Whether you are designing a brand new bathroom or re-modeling your old one, whatever your style, the options are countless. Looking through interior design magazines is a great place to start, but here are 4 tips that will help you in making the right decisions and avoiding the most common design mistakes from the start:

1. Size Matters:

A massive bath in a catalogue might say “luxurious” but in a 2x3m bathroom will spell “crammed”. Whether you have a large or small space you will need to ensure that your bathroom furniture are in keep with your room’s size and shape. Ensure that there is a good balance between used and empty space to move comfortably. Having lots of space in our bathroom not only makes the space look bigger but also leaves open the possibility of adding bathroom furniture should you need to in the future.

2. Think Storage Space:

When designing your bathroom remember to make sure you add some storage for your shampoos, towels and beauty products. A common mistake that people make is focusing so much on the colours or bathroom furniture they are going to choose and forget to consider space for storage. Whether you choose to install shelves or a mirror cabinet it’s important that your bathroom has enough storage space for your and your family’s needs. Remember that storage furniture can also add to the aesthetic aspect of the room.

3. No windows equals no ventilation:

A bathroom without a window will feel damp and gloomy. This is why making sure your bathroom has a window before you start designing it is crucial. Having a window will result into a fresh space with good air ventilation and natural light, avoiding any condensation or odor issues.

4. Keep it simple:

Lastly, designing a bathroom might seem an easy job at first but all the different choices can make this task confusing. Incorporating different bathroom furniture designs, adding too many colours and too many storage units and cabinets can leave the space feel busy and asymmetrical. Try to find a style that you like and stick to it. Choosing all your bathroom furniture from the same range is usually best, and keep your colour pallet at maximum 3 colours depending on the size of your room. Remember to keep it simple, cause after your bathroom is a place to relax.
