Planning and Organization
Good bathroom design makes functionality a high priority.
The bathroom is no place for stress and frustration. But without proper planning and organization, you might find yourself cursing every square inch of your space. This section will offer ideas for keeping your bathroom functional, which means preventing design problems like your shower door not completely opening because the toilet is in the way (as for making your bathroom beautiful, check out our color section or find inspiration in our NKBA award-winners slide show).
