A very functional design can be incorporated for bathrooms as small as 5' X 8' in dimension. Sacrificing a large closet or partitioning off a small area of a larger room will provide the area needed. The first tip should be taking into account the location of electrical outlets and water sources. If these vital utilities do not already exist the key components of the room which are the toilet sink and tub or shower should be roughly sketched into the floor plan to allow proper placement of these utilities. The second factor will be the entrance door placement as this will determine the layout of the bathroom. If the door is located in the center of the room the toilet and sink will usually be placed on one side of the room with the tub or shower on the other side.
Quite often with the hectic lifestyles of most families more than one bathroom is necessary to prevent irritation and stress when both husband and wife and perhaps even children need to get ready to leave the home at the same time. Adding a half bath helps but with careful planning the same space allocated for a half bath can be utilized for a second small bathroom. This permits more than one family member to bathe at the same time while a half bath is limited in function. Taking the time to develop a small bathroom floor plan is key to producing a satisfying and useful design. Floor plans do not have to be elaborate undertakings as a simple sketch that includes certain points will suffice.
The country style bathroom is perhaps the easiest type of design to create and like the traditional bathroom only really works well within the right house. The classic country look is best associated with floral wallpaper high beams basin frills and a bath canopy. Following the traditional design cast iron baths and deep ridged sanitary ware are what gives the country bathroom its nostalgic look.
