Particularly where the bathroom is concerned, form follows function. In other words, a photographically beautiful bathroom will do little good and be little appreciated if it doesn‘t meet with the functionality requirements of its users. For example, barn doors on a small master bath may be just the thing to maximize space in both the bathroom and the bedroom.
Adequate lighting is another element that really makes or breaks the bathroom’’s functionality as well as safety. The best bathroom layouts include a blend of four types of light: task, ambient, accent, and decorative. Lighting should happen from the ceiling, from the walls, in the bathing zone, and wherever else improves the use and safety of the space. While powder rooms provide an excellent clean slate to really make a statement and a splash, design-wise, in your home, most bathrooms will be best received when they make sense with the design of the rest of your home. Colors don’t need to necessarily match, but they should flow to make the bathroom layout an appropriate part of the bigger whole. Hardware, such as the bathroom doorknobs, and other features, such as the doorframe and/or bathroom door color facing the rest of the house, should be consistent with whatever is in the style of the home elsewhere.
Ideally, a large shower window or glass wall would open up the bathroom to a private garden. This way privacy is not an issue and you can also control exactly what you see from in there and you can create a very zen and fresh decor. What if you want natural light in your shower/ bathroom but there's no way you can make a full-height window work? Perhaps a skylight can be an option or perhaps you could opt for a long, horizontal window just under the ceiling. It`s hight enough to offer total privacy and to let you have solid walls but it still serves as a source of natural light.
