When designing a functional kitchen, the rule of triangles should be kept in mind. That is, the sink, stove and refrigerator are arranged in a triangle. The L-shaped kitchen fits this triangle shape very well. The L-shaped layout is most suitable for small and medium-sized kitchens. The first-class kitchen is not only about the layout, but also about creating delicious food through the inspiration of the right layout.

As a manufacturer of sanitary products for more than 11 years, we have seen many customers whose bathrooms are really full of functions. Although it is small, the functions are still very diverse. Have to admire!
Modern decoration requires both practical functions and individual style, so the budget is often difficult to control. The bathroom space usage rate is high. If you can save it everywhere, rework and repair will occur, and the gains will outweigh the losses. At the same time, the cost of furniture and decoration can also be spent more or less. The following are some small details on the bathroom decoration, which can save costs time and time again!
1) Waterproofing is essential for walls.
Waterproofing in the bathroom is very important, not only to choose high-quality materials, but also to ensure professional painting. The wall waterproof in the wet area should be at least 180cm above the ground and 50cm for other places. The ground waterproofing generally needs to be brushed twice and a 24-hour closed water test should be carried out. Wall corners, water pipes, etc. should also be carefully done.
Ceramic tiles are the highlight of bathroom decoration. And the wall area is large. You can choose relatively economical tiles to ensure the waterproof performance. You can also directly paint with waterproof paint where it is not in the shower area. It will reduce cost.
Mosaics with rich patterns can enhance the visual aesthetics of the space. And to reduce material costs and manual laying costs, mosaics can be laid only on key positions. Tiles, waist line and top line can be selected according to your own needs to control the cost of decoration.
The original light-body wall is removed and replaced with a transparent glass wall, which expands the visual area of the space and also saves costs.
Mosaic paving requires a high labor cost, so you can find a large mosaic-like wall tile to pave the wall, which can save a lot of money. Since there are fewer gaps between large-size mosaic tiles, the amount of caulking agent is correspondingly reduced, which is often used for reference and selection in home decoration.
2) The floor area should be beautiful and non-slip.
Safety should be placed in the most important position, and slip resistance should be considered in the selection of floor tiles. At the same time, the human body will directly touch the ground, so the quality of materials should be paid attention to. Bright floor tiles are relatively slippery, so use them as little as possible in the bathroom, and use matte floor tiles or tiles with good anti-slip properties.
When paving the floor tiles, the slope must be appropriate, and the floor drain must be the lowest point so that the water can flow smoothly. The floor tiles should be made of whole tiles as much as possible, and the gap between the tiles should be controlled at about 2mm.
The area of decorative tiles on the ground is smaller than that of the wall. The use of interval paving can save the budget, and only use the same pattern of tiles to be separated by more than one tile.
If you want to create a low-cost bathroom with a natural texture, you can use wood-grain tiles instead of waterproof solid wood, which also has the characteristics of natural patterns, elegant colors, and easier matching with other sanitary wares.
Paving decal tiles in the bathroom can improve the monotonous bathroom style. In the actual construction process, the cost of laying decal tiles is much cheaper than mosaic.
When special-shaped handmade tiles are laid on the ground, they should be from the inside out, the gap between the tiles should be controlled within 8mm, and the height of the caulking agent should be level with the tiles. The paving of this kind of tiles should be carried out in sequence according to the serial number on the back to avoid waste caused by rework.
3) Cleverly arrange the exposed and concealed sanitary ware.
The bathroom is a place where multiple channels of water and electricity converge. In the early stage of renovation, it is necessary to choose quality water pipes, wires, etc. And the wiring must comply with the regulations to avoid water leakage due to design and material selection problems.
As the space expands and functions increase, there are more and more electrical appliances in the bathroom. If you want to install smart toilet lids, integral shower rooms, massage bathtubs, multi-functional bathroom cabinets, etc., you must first make the sockets during the decoration to avoid rewiring in the future and increase the trouble.
The plumbing renovation of the bathroom is most laborious. If you want to save this part of the cost, the pipeline must be open-lined, without slotting, and future maintenance can also save a lot of costs.
In addition, avoid excessive wiring when rebuilding waterways and circuits. Use multi-hole sockets as much as possible on the panel of the socket. Under the premise of the same number of wires, you can plug in more electrical appliances. The wiring of the space is reconstructed with open wires, and the wires are routed from the top. The outer wall of the pipe is painted with waterproof paint, which saves a lot of labor costs and is also convenient for maintenance.
The bathrooms are uniformly decorated in black and white tones, simple and generous. The upper and lower water pipes of the sanitary ware are made of metal material, which has a long service life and is not easy to be damaged.
The space matching has been cleverly designed. The cement wall is matched with solid wood floor tiles, which is elegant and warm, satisfying practical functions and beautiful.
4) Shower Area
The quality of the glass used in the shower room is closely related to the safety of the bathroom. Fine tempered glass is generally difficult to break, and it will not hurt people when broken. Therefore, when choosing, don't be greedy for temporary cheapness, and try to choose high-quality, well-reputed brands.
The frame of the shower room is usually made of aluminum alloy, and the surface is sprayed with plastic, so it is not corroded or rusty. The thickness of the main frame aluminum alloy is preferably 1.1mm or more, which is not easy to deform.
In addition to professional brand shower rooms, the shower area can also be separated from dry and wet areas with various partitions. Common glass partitions only need to be installed on one side when combined with the wall, which saves costs by using less materials.
At the same time, the installation of the shower room can be omitted. The base of the shower room mainly plays the role of heat preservation and drainage, and the material is mostly acrylic.
The shower area is separated by a glass wall, and the ground is transitioned by steps to create a semi-enclosed shower space. The glass partition is directly fixed with hardware without reaching the top, which gives the space better permeability.
A wall serves as a partition, separating the wash area from the shower area. The interior of the wash area is covered with ceramic tiles, the exterior is painted with waterproof paint, and the key parts are strengthened.
5) Wash Area
The floor drain is most commonly used for sink, and the wall mount type can be used for more advanced spaces. It is best to have all S-bends to prevent upward odor. Basins are divided into above-counter basins, under-counter basins and wall-mounted basins. Above counter basins for households are more suitable and easy to install. The under counter basin is suitable for a large area bathroom, and the installation is relatively complicated.
Small-space or low-budget families can abandon the overall bathroom cabinet, and use a transparent iron frame to save space and leave more space for the legs. Mirror cabinets and recessed cabinets are more suitable for small spaces and complete the storage function of the bathroom. To reduce the cost of decoration, you can choose a single color and simple style in the decoration, and match it with retro copper-colored, metal-colored faucets or mirror lights to create highlights.
Build the washstand with cement, and place storage baskets underneath. The wall-mounted faucet is highly decorative, but the size must be measured accurately in advance, otherwise it cannot be installed, which will affect the use.
There is no special furniture under the basin; only metal racks are used to save costs and place toiletries.

The home is inseparable from the support of basic hardware. Don't underestimate the basic hardware. Their technological content and technical barriers are higher than you can imagine.
Of course, the difference in quality and price is even more surprising.
Basic hardware generally includes: hinges, damper, sliding rails, etc. Put it simple, all the hardware components that enable the cabinet and the pull basket to achieve the functions of opening, sliding, and staying.
The most used is the hinge. It not only needs to connect the cabinet body and the door panel accurately, but also bear the weight of the door panel alone. And all doors must be kept neatly arranged. Otherwise, it may loosen and fall after a period of time.
In the design of the entire drawer, the most important accessory is the sliding rail. Due to the special environment of the kitchen, even if the low-quality sliding rail feels good in the short term, it will be difficult to push and pull after a longer time.
The damper is matched with the sliding rail and the hinge. The damper has two most important functions. One is to improve the precision of the hardware, and the other is shock absorption.
Flip up Door Support: First of all, it is sturdy and has no shaking, the surface is smooth and the workmanship is fine. And it is smooth and quiet in use.
In addition, damper and rebound depend on whether the force is uniform, and if there is no load, test whether it can be smooth and quiet under load, and whether there is obvious friction and jamming.
Considering the frequency of use, be sure to choose a big brand. The good ones can last for decades, and the poor ones will have quality problems in three to five years.
Now we will introduce the international brands of kitchen hardware products and their characteristics.
GRASS of Austria is one of the largest hardware vendors in the world, focusing on the development of furniture hardware, just like their slogan: Let the opening and closing of furniture become the most comfortable experience.
Their products are mainly comfortable to use. The best product is the sliding rail system. Others include hinges and upturn supports.
Salice of Italy is a veritable king of hinges, and the world's first modern furniture hinge was made by them.
In the European high-end furniture market, it is in a "monopoly" position. The top cabinets in Germany and Italy almost all use Salice's hinges.
Expensive and good.
No need OEM service from other factories. 100% of the spare parts are all from Europe. Surface treatment and rich colors are also a major feature.
Hettich in Germany is like a furniture hardware store, with a multi-faceted product line, which is still a little different from the two above.
Many people think of them as expensive, solid materials and excellent performance.
Then there is Blum in Austria, which is more like a cabinet hardware store. The main product is hinges, which is still far from Salice. Most professional cabinet brands use Blum's hinges. Blum is the most well-known hinge company in China.
Finally, let us talk about the German KESSEBOHMER, which is smaller than the above ones. It focuses on the cabinet hardware. The design and craftsmanship are excellent. The selection of materials is strict and the workmanship is fine.
And there also is Hafele. Hafele is almost like an international distribution center for hardware accessories. The product line is rich, covering construction, furniture, cabinets and other fields. Most products are from global procurement and OEM factory. Hafele can be called Carrefour in the hardware industry.
The ranking of domestic hardware brands has changed considerably. The more famous ones are DTC and HIGOLD.
DTC mainly has a large output. The domestic output in China is the first. It is also among the best in the world. The main products are connectors, hinges and slide rails.
HIGOLD, the latecomer, takes the lead. Focusing on functional hardware. Product advantages are function and design.
There have always been a lot of worries about the bathroom. Generally, the size of the bathroom in a residence is 5-10 square meters, or even smaller. But to be comprehensive, toilet area, wash area, shower area are indispensable. The bathroom layout, design, and storage are not completely puzzled. Today we will teach you how to lay out the bathroom. Let's take a look at how other people solve such troubles!
For different bathroom spaces, the layout methods are different. Rectangular bathrooms are the most common, because such bathrooms are more convenient to separate dry and wet areas. Generally from the outside to the inside are: wash basin, toilet, shower room. The shower room is generally partitioned by a glass sliding door, which is very convenient to use.
It is difficult to design a square bathroom. Generally, the space is increased by reducing the length of the shower room. In the small square bathroom, the shower room is basically arranged on the opposite corner of the door, and then the wash basin and toilet are arranged in the corners on both sides. If the space is too small, you can only consider removing floor cabinets, bidets, bathtubs, etc.
Plan irregular spaces according to the size.
For irregular shape bathroom, item layout size is the key. According to the slight difference of different corner sizes, different functional areas can be planned, so that all the spaces can be used rationally.
For example, by adjusting the shape of the washstand or shower room, more space can be obtained.
Layout according to dry and wet separation:
The difficulty in planning a small-sized bathroom is the separation of dry and wet. If the wet and dry separation is handled well, the bathroom grade is also improved a lot. The following dry and wet separation methods are more common and reliable. You might as well learn from it.
Shower curtain + bathtub + water retaining strip:
This is the most economical way to separate wet and dry area. Modeling and installation are very simple. But take care to keep it dry after use. Otherwise, it is easy to mold and breed bacteria.
Shower room / retractable shower room:
It has good lighting and flexibility. When it is fixed in a corner, the glass partition can be unfolded, and it can be put away when it is not used, which can save a lot of space.
Glass partition + water retaining strip:
The glass partition material can well maintain the lighting effect of the bathroom and relieve the depressed feeling of the entire space. Generally used with water retaining strips. The elongated bathroom is very suitable. Glass partitions can also be used with low walls to ensure the privacy of the space and bring more light.
Move the sink out:
Move the original washing area directly to the outside of the bathroom. An interior door easily realizes the separation of dry and wet. The shower area and toilet area are reserved inside. It is also very convenient to arrange.
The bathroom storage can be squeezed out.
The location of the bathroom is not large, but if you make clever use of every hidden space, you will be pleasantly surprised to find that the space has become much larger!
Storage behind the door. Install a few bars behind the door to put towels or clothing. A hard wooden board is fixed above the door to store some infrequently used items. Don't let the toilet cosmetics be placed randomly. You can find a tray to store them neatly. The picture on the right is the correct way.
The double-layer shelf can hold more cosmetics.
Fix a magnet bar next to the mirror. Now you can put small hairpins and cosmetic tin boxes there. Never worry about losing your hairpin every day.
All kinds of beautiful jars and glass bottles can show their usefulness. Put in some long cosmetics such as powder brush and mascara. New skill!
Use a clip to hang the toiletries in a position within reach, which is easy to access and use.
Create an open bathtub. Place the toiletries in the bathtub sides and close it when not in use. There is no clue at all.
Place a ladder shelf with storage basket next to the bathtub. All items such as clothes, towels, and washing utensils are collected.
Especially suitable for families with babies. From now on, the toys will not be scattered all over the place.
The bathroom is very important and part of our lives. Let us take it seriously. Love life, start with a perfect bathroom.
Pink is considered the exclusive color of girls, and many people can't resist its unique tenderness and romance.
Pink is soft and compatible. It is a very versatile color. When used properly, it can add a unique texture to the space. It now occupies a very special place in home design.
For the pink bathroom space, how can it be decorated to be unconventional?
Combine Pink and Tiles
Worried that too much pink will look tacky? Then add the tile. The large pink walls are matched with tiles of different textures to make the bathroom richer, playful and unique.
Choose bright chrome bathroom accessories in the space to completely blend into the pink space. Towel bar, towel ring, storage basket, soap dish... a full set of configuration. Make the bathroom tidy and clean.
Pink Matches with Other Colors.
Pink is a very tolerant color. Green, which seems difficult to match, is combined with pink. A warm and cold mixed hue makes the space more fresh without any uncomfortable impact.
The sweet pink is matched with the black metal bathroom accessories. The calm black effectively neutralizes the sweetness of the large pink.
The black bathroom accessories with a strong sense of line give the space a sense of high quality.
Embellish the bathroom with pink, soft and not monotonous, elegant and vigorous. Let the space bloom with a different kind of charm.

Ideal life starts here.
Home, as a refueling station for happiness, is not just a place to rest, but a pleasant space that carries our stories and emotions. So it must be comfortable enough to be lazily for a whole day; it must be sunny enough to bloom every day's good mood; it must be warm enough to speed up our pace of going home.
The ideal life can start from creating a comfortable bathroom. The comfort of the bathroom space is related to the quality of life and the pleasant mood of the day. If the decoration is not good, how to start a happy life?
The morning starts from washing in the bathroom, ushering in a good time of the day; the relaxing moment when you go home after a day of work, and the hearty bathing, will restore your vitality to yourself.
For decoration, it is not easy to choose a suitable washroom basin. There are a lot of basins that are just plain useless.
Should we choose an over-counter, under-counter, integrated or pedestal basin ?
Let's take a look at the advantages and disadvantages of these basins and see which features are what we want most.
The bathroom is sometimes a dirty space, which is not easy to clean and take care of. The dampness, dirt, and bacteria can easily breed. Well, there may be cockroaches and spiders...
To keep the bathroom clean and tidy, the two most important points are: easy to tidy up and keep it dry.
If you choose basins based on these two points, let's analyze them one by one.
Above Counter Basin (Always Beautiful)
I stayed in a hotel once. The bathroom design was very creative. There are two wash basins. One is a normal under-counter basin, and the other is an above-counter basin with excellent artistic sense.
I use the under-counter basin for washing, but I always glance at the above-counter basin like a work of art.
Almost all such beautiful above counter basins can become an installation art in the home. For those who are pursuing art decoration, you can consider buying an above counter basin.
Under Counter Basin (Practical)
The embedded under counter basin and the "invisible" shape make the wash area look more refined and simple. This is probably a basin that many families use more often.
The basin connected with the countertop (Easy to Install)
The countertop and the basin are integrally formed, which saves a lot of trouble for cleaning. Because it is a modular grouping mode, the installation has zero pressure.
Semi-hanging Basin (Saving Space)
A semi-hanging basin is suitable for some customers, if we want to leave a little more space.
Pedestal Basin (Long Legs)
Especially suitable for use in small spaces.
Cylindrical Basin (Artistic Sense)
The cylindrical basin can be disassembled. Because it is straight-through, it is not easy to block. The disadvantage is that there is no countertop for placing bathroom accessories.
The selection of the basin also needs to be decided according to the specific design plan, such as shape, color matching, size and so on.
Finally, in order to keep this space dry and clean, we need to use a dry towel to wipe off the water in time, ventilate as much time as possible every day, and so on. Although it may seem troublesome, once you develop a habit, it will naturally be a lot easier .
The bathroom is used for bathing, washing, dressing, and indoor toileting. It is a frequently used home space. But the bathroom space only accounts for a small part of the overall home space. In the limited area, bathroom storage becomes very important.
It doesn't matter if you didn't plan the storage space when you renovated the bathroom at the beginning. Recommend 5 bathroom storage products to make your bathroom space organized.
1. Multifunctional Shelf
Wash away all fatigue and awaken physical and mental energy. The small bathroom is actually our energy gas station. Every morning and evening, we will spend some time alone with "it". The bathroom is a very important space in the home. The area of this space is small, but there are a lot of items that need to be accommodated. Therefore, the storage in many people's homes has become a big problem.
The multifunctional shelf solves this problem for everyone. Placed in the bathroom to store up some odds and ends. It looks neat and beautiful. And the simple structure makes it easy to clean. Moisture-proof and ventilated, it is a good storage item. It is effectively matched with the bathroom space.
2. Triangle Shelf
Another essential piece of hardware in the shower area is the triangle shelf. You can usually put shampoo, shower gel, skin care products, razor, etc. The racks are distinguished according to the installation position. There are ordinary rectangular racks, which are installed on a wall. There is also a tripod, installed at the junction of two walls.
This shelf uses a triangular design, simple in shape, beautiful and high-end, very suitable for modern bathroom design. Exquisite corner design, effective use of space. The weight-bearing capacity is also top-notch, meeting the needs of life.
3. Towel Rack
The towel rack is a must-have item for the bathroom, which integrates practicability and aesthetics. Nowadays, there are generally products such as single rod, double rod, multi-rod on the market.
The towel rack has good moisture resistance, corrosion resistance, compression resistance and high temperature resistance. The design of split layer and widening of the bars are adopted to prevent the towels from sticking to each other. Can be very moisture-proof and easy to take. Large space capacity. The lower bar can be used to hang towels. The upper layer can be used to put clean bath towels or clean clothes.
4. Multifunctional Paper Tissue Holder
A good tissue holder can last for many years. It is not only a tissue holder, but also a shelf. The mobile phone can be placed to free your hands temporarily. You can also put some aromatherapy or green plants and other small objects on it. The multifunctional paper towel rack adopts an open design, so you can know the remaining amount of paper tissue at any time, and no longer have to worry about being trapped in the toilet because there is no paper.
Suspended design, hygienic and moisture-proof. The roll of paper keeps a certain distance from the wall. The paper towel does not come into close contact with the wall.
5. Toilet Brush Holder
It is not hygienic to put the toilet brush on the ground, so there is a toilet brush holder. It is clean and tidy, and beautiful. The toilet brush holder uses high-quality stainless steel to make the bracket, which is waterproof, wear-resistant and not easy to corrode, and is not affected by water vapor and damp walls in the bathroom space. Long-term use is more assured.
Upgraded one-piece casting base design, meticulous workmanship, practical and durable. The simple style is highly integrated with the bathroom environment and enhances the bathroom style.
It is "too difficult" to put bottles and cans in a small bathroom. Organize items in a planned way and add storage items reasonably to make the bathroom space more tidy. Let's expand the small space from now on, let's take action!
