Is the bathroom used by visitors?

Bathrooms are an integral part of any home. Considered to be the second busiest room behind a kitchen, bathrooms must combine functionality and durability for the day to day activities of a family, while providing a place of calm contemplation for those relaxing evenings spent in the bathtub.

If you have ever struggled with a bathroom design which doesn’t meet your needs then you know the difficulties this can cause. Building a new home can provide you with the blank canvas to ensure the bathroom meets your functional requirements, alongside your aesthetic desires.

It is extremely helpful to consider your daily routines. If the mornings create queues for the bathroom, think about the inclusion of an ensuite, or where space is limited consider the use of a multi-functional bathroom, creating separate zones for additional flexibility. Double showers can also allow couples or parents and children to shower at the same time comfortably.

Citing bathrooms to allow natural light is often desirable, however the location of adjacent water and waste services can provide a construction efficient location, for example above kitchens or next to utility rooms. Ventilation and electricity also need to be factored in to bathroom placement.

Keeping a bathroom simple is key to ensuring good functionality. While aesthetic preference for bathroom components may add cost, good overall design catered to your needs should be a standard consideration when liaising with your builder or bathroom professional.
