Water supply to new bathroom


Still working on the basement. I'm thinking now about adding water to the new bathroom given that I now have a way to drain it out. I will be tying into 3/4 inch lines about 10 feet from the new bath. My thoughts are to keep 3/4 around the bathroom and reduce to 1/2 inch as I take off to each valve. Is this the best plan? I wondered if I used 1/2 inch all the way I would have less volume to the lav, WC and tub/shower. I'm not clear on what effect pipe sizing has on pressure at the delivery points. Thanks

If your water pressure is good, you can prolly pipe the last 2 fixtures on 1/2". If using copper, be sure to reem your pipe and regardless of the type of pipe, be conservative with the fittings and anchor the pipes well
