Bathrooms are essential rooms within your custom house. It is important to get the quantity and layout just right, and there are a bunch of things to consider. Here are some of the top questions to ask your home builder when planning bathrooms inside your custom house.
How Many Bathrooms Do I Need?
One of the top questions to ask when planning bathrooms inside your custom house is how many bathrooms you’ll need. Knowing exactly how many bedrooms you need and whether or not each bedroom will have its very own bathroom can help you in figuring out how many bathrooms are required in your home design.
Where Would You Like to Install Full and Half Baths?
Full and half bathrooms are very important to create a comfortable and efficient home. Depending on your family’s size, schedule, and lifestyle, your house can be a little crazy before everybody heads off to work and school. Creating half along with full baths can reduce headaches. Half baths are also great for house guests and quick touch-ups. You’ll need to decide on where to put full and half baths in your home’s design. Full bathrooms are usually located closer to the bedrooms, while a half bath may be located closer to more social spots. Depending on your house layout and configuration, you may only have full baths and no powder rooms at all. However, it is all up to you what you want in your custom house!
Which Type of Storage Does Each Bathroom Need?
Every bathroom needs some storage. But, including enough storage is sometimes overlooked, which is one of the common bathroom design mistakes you should avoid. In addition to things like cleaning supplies, towels, etc., you will also need storage space for accessories and other types of items. Figuring out the right balance of bathroom storage solutions for each custom house bathroom can help you plan out the right amount of storage where you need it.
Which Type of Bath/Shower will Each Full Bathroom Have?
A tub/shower combination can be an excellent fit for some bathrooms, while a walk-in shower unit is better suited to other bathrooms. If there’s enough space, as is common within a master bedroom, you might decide to have a walk-in shower and a freestanding tub. Discuss this with your custom home builder to get a better idea.
