Designing Your Perfect Oasis: An In-Depth Guide to Creating Various Bathroom Layouts

Bathrooms should be beautiful and functional, no matter how big or small they may be. With the right design, you can create a bathroom that fits your lifestyle and makes you feel relaxed and inspired.


When considering how to design a bathroom, you should think about the type of layout or plan that will work best for your space. You can choose from different bathroom layouts, including full bathrooms, three-quarter bathrooms, half bathrooms, and quarter bathrooms. Depending on your needs and the size and shape of your bathroom, some layouts might be better suited than others.


In this post, we’ve outlined some of the most common types of bathroom layouts and designs that you can use to maximize your space and create the perfect bathroom for your needs.

Types of Bathrooms

Full Bathroom

Full bathrooms are the most common type of bathroom layout and offer the most functionality. They include all the necessary components, such as a bathtub, shower, sink, and toilet. This layout is ideal for larger bathrooms with more space. Every home will need at least one full bathroom.


A full bathroom is often built into master bedrooms and is a great choice for providing full functionality in a larger space. It can also be used to create an en suite bathroom in smaller homes. Although full bathrooms are the most common type of layout, they may not always be possible in small spaces. In these cases, three-quarter bathrooms and half bathrooms make better options.

Three-Quarter Bathroom

Three-quarter bathrooms are the second most common type of bathroom, and include a toilet, sink, and either a bathtub or shower. This layout is best for small- to medium-sized bathrooms where you want to maximize space without sacrificing functionality.


A three-quarter bathroom is ideal for guest bedrooms or as an additional bathroom in a larger space. They’re perfect for providing basic functionality while still maximizing space.

Half Bathroom

Half bathrooms are the smallest type of bathroom layout and typically include only a toilet and sink. This is perfect for small spaces, such as guest bathrooms or powder rooms. In fact, half bathrooms are great for small apartments where space is limited and you don't need full functionality.

Quarter Bathroom

Quarter bathrooms are the most compact type of bathroom and offer minimal functionality. They include either a toilet or a shower stall. This layout is ideal for extremely small spaces, such as powder rooms or secondary bathrooms that don't need to be used frequently.


They are not common in houses built today, however, they can be great for additional storage. This bathroom layout is mostly seen in the basement of older homes for additional convenience, such as for avoiding going upstairs multiple times.
