Half-Baths | Utility Bathrooms

Half-baths, also known as utility bathrooms or powder rooms, are minimum bathrooms that have two of the four main bathroom fixtures—typically a toilet and sink. Used primarily for short term visitors, half-baths are often found near the main entrance of a space and offer guests an easily accessed bathroom. When laying out a new floorpan or renovating an existing space, it is commonly recommended that adding half-baths, or converting existing closets into half-baths, is a strategy that adds higher value to real estate. Half-baths are designed with a variety of layouts that can be differentiated as linear, single wall, or split plans.

Full-baths with central layouts split the bathroom into two separate fixture walls that pair the toilet and sink on one side and the bathtub isolated on the other. Typically sized based on the width of an alcove bathtub, central full-baths dedicate a central aisle that can easily access both the bathtub and/or the toilet and sink.

Accessible Residential Bathrooms

Accessible bathrooms are bathrooms designed for wheelchair users and required to provide enough clear floor space for a wheelchair to turn.

equiring enough internal clear floor space for a wheelchair to make a 180° turn, accessible bathrooms must have either a 60” (152.5 cm) diameter turning circle or a T-shaped turning space located within a 60” (152.5 cm) square with a minimum of 36” (91.4 cm) wide arms. Doors should have a minimum width of 32” (81.3 cm) and cannot swing into the required clear space of the accessible bathroom. Clear floor spaces at fixtures and entry routes are allowed to overlap with the wheelchair turning space. Similar to other bathroom designs, accessible bathrooms have multiple layouts differentiated based on split or side fixtures and vary in size with minimal lengths between 8’4”-9’8” (2.54-2.95 m) and widths in the range of 5’4”-6’10” (1.63-2.08 m). Consult local building codes for accessibility requirements. Overall bathroom sizes will vary based on the actual dimensions of bathroom fixtures.

Split Bathrooms

Split bathrooms are designed to further separate bathroom uses into a primary sink and entry area and a more private bathtub and toilet zone. Divided by a central pocket or swing door, the split bathroom is ideal for shared bathrooms where one user desires additional privacy without restricting another persons access to the entry sink and vanity area.
