Posted on

Having master bathroom in part of your home is like a dream. It has the feeling of luxurious, peaceful, and relaxing, when you can design it rightly. There are some placement tips you can follow for your master bathroom floor plans.


For the sinks position, it should be accessible. From right away when you entering the bathroom and when you finish using the toilets. In a master bathroom, the sink configuration aligns which commonly find is two sinks with cabinetry. The common size is 21” x 72” for two sinks. But if the master bathroom has larger spaces, the sinks can be arranged with separate cabinets. So, you can have personal countertop.


Placing the water closets should be out of the sight lines. Better if you can, place the toilet in a small room. But if you can’t, you still need to place it near the sinks. The toilets room size can be 72” x 36” for more latitude. You also need to install a small window for air circulation. Or at least you can install a fan on this small room.


Tub is the essential elements of the large bathroom design. Although you don’t use the tubs frequently, it is still the most desired item. The placement of the tubs is important. You need to choose an open floor place around the tubs, so you can enter or exit the tubs easily. Choosing the type of tubs is also important, because it can be the focal point of your bathroom.


The placement of shower is also important. Shower area is a place with lots of moisture and overspray, so it should be positioned within water-resistant areas. You have two options. Place it on the open space or make a shower room. When you want to make it more open to the space, what should you do is make the floor divider so the moisture won’t spray out outside the area. Or if you want more private shower area, you can choose enclosed room with glass walls divider. This kind of placement will make you showering without worry about the overspray.

Additional Storage

This is optional. You can choose to install additional storage to store the linens in different area instead of only using cabinetry and drawers within the sinks. Choose the ideal area that far from the wettest areas such as shower or tubs.

Instead of designing a small bathroom, a master bathroom has more flexibility in the floor plan. You can get enough space to include all the elements of bathroom. With the right placement, you can all the right function in your bathroom.
