Popular Bathroom Layouts and How to Choose the Best One for Your Home

It’s true that most modern bathrooms are equipped with a bathtub and/or shower, toilet, and sink. But the way in which you arrange these fixtures in the room and create a design aesthetic around them can vary tremendously. In this article, we’re highlighting a few of the most popular bathroom layouts and the types of bathrooms that they work best in. We’ll also provide a list of questions to ask yourself before choosing bathroom floor plans and cover the best options for a small bathroom layout as well.

Questions to Ask Before Choosing a Bathroom Layout

The best bathroom layout for your particular space depends largely on who will be using it and how much it will be used. Here are some questions to ask yourself as you’re browsing bathroom floor plans and thinking about which one will work best in your home.

  • • What is the role of the bathroom – master bathroom, kids’ bathroom, guest bathroom?
  • • Who will be using the bathroom – a couple, elderly adults, kids, guests?
  • • What items need to be stored in the bathroom – extra towels, toiletries, cleaning products?
  • • How often will this bathroom be used – daily, monthly, rarely?
  • • How accessible does this bathroom need to be for residents and guests?

Bathroom Layouts with Tub and Shower

Many homeowners look for bathroom layouts with tub and shower options to accommodate current and future needs. Keep in mind that your bathroom will need to have adequate square footage to fit the tub, but popular designs with this feature often allow space for a large vanity and even two sinks. You can also manage to "hide" the toilet from the line of sight upon entering the bathroom by incorporating a half-wall or storage closet with this type of design.

The Three-Quarters Style Bathroom Layout

If you’re looking to stay within a tight budget for your bathroom remodeling project, then consider the three-quarters layout. This bathroom layout involves placing your bathtub, toilet, and sink all on one wall. This style helps you save on plumbing costs for labor and supplies since all of the plumbing is along one wall.

The Best Small Bathroom Layout

But if space is a major concern, you’ll likely want to choose a small bathroom layout that includes a shower but no tub. A half-wall can still provide a bit of separation between the zones of your bathroom with this design. Great small bathroom layout designs include placing three main fixtures (shower, toilet, sink) on one wall, placing one in each of three corners of the room, or placing a sink and tub directly next to each other.

Bathroom Layouts That Maximize Storage

Many homeowners don’t think of the bathroom when they need extra storage space in the house, but this can be a great area for storage if you have a large bathroom that is only used occasionally. For spare linens, towels, bath products, household cleaning supplies, and utility room items, you can make use of long vanities and floor-to-ceiling closets if your bathroom has ample space. Double sinks provide extra storage space below them as well.
