The fire hazard is distracting from the lovely bathroom. Also it seems inconvenient to hang towel bar over toilet.

The towell (and peoples hands) is much safer above the toilet!

I wish to know if this bathroom plan could work to my bathroom - The mesure of my bathroom are, the back wall is 1.35metres x 1.50 the other wall. The door is in the same position from where the picture was taken and it open to the left. Now, my bathroom plan is, where you have the W.C is the sink, where you have the shower and facing the my sink is the bidet(will eliminate) in the same position and next to it is the W.C. And where you have the sink there is a wall but there is a door in the lower part that are used to put the dirty clothes. This part was taken from a closet that are in the next room. Probably we can open in this place something similar.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

This 55-square-foot bathroom may not have a soaking tub, but it has everything else needed for someone to come out feeling fresh and clean. In the simple and straightforward layout, designer Peter Balsam saved space by using a round vanity. "It fits perfectly within the niche and softens up the entire space," says Balsam.Floor and wall tiles: gray limestone, Artistic Tile; vanity: Camber petite, Kohler
Charmean Neithart Interiors, LLC. added this to 12 Design Tips to Make a Small Bathroom Better
4. Round the vanity. Tight spaces can make sharp corners hip hazards. If the corners of a vanity would get in the way, opt for a rounded style. Yes, a round vanity can work in a square space. No more bruised hips!
Steven Corley Randel, Architect added this to Key Measurements to Make the Most of Your Bathroom
When space is extremely limited, you can have a solution like this bathroom. An oval-shaped sink and cabinet are nestled into a concave wall. The toilet is snugly placed next to the shower, but there is enough space to enter and exit through the glass doors. The architects have even managed to insert a conventional medicine cabinet in the niche above the sink. Sinks will be the most versatile bathroom element with respect to different sizes that can work. Standard tubs are 32 inches wide (81.3 centimeters) and 60 inches (152.4 centimeters) long, but you can find many variations in length, width, depth and shape. Showers are required to have a minimum of 1,024 square inches, which is 32 inches by 32 inches of interior space — although it’s best to aim for at least 36 inches (91.4 centimeters) by 36 inches. Toilets can fit into spaces as small as 30 inches (76.2 centimeters) wide and 54 inches (137.2 centimeters) long, but at least 36 inches wide and 60 inches deep is much more comfortable.More:Design Basics to Help You Think Through a Large Master BathKey Measurements to Help You Design Your Kitchen
