BATHROOM | BATHROOM LAYOUTS | DESIGN CONSIDERATIONS

 

BATHROOMS

Options for bathroom configurations range from two-fixture powder rooms to five-fixture master bathroom suites. The diagrams below include the average sizes for bathrooms based on the number and position of fixtures. For all bathroom layouts, comfort and privacy are top priorities.

DESIGN CONSIDERATIONS

 

Two-Person Use

Placing lavatory, bath, and toilet in a single space is not ideal when the bathroom is shared. When two people commonly use a bathroom suite at the same time, an enclosed toilet or a separate toilet room should be considered if space allows.

 

Wall and Floor Finishes

Numerous options are available for floor and wall finishes for a bathroom, from ceramic tile to glass tile to stone. Wall finishes need to be water-resistant with a waterproof substrate to 72 inches (1 829 millimetres) above finish floor and floors need to be slip-resistant.

 

Lighting

Bathrooms should include both general room lighting and task lighting at the mirror and over the shower. The best mirror lighting is at the sides via wall sconces, which prevents shadows on the face. Wall sconces should be placed approximately 66 inches (1 676 millimetres) above the floor and minimally 30 inches (762 millimetres) apart. Avoid using ceiling-mounted fixtures as the sole source of light. If the bathroom is too small and there is not enough room for side lighting, consider introducing a light cove above the mirror.

 

Shower Controls

The many recent advances in shower design can make the selection of shower controls con- fusing. Here basic elements are defined:

 

Spray Showerhead: Traditional showerhead that can be used in a shower enclosure or as part of a tub-shower combination. Mounted to the wall, it comes in a variety of spray patterns. supplemental hand-held showers allow for more flexibility.

 

Shower Diverter: Valve that redirects water from a spout to a showerhead or hand-held shower. A two-way diverter is for a bathtub and shower combination. These diverters can be as simple as a pull-tab on the tub spout that redirects the water flow from one function to the other.

A three-way diverter, which redirects the water flow among tub, showerhead, and hand-held shower, is a separate control value mounted on the wall.

 

Thermostatic-controlled Valve: Valve that allows the water temperature to beset, while controlling the amount of water coming through the system at a precise temperature.

 

High-flow Valve: Valve that controls custom-designed showers with multiple spray heads. At this end of the spectrum, the various manufacturers offer many features that are unique to their system.
