Hi there! I went searching for a bathroom layout idea and came across so many. I love looking at how people have configured their bathroom and I always look straight for the toilet. I hate seeing the toilet as the first thing.
When deciding on a bathroom layout, it’s important you use every single centimetre and really think about the size of the fixtures you buy ie. the size of the bath, the toilet and the vanity.
If you have a large space, then a separate toilet will be better. If not, then making sure it’s in a space away from first view is important. Solid walls generally make the room feel closed in, so the position of fixtures (if everything must go in the one room) will be important.
Think about how many people will be using the bathroom. Do you need one or two sinks? If you decide on two, is there enough room of multiple people to be standing at the sinks at the same time?
A freestanding tub or drop in tub? This will be an aesthetic choice, but the practicality (for cleaning purposes) may make you lean towards the drop in.
If you are starting your bathroom from scratch, then you’re lucky! If you’re doing a reno, then you’ll really need to get some cost ideas on moving any plumbing around. For example, switching a toilet and sink around could cost you in excess of $1000 before you even choose your fixtures.
Have you recently renovated a bathroom? Or are you currently deciding on a layout. I’d love to know!
