What Designers Say You Should Never Do in the Bathroom

Wood Floors

If you can’t resist the look of wood, consider porcelain tiles that come in planks and have graining, meant to mimic the real thing.

Skimpy Storage Space

Too Trendy Fixtures and Design

Center Stage Toilet

Lots of people want an open bathroom and will take down walls separating the toilet from the rest of the space. But for very obvious reasons ventilation  privacy it’s nice to have a water closet. We always try to hide the toilet, or at the very least, not make it the focal point. Instead, he advises making your first view the vanity, or if you have the space, a freestanding tub.

Over The Top Design

Bathrooms are meant to be clean spaces, so it makes sense to keep the decorating simple., we suggests decorating with practical items like beautiful containers for your Q-tips and tissues or an eye-catching soap dispenser. This lets you reserve your hidden storage for things you don’t want to see on a daily basis like extra toilet paper or cleaning products.
