Small Bathroom Floor Plans

Small bathroom floor plans can work if it properly planned and if you know how to make the most of the space

You may face the choice between a bathtub or a shower, or choose instead to install a wet room.

Planning:

Plan on retaining existing drainage,if at all possible. That includes the water and waste requirements.Check with the expert that existin plumbing will not limit your choice of new fittings.

Hanging the toilet and basing from a wall cuts down on visual clutter. It also cuts down on cleaning since neither the toilet nor the washstand sits on the floor.Choose light colors for walls, to maximize the sense of space.The big positive of a small bathroom is that a little goes a long way, so designer tiles may be within budget.

If you want a bathtub, consider replacing the existing one with a shorter model to free up space.Or choose a leakproof fiberglass one-piece walk-in shower. Most of the shelf models have trays that are 48in wide, so will fit in small place.




Option 1: with bathtub

A conventional bathtub can be made to fit into even a small bathroom.In a small bathroom you will have to sit it along one of the walls.

Allow clearance on either side of the washstand. A vanity or cupboard beneath is a good storage solution.

Leave enough space around the toilet, so you do not feel confined.




Option 2: with shower stall

A shower stall can be installed to take up less space that a standard bathtub.

If the washstand and toilet are on the same wall - ensure that there is adequate clearance between the two.
