Make It Flexible But Be Realistic
It's not just a question of asking yourself what your bathroom lacks - it's more about getting flexibility into the room to get it to work for you now and for years to come.
Make The Most Of Space
If there's space, think big - double sinks aren't just fashionable and a draw for future buyers - they're very practical, too. Try to create as much built-in storage as possible, which should save shelf space in other rooms.
Make It Seem Bigger
Use every trick in the book - from bright lighting and large mirrors to pale, reflective flooring and subtle window treatments - to improve the amount of light (and the feeling of space) in what is often the smallest room in the house.
Get A Proper Job Done
The thing to remember about a bathroom makeover is that you really can't do it yourself. Plumbing, tiling and electrics all require professional expertise, and that costs money. A full-on bathroom refit comes a close second to a kitchen revamp in terms of expense and inconvenience.
