Choosing Your Bathroom Floor Plan

There are many things to consider when designing bathroom. But the most important task is developing a floor plan. In order to do that you must take in account the size of your room and the type of bathroom style you are looking to create.

There are some questions you may want to think about. How many square feet do you need for a bathroom? How big is a guest bathroom? How many square feet do you need for a half bath? How much space do you need for a toilet? As you consider the layout of your bathroom, take advantage of every square inch. You want to make the most of your space. Be sure the tub you choose is the right size for the space which is a common mistake people make when designing. Decide whether you want a tub or you would rather save on square footage by creating a shower. Or maybe you want a spa shower with a bench. Now you can work on the actual floorplan of the bathroom.

Jack and Jill

One floorplan you can go with is a Jack and Jill bathroom. A Jack and Jill bathroom is a bathroom that has two or more entrances. Usually the entrances are from two bedrooms but there might be an entrance from a bedroom and one entrance from the corridor. If your bathroom is on the smaller side, you may want to consider using pocket doors.

Small Floor Plan

One of the most common bath layouts is a 9×5-foot space with a vanity, toilet, and tub-shower combo lined up next to one another. If you do not have a ton of space this narrow floor plan is an efficient option. It also helps reduce construction costs because all of the plumbing fixtures are contained within one wall. You can incorporate a floating vanity to save space instead of an off-the-shelf cabinet.

MasterBath Floor Plan

A masterbath has more of a luxury feel. The sky is the limit when designing your personal bathroom. If you have the room you can create a magical ultimate bathing experience while incorporating architectural elements. If you have a long wall for a spacious vanity you can create a makeup vanity. A walk-in shower with a space for drying off keeps water contained in one area. You can even create a separate toilet area to create more privacy. Contact your iBathTile specialist for assistance.
