  1. Ditch the tub for your bathroom

In today’s times, everyone is so up on their toes, that all they need is a good walk-in shower. Save your bathroom space, by ditching the traditional bath tub.

Light is important to make your bathroom look spacious, so position your walk in shower in such a way that it is near a window or under the skylight. Bask the sunbeams or gaze at the shining stars for a heavenly effect. The glass door will allow the natural light to flow in and out the shower.

If you really want to have a bath tub and walk in shower together then put them adjacent to each other by aligning them to the bathroom’s longest wall. By placing the tub against the knee wall of the walk in shower, the opposite wall is left vacant for bathroom fittings.
