept bathrooms.

Here’s a look at some of the benefits of this type of design:

Increased Natural Light

One of the biggest benefits of an open concept bathroom is the increased natural light. Without walls and doors blocking the way, sunlight can easily flow into the space, making it feel brighter and more welcoming with a large window.

Better Ventilation

Another advantage of an open concept bathroom is improved ventilation. This is especially important in small bathrooms where poor ventilation can lead to mold and mildew growth. With an open design, there’s nowhere for moisture to hide, so it can quickly escape through the windows or vents.

Enhanced Visual Appeal 

To some, a traditional bathroom can be a bit boring. By opening the space, you can create a bathroom that’s both stylish and functional. Whether you opt for a sleek and modern aesthetic or a more rustic and cozier look, an open concept bathroom can be tailored to your specific taste.

Easier to Clean

Let’s face it, cleaning a bathroom is not something many people look forward – but it should be done regularly! An open concept bathroom is one of the best design choices for ease of cleaning since there are less nooks and crannies for dirt, mold, or mildew to grow.

Improved Resale Value

If you’re thinking about selling your home in the future, an open concept bathroom can be a major selling point. Homebuyers are often looking for homes with modern features, and an open concept bathroom is the perfect way to show that your home is up to date.

Wet Room Open Concept Bathroom Trend

A wet room is a type of open concept bathroom where the entire space is waterproofed. This type of layout is perfect for small bathrooms because it makes the space feel larger and more open. Wet rooms are becoming an increasingly popular bathroom renovation in Europe, and they’re starting to gain popularity in North America as well.

If you’re interested in designing a wet room, there are a few things you’ll need to take into consideration:

  1. You’ll need to waterproof the entire space from the floor to the ceiling. Choosing non-slip flooring is a must to prevent accidents!
  2. Next, you’ll need to make sure that the space has properly located drainage in the floor.
  3. Along with proper drainage, you’ll want to make sure the room is properly ventilated to prevent mold and mildew growth.
  4. Finally, choose fixtures and finishes that can withstand moisture.

There are plenty of ways to make this type of layout look chic and modern. Use different materials and textures in each area to create a more interesting design – the design possibilities are endless when you work with Choice Home Remodeling!

We absolutely love the new door we just had installed from Choice! We had such a great experience with Choice from start to finish. Tim was great and helped us pick out the perfect door for our home and didn't try to sell us the most expensive model and was honest, not pushy. Everyone we came in contact with was friendly and professional and the work was top notch.
I bought my windows from them. Everyone one was so nice and professional. Christie was very helpful. Thank you, will use again for other projects
So pleased with our bathroom renovation by Choice Home Remodeling! Alyssa Hayes did an excellent job in designing a functional and attractive way to best utilize our small space. Our kids are thrilled to have their own sinks! Alyssa patiently guided us through the design choices, made recommendations and outlined the construction process. The construction phrase was very timely, and Ken Brown was available for any questions and kept us informed of the schedule and what part of the project was happening when. I was very impressed that the job was finished very close to the scheduled completion date. The Choice staff and subcontractors were all respectful of our space and did a thorough job.
Very nice showroom and great staff. Doors, windows, roofing, gutters, railings, kitchen and remodeling. Pretty much a one stop shop.
