What Are The Best His And Hers Bathroom Layouts?
Looking for his and hers bathroom layouts? There are different options out there. Here’s a helpful guide on the best ones.
When planning a new bathroom remodel, there are so many things that you need to think about. What will you be replacing? Will you be changing the layout? What budget do you have? One thing you’ll need to consider if you’re remodeling a master bathroom is whether you want a his and hers bathroom layout.
These have a lot of advantages, as they can offer you more space for getting ready in the morning. That’s something that you’ll often want, especially if you’re both getting ready at the same time. How can you lay out the bathroom to get that kind of usage, and have enough room to move around in?
Here are some ideas for you to try.
The One-Sided Bathroom
This is a bathroom layout that can save you a lot of money as a home owner. The layout places the bathtub and the sinks along one wall, so they can share the same plumbing structure. It’s something that helps save on those plumbing costs when you’re renovating, and will still look good.
There are some added benefits that you can get from this layout, too. If your door is on the opposite wall to the tub and the sinks, you’ll find that the toilet isn’t the first thing you see when you walk in. As well as this, it’s a great layout for women getting ready in the morning.
Why? You can set this up so the vanity is next to a window, opposite the shower. That means that there are less problems with moisture causing problems with their hair or makeup.
A Long And Narrow Layout
If your bathroom is long and narrow, you can still get a his and hers bathroom. It just requires some flexible thinking. The shower and bathtub are at opposite ends of the bathroom, with the vanities in between. If you’re able to, you can splurge on a free-standing tub. These often look amazing in bathrooms, and here they’ll create a focal point at the end of the room.
The shower can be separated from the vanities using a pony wall too, creating separate spaces within the room. Even if space is limited, you can get what you need.
The Small Bathroom Layout
Even if your bathroom is on the smaller side, you can get the look that you’re going for. With this layout, you may not have the space for a separate bathtub and shower, but you can go for a bathtub/shower combo, or a walk-in shower. On the opposite wall you can have your sinks, and in the middle goes the toilet.
It works well, so even if you don’t have a lot of space you can still get the space needed for you both to get ready in the morning. You can add in extra storage too, such as a set of shelves on one side of the tub or walk-in shower. This layout needs a bit of creative thinking, but it can totally work.
A Layout That Can Be Changed
While you’re planning your bathroom layout now, you’ll want to think about what you may need to change in the future. Are you planning to stay in the house long-term? If so, you want to be able to change up the bathroom to suit your needs as the case may be.
For example, take a kid’s bathroom. In this layout, vanities and sinks are installed on the opposite wall to the door, with a bathtub at one side and the toilet on the other. Again, that door spot means you won’t see the toilet as the first thing when you open the door.
Having that bathtub will be perfect while the kids are younger, but once they get older it’s very easy to add in a shower that they can use. If you can plan ahead for your needs in the future, this can help with your bathroom layout.
The Ageing In Place Layout
Aging in place design is something that more people are looking into. Rather than moving into retirement homes, they adapt their homes to be ready, once they get older and need more help getting around. That’s something that they’ll need especially in the bathroom.
This is a layout that you can achieve with a larger bathroom. A large soaking tub can act as a centerpiece, and then sinks can be placed on either side of it. At one end, a walk-in shower with a seat is added.
This is a bathroom that works perfectly now but will have more use as time goes on. That walk-in shower and seat will help the owners be able to be more independent for longer, making it easier for them to stay in their home.
A Spa Style His And Hers Bathroom Layout
If you have the space for it, why not go all out? You can add in two sinks and a full vanity along one wall, so there’s plenty of space for getting ready in the morning. On the opposite side, you’ll have a large soaking tub, a walk-in shower, and a toilet.
This is a layout that feels super luxurious. Again, the soaking tub acts as the focal point of the room and is a great place to relax at the end of a long day. As you have so much space for getting ready, both you and your partner can keep all their belongings under their own sinks, making getting ready super easy.
You can change this up slightly if you need more storage. Two vanities and one sink can be used here instead, adding more space to store things but still giving you all that room to do your hair in the morning, without knocking into one another.
