Certain rooms only work in certain houses so if you're living in a modern high rise apartment the traditional bathroom isn't going to work for you. If you have an old cottage or villa retreat this style of bathroom is one you should definitely consider.
A full sized standard tub or combination shower and tub measures 32 inches by 60 inches. A standard toilet is 20 inches by 25 inches and the vanity is usually 19 inches deep and space will determine the width of the sink vanity. There are many small bathroom floor plans that easily incorporate these fixtures in a bathroom as small as 5 feet by 8 feet. Of course a larger area naturally provides more options. An additional 2 feet of space will allow for a very useful linen closet perhaps placed at the end of the tub. However storage can be taken into account to include spacious medicine cabinets and narrow depth cabinets for the wall above the toilet. Lighting and ventilation must also be looked at ahead and if a window does not already exist fluorescent lighting is available in abundant styles some with ventilation fans incorporated into the design.
Over the past decade with the popularity of TV shows like Changing Rooms the trend for old-fashioned bathrooms has seen a real upsurge. A rare gem of an old slipper bath or rusty traditional faucet may be found at a scrap yard or in a skip but thankfully manufacturers are keeping up with demand with skillfully crafted traditional bathroom products.
