What is are good dimensions for a bathroom in the basement? would love to have it as complete as possible with a shower and such.... right now they current one is 6x6ft which is big enough for a small vanity and a toilet..... but want to add a shower to make it more usable.... any ideas on what you've seen or what would be a good size to expand it to?
5' x 7' is normally considered the minimum size for a bathroom. This allows 30" for tub/shower, 24" for vanity, and 30" for toilet = 84" along the 7' wall, with the entry door swinging away from the fixtures toward the opposite wall.
The vanity can be a less in width (like 20") to allow for more clearance for the other fixtures. Also, you can rearrange the fixtures on different walls in the bathroom. NKBA has some more generous guidelines: http://www.margielittle.com/docs/bathroom.htm

As always, your local codes apply.
