The bathroom has come along way in the past one hundred years. Once just a basic tub set in front of the living room fire and filled with buckets of water, the bathing experience is now a luxury in almost every western home. Back then, a "bathroom" was something only the wealthy and privileged could afford to have in their house. It was this trend which lead to the mass production of bathroom products.
A full sized standard tub or combination shower and tub measures 32 inches by 60 inches. A standard toilet is 20 inches by 25 inches and the vanity is usually 19 inches deep and space will determine the width of the sink vanity. There are many small bathroom floor plans that easily incorporate these fixtures in a bathroom as small as 5 feet by 8 feet. Of course, a larger area naturally provides more options. An additional 2 feet of space will allow for a very useful linen closet, perhaps placed at the end of the tub. However, storage can be taken into account to include spacious medicine cabinets and narrow depth cabinets for the wall above the toilet. Lighting and ventilation must also be looked at ahead and if a window does not already exist, fluorescent lighting is available in abundant styles, some with ventilation fans incorporated into the design.
Faucet. What style of faucet are you interested in? This will help you to determine which bathroom basin are the best fit. You may want silver or you may decide to go with gold faucets. It all depends on your preference and the bathroom décor. You may want a fancy appearance or one that is simple. Take a look around to decide what you feel would be the best type to replace your current one.
