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”.
Adequate lighting is another element that really makes or breaks the bathroom’’s functionality as well as safety. The best bathroom layouts include a blend of four types of light: task, ambient, accent, and decorative. Lighting should happen from the ceiling, from the walls, in the bathing zone, and wherever else improves the use and safety of the space. While powder rooms provide an excellent clean slate to really make a statement and a splash, design-wise, in your home, most bathrooms will be best received when they make sense with the design of the rest of your home. Colors don’t need to necessarily match, but they should flow to make the bathroom layout an appropriate part of the bigger whole. Hardware, such as the bathroom doorknobs, and other features, such as the doorframe and/or bathroom door color facing the rest of the house, should be consistent with whatever is in the style of the home elsewhere.
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.
