Upon first inspection, it may seem easy to produce bathroom floor plans. After all, all you really need is room for a bath or shower, maybe both, as well as a toilet and a bathroom sink. Everything else is just decoration, right?
Well, not necessarily. When you are busy with your bathroom designs, it is always a good idea to take some time and produce a few different bathroom floor plans. You can then compare them and make a decision as to which one will be the best.
It is very easy to make changes when your fittings and fixtures are on paper, but it is much more difficult, not to mention costly, to make any changes, once everything has been plumbed in.
What Are Your Specific Needs?
When deciding on various different ideas for your bathroom floor plans, think about how you use the bathroom layout you have at the moment. Which features do you particularly like? Which ones have always irritated you? What would you really like to have in an ideal world?
Bathroom Floor Layout
Assuming you have a budget with an upper limit of some kind, you will probably find you have to make compromises on your finished bathroom floor plans. However with that in mind, you should always strive to make sure the compromises are on style and not on practicality.
Remember, you will have to use your bathroom every day, so it will pay to think through any issues you have with space (or lack thereof) before you buy any fittings.
Creating Bathroom Floor Plans
It is very important that when you are designing your bathroom floor plans, you use scale paper. You should work out a scale that is easy to use, and cut out the exact measurements of the bathroom suite that you have in mind. You should also make sure that you include and doors, windows, radiators or any other fittings which may affect the layout of your bathroom.
You also need to keep in mind that if the plumbing for your existing suite has to be moved, that cost will have to be accounted for. It’s very easy to move a drawing of a toilet, for example, but moving it in reality is a major job, and can be very expensive. Try and keep it in its existing location if you can.
It can be great fun designing bathroom floor plans, but you should be realistic at the same time, and not get too carried away. Remember that you will have to be able to cover the cost of your bathroom designs, and at the same time be left with something that you will be able to enjoy every day, once it is finished.
