I want to remodel my bathroom. It's 7'8" x 8'5". Ideas?

There is a closet on the other side of the shower. I thought about knocking out the wall and combining the bathroom and closet. If I did that it would be 14'6" X 8.5. I thought about having one wall a closet with sliding doors. I would like a spa feel. Help!

think you are on the right track. Another idea I have seen, is to use the wardrobes as a dividing wall giving you a smaller "dressing area" on the wardrobe side, and along the back of it, you can tile, have you vanity, bath, etc. So you end up with something like a 8.5 x 6' dressing area, and gain 2feet extra in the bathroom . Hope that makes sense.

Questions on your sketch ... what is the measurement from the wall to the door casing where you plan to put the toilet? Are you on a crawlspace? Is that a 30" door above the shower and a 35" bifold below the shower? Thanks.

From wall to door casing is 30". I'm on a concrete slab. It is a 30" door to bathroom and 35" bifold into closet. This drawing is based on removing the wall separating the bathroom from the closet. Thanks!

Be prepared ... since you are on a concrete slab, if you want to move plumbing, it will require busting the concrete, moving, and re-pouring. Completely do-able, just a bit more expensive. I will try to generate something and post back ... will most likely be tomorrow.

Do you think it's worth moving plumbing? or should I try to make it work by not moving the plumbing.

Always try first without moving the plumbing (especially the toilet's). Water can be adjusted quite easily, but drains in concrete are a pain in the &*^%.

Is it possible to enter the bathroom via the dresser, so the wall where the door is now can be used?

Good idea. Let me see what I could do with using the closet door as the entrance. That would give me a lot more wall. Thanks!

Here something to get started. The toilet is still in the same place, I only turned it. (Hope the drain is downwards?) If I've done it right, it should all be in the right scale. The grey block on the side is where the wall used to be.

WOW! Thanks! I think you nailed it. What program did you use to do the layout?

Hi pveale, Nice help from ringqreation but I don't recommend a corner bath tub. Those are really dating and such a pain to fill.

You can draw your own bathroom for free online through Icovia.com - pretty much any reputable furniture store carries it and you can access the software for free through the furniture store. Punch in your room size, then add the pieces to the puzzle as you find the items you want. It's not rocket science, what is important are the finishes. Find your inspiration point and start designing! Good Luck...some inspiration for collecting your colour palette before your commit.

That was the room without the wall, now one with the wall still in there. I recommend a wall because of the humidity. Better to be able to close off the bathroom from the dresser when you need to. All will still fit in. A set of pocket or barn doors will look great without getting in the way.

In answer to Marie's post; it is a corner bath, but it's either a normal shape inside a corner. I wouldn't pick a hollow corner too for the filling (spilling) reasons. It just had better sizes to make combinations.

Great ideas! Thanks for your input. What do you think of a slipper claw foot tub installed with a built in corner or shelf? other ideas?

Personally? I would not pick a clawfoot, because I'd hate cleaning under it.

I'm having such fun! Here's another idea:
Cut the dresser almost in half (can you handle that?) and create a large walk-in shower. This way there's room for a claw foot tub (my opinion is it needs to be 'free'). No space for a double sink this way, but it's give and take. Barn doors on both openings will give easy access (or doors swinging outside).

Careful on the last design with the vanity spacing. Building codes in my area require a minimum of 30" clearance for the toilet (wall to vanity). Check your local codes.

That'll do, it's in scale. I took 90cms (35") for the toilet (less would be too narrow, code or not) and 90cms for the vanity. The total width is about 255cm (8'5"), so the opening to the shower can be 75cms (30").
