Bathroom Renovations Planning

The people, not the fixtures, should be the dominant theme & determining factor. Planning should involve the following consideration:

  • Available space
  • Layout
  • Style & Aesthetics
  • Relationships to other areas
  • Fixtures & Fittings
  • Colour scheme & Theme
  • Accessories
Bathroom Activity Centres
The bathroom is considered to have three main activity centres:

  • Vanity/Grooming Centre
  • Bathing/Showering Centre
  • Toilet area

With the size of space in mind, the arrangement of the activity centres within it will depend on the functions of the bathroom.

Ideal Clearances
  • A person requires a minimum distance of 500mm clear space to bend over at a basin.
  • Where one person is using a basin and a walkway behind is required, a distance of 1100mm is required for passing.
  • A walkway of 600mm minimum should be allowed for one person to walk through a space.
