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.
Particularly where the bathroom is concerned, form follows function. In other words, a photographically beautiful bathroom will do little good and be little appreciated if it doesn‘t meet with the functionality requirements of its users. For example, barn doors on a small master bath may be just the thing to maximize space in both the bathroom and the bedroom.
Freestanding tubs are generally considered to look modern and are usually defined by smooth lines and stylish curves. A typical freestanding tub is around 60” long and 30” wide with water depth of 19”. Smaller versions are available too and they measure 55” in length, 27” in width with 15” water depth while large freestanding tubs are generally 72” long and 32” wide with 20” water depth. Freestanding tubs often require larger bathrooms and oval tubs, although they may look larger in general are only slightly wider than rectangular tubs and just as long and deep.
