Toilet and Bath Floor Plan

By KBC Kitchen & Bathroom

Toilet and Bath Floor Plan

The kind of fixtures you buy for a bath remodeling will depend on how much you have to spend, and on how large a room you are planning to remodel. Cost of bathroom fixtures varies with size, style, fittings, and materials used. Regarding bathroom layouts, be sure to allow at least one and half feet between the front of the sink and the front of the toilet. There should be two feet between the front of any fixture and the wall across from it. Minimum bathroom floor area needed for a person cleaning the tub is 30 inches (along the side of the tub) by 20 inches.

At the side of the fixtures allow at least two inches between toilet tank and sink or vanity and three inches between toilet and bathtub and four inches between toilet and the wall at the side of it. The best bathroom floor plans will locate the toilet so the large waste pipe goes between and parallel to the floor joists rather than cutting through them. This saves cutting the joists and may save costly floor framing. You can also save on the cost of piping by placing all the fixtures along one wall in new bath remodel. It is best to allow six inches between sink vanity and the wall. Allow more than the minimum of space if you can. Leave room for storage cabinets and towel bars. Rearrange your design until you have the fixtures in the best possible layout.

A Bungalow Bath Remodel

By KBC Kitchen & Bathroom

Forty-five minutes into what what supposed to be a simple bathroom makeover, Fine Homebuilding reader and Breaktime poster, Paul Waterloo realized a total gut job was called for. He and his fiancée decided to use the opportunity to create their dream bathroom. View photos of the remodel’s milestones and read A Decisive Bathroom Remodel for Paul’s first-hand account of the project.

Improving functionality. Before the remodel, the existing bathroom had a poor layout. You had to step around the toilet to go anywhere, and the light switch for the single circuit was located 5 ft. inside the room. The radiator took up valuable floor space, and the glass-block window allowed no ventilation in the summer and would not seal during the winter.

Unexpected suprises. Once I started taking up the floor tile, I realized the cementboard underlayment was coming up with it and would have to be removed. Then I discovered there were multiple layers of flooring under the cementboard, including the original 1×6 subfloor, tongue-and-groove finish flooring, and a layer of linoleum.

Purchase a Taller Toilet

Purchase a Taller Toilet

 

Most toilets range from 14 to 15 inches tall. Outfit your bathroom with a taller model, such as this 16-inch model, to make it easier for people with limited mobility to take a seat.

His-and-Her Bath

By Bathroom Designer

His-and-Her Bath

The use of continuing horizontal lines, a large, frameless mirror, and well-placed task lighting helps to create the illusion of a larger space. The marble-clad dividing wall lends modesty to the toilet area, while creating a recessed storage opportunity. A must in every small bath, the shower has a curbless entry to eliminate demarcation of the limited footprint.

Bathrooms With Washbasins Below Windows

By KBC Kitchen & Bathroom

Even though it is very popular to put a sink below the window on a kitchen, the same layout in a bathroom isn’t popular at all. We gathered for you some examples of such layout to prove that it is really great. Of course it’s a matter of taste but we all know that natural light is great for your skin so it’s a great idea to put a washbasin and a mirror close to windows in bathrooms.  Windows are a great addition to the bathroom.  Having the right contractor like Houston roofing install the windows can really make all the difference.

All-in-One Super-Sleek Bathroom Set

By KBC Kitchen & Bathroom

all-in-one-toilet-sink-combo

Space-saving combination fixtures are in vogue, but few go as far as this one. This stylish space-age combo fixture folds out to reveal a toilet, sink, shelf and mirror, all in one object and fanning out from the center like features of the ultimate giant-sized multi-tool knife.

Definitely designed (by Dang Jingwei) with small bathrooms in mind, one of the neatest features is the built-in water-saving system that reuses tap water (used to wash your hands or brush your teeth) as toilet water with the push of a button. Read more »
