Bathrooms come in a dazzling array of shapes, sizes, and layouts. You may not change the type of bathroom when you remodel, but it’s a good idea to look at all your options first. A designer from HQ Bathroom Remodeling can help you see possibilities you might have missed. For instance, a cramped half bath could be transformed into a luxurious master suite by borrowing space from a walk-in closet or bedroom.
A standard bathroom or full bath usually consists of a sink, toilet, and bath or shower. Some older homes have only one full bathroom for the entire family to share. Master en-suites contain the same basic features but are accessed through the master bedroom.
A half bath, or powder room, features a sink and a toilet and can be used for guests or family members who do not require a full bath. If you live in an older home that has only one full bath, adding a half bath can improve your life by giving you more privacy when you have guests over for dinner and allowing you to get ready in the morning without having to wait for someone else to finish in the main bathroom.
A wet bath is a full bathroom with a shower. The shower is not in a separate cubicle or behind a curtain, so the whole bathroom is waterproofed, including the floor, cabinets, and walls.
Wet rooms are among the most interesting bathroom designs, because they offer a sleek and modern appearance without any shower doors to get in the way. They are also incredibly practical: the room is fully waterproofed so you don’t have to worry about water splashing on the floor or walls. Wet baths also make sense from an accessibility standpoint, because there are no curbs or other obstacles that keep someone with limited mobility from passing safely into and out of the shower.
