If you’re planning a bathroom remodel, you probably already have the sparkling tile, soaking tubs, and vessel sinks all picked out. But before you get ahead of yourself, you need to be sure that you’ve got the basics of bathroom remodeling down first.
One of your initial concerns when remodeling your bathroom should be the bathroom layout plan. As you’re deciding where to place your fixtures in the bathroom, you’ll need to take into consideration your current layout of the bathroom and whether or not you’re going to keep that layout the same. If the present floor plan hasn’t been working for you, consider rearranging the layout to better suit your needs. Just realize that this will increase the price of your remodeling project since the present plumbing lines will need to be moved too.
Bathrooms are generally designed in what is called one-, two-, or three-wet-wall bathroom layouts. A wet wall simply means a wall that contains plumbing for your fixtures. The number of wet walls will influence the layout and expense of your bathroom remodeling project.
A one-wall layout is the least complicated of all the designs since the tub, toilet, and sink are all located along the same wall. This is a simple option for a small bathroom, and it is also the cheapest option since the plumbing lines are along the same wall.
In the two-wall layout, the plumbing fixtures are located on two different walls, allowing for more floor space and storage space around the sink. This design is often called a corridor bathroom, since the sink and toilet are on the same wall with the tub on the wall directly opposite. It’s a nice compromise to the other two options in regards to cost and space.
The three-wall layout allows for the most creativity in the design plan, so it’s a great option for a large bathroom where fixtures will be farther apart and situated on three separate walls. It is the most expensive layout since there needs to be plumbing fittings on three walls.
