A big, bright, open bathroom is almost as important to me as a big open plan kitchen. If I was to design my own bathroom, I know exactly what key features I’d like to see in it.
A white porcelain toilet with space either side, so I don’t feel crushed like I do in my current bathroom. Trapped between the wall and the sheet of glass that acts as my shower curtain. I’d love two large rectangle drop-in sinks or white oval lefroy brooks twin sinks. Twin sinks in a bathroom is often shown in American movies but I’ve never seen a bathroom with them in a home in the UK.
As for the shower, I love the big walk-in ones that have the massive shower head coming from the ceiling. For the bath, I’d love one of these stand-alone clawfoot tubs. I’d go for the ones with the taps in the middle and love the idea of having one that looked out onto a sea, lake or river.
Of course, my dream bathroom is one I’ll probably never be able to afford. But there’s nothing wrong with dreaming. Right?
