The Five Deadly Sins of Bathroom Design


THINK PROPORTIONS


Having tiny sinks in big bathrooms or massive sinks in small bathrooms doesn’t really work. If you have a large bathroom fill the space with a double sink or in a small bathroom think cleverly to make a streamlined sink area. If you have the space, fill it with a large cast iron tub. A standard-sized bath is too small for relaxing.


GRIM LIGHTING



Avoid the glare of halogens and use wall lights for directional lighting placed either side of mirrors and pendants to break up your bathroom lighting. You may not always want a bright light so use dimmers for those relaxing bath times.



NO STORAGE



We need a lot of stuff for the bathroom but we don’t always want to see it or have a bathroom cabinet. Make an inbuilt shelf when you design your shower and tile it. Build shelves or a cupboard to house everything you ever need.


DON’T SAVE ON SHOWERS AND TAPS


Go for hotel quality showers and taps and be bold and mix your metals. Choose large shower heads with great water pressure. Look for unusual reclaimed taps or make your own.


SHOWER CUBICLES


Avoid the ugly shower cubicle in the corner. Use walls around your shower and build your shower door into cupboards and shelving to avoid a ‘glass’ box.
