While a successfully functional kitchen utilizes the primary work triangle, the bathroom doesn’t typically have a one-size-fits-all functional layout. There are zones of functionality to consider, though, within any bathroom, which will play a role in determining the best bathroom layout for your space. While the functionality of most bathrooms tends to revolve around the toilet, you most likely don't want the actual design layout of the bathroom to emphasize this fact or feature. As far as the preferred layout of the toilet, the most common design decision, space permitting, is to tuck it away or even hide it somewhere, either behind a door or a half wall or the vanity. Visually, the more you can remove the focus of the bathroom from this fixture, the more aesthetic the bathroom will look and feel.
Bathroom Layout Tip 5: Remember ventilation. The bathroom that is used regularly will benefit significantly from some method of ventilation, either for clearing and freshening the air or for removing heavy, damp air from after a steamy shower. Not only does this feel better for the user, but it’s much easier on the home and can actually help to avoid structural damage.
Actually, the idea of a high, horizontal window is pretty awesome and perfect for almost any shower or bathroom no matter the type of style. You can even have more than one such window, as exemplified in this contemporary bathroom featured on Ogawafisher. Another possibility is to illuminate the shower indirectly. Instead of having a window in the shower you can have the window positioned on the opposite wall so the light enters the shower and the rest of the bathroom. Of course, that means a transparent glass enclosure is in order for the shower.
