The layout of your bathroom can be very useful or very trying. If you are working with a small bathroom, organization of the layout is key to useful space in your bathroom. One of the best ways to figure out how to do the layout so that it will be useful is to picture in your mind how much free space you will have once you install the plumbing like the sink, toilet and tub or shower.
In smaller bathrooms, the layout is critical to having space to move about while you are in the room. For example, you would not what the toilet and sink to be on the opposite walls in line with each other and barely have room to walk through the area. Generally, placing all of the plumbed items on one wall will allow more room for movement through the bathroom.
For example, having the sink in one corner next to the toilet and then the shower in the far corner will leave one entire wall open. If your bathroom is not large enough to accommodate this layout, perhaps having the sink directly next to the shower will be useful and having the toilet in a corner will utilize space as you can. With the smaller area, it is also important to remember that storage units such as cabinets for towels and other things along those lines may not be useful. So when planning it is also important to plan where to keep items such as towels, soaps and shampoos if the space is not going to allow room.
Small bathrooms require much planning to provide adequate space for a person to utilize. It may be necessary to use just a shower in a little area instead of a full sized bath tub, which will conserve quite a bit of space. It fully depends on the user’s wants and needs, but to utilize maximum space in a smaller area is important to the efficiency of the area.
Hanging towel racks, in shower shelves for shampoos and soaps and small vanities will use less space than the full sized storage areas and may help to utilize space in smaller bathrooms. The layout of the room is important because of the plumbing for the sinks, toilets and showers. It is not easy to rearrange a room with plumbing because it generally will mean moving the plumbing and in some cases creating new holes in the wall and floor to accommodate the plumbing.
