For growing families, having bathroom space is important so everyone can get ready on time in the morning. Adding a bathroom may be necessary if the master bedroom doesn’t have an ensuite. Even if you have a small house, you can find room for an extra bathroom.
Full or Half-Bath?
When adding a bathroom to your house, decide whether you need a full bathroom with a toilet, sink, and bathtub or if just a sink and toilet will do. If you just need a WC, then it can go almost anywhere including a closet or underneath the stairs. For full bathrooms, consider updating the laundry room with a stackable washer and dryer and then use the rest of the space for a bathroom.
Install Near Pipes
To control the costs of adding the bathroom, it should be installed close to another bathroom, the kitchen, or the laundry room so it is close to the water pipes. It will be less expensive for Renfrewshire plumbers to tap into existing pipes and the sewer line than it will be to install the necessary pipes in another part of the house and run them to the main water and sewer lines.
If the bathroom is installed in a closet or beneath the stairs where there are no windows, you will need to add ventilation to the room. A ducted fan can provide air circulation to prevent odours from lingering in the small space. To add natural light, consider installing a skylight window.
Choose Non-Traditional Door
There may not be room to install a door that swings into a small bathroom. However, you can still have privacy by adding either a swing-out door if there is room for it or a pocket door.
With these tips, you should be able to add the bathroom that your family needs.
