Home design and construction: Bathroom basics

Just what are the bathroom basics?

Various countries have different terminology dealing with the size of bathrooms and what those bathrooms contain. Usually these other countries have developed their bathrooms based on space restrictions, something that has never been a worry in the wide open spaces of the United States!

Here is the terminology for bathroom basics in the United States.

Master bathroom: will have a bathtub, shower, toilet and sink at a minimum, and of course adjoins the "master bedroom."

Full bathroom: contains a bathtub, shower, toilet, and sink, but can be located in a hallway anywhere in the home.

Three/fourths bath: This room will have a toilet, a sink and a shower.

Half bath: Has just a toilet and a sink.  This is also known as a powder room.

However, the way that these types of bathrooms are noted in real estate brochures can be confusing, so be sure that you really understand what you're looking at when you look at the brochures, to make sure you are getting the number and size of bathrooms that you expect!
