What's the right floor plan for your bathroom space?

If you're renovating a bathroom in your house, one thing to take into consideration is the layout of the space. This is especially important if you're planning on relocating different fixtures. Before doing so, you might want to remember a few factors to ensure that you will have a comfortable time when using the bathroom.

The first thing that you have to consider is the convenience of the location of the bathroom fixtures. Especially in a small bathroom, there will be instances where you would have to compromise. It may be ideal to place the bathtub next to the window, but if doing so will limit the placement of the bathroom vanity then you might want to rethink your options.

Giving enough space for proper use of the fixtures is another thing that should not be taken for granted. The toilet, for instance, should have enough leg room - at least two to five feet on both sides - for easy use.

Finally, do remember that moving a bathroom fixture means moving the plumbing, and hiring a plumber and buying the equipment needed will cost money.
