An Australian architect has revealed the five things she would never put in a small bathroom.
Georgina Wilson said to never have inward opening doors, put the toilet in the path of entry and even include both a bath and a shower in a small bathroom.
The Sydney architect also advised against installing toilet brush holders into the wall and putting in under-floor heating.
Her hot takes divided hundreds in the comments as many agreed however others said they loved their baths and showers as well as floor heating.
Georgina’s first design no-no was inward opening doors saying: ‘It’s much more space efficient to either use a pocket sliding door or an outward opening door’.

Secondly, she said never include both a bath and a shower as having just a ‘generous’ shower keeps the room looking more ‘open and spacious’.
‘Never install heated flooring. There is just not enough dry floor space in a small bathroom to make it worth your while,’ Georgina added.
The architect also said not to place the toilet in direct view of the entry.
‘Set up the vanity or a window as a main view upon entering the bathroom,’ she said.
Finally, Georgina would never fix to toilet brush directly to the wall.
‘You’ll undoubtedly want to throw it in the bin at some stage. The built in holders are overly fussy and committed,’ she said.
‘Do you really want unnecessary holes in your carefully waterproofed beautifully tiled walls?’
Georgina shared her five bathroom faux pas in a TikTok video that amassed more than 811,600 views and hundreds of comments.
‘Regardless of plumbing fixtures. I keep toilet brush out of sight. Not sure why anyone would want it out at all times,’ one viewer said.
‘As a bathtub lover this explains all the renovations with large showers and no tubs,’ a second wrote.
‘Unnecessary holes in tiles are always a regret for sure,’ a third added.
One woman said she had never seen a bathroom with an outward opening door and some pointed out it’s required by law in some countries to have a door that swings out from the bathroom.
‘It’s actually safer and less space consuming. In Poland is obligated by law to make outward opening door in every bathroom,’ one replied.
Many disagreed with some of Georgina’s points especially on not having heated floor or a bath and a shower.
‘My bathrooms have heated floors and they are the beat feature of my house,’ one woman said and another agreed: ‘My tiny, tiny poor-person bathroom has a heated floor and it was the best $300 I ever spent.’
‘Parents of young children would disagree about the bath tub,’ a mum chimed in.
