Plan For Specific Functions
Have a specific place in the bathroom design for each essential function. There should be a place for washing with a contained counter area and sink. There should be separate areas for the tub, shower and toilet area. Decide if your if your bathroom needs a combined shower/tub or if you can do with just a shower. Also decide if the toilet is a part of the open room or if it will have its own separate room. If you are going to have more artistic fixtures then you should keep the wall space clear.
Make sure the bathroom design includes fixtures and materials that keep with the overall taste and essential character of your house. Don't over design the bathroom and make it better than all other rooms in the house. Also don't think you have to purchase the most expensive items to get the most out of your bathroom design.

If you really like a fixture but can't afford it then determine what you like about it and talk with a professional designer, they will be able to help you find something with the same likes as the last fixture but at a price you can afford.
When doing bathroom design always make sure your design response is proportional to the problem. After you have planned take the time to study it. You bathroom should be smaller than your bedroom and ideally smaller than your dining room as well. Maintain a balance between the bathroom design and the master suite. By following these tips you can get the most out of your bathroom design.
