How to remodel an oblong shaped bathroom?


Reader’s question

"My bathroom measures 1.80m x 2.90m. The interior door is on one of the long sides. I would like a built-in washing machine under the counter. What bathroom layout to choose? There are no restrictions on the drainage position. Also I would like two windows for more natural light. Thank you in advance"

Our recommendations
You do not specify which sides of your bathroom are external so as to suggest the position of the windows. Consequently, we suggest two options in order to select the proper one.


Option 1. The windows can be located on the long side of the bathroom

On the long external side we place the tile counter with vessel sinks and the mirror. The built-in washing machine is installed on the left under the counter. A wall mount vanity is placed next to the washing machine. The toilet pan is installed on the opposite side, as there is enough leg space to the vessels and the bathtub is placed against the back short wall of the bathroom.

We suggest two windows, one on the left over of the washing machine and the other over the bathtub on the right.

Alternatively you can hang a storage cabinet above the washing machine. In this case we recommend one vessel sink on the countertop and one widow next to the mirror and the second window over the bathtub.

Option 2. One large window can be located above the bathtub

In this case we suggest the same sanitary ware layout and one large window instead of two placed above the bathtub on the narrow wall of the bathroom.

We mention that the toilet pan in both options can be wall-mount with a concealed cistern for spaciousness and easier cleaning of the bathroom.
