Your bathroom is a place of relaxation and utility. However, learning how to design the perfect bathroom for your home can be difficult when that “perfection” looks different in the minds of every individual.
While this may not make things easy, it gives you the creative freedom to tailor your bathroom to your specific tastes and needs to make it unique to you. Note that there are some considerations you need to make to ensure your perfect bathroom marries form and function.
1. Wet and Dry Zones
In every bathroom, there are two zones: wet and dry. As the names suggest, wet zones are where you’ll use water. They include showers and baths. On the other hand, dry zones are where you want to avoid moisture.

An example is a storage space in the bathroom. This consideration will help you decide how much space you need between your fixtures and dictate what materials you need for specific bathroom areas. For example, you should have tiles in the shower to avoid damaging the walls with moisture.
Taking this into account allows you to plan ahead and pick a tile design that complements the rest of the bathroom. For instance, you might go for a modern glass tile shower if you want something that reflects light and helps keep the room looking nice and bright.
2. Considering the Fixtures
On a similar note, you need to know what kinds of fixtures you want to use or what your bathroom’s space will allow you to use. For example, the toilet—your throne—can either be a wall-mounted or floor-mounted type. Wall-mounted toilets will take up less space, but they complicate the plumbing. The opposite is true for floor-mounted toilets.
Another fixture consideration may be deciding whether you want a combined shower and bath, a built-in bath, or simply a standalone shower. The amount of space you have to work with will often determine your choice, but it’s still something to think about since this will be your dream bathroom.
3. Providing Storage
The last consideration we’ll touch upon is storage. You can’t design the perfect bathroom for your home without having a place to store your toiletries and personal effects.

You don’t want to save this for last and add storage wherever you have space left. Instead, you want to plan and even prioritize storage within the bathroom so that you have enough of it and can incorporate it seamlessly into the design.
For example, an easy storage solution is to add cabinets under your sinks. This way, they can occupy the same space as them.
