In order to make an en-suite bathroom you will obviously need to make a few alternations to the existing architectural structure of your home.
If the bathroom you would like to add to your guest room already exists, behind one of the walls in your guest room so to speak, you may only need to knock a hole the size of a door into your guest room’s wall. This will ultimately be the door-way between your guest room and its en-suite bathroom.
You may also want to add on a small bathroom to your home, for example a ‘small outside bathroom’ that can be used by guests after a swimming party or after a trip to the beach.
Structural alterations like these will require small bathroom floor plans.
The Purpose Of Small Bathroom Floor Plans
Your floor plans will give you an indication of the amount of space there will be in your small bathroom.
Because the bathroom you will be constructing, remodeling, or redecorating will be small, you will need to make sure that the items and fixtures you use in this small bathroom are suitably sized to the bathroom itself.
A shower will not take up as much space as a bath tub would. Therefore, using a shower in your en-suite bathroom, instead of a bath tub, will be ideal for a small bathroom.
You will find that using a wall-mounted hand basin will save you a great deal of space too.
You may also prefer to use a sliding-door between your guest room and its en-suite bathroom. This saves the space that an ‘opened door’ would usually utilize.
If you are adding a small bathroom to the outside of your home, you will need to make sure that you know where your plumbing outlets are situated. You will also need to know where your lighting fixtures can be installed.
For plumbing and electrical needs, you may need to hire a plumber and an electrician.
Both of these tradesmen will need to see your bathroom floor plans, in order for each of them to determine the best way to do their job.
How Much Will It Cost You?
Creating your own small bathroom floor plans will not cost you a cent, but making use of a professional floor planner or an interior designer will.
Although drawing your own plan may sound difficult, it could not be any simpler. In fact, you may wish to ask your ten year old son to do it for you, if he knows how to use a measuring tape that is.
If you have never drawn plans for a room in your home before, you can choose to view a few bathroom floor plans on the internet. Once you take a look at a floor plan, you will understand how it works.
Once you have seen and learnt enough, you should enjoy creating your own small bathroom floor plans.
