Include plenty of storage
The first thing you need to address is exactly what you need to store in the space so that your vanity design can accommodate accordingly. Simple, smart storage solutions such as a mirrored shaving cabinet will increase your storage options, hidden behind a mirror that you would be including in the space anyway. Adding a niche in your shower will allow for neat recessed storage for all of your soap bottles, and including drawers in your vanity unit over cupboards will increase your available storage space.
Don’t overcrowd the space
If you have a small bathroom space it might mean that you have to compromise on the number of items included in the room. Not all bathrooms have the capacity to comfortably fit a bath, double shower, double vanity and toilet, so you will need to ask yourself ‘do I really need it all?’.
Only include a separate bath and shower in your design if you realistically have the room, otherwise combine the two with a shower over bath. If you don’t have young children, or you seldom use a bath then do you really need one? The space could be better used to accommodate additional storage or a large shower.
Remember the bathroom is a place of relaxation, and if you’ve crammed every possible fixture and fitting into it, I doubt it’s going to feel very relaxing at all.
