Designing the bathroom layout

The bathroom space will serve different purposes in different households. Some people may want to create a luxurious spa like bathroom that will help to unwind and destress, while others may want a family bathroom that is practical and has plenty of space for people to share. Others way prefer an accessible bathroom or wetroom space that will meet all of their requirements. However, whichever bathroom design you are hoping to create, the bathroom layout will be essential for creating the right results. So what should you consider when designing the bathroom layout, to be sure to achieve the right results?

What are the important considerations when designing the bathroom layout?

To create the perfect bathroom for your requirements, the layout is an important design consideration. This impacts on the practicality of the space, as well as the visual design. So what should you bear in mind when considering the bathroom layout? Well, there are a number of aspects to consider, including:

  • The size of the space- for smaller bathroom spaces the layout is often defined by the shape of the space, with the sink, toilet and bath/shower being installed in what is often the only suitable or appropriate space. For larger bathrooms, the size of the space allows more freedom for layout, so you can create the precise design you need.
  • The amount of storage- storage options in a bathroom can be very practical and improve the day to day usage of your bathroom space. Adding storage cabinets or cupboards can be a good idea, and you should consider this as part of your bathroom layout. For some bathrooms, fitted bathroom furniture can be a great option.
  • The important bathroom fixtures- the sink, toilet and the bath or shower are the most important bathroom fixtures, for bathroom spaces of any size or shape. As a result, you should focus on planning a layout and floorplan that contains all of these fixtures, in a sensible, practical design, with enough space between.
