A bathhouse - in the country or in a private house - is the pride of any owner. This is a great opportunity not only to put your body in order and improve your health, but also to have a good rest after a working day, recharge your batteries before new working days.
Many people prefer to engage in construction, selection of materials, interior design, work out a scheme - where what will be located. If the space allotted for the bath is not too large in area, you can consider options for projects of a bath with a size of 6 by 3 m.
Preparation for construction
Before starting the purchase of materials and the construction of the foundation, you need to think over the project of a bath with a size of 3x6 m, prepare a drawing. It is not difficult to schematically depict the premises that will be located in a space of 6 by 3 meters.
The main thing is to decide which is preferable, and which room to give more space, and which less. One needs a spacious steam room and does not need a rest room at all, the other, on the contrary, needs a place where guests can gather for tea, and a compact steam room will be enough. And he decides to replace the third rest room with a veranda.
When the project is defined, you need to think about the finishing materials - inside and out. The best option is to build a wooden bathhouse. If the building will be erected from concrete blocks or bricks, sheathing is required… Whether it will be made of natural materials or imitating natural materials depends on the funds that are planned to be spent on the arrangement of the bath.
The main thing is that everything is done efficiently, in compliance with technologies and safety rules.
The obligatory premises, be it a small or large bath, are the steam room and the dressing room. The main thing is to equip the space in the steam room so that there is a sufficient number of shelves. In a small room, they need to be placed in the form of a staircase.… The room should be finished with wood. The stove is placed in a corner so that you can move freely, but at the same time, easy access to the stove must be provided. If it is located too close to a wooden wall, a protective screen or brickwork should be installed in that place.
Lighting must be thought out so that it is comfortable and safe, lamps must be made of fireproof glass or protected by additional structures. Filling an already small space with additional items is not worth it.
The washroom can be made small. The main thing is that there is a place for a container with water and free movement in space for at least two people. To save square meters, you can connect a washing room with a steam room, although experts who know a lot about bathing do not recommend doing this..
For storage of the necessary things, firewood, coal, bath accessories, a change house will serve. Firewood can be kept in a special box. In some cases, firewood or coal is fed into the stove directly from the shutter located in the household room.
There is a dressing room in any bathhouse. And in a compact room, it can serve as both a dressing room and a recreation room at the same time. It should contain a wardrobe or comfortable hangers. Here you can also place a small table with stools, where it is pleasant to sit after a bath and drink aromatic tea with fragrant herbs.
To save space, you can provide cabinets or shelves for towels, gels, shampoos, oils.Here, on a separate shelf or in a bedside table, you can place tea leaves, herbs, dishes, and a kettle.
Premises that you can find a place for, but you can do without them - a recreation room or a small veranda replacing it. Separate spaces for these purposes are convenient, since there you can get together with a small family circle or with guests after bath procedures and have a chat over a cup of tea.
Project options with a total area of 6x3 m are few. Moreover, this requires more careful thought.
This room is designed for four people. This area is enough to accommodate comfortably and not interfere with each other. But this is ideal. If necessary, the company can be larger.
Project 1… In a small dressing room on the left side there is a door from which you can get to the rest room. And already from the rest room you can go to the washing room, and then to the steam room. The relaxation room and the steam room are the same size. The premises allow you to place everything you need. There is enough space for the sink. The dressing room is also well located
The main thing is that all the heat remains in the bath, and does not evaporate into the street. This option just allows you to do this.
Project 2… In this case, the locker room is allocated more meters, taking into account the fact that furniture for tea drinking will be located here. From the changing room you can get to the sink, and from it to the steam room. The latter takes up more space
In the future, if you wish, you can attach a terrace where you can have a wonderful time in summer, and if it is glazed and well insulated, then in winter as well.
Project 3… An option in which all rooms are given the same area. And they are located like this: a changing room, a washing room, a steam room. The dressing room has enough space to relax and change
With a small room, fantasy is not too much to roam, but it is quite possible to create a comfortable, cozy and pretty bathhouse outside and inside. You just need to determine for yourself - which rooms should be larger or smaller in size, and which you can do without.
An option that allows you to increase the space of the bath, but at the same time remain on the same piece of land - to complete the attic floor. It will give additional opportunities, and its construction will not become so troublesome.
But more space appears on the ground floor. You can make a more spacious steam room, find a place for a utility room, and install a shower cabin in the washing room. Then the room under the roof will be completely dedicated to relaxation. You can place a table for tea drinking in it, a cozy sofa, and even equip a corner for cooking.
A good addition that will make your stay even more comfortable can be a TV, a stereo system, a karaoke system. If necessary, the second floor can become a guest roomwho decided to stay for a few days. If you distribute the space wisely, then there will be a place for a cozy sofa or a folding sofa, which can be fenced off with a screen from the tea drinking area.
A design is possible when in the intended space there is both a room under the roof and a veranda. The scheme of such a design will be easy to think over. One of the three projects is taken as a basis, the second floor implies a free layout.
In any bathhouse - small or large - the main attribute is the stove. It can be wood-burning, electric, gas, as it is convenient for anyone. But a wood-burning stove is, of course, considered ideal for a bath… Especially if there is a goal - to adhere to the Russian or rustic style.
When the project is selected, construction and finishing have come to an end, it's time to take care of the interior. Everything will depend on the chosen style. In addition to Russian and rustic, Provence and chalets are suitable… Modern style is also appropriate, but using only the necessary elements.
Since the bathhouse is a place where unnecessary things are useless, you need to choose a style that does not involve a large number of items, only everything you need. Then the room will look stylish and attractive, and most importantly, it will be comfortable for everyone - owners and guests.
