The bathroom used to be a utilitarian place where you did your duty. They were usually small, around 6x8 that usually was the standard 3 piece, with toilet, tub, and sink. Most of your new track homes has the same - a cheap fiberglass tub/shower, toilet, and sink. But the sky is the limit in custom homes. What you got?

Ours is 5' x 7' The toilet is very basic and utilitarian. There's a beautiful vanity that we installed at the start of the pandemic. The shower has upgraded tile and the bathtub is removed so the shower's actually quite roomy. Nothing to write home about but we're comfortable.10
My house was built in 1957 and was your normal tract house. 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. One bath had a tub/shower and the other just a shower for the master bedroom. It is about 1700 sq. ft. Yeah, they were not luxurious bathrooms, but they get the job done. I'd rather have a larger bedroom than a bathroom being larger. Some of the tracts around here have houses with 2 bedrooms and 1 bath.11
What Girls & Guys Said
That's really pretty and from pic it looks like a mahogany or cherry sink? Tub? Beautiful and very spacious for the woman to hide in.10
That's a bit excessive. Even I'd I had the money I wouldn't want it.10
my main one... it is the size of a small bedroom, lol
but I'm very fussy about bathrooms5
The bathroom is not terribly big. There is however and extra large shower stall. It is probably 10 X 12 .0
I have a standard 5x7 bathroom. I'm not rich to have a luxurious bathroom like in the picture4
About the same size as the picture11
i think mines about a 4x4 but it works0
Much smaller than this2
My bathroom is 8x13' overall, plus a small bump out where the door coming from the primary bedroom is. The custom tile shower is 3'x8' with a large bench, glass door, and two independently controlled shower heads (for sharing shower time). There's a dual vanity with solid surface countertop, and the washer and dryer are in the bathroom (which is super convenient and I kinda want to put it in the primary bathroom at any house I have in the future).
Do you find hot water runs out sooner with 2 shower heads?
It lasts around 15-20 minutes depending on the the season (the municipal water is much colder in the winter so we have to mix more hot water to get it warm enough). Think of it like two back to back showers, but simultaneous. It doesn't save water, but it doesn't use more water either. It just saves time and allows for some one on one time with my wife.
Our house is 125 years old, but the bathroom is only 5 years old. We took over space that was an oversized laundry room that shared a wall with a bedroom to make an ensuite.
Lots of people update old houses. Sometimes it can be expensive though.
Yeah we're about $70,000 into renovations so far. Lots of DIY and spacing projects out so we can pay cash. But the equity built up in the house far exceeds the remodeling expenses.
