Ensure your bathroom layout boasts the highest levels of practicality, originality, and design flair by using these quick and simple tips.

1. Maximize Access

The most important feature of bathroom design is high practicality, meaning how the features are spaced allow easy access. If your bathroom will be used by more than one person at the same time, you must take counter space into account.

2. Position the Bath

The bath is best positioned alongside a short wall. It will take up less space than if you run it along a long wall wall.

3. Toilet or Not?

As the bathroom is often among the smallest and busiest rooms in the house, a separate space for the toilet may be a good idea. It will open space for storage or extra counter space.

4. Adults Only?

If your bathroom will be exclusively for adults, use short towel rails and position them high up to create space. If children will be using the bathroom, consider a much taller towel rail to accommodate people of all sizes.
