3 by 6 bathhouse: design ideas
Many owners of private households and dacha plots opt for the construction of a bath with 3 meter by 6 m. As a rule, this is due to the saving of space in a small area.
But even such, it would seem, a very small bathhouse with proper planning and proper organization of the internal space can provide a person with everything necessary for carrying out hygienic procedures, getting physical relief and complete relaxation.
Advantages and disadvantages
The 6x3 m bath layout has a number of features that everyone who decides to get a compact bath on their territory will have to reckon with.
The main advantages of this building include the following points:
- such a building does not take up much space - it can easily be placed even on a small area;
- small neat buildings are much easier to fit into the overall atmosphere of the garden plots, without obscuring their appearance with a beautiful landscape;
- small bath houses are several times cheaper (such budget savings in the construction industry in our difficult times are one of the most important parameters), and the savings can always be used to improve the quality and internal design of the object;
- the size of 3x6 m is optimal for the simplicity of maintenance and maintenance of the bath; a minimum amount of fuel is required to heat such a small area.
The only minus of the bath with a meter size of 6 to 3 meters is the small size of the steam room, which will cause significant inconvenience for lovers of a big and noisy company. But for people who value peace and solitude, this disadvantage turns into a big plus.
By the way insufficient space can be compensated by building a small bath in two floorsBy placing guestrooms on the second level, which may unexpectedly descend on your visit at the height of the summer season.
Proper placement of the bath on the site is one of the most important points in the issue of the overall layout of the object.
It should be remembered that attaching a bath to a residential house is strictly prohibited, despite the fact that for many it seems very convenient. Such a strict limitation is due to fire safety considerations of the main dwelling.
According to the rules of construction, the bath should be located at least ten meters from the apartment building and five meters from all other structures on the site, including fences at the border of the territory.
So, the total bath area of 3x6 meters inside is approximately 22 m², where the useful area will be about 17 m². In such a bath no more than four people will be able to stay at the same time. One of the most convenient layouts can be this option.
Considering the presented plan, we see that the premises are divided into such zones as:
- steam room;
- utility room.
Utility room under the same roof with a bath will save you from having to build an additional fuel storage facility on your site, and, among other things, the firewood with this storage method will always remain dry, regardless of weather conditions. With this layout, in a rest room with an area of just over 5 m², you can easily put a sofa or lounge chairs, a table, all kinds of bath accessories and accessories.
In addition, in the rest room you can make an additional partition or a screen for the locker room. In the steam room, you can install one or more benches, depending on how many people will visit the bath at the same time.
At will outside it will be possible to attach a small summer verandah or a canopy. Such a terrace will be able to further protect the main building from the ingress of excessive snow in winter, and on hot summer evenings it will be a great place to relax for the whole family.
Despite the many areas in the design of modern baths, the most popular is still the traditional Russian-style decoration with the usual benches in the steam room and traditional items of bath utensils.
In the classic version, the Russian bath has three main zones:
- dressing room or dressing room;
- washing compartment;
- steam room.
At the same time washing and steam room can be combined, and the waiting room is divided into a rest room and a separate dressing room.
Choosing an antique design for decoration, you can add wooden utensils (ladles, tubs, tubs) to the interior of your bath, purchase bath furniture with carvings or forging elements, decorate walls and ceiling with bundles of brooms and aromatic herbs. Weaving and embroidery can serve as textile accessories.
For those who want to use in the design of the Russian bath modern finishing materials, such as ceramic tile or chrome faucets, remember that all elements must be in harmony with the overall design line. remember, that It is extremely important to choose the best combination of simplicity and modern design elements in order to add to the interior a casual touch of bad taste.
Equally important is the lighting: it must be warm and muffled, emphasizing the intimacy and tranquility of the atmosphere - first of all, this rule applies to lighting in the steam room. To scatter the bright light, you can use special filters.
Remember that all elements of power supply, including wiring and switches, should be as much as possible protected from moisture.
The materials with which the interior decoration will be carried out must meet certain requirements:
- be durable and have a long service life;
- have good resistance to temperature and humidity;
- be environmentally friendly, namely, do not contain toxic substances that can be released when heated;
- be hypoallergenic and safe, unable to burn or injure people;
- easy to process with detergents;
- have an aesthetic and pleasant appearance.
For all these parameters, natural wood is ideal for interior decoration of the bath - it remains to choose a specific type of wood for each individual zone.
So, for the design of the walls in the steam room, as well as for the manufacture of shops, stove benches and associated bath utensils it is best to choose deciduous trees. Such wood does not heat up to high temperatures, there are no resins in it, it dries quickly, which prevents the formation of fungus and rot. Linden, alder or aspen are perfect for this purpose.
The linden has a light, delicate texture, pleasant to the touch, it does not darken from time to time, and when heated, it spreads around itself a very delicate aroma. Aspen has a special strength: it is least susceptible to scattering and deformation. Alder has excellent bactericidal properties, it is also pleasant to the touch, resistant to temperature extremes and condensation.
For lining on the floor in the steam room is ideal larch. Remember that all pieces of furniture and utensils that are supposed to be used in the steam room should not have sharp and protruding corners - it is better if they have rounded and smooth shapes.
For finishing a waiting room, on the contrary, it is better to use softwood, such as spruce or pine. Since this room is usually not very hot, the smell of pine needles, released under the influence of moderate heat, will fill the room with a pleasant aroma, which, among other things, has bactericidal properties and the ability to enhance human immunity. This property contributes to the resistance of the human body to infectious diseases.
Pine is quite durable and has a beautiful structure. In addition, the relatively low cost of finishing materials made of pine makes them the most popular for facing dressing rooms and rest rooms in modern baths. Spruce or fir trim will have a lighter shade and a stronger structure that does not crack after full drying and shrinkage of the structure. Wherein Fir board, unlike spruce and pine, practically does not emit resin. For those who do not like coniferous smell, you can advise birch for decoration.
For finishing washing the use of tile will be the best option., because it is better than wood transfers unlimited contact with water. In addition, he is completely not subject to rotting, it is much easier to take care of him. In order not to disturb the harmony in the design, you can choose a tile with a pattern imitating wood.
The main rule, which should be strictly remembered when designing a bath, is that the bath is a place for relaxation and complete relaxation of the body, so the design should not contain any annoying accessories and dynamic forms in the furniture.
