What is a Jack and Jill bathroom? | House Plans with Jack and Jill bath

What exactly is a Jack and Jill bathroom?

Floor Plans with a Jack and Jill bath

A "Jack and Jill" bathroom has two entrances, usually accessible from two bedrooms.

Both bathroom doors usually lock on both sides of the door - to maintain privacy.

Benefits of a Jack and Jill bathroom setup:

 - Private access to a bathroom without having to enter a hallway/public space

 - Cost-saving alternative to a completely private bathroom attached to individual bedrooms

Drawbacks of a Jack and Jill bathroom setup:

 - Having two doors with dual locks means you have to remember to lock and unlock BOTH doors each time you use the bathroom

- A Jack and Jill bath isn't always accessible from the hallway (just from the bedrooms) which can be a drawback for guests staying in another room, unless there's another full bath available.

Secondary Bathroom Set Up Ideas

Another convenient bathroom setup uses two rooms, separated by an interior door.

The exterior room contains the bathroom sink and storage (closet or shelving), and the interior room contains the toilet, tub, and/or shower.

The interior room may contain a second sink with vanity/storage, such as in the custom home pictured to the right.

(Also note the beautiful custom checker-board tile floor in this secondary bath.)
