One thing that should be noted in designing the space layout is the placement of the bathroom. The bathroom arrangement used to be easy because usually the bathroom and toilet are located separately from the main building. Now, along with the increasing price of land and buildings, the land for houses has begun to shrink and the location of the bathroom shifts into the main building.
Here are brief tips on choosing the position of the bathroom at home. The following includes:
1. The bathroom must not face the kitchen
The kitchen has an element of fire and symbolizes a person’s livelihood. Putting the bathroom, which has an element of water, in front of the kitchen is considered not good because the water element will turn off the fire. As a result, residents’ opinions will be disrupted. In addition, the fire mouth of the stove should not be in front of the sink.
2. Do not place the bathroom near the bed
As a room with negative elements, the bathroom should not be placed near the bed. Especially the head of the bed may not stick or adjacent to the bathroom wall. This is believed to interfere with the health of the occupants.
3. Avoid placing bathrooms near places of worship
Placing a bathroom next to a place of worship such as a prayer room or prayer altar is not recommended.
In addition, for adherents of Islam, it is not recommended to place the bathroom in the Qibla direction.
4. Things that must be considered for the placement of bathrooms upstairs
Multi-storey houses are one of the solutions to overcome land shortages in the present. But consequently, you must be very careful in designing the layout of the room. When looking for the right position for the bathroom, the thing to avoid is to place it above the bedroom, kitchen, or place of worship.
5. Pay attention to the direction of the bathroom
The bathroom is very related to the road. Do not place the closet back to the road. This means turning away from fortune. But do not also expose the closet to the road, because fortune will be wasted into the closet. However, one thing that must also be considered is not to place the closet in line and facing the bathroom door.
