Popular Bathroom Layouts Based on your budget, you first should decide how many “wet walls” (walls that contain plumbing pipes) you need and can afford. Fewer wet walls mean lower plumbing costs, even if you can connect to plumbing lines in adjacent rooms. A one-wall bath layout is efficient but limits your design choices. A layout with plumbing in two walls involves more work but provides more floor area and storage space around the sink. Three-wall layouts offer the most design flexibility, but that comes at a cost. Let these six sample bath layouts inspire you and help you plan your project. You might also want to keep a notebook or file of space-smart baths that you see in magazines. That way, you can show your plumber or contractor exactly what you’re thinking about doing.

As you consider the layout of your bathroom, take advantage of every square inch. Tabulate configurations for plumbing fixtures and cabinets. Be sure the tub you choose is the right size for the space—a common mistake. Decide whether you want a tub in your master bath, or if you’d rather give that square footage to the shower and enhance that bathing area with soothing body sprays.

Space planning all depends on your lifestyle and the way you use the space. However, keep in mind when planning that if you must move the plumbing to accommodate your new design, the price tag of your project will be much higher than if the “guts” of your bathroom can stay put. That said, layout options are more limited when relying on existing plumbing hookups, drains, ventilation, etc.

Your initial bathroom design should focus on making the best use of the space available. Then consider which utilities would need rerouting for the new design. Decide whether you are going to tile the walls, change the floor surface, or update heating and ventilation. You can then construct an order of work. If you are replacing the whole bathroom, remove all the old fixtures and reroute the plumbing and wiring before installing the new bathroom. If there is little rerouting required, you may prefer to replace each item in turn.

The toilet can dictate the design of the bathroom, depending on where it is. But, although it’s the primary reason you go to the bathroom, you don’t want it to be the design focal point of the space. In this bathroom designed by Andreas Charalambous, the toilet compartment echoes the shape and style of the shower, but features a sandblasted door for privacy.
