With every new year comes the urge to reboot—and we can guarantee that this feeling will only be magnified when 2020 officially comes to a close. There’s no doubt that the bathroom is the ideal space to begin your design refresh; after all, it’s where all of your self-care rituals take place, and it should be designed with tranquillity at top of mind.
