I missed the measurement on the toilet size. I found a compact Kohler on Home Depot's website but it looks like 27 3/4". I don't know if there is anything out there smaller than that or not.

Re: Distance from toilet to freestanding tub


Guys I'll draw a proper diagram with graph paper and post later today. Don't struggle reading my chicken scratch doodling.

Distance from toilet to freestanding tub


Ok here's a diagram with the shower across from the toilet. The distance from toilet to shower is now 32 1/2".

6" more spacing for the crapper from what I had initially.

The spacing between the tub and shower glass is tight. At its tightest the gap will be 1 3/8" and grow larger from thereZ. Ideally I'd like a smaller tub but it's been hard to find.

Still too cramped?

I wouldn't skimp on the toilet in a premium condo. I'd stick with the oval and deal with the spacing another way. Since this isn't technically a master bath, but a shared main bathroom, I still fail to see the practicality of the double bowl.

This is my first diy project so my perspective isn't that good.

Thanks

To me the whole space looks cramped, kinda like a subway car. But when drawn up to scale may be a little better.

I would recommend working with a designer that can lay everything out and allow 3D viewing. The box stores don't charge for the service, but they will spec their products.

The most space near the door opening is most convenient and the lower height tub as opposed to the shower across from the vanity would be much better in my opinion by giving more upper body room.

I see nothing wrong with the space between the shower and toilet. Be certain the toilets you are considering have the correct dimension for your rough in distance ( 10" or 12" ) possibly or other.


Excellent point about the upper body room near the vanity. I hadn't considered that.

Re: Distance from toilet to freestanding tub


Your layout is fine.

I would use an elongated bowl.
28" is code here.

Almost 4' between the tub and vanity. Why is everyone seeing this as cramped?

Excellent, and be certain the door is wide nuff for wheel chair access. Seems like 28" is minimum. Far too many have 24 doors.

Re: Distance from toilet to freestanding tub


It does look better on the graph paper. When I made my comments I was going off the hand sketch on post 15

Distance from toilet to freestanding tub


I'm going to leave 4 inches from the wall and the freestanding tub. Sound about right?

That way someone can clean behind it or retrieve dropped items. You'd have to climb into it to clean behind.

I like the idea of being able to clean. Kind of important.
4" sounds good. That way you can tell the wife to grab stuff because your arm won't fit.

Re: Distance from toilet to freestanding tub


What's the width of the toilet area? From wall to vanity top overhang? Also from toilet center line to each?

Re: Distance from toilet to freestanding tub


It looks to me each square is 6" on the graph paper.

Toilet area is 35".

Toilet center line to wall and vanity ideally would be 17.5".

Now that you've got me thinking about it I'm not 100% sure that's the case. because of the existing rough in But it'll be pretty close.
