Tiny bathrooms can be extremely frustrating. But with the demand for housing (and the number of one-person households) increasing, it’s no surprise. Many modern apartments make do with a minuscule 5-foot bathroom. Even with larger square footage, bathroom design can be boring.
Luckily, you can jazz up a bathroom regardless of its size, shape, or layout. You just have to be creative with your floor plans. So whether your bathroom space is asymmetrical, curvy, or oddly angled, you can find a plan that fits. Here are 21 of our favorite bathroom floor plans.
1. Small and simple
Just because you’re low on space doesn’t mean you can’t have a full bath. This 5 x 8 plan places the sink and toilet on one side, keeping them outside the pathway of the swinging door. It also keeps your commode hidden while the door is open. The tub fits snugly at the back end.
- Square footage: 40 sq ft
- Width: 5 feet
- Length: 8 feet
With this floor plan, you get a full-sized 60-inch bathtub that fills the entire back end of your small bathroom. Size limitations don’t have to stop your luxurious after-work soak. The close-quarters layout also makes it easier to clean, and faster too.
We all settle for that two-and-a-half bath dream – when we have to. But we’d really rather not. And even with a full bath, we’d prefer the toilet and tub to be kept separate. Here’s a floor plan suggestion that does exactly that. And it gives your bathroom some real character in the process.
- Square footage: 104 sq ft
- Width: 11 feet
- Length: 10 feet 6 inches
The shape of your bathroom is unusual, and it creates mini-alcoves for the sink, tub, and toilet. The door has ample room to swing without hitting or squeezing anything. Downside, with twelve ‘walls’ instead of four, there’s a lot more bathroom to clean.
3. Angular perfection
Who said a bathroom has to be square or rectangular? You can still get a symmetrical bathroom with unexpected lines and corners. This somewhat hexagonal bathroom has six walls instead of four, so it gives you a few extra surfaces to work with. Meaning you can do way more with it.
- Square footage: 70 sq ft
- Width: 9 feet 4 inches
- Length: 7 feet 6 inches
While this shape is aesthetically pleasing, the angles and shorter walls make it hard to sneak in a bathtub. Instead, the shower sits at one 90º corner while the toilet sits at the other. Opposite the door, you can install a three-sided vanity with a sink right in the middle.
4. Home spa
With the right design choices, plain square bathrooms can be the most exciting type of all. They offer convenient edges and corners for easy décor. Plus, if they’re large enough (and if the subjects are sufficiently intimate), two people can use the bathroom at the same time.
- Square footage: 102 sq ft
- Width: 9
