For many people, the bathroom is a sanctuary in their homes. It’s not just a space for washing or grooming; it’s a place to relax, unwind and even recharge after a long day. As such, if you’re going through the process of renovating your bathroom, it’s essential to ensure that the space is as functional and comfortable as possible.

With a few simple steps, you can ensure that your bathroom will be the perfect oasis for you and your family. From ventilation to storage, layout to lighting, there are five key considerations to keep in mind.


Proper ventilation is essential to ensure air circulation throughout the room and prevent mold growth from moisture. To create efficient ventilation in a bathroom, look into options such as installing an exhaust fan or adding a bathroom window to help reduce humidity and improve air quality.


Consider how much storage you need in your bathroom, then design accordingly. Think about the items you will store, such as toiletries, towels, cleaning supplies, and medications. Depending on the space available, you can use a combination of shelves, drawers, and cabinets for organization and convenience.


The bathroom should be well-lit to make it easier to see, apply makeup, shave or put in contacts. A great lighting plan will include several sources of lighting. Consider using a combination of recessed lights, wall sconces, and natural light for the best results.


A good bathroom layout will add extra space and remove clutter. To plan your bathroom layout, consider who will use the bathroom – such as adults, children, and the elderly – and design the layout with their needs in mind. Remember to account for the shower or tub location, toilet placement, sink size, and counter space.
