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.
Some types of tubs are better for cleaning while others are better suited for de-stressing, relaxation and meditation. Of course, that‘s not the only detail that can help you determine the size and shape of tub that you need. For example, if you have a large and spacious bathroom, chances are that the standard tub size won‘t really satisfy the design. Some tub can be just a little deeper than the standard kind and this makes them similar to Japanese soaking tubs which are taller and shorter than usual. Some modern freestanding tubs are hybrids between these two types.
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”.
