There are hundreds of items that we use everyday and take for granted, often forgetting to allow for them when planning. They can cause budget upsets at the end of a project when you realize that you have forgotten to select and allow for the door handles for example.

The same can be said for toilet roll holders and towel rails.

We all use them but because they are not part of the main construction documentation they are often overlooked.

The simple art of selecting faucets and spouts so that the water actually reaches the basin. You would not believe some of the things we see as designers, a few simple measurements will ensure that the water does not flow straight down the plug hole or another is when you turn on the faucet the water pressure is so high that it hits the basin and jumps out at you and wets your clothing, very embarrasing as a guest in a home. I have done this so often, a different faucet would have made all the difference.
