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.
Showerbaths are a great practical way of optimizing the space so that you have the comfort of both bathing and showering. Walk-in showers are also very popular in the modern bathroom and if buying a shower enclosure for the modern bathroom choose one with a chrome structure over white.
Creating a floor plan to scale with just the walls doors and any windows shown and then placing different fixtures that have been scaled appropriately in various locations is a big help in finding the perfect design to fit your needs in the space allowed and can even be a lot of fun.
