To minimize space, you can use corner sinks, corner showers or corner baths. Choose the right size and style of sink. You may opt for a vanity unit, a pedestal a wall hung or an en-suite. Some bathrooms have a couch inside. You can actually use your creativity and choose the furniture to use that would suit your style. You can even use an antique dresser as your bathroom vanity. Choose the right size and shape for your bath tub and showers. Some even have saunas, whirlpool baths and spas. Make a unique look by customizing your bathroom. Also, consider concrete or limestone as surfacing material for a cool and clean look.
A home would not be a home without a bathroom. The bathroom is a private area for sanitation and comfort. It is a place where one has a private time in taking care of their personal hygiene by taking showers and others. One would always want to feel refreshed and relaxed by the time they leave the area. But of course, a good bathroom that is clean and well-designed would be a better place to clean-up.
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.
