Design your bathroom layout

DO IT YOURSELF

Before, determing your bathroom's layout you should ensure that both all fixtures will fit in the plan and that it will remain enough free space around them. First and foremost you should measure the dimensions of your bathroom. Then you should draw a draft sketch of the floorplan. On this particular sketch you can experiment with alternative arrangments of bath fixtures and furniture.

How to draw the floorplan of your bathroom?

Step 1: Measure the dimensions of your bathroom, so you can draw a draft sketch of the floorplan. Then measure and add in your sketch:

  • The door.
  • Any windows that probably are in the room.
  • Any obstacles (for example a column).
  • The radiator.
  • The water and waste points.
Step 2: Draw on a graph paper the outline of the floor plan based on your previous measurements. You can also print the following sheet of a graph paper already divided in meters.

For the drawing you can use a ruler or you can make a free hand drawing. Apart from the walls, you should also add in the floor plan the door, any windows and other important elements that determine fixture arrangment (radiators, toilet drain tube, etc.).

Note: Be sure to have yout printer settings the same as when you have printed the graph paper.

Step 4: the above sheet, includes various types of sanitary ware with their typical dimensions. However, all fixtures do not have the same measurements. So, after determining the bathroom's layout, you should then look for the specific fixtures you are planning to purchase.


notes:
  • The fixture symbols represent also the clearance area that must remain free around fixtures in order them to be functional.
  • The clearance areas can overlap with each other.

Typical types of bathtubs

KNOW-HOW

Tubes can be categorized by the method used to install them. The three basic installation types are attatched-apron, deck-mounted and freestanding. There are many different shapes of bathtubs and a range of materials to choose from, such as acrylic, cast iron, steel and wood.

  • The rectangular bathtub

Rectangular tubes are the most common shape. The rectangular tub is usually placed in contact with two or three walls. The free sides are covered with tiles or other material such as wood panels. The most popular material for the manufacturing of rectangular bathtubs is acrylic, since this is a lightweight yet very strong material. Moreover acrylic can be easily moulded into the required shape, even into extremely curved details.

Rectangular bathtubs come in a wide range of widths, lengths, depths, and colors in addition to the traditional 30" x 60" X 14" white version. Sizes vary from very short tubs of 1 meter long that are recommended for small bathrooms up to 1.70 or 1.80 meters long. The standard width of a tub is 0.70 or 0.75 meters.

An appropriate size for two people to share is a tube of 1.80 X 0.75 meters or 1.80 X 0.80 meters. In most case there is a side ledge, suitable for the storage of several personal care products (shampoo, soap, sponge, etc).
