Sufficiency of space is important in order to allow comfort inside the bathroom. It wouldn't be nice to enter a bathroom where you could hardly stand nor move. Allow space for sitting, standing, getting in and out of the bath tub or shower and enough traffic for moving around. You can use glass shelving for keeping your cosmetics and toiletries. A good color scheme will help you enhance a small bathroom. You can also use curves in a linear room for it adds interest. Use mirrors, windows and glass strategically for it creates a sense of openness allowing light to bounce throughout your entire bathroom.
Always plan according to the needs of the primary user. This is important so you will know what kind of materials and features you need. A bathroom for children and adult would have different needs and you would use different features, too. For a child's bathroom, use non-skid surfaces and rounded edge to avoid injury. You can also place anti-slip mats. You can have adaptations for disabled persons by having grab rails to walls and close to the toilet. Consider a wall-hung sink so that people who use wheelchairs can move closer to it with ease.
If you don't want to see clutter in your bathroom, have good storage spaces. You need to have storage areas for cleaning materials, medicines, children's toys for the bathroom, toiletries and others. Choose a good bathroom vanity cabinet that will not only keep your toiletries but will also make your bathroom look good. You can have a cabinet that can occupy from floor to ceiling for a wider space.
