Find ways to make your bathroom more functional in simple ways by reading our suggestions below.

1. It Starts With Good Lighting

No homeowner has ever said, how can I make it harder to find my bathroom at night. Putting in the right lighting is important and something that you need to focus on when trying to increase functionality. Whether installing a lit vanity mirror or track lighting, the more illumination you can add to this room, the better.

2. Pay Attention to the Positioning of the Toilet

If you have the toilet right in the middle of your bathroom, you will have to give up a lot of precious real estate. The best way to save space in regards to your toilet is by putting it at the furthest point away from the door and behind a partition.

3. Consider the Color Scheme

Having a bathroom that is not in line with the rest of the décor in a home can create a bit of an eyesore. In order to get the right design for your bathroom, you will have to take the time to consider what type of colors best suit the décor that is already in place.

4. Forget About Large Vanities

While having a large vanity may seem like a great addition to a bathroom, it will usually take up too much room. By getting a single pedestal sink, you will be able to save space and get the faucet functionality you need.

5. Don’t Forget About Storage

Storage is one of the biggest issues that most homeowners face. Getting free-standing storage racks or cabinets is a great way to reduce clutter in a bathroom.
