Bathroom Layout Tip 3: Provide sufficient space. When you consider the heavy demands of a small bathroom, it might be tempting to try to squeeze more than what`s wise into the hard-working space. But more features in less space doesn`t actually translate into a better bathroom layout. In fact, the opposite is true. For example, toilets need 30” of space. The smallest shower size allowed is 30”x30”. The center of a sink should be 20” away from the wall. Generally speaking, double sinks do best with 36” between them. If you simply don't have the space, realistically, for all the things, it's time to reevaluate the functionality and eliminate the components you don't absolutely need.
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.
Although double sink bathroom setups often look symmetrical, that’s not always the case. The two washbasins on this vanity, for example, occupy the left side of the unit while the rest of the counter remains open. Each sink has an oval mirror and a hanging pendant lamp above it so there is a bit of symmetry here after all. A single large mirror can be shared and can serve as an element that unifies the bathroom. The double sink vanity has the opposite effect, dividing the bathroom and sharing it between two matching sides. If you like the idea, learn how to install a bathroom mirror and you can reinvent your bathroom in no time. There are two main ways in which you can plan a bathroom for two. You can either combine two sinks into a single vanity with a long, shared counter or you can opt for two smaller but separate vanities, each with its own sink, counter and mirror.
