Bathroom layout is an important factor to consider when designing or renovating your space. It can affect everything from the functionality of the room to the overall aesthetic. If you’re looking for bathroom layout ideas, the team at Aquarina has some tips to help you get started.
First, consider the size of your bathroom. This will help determine the layout options that are available to you. If you have a small bathroom, you’ll want to maximize space and minimize clutter. This can be achieved through the use of built-in storage, floating shelves, and wall-mounted fixtures.
Next, think about your daily routine. Do you prefer a separate shower and bathtub, or would you rather have a spacious walk-in shower? Do you need plenty of counter space for grooming, or are you just looking for a basic sink and toilet setup? Answering these questions can help narrow down your layout options.
Another factor to consider is the layout of your plumbing. If you’re working with an existing bathroom, you may be limited by the location of pipes and drains. However, if you’re starting from scratch or doing a major renovation, you have more flexibility in terms of plumbing layout. This can impact your choice of fixtures and the overall flow of the room.
Aquarina offers a wide range of bathroom fixtures and accessories to help you create the perfect layout for your space. From sleek and modern to traditional and classic, we have something for every style and budget.

With approximately one hundred square feet each, here are four bath renovations that made the most of the space.source: thisoldhouse.com
Considering a master-bath overhaul and wondering what it takes to fit in everything you want?
“A hundred square feet can be a nice sweet spot,” says San Diego designer Corine Maggio. It allows for the classic four pieces—a double-sink vanity, a tub, a separate shower, and a toilet—while meeting the minimum standards for comfort and usability. That means allowing for a 3-foot-square shower, 30 inches of clearance alongside a tub and in front of a commode, and a 60-inch-long vanity.
Is going bigger that much better? It depends. Not all square footage is considered equal, since design decisions are also dependent on room shape and window and door locations. “A narrow space can be quite efficient, since most fixtures go along a wall, while a square lends more flexibility,” Maggio says. “Whatever the shape, clever design can mitigate layout restrictions.” Consider, too, that this size space can also enable higher-end finishes that could break the bank in a larger bath.
Small Bathroom Layouts
Of course, not everyone wants the classic four-piece configuration, even when there’s room, opting instead to ditch a seldom-used tub in favor of a bigger shower, extra storage, a toilet enclosure, or even a laundry closet.
To illustrate the point, see how two designers, an architect, and an ardent DIYer made the most of a master bath in—a bit more or less than—a 100-square-foot space.

CASE STUDY 1: 94 SQUARE FEET
Talk about a tight squeeze. The long, narrow master bath in her clients’ 1951 house in La Jolla, CA, was “closed-in and compartmentalized,” Maggio says—in part because a large linen closet to the left of the entrance was squandering square footage. Removing it and replacing dated fixtures in their same locations opened things up. Though the door and window couldn’t move, “We were able to tweak things enough to make a big impact in the same general layout,” she adds.
With a curvy soaking tub, square tiles instead of subways, and a mix of brushed-nickel and antique-brass hardware, “the bath hits just the right note between playful and sophisticated,” says Maggio.

- Reshaped shower Squaring off an angled shower narrowed it slightly but added length, enlarging it by 4 square feet overall. Axing the angle created the opportunity to utilize the full length of the vanity wall.
- More open space “The linen closet was too deep and heavy-looking when you walked in the door,” Maggio says. A bulky sunken tub abutted both it and the shower. Removing the closet freed up floor space, creating breathing room between the shower and a new freestanding tub. “The more floor you see, the bigger the space will feel,” the designer points out.
- Vanity revamp A larger custom sink cabinet 6 feet long now lines the wall opposite the tub. The toilet stayed in its recess.
- . Sleek storage On top of the vanity, just inside the door, a ceiling-height cabinet boosts storage, and a built-in hamper below collects laundry that might otherwise hit the floor.
