Designing bathroom layouts is usually the domain of professional planners, but with a list of planning criteria at your fingertips, your bathroom floor plans can become a fully functional and practical bathroom. As it happens, a lot of house plans minimise the size of bathroom areas making designs for small bathrooms a big ticket item.
But before small bathroom floor plans can be drawn, the planner must review the needs of the residents, access to plumbing and electrical, and the physical structure and size of bathroom fixtures.
Where is the entrance to the bathroom and can it be changed
What type of entrance door can you use
Where do/can the water pipes enter the room
Where are the drains
Is a toilet or bath needed in the bathroom
How big can the mirror be
How many people use the bathroom
How big and what shape can the vanity be
Where can an electrical outlet be positioned
What size and how many windows can be installed
Does the room need a skylight
What style of light/s are required
Does the room require an exhaust fan or heaters
How many towel racks are needed
What bathroom wall cabinets are required
What style and shape can the shower be
What type of shower screen door can be used
Do I need a shower screen door and do I really need a bath

Can walk in shower designs work for you?
And do you really need a bath? A lot of so called walk ins are less than practical and splash water everywhere. I looked around at other setups and, with a little planning and determination to get it right, finished with the setup I wanted.
I had to battle with conservative plumbers and waterproofers who couldn't see the forest for the trees. I used hebel blocks for a low hob and also made a niche shelf. Frameless glass sets it off. See how my large walk in shower was created here.
