What makes a stunning bathroom? Good planning with functional bathroom design ideas right from the start!

We all have different requirements for our bathrooms and these all need to be carefully thought through at the bathroom planning stage. There are lots of factors that go into creating beautiful bathrooms that function well, can cater to the needs of the home and are also a pleasure to spend time in.

Bathroom Design Ideas

On the practical side of bathroom design, starting with a great floor plan is key, having the right amount of bathroom storage for towels and toiletries is essential and developing a good plan for General, Task and Accent lighting are some of the main areas of design to consider. Style and ambiance are equally as important if you’re wanting a stunning bathroom!

For your bathroom to be a true success you need to decide on a hero item that will be a strong focal point of the overall design and truly deliver a standout bathroom! One of the most important design items in the bathroom is the vanity. I For Style often treats the vanity as the focal point, with good reason. Once you’ve decided on the overall style of your bathroom, you can then give some thought to what type of vanity you would like and this will anchor the room and bring the overall design together

The three vanities in this blog are very different in style and they also serve very different needs. The first custom vanity sits proudly in a contemporary, coastal house. The spotted gum timber vanity is exquisite with simple, clean lines and an engineered stone top.

The second vanity is in fact a hall table that has been converted to use in a guest bathroom that is used infrequently so storage is not an issue.

Our third example is also custom-made. This bathroom and laundry combination is in an Airbnb so there’s plenty of storage space, a washer/dryer and the above counter basin serves also for any handwashing that may need to be done.
