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.
Modern bathrooms are all about what you do with the space you have. Within many bathrooms there is little room to work with so making the most of the space is essential. This is why fitted bathroom suites are now so popular. Having bathroom furniture made to measure is one of the most practical design solutions when remodeling the bathroom.
The bathroom has come along way in the past one hundred years. Once just a basic tub set in front of the living room fire and filled with buckets of water the bathing experience is now a luxury in almost every western home. Back then a "bathroom" was something only the wealthy and privileged could afford to have in their house. It was this trend which lead to the mass production of bathroom products.
