Average Size Bathroom

Every house will have different bathroom dimensions accordingly to a certain house plan. There are no restrictions and only creativity of a designer, architect or homeowner will determine what measurements of rooms will be practical and suitable while designing the whole house. Typically three bathroom types are defined: half bathroom, 3/4 bathroom and full size bathroom. Each option might be characterized by its minimum required dimensions for proper fitting of all fixtures, while maximum sizes won’t have any certain limits. 1/2 bathroom, also known as a powder room, with very often single sink vanity and standard toilet is the smallest option. Containing two bathroom plumbing fixtures is definitely not a factor of a size determination, but a whole meaning of such room is compact with no shower or bathtub. 1/2 bath usually has to be at least 3 x 6 feet with 24” – 28” wide pocked door in the middle of one of the longest wall. Such tiny powder room typically suitable for a smaller 18” – 21” in width vanity or pedestal sink on one side and toilet on the other. Some 1/2 bathrooms might be bigger, but usually does not exceed 7 feet in length otherwise the space won’t be used rationally and remained as open wasted area. 3/4 bathroom has vanity, toilet and a shower. About 35 square feet will be sufficient for accommodation of compact to medium vanity, up to a 42” x 42” shower and toilet. Installing spacious shower and bigger double sink vanity will consume more space and the whole bathroom has to be extended to adequate dimensions allowing a proper fitting of all desire fixtures. Average 3/4 bathroom is about 6’ x 6’, but larger sizes might be a good option for convenience. Full size bathroom with separate 36 x 36 inches shower, standard 5 feet wall to wall bathtub, 60”W x 21”D x 36”H vanity and regular toilet has to be at least 50 ft² big. Shower / bathtub combination typically require less space. In addition, it is very popular option for many condominiums or smaller single family houses. Even though, there are no separations and practically you are taking a shower inside the bathtub it still counts as a full bathroom. Very often 6’ x 6’ room will be a perfect for a standard tub/shower combo, medium vanity and toilet with no space wasted. Ideal bathroom size How big the bathroom should be will mainly depend on family requirements and practical use. On average a 1,900 – 2,100 square feet three bedroom house will have 2 full and 1 half bathrooms. Master bedroom will typically have a large bathroom which might be as big as 120 ft² and have a spacious hot tub along with a roomy shower. Second full size bathroom with a tub/shower combination and actual dimensions 7’ x 5’ will be a perfect option for sharing in between family members who occupy other two bedrooms. Compact powder room close to kitchen and dining room might be very thoughtful to plan for convenience while preparing a food or inviting friends for a dinner.

With these tips learn how to make the most of your bath, no matter how big or small. By Megan Boettcher Facebook Pinterest Twitter Google Plus Email Print More Oops, we’re sorry.

Share your take on this idea!Upload your photo here.CLOSE Small Bath Floor Plan One of the most common bath layouts is a 9×5-foot space with a vanity, toilet, and tub-shower combo lined up next to one another. This narrow floor plan is an efficient option for a small space. It also helps reduce construction costs because all of the plumbing fixtures are contained within one wall. To personalize your space, consider a furniture-style vanity or contemporary floating vanity instead of an off-the-shelf cabinet. Opt for a console-style sink with open floor space below to make the room feel bigger. Another space-expanding tip is to replace the tub-shower combo with a large shower. Without a tub to stop your eye, the space feels larger. If you have a tub in another bathroom, gaining a plus-size shower in a master bath can increase the perceived value of a master bedroom suite. continue reading below Medium-size Bath Floor Plan A second common floor plan places plumbing fixtures on two walls with the vanity and toilet on one side of the room and the tub or shower on the opposite wall. This configuration typically offers more vanity size and style options. Including two sinks (or a double vanity) is a nice benefit for a shared master bath. Choosing a bigger vanity offers more countertop space and storage below. If you prefer to have a separate tub and shower, put them side by side to reduce running additional plumbing lines to each area. If you crave additional storage, opt for a large walk-in shower or a shower-tub combo and outfit the rest of the wall with a tall linen closet. Large Bath Floor Plan For a more luxurious bath experience, spread out your main bath fixtures in a 10×12-foot space (or larger). Place the bathtub under a window for a pretty focal point. Double vanities are a favorite feature in master bathrooms, allowing each person their own area. Dedicate space on a third wall for a walk-in shower. A glass shower door will make the bathroom feel open. If you prefer more privacy, a frosted door in a tiled shower is cozy and stylish. Closing off a small compartment for the toilet is a nice feature and provides extra privacy, while maintaining the decorative appeal of the space. Dream Bath Floor Plan For the ultimate bath, incorporate architectural elements, such as bay windows, to serve as a dramatic backdrop to a freestanding bathtub. Place vanities on opposite walls to give everyone their own space without bumping elbows. If you have a long wall for a spacious vanity, consider lowering a 24-inch section of the countertop to create a dedicated makeup station. Leave space below the countertop open to store a stool or chair so you can sit while grooming. A walk-in shower with a space for drying off keeps water contained in one area and reduces wet floors throughout the rest of the bath. A separate toilet area improves privacy and offers an out-of-the-way spot to store bathroom essentials.

Average Size Bathroom

The inventory of older homes throughout the United States skews the ability to determine a definitive average bathroom size. U.S. home sizes have doubled since the 1950s, and while there are set minimums for each type of bathroom, newer homes tend to exceed these numbers, while older homes come in on the small side. Reviewing a range of averages, as well as understanding the minimum space for each kind of bathroom, creates a clear picture of the size and layout of different types, from the smallest powder room to the most palatial master bath.

Another common size you can find in small bathrooms is 6’ x 6’. Although this square floor plan meets the minimum requirement of a full bathroom, I’d recommend using it as a third-quarter bathroom. Here are a few reasons. A bathtub will take up too much space in your tiny bathroom, not to mention its bulky look will make your bathroom feel even more cramped. On the contrary, a third-quarter bathroom only comes with a sink, toilet and shower, helping declutter your tiny space.
