When choosing the staples of your bathroom such as your basin, shower and vanity go for clean lines and traditional shapes that will never go out of style.
Let there be light. Nobody wants a damp, dark space so if you are just beginning to build or relocate your bathroom make sure it’s on an outside wall with a window.
