For example, nested configurations work best in same-handed rooms, allowing designers to achieve desirable sight lines, family zones, and views outside while reducing plumbing costs thanks to that shared wall, says Paul Macheske, associate principal and director of healthcare design at Hunton Brady (Orlando).
At the same time, the water pressure needs to be consistent on all floors—which, Griffin said, can be an issue depending on the size of the pipes and the way the pipes are run through the walls. We kind of went through trial and error on some of our other properties, and every time, it just gets better because you learn where the issues are.
Standard efficiently designed bathrooms have a tub, double vanity or pedestal sink, and toilet lined up against one wall, known as the wet wall. If this layout is getting on your nerves and your standard sized bathtub has just enough space to wet your elbows when you shower, then consider removing the tub and installing a walk-in shower with a frameless glass enclosure. Include niches for bath accessories. Additional storage can be installed at a certain height on the wall, making space for foot traffic. This arrangement will create a spacious feel as it makes the vision flow beyond the tub and the shower curtains that were obstructing the line of sight.
