How To Create A Great Bathroom Floor Plan

When you decide to update or completely renovate your bathroom, because of everything that is involved in such a big job – despite the size of most bathrooms – you need to be clear from the beginning what you want and how you want to go about it.  It is for this reason that one of the most important parts of your plans has to be a carefully devised and created floor plan of your bathroom.

It really should go without saying that one of the most important factors you have to take on board when creating your floor plan is the amount of available space you have to work with.  It could be that you are moving your bathroom,, extending it or just working with the area you already have.  Whatever you intend to do, it I always best to have a detailed visualisation on paper of what you have and what you want.


To begin with you need to measure the room and make nots of where all the electric wires, water pipes and waste pipes are in the room.  You will probably find it useful to draw your floor plan onto graph paper, and  the to-scale drawing should include the location of all the permanent things such as doors, fixtures, fittings and windows.  You can also find a bathroom floor plan on some websites online.  All you have to do is enter the lengths and widths of your bathroom, with other details such as the doors and windows and it will build a scaled plan for you.

Think About Correcting Issue Before The Redesigning

Now, the first thing on your agenda is probably re-designing everything to get your bathroom looking the way you want it to.  However, before go through the redesigns you need to consider the problems that already exist in your bathroom layout and design and how you can fix them.  For instance – Do you want to add a shower to the bathroom, if you don;t already have one?, Does it currently have enough storage space?  Only after you find the answers to these questions/problems can you then move on to working out where you want to position the new fixings.

Pay Close Attention To Where You Put The Toilet

A vitally important consideration to make it where you are going to install the toilet.  Ideally it will not be in front of the bathroom door.  It is also important to remember to keep the wet area of your bathroom away from the dry area.
