Awkward bathroom layout-help!
February 10, 2013 in Design Dilemma
To start off, I am 6'4". My bathroom has partially vaulted ceilings, and my shower is pretty small (see pic) and the ceiling goes from about 5 1/2 feet to about 7 feet. I would love to have a double sink but we have a huge window I don't want to get rid of. I found a pic online that I think has a pretty good solution to that problem. Another option would be to put the shower in front of that window... Anyone have any other ideas?

Could you put the toilet where the shower is. Make the bath into a shore and bath combined.

Before you go crazy looking for and then finding a new design, you do know that anytime you move plumbing it's a huge expense? Not trying to disuade you but just wanted to make sure you knew that!

Thanks! I don't think we would to really move any plumbing. We could tap into the bath hot/cold/drain for the sink if it went in front of the window.

I'm not sure if a toilet drain could go into a shower drain... is a toilet waste pipe bigger? have venting? I'm no expert.

Also, I have no problem just eliminating a bathtub altogether. If the shower went in front of the window, I have the dilemma of putting 2 sinks in that pretty small space. I would be fine with them not being together as a double vanity... but where?

Where is your current sink unit - I assume the third picture is a wish list?
Have you thought of a "douche italianne" or wetroom?

Sink is opposite the shower. VERY awkward if someone is at the sink and you're trying to get out of the shower. I never considered a wetroom..... I'll have to see if it makes sense for me. That is pretty out of the box though! Thanks for the idea!
