2 2EDT Floor Plan Design- Bathrooms Number of Bathrooms u All homes require at least one bathroom. u Most modern homes have 1-1/2 or more. u Ideally, every bedroom should have its own bath, however this is seldom possible.

3 3EDT Floor Plan Design- Bathrooms Bathroom Location u Bathrooms should be located near the bedroom and living areas of the house. u If the house is small, one bath may be sufficient. u In this case, locate the bathroom in a place where it will be most convenient.

5 5EDT Floor Plan Design- Bathrooms Bathroom Location u A half bath is one that does not have all three major fixtures. u It usually has only a water closet and lavatory. u A three-quarters bath has a lavatory, water closet, and shower.

33 33EDT Floor Plan Design- Bathrooms Bathroom Requirements u A bathroom must have ventilation. u This maybe provided by windows or an exhaust fan. u If windows are used, care must be taken to locate them properly. u Window placement should be such that a draft is not produced over the tub and maximum privacy is secured.

34 34EDT Floor Plan Design- Bathrooms Bathroom Requirements u If an exhaust fan is used, it should be located near the tub and water closet area. u Electrical switches should be placed so that they cannot be reached from the tub! u Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) receptacles should be used in the bathroom.

35 35EDT Floor Plan Design- Bathrooms Bathroom Requirements u Accessibility to the bathroom is important. u If there is only one bath for all the bedrooms, locate the door in a hall common to all the bedrooms. u One should not be required to go through another room to reach the bath.

36 36EDT Floor Plan Design- Bathrooms Bathroom Requirements u Bathroom doors are ordinarily not as wide as bedroom doors. u A door that is 2'-6" or even 2'-4" is usually sufficient. u In some instances pocket doors are used to subdivide the bath into two or more areas, as in a two-compartment bath. u Doors should swing into the bathroom and be designed so as not to interfere with the use of any fixture.

37 37EDT Floor Plan Design- Bathrooms Bathroom Requirements u Safety should be a prime consideration when planning the bath. u Flooring materials that become slick when wet should not be used. u Grab bars should be installed around shower stalls, and bathtubs. u Generally, horizontal bars are more preferable than vertical bars.

38 38EDT Floor Plan Design- Bathrooms Bathroom Requirements u Devices should be installed in tub and shower faucets to control water temperature thermostatically to eliminate burns from scalding water. u Also, devices can be installed to control the water pressure so that when the cold water pressure is reduced, the hot water flow is automatically reduced.

39 39EDT Floor Plan Design- Bathrooms Bathroom Requirements u Non-shatter glass should be used in shower and tub enclosures. u Special provisions should be made for any disabled person.

40 40EDT Floor Plan Design- Bathrooms Bathroom Requirements u Economy is partially obtained by the supply and drains being placed on a single wall. u Also, there is no wasted space in this functional bath.
