The best bathroom designs and ideas from the House & Garden archive. Thinking of redecorating your bathroom and don't know where to start? There are so many elements to consider it can be mind-boggling - there are all the fittings, from baths and showers to taps and sinks, vanity units and mirrors, and then you've got to think about colour schemes and whether to go for a modern or traditional style. We've handily collated all our favourite bathroom ideas for your delectation. Bathrooms are often the smallest room in the house so it's wise to include as much storage as possible - you always own more pots, tubes and bottles than you think and these are so much better stashed away in orderly fashion. Although white bathrooms can look ever so smart, it's important to make sure they don't feel too clinical. Why not go for a cosy combination of wallpaper and colourful tiles? After all, a bathroom should be a retreat, the place you can sink into a deep bubble bath at the end of a long day.
