Small Rooms Matter!

You’d think that the smallest room in the house would require less planning. Yet, this room gets lots of activity so, master bath floor plans require as much planning as a kitchen.

Do it right the first time to avoid bathroom remodeling later. When designing your master bath, you’ll want to consider the fixtures, layout, materials and accessories. That’s why this small room requires a lot of attention.

Bathroom layout dimensions should take these elements into consideration:

  • Plumbing (toilet, sinks, shower, tub)
  • Wiring (lighting, vents and outlets)
  • Flooring (tile, porcelain, heated or non-heated)
  • Cabinets (linen, medicine and toiletries)

There is a lot to consider and our knowledgeable staff will guide you in the design of your new construction master bath. Depending on your home’s square footage and your sense of style, the type of bathroom and its amenities will be designed to fit your floor plan and budget.

What is Your Lifestyle ?

These factors impact your design needs:

  • The number of people who will share the master bath determines whether double sinks are needed and how much clearance is required between elements for two people navigate the room at the same time.
  • Age makes a difference. For example, older people may prefer specialty lighting and a walk in shower.
  • Your height can influence positioning of counters and mirrors.
  • Consider special needs like shaving your legs using a shower bench which is also convenient feature for anyone using a wheelchair.

Master Bath Floor Plans and Features

Today’s master bedroom suite often consists of the bedroom, a sitting area, closet and an adjoining master bathroom. Of course, the layout depends on square footage and budget. No matter the size, your master bathroom floor plans with walk-in closet should reflect your lifestyle along with being a functional space for privacy and comfort.

For some, the master bath is purely practical and requires only the basic tub and shower, sink, toilet and linen closet. For others, it is an oasis to escape to on a stressful business day or place of refuge from a noisy family. Using Feng Shui, you can position all elements for the best energy flow.

What is Essential Versus Optional?

This small room requires careful planning because so many features must all work together. Think about:

  • Is a soaking tub necessary or are you happy with a tub and shower combo? If a freestanding tub is a big priority, make it the focal point of the master bath. You may want to add water jets for greater relaxation. And, nothing says luxury better than a bay window in front of that tub for a great view!
  • Do you prefer natural light? Many master bath floor plans include skylights and big windows. Placement depends on whether your bathroom is on the first or second floor to maintain privacy.
  • Do you run hot or cold? For ultimate comfort, you might include a timed, radiant heat bath floor that activates in advance of morning showers. And, a heated towel bar ensures toasty towels!
  • Do you like a lot of mirror time? Hair, makeup and other grooming play a large role in bath layouts. A mirrored vanity and cushioned bench could be added for that extra comfort you seek.
  • Do you prefer ultimate privacy? Consider putting the toilet in its own little room, also known as a water closet. This ensures privacy when it is most needed.
  • Are master bathroom floor plans with walk in shower a must? This is especially important for older or disabled individuals.
