There are several essential elements to consider when you think about bathroom design. While it might seem a little daunting, if you get your bathroom layout right from the start it will make the difference between an alright design and one that’s just right. First you should ensure your measurements are correct and then you can begin to experiment. These inspiring spaces will help you find the design that works for your home.
The classic coastal theme can be extended to the bathroom where painted panelling and a plinth help define the bathing area.
