Jennifer Ott is the Principal Designer at Jennifer Ott Design, LLC in San Francisco. She lends her insight into what features bathroom designers wish for.

She also recommends getting dual single sink vanities instead of a double sink vanity. This way each person has their own sink and takes the luxury of having dual sinks to the next level.

Toilets are an item where comfort and cleanliness matters. Ott says that wall mounted toilets are the best bet because they are much easier to clean and take up less floor space than a standard floor mounted toilet.
