"Shabby chic" a relatively new phrase used to describe room designs is an obscure blend of neglect and style. It is one of the most difficult bathroom designs to create and it takes a bold decision to go for this bathroom style. It almost certainly achieves its full potential in a continental house either a French chateau or old Spanish villa.
Toilets with high level cisterns and pull chains are very rare these days but a must have for the country bathroom as are traditional taps for the bath and basin. Just about any kind of free-standing bath will suit the country bathroom. If wishing to have a shower a tiled walk-in shower is the advisable option with a curtain to conceal the area. For the final touch add wicker baskets filled with pot pouri wire basket shelves and stylish wall lamps.
A full sized standard tub or combination shower and tub measures 32 inches by 60 inches. A standard toilet is 20 inches by 25 inches and the vanity is usually 19 inches deep and space will determine the width of the sink vanity. There are many small bathroom floor plans that easily incorporate these fixtures in a bathroom as small as 5 feet by 8 feet. Of course a larger area naturally provides more options. An additional 2 feet of space will allow for a very useful linen closet perhaps placed at the end of the tub. However storage can be taken into account to include spacious medicine cabinets and narrow depth cabinets for the wall above the toilet. Lighting and ventilation must also be looked at ahead and if a window does not already exist fluorescent lighting is available in abundant styles some with ventilation fans incorporated into the design.
