Which Layout Works Best for You

Three-quarter bath (no tub)

This is a minimalistic practical bathroom with one toilet, sink and shower, which doesn’t require much space and save more expenses. It is wise to emphasize on what the guest will see first from the doorway, which is  usually the sink.

Full bath 

A more spacious type that takes in multiple usage, both for adults, children, and maybe pets, since it has a combination of shower and tub. A full bath mostly accommodate a single or double vanity as a handy storage room for bathing supplies.

Posh Bath

This layout maximizes a limited space for a shared use of bathroom. Not only hosting a double vanity, extra shelves could be put at the end of the large tub to keep more bathing peripherals. It also saves some budget, since the shower room doesn’t entail a door.

As for remodeling, better not to re-route the plumbing and electrical lines too much as it will significantly rise up the bill.
