Sample Bathroom Floor Plans

Looking at sample bathroom floor plans is the first step to designing your new bathroom.


It sounds like a difficult task to create floor plans on your own, but in actuality, you don't need to be a professional to do this, and some people enjoy designing them.

Here are some tips to help you decide which of these sample bathroom floor plans is right for you:

1) Decide what type of fixtures you need and want in your bathroom. Many of the fixtures range in size, performance and capabilities. For example, if your bathroom is going to be big, you may prefer a larger bath or hot tub; if it's going to be in a smaller area, you may need just a shower.

2) Measure and sketch out your bathroom floor plan on graph paper, keeping the size to scale. Make sure to include all piping, vents and outlets in the sketch. For bathroom windows, make sure they stay above shoulder height.

Different Sample Bathroom Floor Plans

There are the three types of bathroom floor plans: Rectangles, squares, and floor plans for odd-shaped rooms. Whether you're building a new house or not, remember that any non-structural wall can be knocked down or expanded to change the shape of the bathroom.

1) Rectangular

The rectangular bathroom is typically a smaller bathroom that will require smaller fixtures. Here is an example of a small rectangular bathroom that has only a toilet, sink and a shower.

Sometimes these bathrooms won't allow for a bathtub and require a shower placed at the end of the room, so it doesn't block the room off. For design purposes, it usually looks better to have the shower on one side with the toilet and sink on the opposite wall. Make sure the fixtures have at least a six-inch gap between them, so they aren't crowded.

Decorating small bathrooms can be difficult; you just have to be creative!

2) Square

The square design gives more room and allows for more creativity when placing the fixtures. It also usually allows for more extravagant tubs and sinks, too. These pictures show that you can mix and match where you want to put everything. Here is a square bathroom viewed from the ceiling:

This layout has a corner shower with the sink opposite the toilet, and it also has two doors. It also shows plenty of room for the sink, meaning you could embellish the size or add a second sink to the bathroom if you wanted.

3) Odd-shaped rooms

This can be one of the more difficult bathrooms to configure. It's usually being imposed on by another room, which creates a specific area where fixtures have to go. It leaves little wiggle room to play with.

Similarly to a tight, rectangular room, the fixtures need to be spaced apart by at least six inches. This plan has the bathtub and shower opposite the door and the bathtub is just small enough to fit in this plan. A commode is placed in the corner between the toilet and the bathtub, filling in space and not leaving an awkward empty area. Keep in mind that you can always knock down a wall to create a larger bathroom - if the wall isn't structural. You'll have to consult an architect or someone in the home construction or design industries for that.

These three sample bathroom floor plans provide ideas to design your bathrooms, whether you're building a house and creating any sized bathroom you want, or you are redesigning a bathroom and must adhere to certain size restrictions. Remember the spacing techniques and placement of the different fixtures in these models when you're designing your own floor plans.
