There is a lot more to designing a bathroom than choosing taps, showers, and tiles. if you get it right, then you will have a beautiful, functional space that you will enjoy spending time in every day. Or get it wrong, and you could end up with a bathroom plagued by impractical niggles or, worse, that needs to be completely refitted. Watch out for these common mistakes and designing your dream bathroom needn't become a nightmare.
We have all been there: falling in love with glorious waterfall showers, statement sinks and enormous soaking tubs after a trip to a glamorous bathroom showroom. In reality, these room sets have been designed around the suite with perfect proportions, so it will never feel cramped or ‘too much'.
Put that oversized bath in your average family home though and it soon becomes an albatross. Too often it becomes a glorified towel holder, filling it up takes forever and it's too big to get children into and out of safely. You are better getting something more suited to the space that you'll use every day.
