    Default Tiny bathroom options

    We are finally finalising our bathroom renovation, and the only sticking point is the bath. until we have an ensuite with walk-in shower, we need to find a bath that has a good, wide, flat space to stand in. At the big green shed the other day we saw a corner bath, about 1200 x 1200 that had a nice wide flat space. It just fits into the space, with room for the toilet, and the vanity just outside the bathroom in the hallway. I am inclined to go with the corner, since with either arrangement neither of us will be able to get in for a good soak (he's tall and I'm just oversized.)

    Which layout do you like?

    **Edit: We'll be removing the window and installing a skylight**

    I have an abiding aversion to corner baths, but in that layout it looks good. I second option two...

    You could add a shower over the corner bath as well and get the best of both worlds.

    Good luck.

    Shower over the bath is a definite, I just didn't draw it. )

    Just to be different.
    We have option 2 (Corner bathette). Really miss a proper bath. For that reason I would go for option 1. If you are eventually going to have an en-suite then with option 2 you will end up with two showers. With option 1 you will have a shower in the en-suite but still have a bath for visitors, kids, grandkids etc.
    Vanity in the hallway would be a PITA when shaving etc.

    Edit:
    Forgot to add. In our bathroom, for opt 2 where you have your cupboard we have a space about a window wide where we have our vanity unit sitting in a corner cupboard. If you go option 2, maybe you could do that so the vanity is not out in the hallway.

    Option 1 - corner baths are a compromise too far.....our deep bath from Reece (Mizu Deep Soaker) can be used as a shower base, comes in a 1400 length and wasn't expensive.

    Check our progress, we put the vanity in the hallway and it works for us, the bathroom would have been too small for comfort otherwise, our biggest complaint is the complete lack of real baths for real people, all the baths on the market seem to be made for kids and midgets, not full grown adults.
    A bath needs to be 7 feet long and 4 feet wide, I'm using Imperial because they seem to have stopped making real baths about the same time we went metric.

    Think about the cost hot water you have saved and you will feel better.

    Heat isn't cheap but my old aching back needs the occasional soak and soaking is way cheaper than physio and chiro
