The functionality of your bathroom should be efficient and easy.
Along with design, the functionality of your bathroom should be at the top of your list of priorities when designing your bathroom. You need to find out what is necessary and what is not necessary in order to reduce clutter and increase efficiency in your bathroom. This can be done through a number of different methods. Functionality also factors in accessibility and comfort, meaning that you need to take several things into account while improving your bathroom design. Small changes may be all you need, but if your bathroom design requires more attention, you might have to think a bit bigger in terms of a remodel.
Bathtubs are a very common fixture in most bathrooms. However, as we move more towards a modern/minimalist style of bathroom, bathtubs are becoming less of a staple in bathrooms. If you enjoy taking baths, you should definitely consider including a bathtub in your bathroom, but if taking baths isn’t something that you value as much, consider removing the bathtub from the bathroom. One thing to mention is that you have kids, you may want to consider keeping a bathtub in your bathroom so the kids have something to bathe in. Keep this in mind if this if you do have small children. If the bathtub is just taking up space, there’s no use of having it in your bathroom. The space that is freed up from removing the bathtub can used for other fixtures that can promote the efficiency of your bathroom. Removing your bathtub will give you more space for something like a luxury walk-in shower with a beautiful design. Because a bathtub will likely be your most expensive fixture in your bathroom, you will definitely want to take your time and decide if this is something you need in your bathroom.

Another way to hide a part of your bathroom is through means of creative storage options. There are several ways to go about this.

You can also try some more unconventional ways of storing items, such as baskets hanging from the ceiling. One of the more up and coming features that can be hidden in your bathroom is the incorporation of recessed storage. If your bathroom will allow for a cutout in your wall, you should consider this option. This will create space in your bathroom as well as give you an effective method for storage.
