We don't typically think of bathrooms as being stylish but that doesn't mean they can't or shouldn't be beautiful and charming. This is one of those times when the little things matter and that's exactly what we're going to focus on today. Get ready to be bombarded with a ton of cool bathroom decorating ideas on a budget, each meant to improve the space without breaking the bank. These ideas will show you how to keep the bathroom remodel cost low by crafting all the accessories yourself.
Bathroom Layout Tip 3: Provide sufficient space. When you consider the heavy demands of a small bathroom, it might be tempting to try to squeeze more than what`s wise into the hard-working space. But more features in less space doesn`t actually translate into a better bathroom layout. In fact, the opposite is true. For example, toilets need 30” of space. The smallest shower size allowed is 30”x30”. The center of a sink should be 20” away from the wall. Generally speaking, double sinks do best with 36” between them. If you simply don't have the space, realistically, for all the things, it's time to reevaluate the functionality and eliminate the components you don't absolutely need.
Typically, the vanity area of the bathroom involves one or two sinks, the accompanying countertop, and some sort of storage, whether it's a shelf or drawers or cupboards or a combination of the three. Above the sink but within the vanity functional zone is typically a marge mirror. Today's bathroom mirror is more often framed than not, although that is not always the case. Bathrooms with double sinks tend to have less counterspace, but for a bathroom used by many people or the entire family, double sinks are incredibly useful. Contemporary master bathrooms that are on the smaller side are moving more toward one-sink bathrooms so that counter space is ample and relatively spacious. So, in a nutshell, the design of the vanity zone will depend largely upon the users of the bathroom.

It`s best to decide what size your tub should be based on the dimensions and the layout of the bathroom and to aim for visual harmony. Avoid putting a large tub in a small bathroom. Even if it may seem like an ok idea at first, you can eventually feel like the room is claustrophobic and tiny because of that. A lot of times oval tubs seem to look longer than rectangular tubs. That`s usually just an impression. The standard tub size is generally the same regardless of the shape of the tub and has everything to do with the type.
