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.
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.
Before you pick the size of your tub, be sure to check exactly how much weight the floor can support. This is particularly important if you choose a tub made of marble or stone because even a small or standard size tub of this kind can turn out to be incredibly heavy. Some tubs are simply too special to commit to the standard bathtub size chart. This can happen if the tub has a particularly unusual shape. Even so, you can usually rely on the typical measurements of that particular type of tub. We‘ve already mentioned the ones for freestanding tubs but if you prefer a corner tub for example, a standard one would measure 60” by 60” with a water depth of 20”.
