Please help decide bathroom layout!


Hi everyone,

I need help decising how to layout my new bathroom. I am planning to redo it all. It is a small bathroom of 93" by 81" total. One wall (81" wall) has a 30" door close to the corner and the adjacent 93" wall has a small 22" window. As I said, it is a small room and I would like to make good use of all the space. Is there anyplace where I can get practical layout ideas or can someone provide help with the design?. I am undecided if I want to use a shower or tub it all depends on space.

Unless you are ready to spend a lot of money on replumbing, you are pretty much locked into the layout you have.

Bathroom aren't like family rooms where you can move things any place you want. Bathrooms are limited to where the pipes are laid and how the joists are run.
You would need to tell us how the joists run in the room.

What's wrong with it?

I don't think you will come up with a better layout without moving walls. As Bill and Ron have said, changing it just to change it will be a difficult and expensive project. If I had a nice neutral tile job like that with no leaking or plumbing issues I would consider myself lucky!

I'd think twice before tearing it out. At least do some serious research on what it will cost to replace it before you start the demo.

In your shoes, I'd spend the money on paint, a new vanity with fancy countertop, lighting and cool mirror, then call it done.

Agree with the guys. Could aka WILL BE! expensive. And time consuming.

However I do see one possibility IF the joists are running the right way and IF there would be enough room you could turn your toilet to sit against the right side wall(going by #1pic)

I've attached a pic of my first bathroom reno where I had enough room beside the toilet to put in a full vanity to fill the wall space. Basically having enough room to open the doors on the vanity. Space was key in this reno as I didn't have a linen closet so every inch helped!

Where your vanity is set to go right now I vision that whole wall as a vanity, possibly double sinks with a huge mirror and the toilet facing the window not the shower... You know enjoy the view from the throne lol

Again all of this depends on plumbing and joists.
