The Ideal Layout for Small Bathrooms
Move heavy fixtures to one side of the room
Arrange your bathroom pieces on one side so that you have the other side for movement. The wider fixtures like the bathtub would be at the end of the room. By aligning these pieces, you create an unobstructed pathway, where you can walk straight to the end of the room. This helps minimize small unusable gaps in the small bathroom layout that are created by scattering the fixtures.
Allow more space by the entryway
The sink is likely the smallest major piece in the bathroom, which is why it is ideal to place it close to the entryway. Another reason to place it before other fixtures are so that guests do not have to go across the room to wash hands or freshen up. One of the underrated bathroom layout ideas is to use a pocket door, which does not require too much clearance space.
Keep a shower area instead of a bathtub
It is a given that small bathrooms might not be able to accommodate large fixtures. If you are up for it, you can forget the idea of putting a tub in your small bathroom space and put a shower area in its place. Since the floor of a shower area is lower than a tub’s, the continuity of the bathroom flooring will make the room much bigger.
Use glass for shower doors and partitions.
The goal is to create a bigger space and make it seem so. It means you need to make sure every part of the room is viewable. Glass and other transparent materials can be used for partition for the shower room or area. Glass is reflective, so it can help brighten the room better and make it feel more airy and warm.
