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.
Although double sink bathroom setups often look symmetrical, that’s not always the case. The two washbasins on this vanity, for example, occupy the left side of the unit while the rest of the counter remains open. Each sink has an oval mirror and a hanging pendant lamp above it so there is a bit of symmetry here after all. A single large mirror can be shared and can serve as an element that unifies the bathroom. The double sink vanity has the opposite effect, dividing the bathroom and sharing it between two matching sides. If you like the idea, learn how to install a bathroom mirror and you can reinvent your bathroom in no time. There are two main ways in which you can plan a bathroom for two. You can either combine two sinks into a single vanity with a long, shared counter or you can opt for two smaller but separate vanities, each with its own sink, counter and mirror.
Ideally, if you have two separate vanities in the bathroom, each should offer some sort of storage for basics such toothpaste, a soap dispenser, a hand towel, etc. Usually these would go in the cabinet under the sink but this design is a bit different. We should also mention that double sink vanities come with a few disadvantages as well, the biggest one being related to space. A bathroom like this one, for example, is quite large, bigger than most standard bathrooms so not everyone can enjoy its benefits Another concern could be the reduced counter space. The second sink takes up considerable space on the counter so you might not want to give that up. Of course, it all works out if there’s plenty of space to go around, like in this case. The bathroom backsplash is a great focal point here.
We almost forget about the mirror which is perhaps the most important bathroom accessory. You can change the look of your bathroom by simply replacing the old mirror with a new one. It could be nice to try a different shape and even a different size this time. You can install the mirror yourself if you follow some easy steps. Check out the instructions on how to professionally install a bathroom mirror first. There are also a few things you can do to make your existing bathroom furniture look nicer and to give it a fresh and new look. For instance, you could give the vanity a quick makeover. You can change its look from boring and generic into original and chic. This can be done by slightly altering the design of the drawer fronts and by installing new hardware.

A drop in standard tub size usually 60” long, 30” wide with 16” water depth. As usual, you can most likely find smaller and larger versions too. A drop in tub has no visible finished sides but its rim is however visible, in contrast with under-mount tubs. Since the tub is an essential part of the bathroom, it’s important to take your time and to choose the style and size that best suits you based on the shape you prefer, the material you choose, the weight of the tub as well as your bathing habits.
