    Is there anywhere I can find/download plans for ensuite bathrooms?

    We put one in our last house and it was quite easy but we over estimated how much space we needed and could have made it a little smaller. Our new house could do with an ensuite but space is limited.

    Cant help with a plan but my ensuite is about 1..4m by just under 2m and I have a sink , a toilrt and a 800mm shower as well as 2 doors so a small space is capable of providing enough room to do ehat you need

    It's not really the drawing I need help with, I've got plenty of software which will do the drawing and I've got all the sizes etc for toilets and sinks and showers, my problem is knowing how much space to leave between them. Or how tightly I can squeeze them together!

    But thanks for the replies - It may be useful if anybody else has a small ensuite and knows what size it is. My current one is about 2mx1m at a guess I'll measure it tonight, but if anyone has a smaller one, then sizes wouldbe useful.

    Just done this myself. My ensuite is 2m x 1m - which has single door opening outwards - no window. Don't think i'd want it any smaller though.
    Spend time searching out the dimensions of sanitaryware as this can make a difference.
    I went for a 1m x 0.8m shower tray - good size with a glass basin and a compact toilet - looks great, but as i said wouldn't have gone any smaller

    The room I will need to build it in is only approx 4mx4m. So I didn't want to take too much room up. I think a 2mx1m part in the corner should be fine though. I was going to put a rectangle shower tray in which would go across the end of the bathroom from one side to the other, the sink straight ahead when you walk in and the toilet to the left does that sound right?

    You need a bit of space to step out of the shower, a bit of space to get up of the toilet, a bit of space to stand in front of the basin, and a bit of space to dry yourself.

    All these bits of space can be the same one - about 1 m2 with the appliances arranged around it.

    Thanks everyone,

    All the comments have actually been useful, I just measured the old en-suite bathroom in the old house and it is 250cmx105cm and I always thought it could have been a bit shorter. I'll aim for 1mx2m in the new one - should fit in just nicely
