Types of Bathroom Floor Plans

The tight space of most bathrooms means it’s more important to create accurate layouts that ensure you make the best use of space. Use both 2D and 3D bathroom floor plans with dimensions and fixtures to anticipate problems and help clients visualize the final design. Floor plans allow clients to identify the place of the key elements in the room: bath, sinks, storage, toilets... and make sure the bathroom space matches their lifestyle.

5 Key Bathroom Layout Considerations

Designing a bathroom floor plan can be challenging. So here are a few key things you should keep in mind when planning a bathroom layout.

Dry vs. Wet Zones

A popular design trend for larger bathrooms is to fully separate the bathroom’s wet and dry zones. A wet zone is an area that includes the shower and bathtub. The dry zone is everything else like the toilet, vanity, and changing area. Designing a wet zone that’s away from the flow of traffic helps keep people from getting their feet wet unnecessarily while keeping the dry zone cleaner.

Line of Sight

No one likes to open the bathroom door and be greeted with a prime view of the toilet. Avoid this by creating a bathroom floor plan that keeps the toilet out of the direct line of sight when the door is open. Try placing the toilet off to one side of the doorway or next to a vanity. You can even create a separate toilet compartment or use a piece of frosted privacy glass.

Included Fixtures

Think ahead to how your client will use their bathroom. Will two people need to use it at once? Should the toilet and/or shower be placed in a separate section of the bathroom to afford more privacy? Does the bathroom need a double sink? It’s also important to plan efficient locations for smaller fixtures like towel racks and toilet paper holders.

Windows and Privacy

Bathroom windows are both a blessing and a curse. They add natural light that helps the small space of a bathroom feel less claustrophobic, but they can make it harder to have your privacy. As a solution, try using skylights or transom windows where possible. You can also choose opaque window glass to help obscure the view and add a touch of style.


Bathrooms can fit into surprisingly small spaces. Just 40 square feet is enough for a full bath that’s laid out correctly. When creating bathroom blueprints, take into consideration the dimensions of the fixtures and the required space around and above them.

Frequently Asked Questions About Bathroom Floor Plans

What is the Best Layout for a Bathroom?

A lot depends on the space you have to work with. One of the best layouts for small spaces is the classic “three-in-a-row” with the tub/shower, toilet, and sink next to each other along one wall.

How Much Size should You Allow Per Person in a Bathroom?

If the bathroom will be shared by two people during morning rush hour, plan for a double sink with at least 30 inches of width per person. It’s also a good idea to allow pathways that are at least 36 inches wide for optimum ease of movement.

How Much Space is Needed Between a Toilet and Shower?

If the toilet is next to the shower, it’s best to leave at least 18 inches from the toilet’s centerline to the edge of the shower. For toilets that face the shower, try to leave at least 30 inches of space in front of the toilet.

Why is the Toilet Always Placed Next to the Shower?

Fixtures are often placed along the same wall to reduce plumbing costs since all the piping is in one wall.

What is the Best Bathroom Design Tool?

Pen and paper works for the basics. But to create accurate 2D and 3D floor plans for bathrooms along with photorealistic 3D renderings, nothing works better than Cedreo.
