Your bathroom should be a comfortable space that is also functional and easy to use. Designing a bathroom to suit your needs requires an attention to detail and a practical approach to the space. Start by determining the layout of the bathroom. Choose the bathroom fixtures, like the toilet, the sink, and the shower or tub, as well as accessories like storage baskets, shelving, and a mirror. Then, create a design plan for the bathroom so you can build it to suit your needs.
Get woven storage baskets for bathroom items. To add more storage to the bathroom, look for deep woven baskets that you can slide under the sink. Put toiletries, spare toilet paper rolls, and other items in the baskets. You can also use large storage baskets to store extra towels.
Add shelving above the toilet or sink for storage. Another option is to install shelves above the toilet for candles, toilet paper, and other items. Make sure the shelves are just as long as the toilet and not too wide so they do not extend too far over the toilet. Shelves above the sink are a good option for extra storage as well. Try having one long shelf that is not too wide so you can still use the sink. You may want to put a shelf between the sink and mirror to store toothbrushes and soap to keep the countertop clear.
Put in a mirror to make the space seem bigger. Include a mirror over the sink so people can see themselves when they get ready for the day. It will also help to keep the space more open. The mirror should be as wide as the sink. If you don’t have room for a mirror over the sink or vanity, install one on the back of the bathroom door. A full-length mirror would work well here.
Include a chair or a bench if there is room. A chair by the sink or close to the door can provide some seating in the bathroom. A bench is a good option if the bathroom is going to be used by multiple people at once and you have the space for it. Choose wooden, metal, or plastic seating. If you go for an upholstered piece, make sure it is water- and mold-resistant. Make sure the chair or bench does not crowd the room or make it feel too small.
