Home improvement is necessary for many households, but only a few have the means for it. Among these, bathroom renovations are popular choices for most homeowners, costing up to R55,000 . The cost is thanks to how big these projects get.
Going for a small bathroom is essential if you want to reduce bathroom remodelling costs as much as possible. So, how much space do you need? Read what’s below to find out.
Half bathrooms are the most common choice for apartment buildings or small houses. These bathrooms often contain the basics of a bathroom. You’ll find these have only one sink and one toilet, and not much else beyond that.
15 square feet of space is all you need if you’re considering this type of bathroom for your living space.
If you want to have more than a sink and toilet, a full bathroom is for you. These are generally around 36-40 square feet big, giving you enough space to install a bathtub and shower inside. You can even fit a walk-in shower by expanding it to 60 square feet.
It’s a great option for your house if you can spare the space for it. If you can find a bathtub-shower combo to install, the average full bathroom will have enough space left over to accommodate a powdering station.
A bathroom remodelling project for handicapped people needs to be at least 15 square feet. It’s enough to ensure those in wheelchairs won’t hit anything when turning around in the bathroom. The door also must be around 2.5 feet wide to be big enough for all handicapped personnel to pass through.
Remember to install safety bars, too. These must be lower than 3.5 feet from the ground to ensure everyone can reach them. This measurement applies to the door handles, as well.
