To be livable, your new bathroom must accommodate a host of items you use every day. Take a look at what you store in your bath now to make an honest assessment of the types of storage you’ll need.
Simplicity is a rule of thumb for modern design. Make sure that you are keeping open and organic space free of clutter. Use built-in shelving and cabinetry to hide unwanted personal items. Leave all toiletries and novelty items out of your bathroom space, this is a place for relaxation and clean design, don’t clutter it up with things that are unnecessary. Choose tile and backsplash with geometric shapes to add interest and character without sacrificing minimalistic design.
Your local building code will dictate certain minimum clearances. For instance, it may call for 21 inches of clear space in front of the toilet or 4 inches between a sink basin and the wall. Local codes may differ from national codes, so be sure you or your designer is aware of your municipality’s requirements at the start of the design process.
To select fixtures and amenities for your baths, think about how you use your current bath. Knott suggests asking yourself a host of questions and sharing the answers with your bathroom designer: Are you right- or left-handed? Do you like to have toiletries and grooming appliances out in the open or tucked away? Would you like a seat in your shower?
