For the sanitary ware go with wall-hung or standard close-coupled toilet and basin with pedestal with acute angles and a contemporary design. Abstract towel rails and wenge wall-hung furniture fit well in the fantasy bathroom, giving it that calm almost surreal look.
A full sized standard tub or combination shower and tub measures 32 inches by 60 inches. A standard toilet is 20 inches by 25 inches and the vanity is usually 19 inches deep and space will determine the width of the sink vanity. There are many small bathroom floor plans that easily incorporate these fixtures in a bathroom as small as 5 feet by 8 feet. Of course, a larger area naturally provides more options. An additional 2 feet of space will allow for a very useful linen closet, perhaps placed at the end of the tub. However, storage can be taken into account to include spacious medicine cabinets and narrow depth cabinets for the wall above the toilet. Lighting and ventilation must also be looked at ahead and if a window does not already exist, fluorescent lighting is available in abundant styles, some with ventilation fans incorporated into the design.
Quite often, with the hectic lifestyles of most families, more than one bathroom is necessary to prevent irritation and stress when both husband and wife, and perhaps even children need to get ready to leave the home at the same time. Adding a half bath helps, but with careful planning, the same space allocated for a half bath can be utilized for a second small bathroom. This permits more than one family member to bathe at the same time, while a half bath is limited in function. Taking the time to develop a small bathroom floor plan is key to producing a satisfying and useful design. Floor plans do not have to be elaborate undertakings, as a simple sketch that includes certain points will suffice.
