There are simply many small bathroom floor plans you can adopt. It all depends on size of bathroom that you want in relation to number of family members and size of your house.
The smallest practical bathroom you can have is a bathroom measuring 5ft by 4ft. This is the smallest bathroom that you can comfortably bath in. The floor space available in this size of bathroom is only enough to accommodate a toilet and a washbasin. It can however also double up as a shower cubicle. This bathroom plan suits singles.
The other small bathroom floor plan you may consider is one for a standard small bathroom. Standard small bathrooms generally measure 5ft by 8ft. This size suits small families. The size of floor is enough to accommodate a shower bath and other bathroom accessories.
One of the most popular small bathroom floor plans that many small families prefer is the 5ft by 9ft bathroom size complete with a shower and bath. This however makes available just enough for dressing and undressing.
You may also prefer to have a long and thin bathroom floor plan depending on structure of your house. This should ideally measure 3ft by 9ft. A small washbasin will be suitable for the size. You will need to have the door open outwards to allow for installation of shallow sinks.
However small your bathroom can be, you need to design it in such a way that you can undress, bath, dry yourself and dress. Because storage is no doubt necessary, you need to consider making use of built-in cistern storage. You can indeed create shelf that runs behind the toilet and basin. No matter how you design your bathroom, one serious mistake you need to avoid at all costs is to position the toilet directly to the door so that it remains visible when the door is opened.
Sometimes an adjacent door is designed in a bathroom which connects two areas with it- one entrance goes to the bedroom area and another one leads to the central part of the home. This technique is used to save some space in small spaces where there is not much area for the construction of an extra bathroom. The bath tub area is instead built in a separated place after kitchen, it is designed either in open or doorless style for more comfort and ease.
Small bathrooms are decorated with all the accessories just like a traditional bathroom is decorated but the placement of sinks and bathtubs are done very carefully. Small vanities are sought to fill the space for using the space wisely.
