This is definitely the best piece I've read on understanding how a bathroom 'works' in relationship to the plumbing and measurements. Thanks for writing it! We have a very strange (to me) ensuite. Toilet and sink on one wall, shower opposite..so far, so good. But..the Shower doesn't take up the whole wall, so there is a space, as deep as the shower and as tall as the room, about 12" across that does absolutely nothing. Would you recommend installing shelving in it or extending the shower? I think, if we extended the shower, we could put in a tub (I'd like that!). Door is a slider, so no opening/closure to add into the measurements and, on the wall outside the ensuite are 2 7'long closets on either side of the passageway to the bedroom...so I suppose the Bathroom could be extended, if called for... ?? Thanks again

Just bought my retirement home and am planning on gutting and redoing the only bathroom in the house. As this is the home I plan to age in and I haven't sat down in a tub for at least 10 years, I'm planning on replacing the tub with a shower. This article has a lot of good info for standard dimensions, and I'm looking forward to incorporating some of the design tips the author discusses.
As far as designing with resale in mind, I couldn't care less. I'm going to enjoy my house with features that please me - period. Thanks for the informative article.
