Question My project design review

Here's a sketch of my bathroom project design.

The room is a bit odd, with the door in the middle, window on one wall, shower on opposite wall. This is a bathroom update project in an old home.

Toilet, Lav., and shower plumbing is all in place as indicated.

I'd like to ask the group here some questions:

1. The shower area. My wife wants a glass wall and door at a neo-angle. What do you think? This will be a long curb to tile and be an irregular shaped pan.

2. Is a shower bench going to work where I have it?

3. Where should the door be on the neo-angle and which side should the hinges be? It swings out by code right?

4. I'm probably going to go with a framed glass door to match 1930s style bungalow. I want ribbed glass, but my wife prefers clear. Stay tuned.

5. Any other thoughts on this layout? There's not a lot of changes I can do to the plumbing, but it's not too late if something is glaringly wrong.

I forgot the Length dimension. Total bathroom length is 124". Basically it's a 5x10 space.

Hi Rob and welcome to the fray!

I won't comment on the design. The guys will help though! (or women!)

Building is not my forte, decorating is. So if you need advice on color, texture or any of the foo foo stuff I'll be around!

Good luck with your project! It does look like a goody dimensioned room...but aren't they all when we're remodeling? (mine is 1920's bungalow) Looks like you're using the space well.

How are you on storage? Got a linen closet or some such?

Hi Rob,

Glad you made it.

If your placement is to scale it looks to me like the sink could be moved closer to the toilet to create more space for the shower. The shower is large enough, but larger is better, I think. And I don't think the space between the sink and the toilet is really usable except maybe for a towel rack.

Hi Rob. welcome. I think the bench is fine where you have it. If you are going to have a glass panel beside the door, I'd put it and the hinge on the left side (if you are standing outside the shower). You can make the sink cabinet bigger or like John said, slide it down.
