A flawless bathroom takes time and planning to be space efficient, perfectly styled and functioning well. We have put together four common errors that are made when designing a bathroom and how to avoid them. Take a look!
There is no such thing as too much storage. Not having storage in a bathroom is a big mistake. Drawers under the vanity, overhead shelving and hidden storage are practical and essential. Plenty of storage helps avoid clutter giving the illusion of space. Consider the following ideas when planning your storage.

So how do we avoid wasted space?

If you don’t have the space don’t try to squeeze it in. The result will be a crammed bathroom that is uncomfortable and inaccessible. Decide what your needs are. Do you need a bath? Do you want a double shower? Think about this and then consider how they fit or don’t fit into your bathroom design. You may need to compromise.
The following can make your bathroom look and feel bigger.

Function is often overlooked in favour of styling and design. However, it is something you need to think about when designing your bathroom. Once you move in, these small errors in design can become little annoyances that may have been avoided.
