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.
Modern industrial decor has been popular for some time, however, it is just taking on new life among bathroom trends. This Diesel Open Workshop bathroom design, also from Scavolini, is a wonderful example of how to incorporate this style of decor in a bathroom. The warm, dark hues complement the large Lunar mirror that is set atop a copper-finish glass wall panel. Architectural pipe-style fixtures accent the space nicely. In what is actually a blast from the past, one of the new bathroom trends is hanging chairs. Originally popular in the 1960’s, these egg-shaped seats can hang from the ceiling, or from a stand as in this bathroom. Their resurgence is likely due to their organic feel, and cozy, nest-like seat. The feeling of being nestled is perfect for a bathroom retreat.
