4 Bathroom Layout Tips for Comfort & Convenience, St. Peters, Missouri

When it comes to comfortable, clean living, the bathroom is one of the most important rooms in your home. Because this is a very functional space, it’s important to keep that in mind when designing the layout. If you’re considering a bathroom remodel or are constructing a new home, follow the principles below to create a bathroom that’s comfortable and easy to use.

How to Plan Your Bathroom

1. Storage Space

One feature every bathroom needs is storage space. Towels, toilet paper, cleaning supplies, and bath and beauty products all need somewhere to go. Factor cabinets and shelves into your original design, instead of trying to add them in later.

2. Open Areas

The other feature which will take up the most space in the floor plan is the simple, open space you need to move and turn around. Be generous with these dimensions, particularly if anyone in your home uses a walker or wheelchair, or if anyone will need to use one in the future.

3. Counter Space

BathroomThe number of sinks you should have will depend on how you use the bathroom. For example, if you’re married, two sinks will likely be ideal. If not, you’ll probably prefer extra counter space instead—this way, you’ll have places to set toothbrushes, makeup, skin cleansers, and other items.

4. Tub or Shower

The same logic applies to the decision between a bathtub or shower. If you rarely take baths, opt for just a shower. Conversely, a tub will be better if you rarely bathe standing up. If anyone in the home has mobility issues, include space in your layout for a walk-in tub.
