    Default Non-Orthogonal WC and Bathroom

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Hi to all.

    Have a non-orthogonal WC/Bathroom and I have to fix Shower, WC, Washing Machine and Wash Hand Basin into it. Any help will be most welcomed especially from someone who has actually done this.

    Thanks.

    What you have shown so far seems reasonable however...

    Is the washbasin going to be located against the exterior wall in a long vanity cabinet?

    Why do you need three windows in a bathroom?

    Why is the wall for the bathroom that forms one side of the passage thinner than the other walls?

    BTW...is that a walk-in shower?

    One of the problems I see is that you have a fixture that requires a water supply and a drain/sewer connection on each of the four walls.

    Any chance you can move one of the windows to the end of the passageway? At least you would have some natural light in an otherwise dark hallway.

    Can the door to the bathroom be relocated?

    Well here are my suggestions for what it's worth.

    Move one window to the end of the passage way. Relocate the door to the bathroom on the short wall to the left that meets up with the exterior wall. Keeping the washing machine on the same wall as you have it now install a corner shower (one with a 45 degree face on it) in the corner formed by the walls for the passage and the kitchen. Put a small vanity cabinet with sink and the WC on the wall that backs up to the kitchen. Now three of the four fixtures are in a straight line and will be easier to pipe up. And if you eliminate one window and relocate the other two then that small triangular space at the top of the room can be utilized for a storage area. I'd also change the thickness of the wall that the door to the bathroom is located in to match the others.

    After a closer look relocating the door may not be possible since the wall length looks to be shorter than the width of the door. Any chance an adjustment of some kind could be made to accommodate the door?

    Here is a rough idea of what I had in mind. I made the passage wall thicker, moved the door, eliminated one window and rearranged the fixtures.

    If the washing machine comes with a stackable dryer you can easily vent through the exterior wall.

    Remark,

    Thank you very much. I believe your proposal is a much better and more optimal one. I have canceled one of the window and have a riser instead to cater for the various pipes. Attached is the revised layout with a quick 3D for the overall project (not yet revised).

    Why didn't you increase the width of the passage wall?

    Wouldn't the wall between the bathroom and the kitchen be wider to accommodate the necessary piping for the bathroom fixtures? I don't fully understand what you did. In the U.S. the interior walls would normally be framed out using 2x4's except for the bathroom where the plumbing would require a 2x6 wall.

    The wall are made up of concrete cellular blocks (inner and outer walls). All the walls are made up of 200mm due to large span and provision for additional 2-3 floors in the future. The walls for the wc/bathroom is a partition walls, again, concrete cellular wall of 100mm and does not carry any loads. The whole construction lays on a Reinforced Concrete Frame made up of pad footings, Columns, Beams and Slab. The outer walls are load-bearing walls and helpers to the RC Columns, as they are laid prior to casting of slab.

    Attached is the latest layout (2D).

    Something you may not have considered.

    Here in the UK it is very unusual to have a washing machine in a bathroom.
    If no utility room is available then it is more often located in the kitchen, under a work surface on an external wall.

    There are historical reasons for this - washing clothes uses hot water, in the days before mains water and electricity hot water was only readily available in the kitchen.

    But the main reason these days is that electrical outlet sockets are not normally fitted in bathrooms for safety reasons.

    Usually the only outlet socket you will find in a UK bathroom is an electric razor socket, at a relativly high level above the floor.
    Everything else electrical in a bathroom, lights, showers, body driers, etc., is hard wired with water resistant fittings.

    Nukecad,

    Very good input regarding electrical security. I have not thought of this.

    Thanks you very much for this.

    I've actually seen houses, here in the U.S., where the washing machine and dryer are located in a bathroom. They may be hidden in a closet area behind folding doors. Given the shower and sink will require hot water having the washing machine in the bathroom poses no additional problems.

    We rented a house on the island of St. John's that had a stackable, front loading, washer and dryer in a closet in the bedroom. The back wall was shared with the master math.
