Master bathrooms allow homeowners to enjoy some quiet and privacy at the end of a busy day, and they also provide a comfortable and luxurious place to get ready in the morning. There are several possibilities for designing a master bath, depending on the homeowner’s preferences and the layout of the home.
Homeowners can use the following tips to help them think about how they want their master bath set up:
- Space. Ensuring enough space to move around comfortably is important. The room should have clear pathways that are at least 36 inches, especially around sinks and bathtubs. More room might be needed if two people will be sharing the master bathroom.
- Placement. Sinks should be easy to get to as soon as the occupant enters the room. Bathtubs can serve as a focal point, especially if they feature an unusual design. Showers should be placed in areas that are the most resistant to water. They can go in a more open area of the bathroom or be installed with more privacy in mind. Toilets should be installed where they will be out of sight, and an exhaust fan or window should also be included. If there is enough space, a linen closet can also go in a master bath.
- Measurements. Sink cabinets are typically between 24 and 36 inches wide, although they can be up to 48 inches wide. Standard tubs measure between 60 and 72 inches long and between 30 and 42 inches wide. Comfortable showers are generally between 36 inches deep and 48 inches wide.
