Typically, the vanity area of the bathroom involves one or two sinks, the accompanying countertop, and some sort of storage, whether it's a shelf or drawers or cupboards or a combination of the three. Above the sink but within the vanity functional zone is typically a marge mirror. Today's bathroom mirror is more often framed than not, although that is not always the case. Bathrooms with double sinks tend to have less counterspace, but for a bathroom used by many people or the entire family, double sinks are incredibly useful. Contemporary master bathrooms that are on the smaller side are moving more toward one-sink bathrooms so that counter space is ample and relatively spacious. So, in a nutshell, the design of the vanity zone will depend largely upon the users of the bathroom.
A powder room, also known as a half bath, contains simply a toilet and a sink. A 3/4 bath contains a toilet, sink, and either a tub or shower. A full bath contains all four elements – toilet, sink, shower, and tub. Master bathrooms are more likely to have a shower than they are a tub, although the showers of today's master baths are trending toward a larger footprint than traditional stand-up showers. Showers are certainly becoming more luxurious and elaborate, including multiple shower heads and streaming options, seating, and expanded walls. Enormous tubs reminiscent of jacuzzi-style fixtures did have their heyday, but they are going the way of all oversized and underused components in the bathroom. Instead, master bathrooms in particular are moving toward deeper, smaller tubs designed for two. This is both more economical in bathroom real estate as well as hot water heating.
Bathroom Layout Tip 2: Keep plumbing close to original. This applies primarily to a bathroom remodel, of course, although plumbing location does play into the design decisions of new construction as well. The toilet in particular is what will dictate the layout and design the most, because the 4” stack drain is difficult and very expensive to relocate. Most layouts, to stay on budget, will do well to design around the existing toilet`s location.
