There is no exact prescription for the best bathroom layout — it all depends on how you use the space. This bathroom has a lot of open space in the middle of the room with functional areas along the perimeter, such as a sink and makeup area. Image courtesy of Jorge Castillo Design

One of the chief considerations for master bathroom layout is the size and location of the tub and shower. A common mistake in master bathroom design is to choose a tub or shower that's either too big or too small. Be sure to very carefully measure your space and estimate what size bathing space it can accommodate, as well as your own preferences.

Discover the role your bathrooms play in your life and identify which bathroom to remodel. Consider how you’re using the current bathroom and how the room meets, or falls short of, your needs. This planning worksheet is a great place to start-> hgrm.sndimg.com/... (Featured room by John Barman)

"Bathrooms are becoming so much more than a room that takes care of a function," says Brian Johnson, principal, Collaborative Design Architects, Billings, Mt. "I compare it to how a TV room has evolved into a home theater with surround sound."

When it comes to the bathroom, there's a lot going on in a relatively small space. Focus on style and function. Consider how many times each day you enter the bathroom and use the amenities in this space. What time of day do you spend more time there? What are your layout needs?
