The bathroom has come along way in the past one hundred years. Once just a basic tub set in front of the living room fire and filled with buckets of water the bathing experience is now a luxury in almost every western home. Back then a "bathroom" was something only the wealthy and privileged could afford to have in their house. It was this trend which lead to the mass production of bathroom products.
A very functional design can be incorporated for bathrooms as small as 5' X 8' in dimension. Sacrificing a large closet or partitioning off a small area of a larger room will provide the area needed. The first tip should be taking into account the location of electrical outlets and water sources. If these vital utilities do not already exist the key components of the room which are the toilet sink and tub or shower should be roughly sketched into the floor plan to allow proper placement of these utilities. The second factor will be the entrance door placement as this will determine the layout of the bathroom. If the door is located in the center of the room the toilet and sink will usually be placed on one side of the room with the tub or shower on the other side.
For the sanitary ware go with wall-hung or standard close-coupled toilet and basin with pedestal with acute angles and a contemporary design. Abstract towel rails and wenge wall-hung furniture fit well in the fantasy bathroom giving it that calm almost surreal look.
