Space Layout for Narrow Hall Bathroom
This featured bathroom is not even the size of a full 5×5 hall bathroom, so special care needs to be given to the layout of the space. As you can see, the back of the room is narrower as some other room (a closet perhaps) juts into the room and takes up the back right corner.
What they did is to locate the shower stall in the back alcove on the right, with the toilet and sink between the shower stall and the door.
They’ve done many things right in an effort to create a space that feels larger:
- The tiles for the floor and the shower back wall and long and thin and the long side runs sideways. Stripes always have the effect of making the room long longer in the direction the stripes run.
- The shower tile runs all the way up to the ceiling.
- The toilet is wall mounted so it does not sit on the floow.
- The shower stall and the bathroom overall is constructed in such a way that a shower curtain or door is not needed. This is primarily achieved by virtue of using a rain style shower head and a shower stall that is fairly deep.
- The wide mirror also adds to the effect by providing a lot of reflective surface which both keeps more light in the room (by bouncing it around) and creating a visual illusion of space behind the mirror.
The only recommendation I would make to further enhance the effect is the bringing of some natural light into the room by way of a solar tube, assuming there is not a second floor above this bathroom.
