Whether you wish to construct a new house or update an existing one, it’s crucial to get the layout right. Have a look on what to consider when planning your bathroom layout.
Ideal bathroom layout puts beautiful items on show
If it comes to the placement of the bathtub, vanity, shower and toilet pan, ask yourself what area you see first when entering the space. Here, you wish to place something beautiful that gives an instant wow effect, such as the vanity or a freestanding bathtub.
Wall hung vanity
Imagine a wall mounted vanity with a stone benchtop and a basin on top. You can hardly go wrong with this classic combination. Standard vanity widths are 900, 1000 and 1200mm incorporating a single bowl, and 1500, 1600 and 1800mm for double bowls.
Disguised toilet pan in bathroom layout
Once you decided upon the beautiful item to put on show, we turn ourselves to the toilet pan. If you can’t or don’t want to have the toilet in a separate cubicle, where should we place it? Ideally it is disguised as much as possible, for instance behind the door. Not only because toilets are not meant to wow, but also to avoid compromising situations when a second person might enter the room.
Walk-in shower with single glass panel
Now think about the shower placement. Walk-in-showers with a simple glass screen and no door are state of the art. But unless you wish to dry the floor after every shower session, I’d recommend selecting a glass panel of at least 1.4 metres in width. This way the water splashes onto the screen and not onto the bathroom floor.
Place towel racks
Once you have found your ideal bathroom layout, find a good place for your (heated) towel rack and the toilet roll holder.
