Where to Place the Commode

When designing your new home floor plan, make sure to consider master bathroom layout options - especially where to place your commode.

Here are the top four most popular master bathroom toilet locations, to help you decide which style best fits your personality and needs. The customization options are endless, when you design and build a custom home with Stanton Homes. 

Master Bath Floor Plan Ideas

1. Separate room with door

Need lots of privacy? Then design a floor plan with a completely separate commode room, with a door that can lock.

2. Separate area with full privacy wall, but no door

If you feel a little claustrophobic in a closed commode room, then consider master bathroom layouts with a full wall separating the toilet.

Leave off the door, and the room will feel more spacious.

3. Half-wall for separation

Master bathroom layouts with a half-wall separating the commode maintain some privacy, while keeping a more open feel.

4. No separation

For some accessible homes, full dismount space may be required.  A layout such as this can allow easy access for all users.  The shower can be completely open, or include a full or half wall of glass.
