Principles of Bathroom Design

The bathroom is the most private space in the house.
It is also a place where vanity is not just a piece of furniture.
The ideal bathroom should be spacious and beautiful,
but when the space available is limited, it is critical to place each element
strategically to have a functional layout without sacrificing beauty.
When designing a bathroom the first thing you want to avoid is a wall
in front of the entrance. To give depth and a sense of perspective,
I place the small elements, vanities or tubs, across from the entrance;
the large elements, showers & toilets, at the opposite wall.
When space is a luxury, I have placed an open large shower
in front of the entrance. There are many variations in the
above basic conceptual design, of course, due to peculiar bathroom shapes.
