Basement Bathroom/Laundry Room Combo Advice Needed, please

9 years ago

I thought we had a little more time to think about the design of this room, but the builder asked yesterday if we could know by today (YIKES!) how we wanted this laid out.

Does this layout look ok (I realize it's pretty "rough")? Or can anyone see a layout that would work/function better?

We are building on a small lake and want this bathroom to be a hardworking, stop and leave the sand here before continuing further in the house point. We are hoping to have kids' friends over next year for playdates, etc. and this would be used by them for that same purpose. Washer/Dryer will probably only be used for beach towels/swimsuits.

The room is 10' x 14'. We would like the door to stay where it is placed for quick and easy access to the bathroom from outside the house. I don't have the window size handy right now.

The water closet is 42" x 6' and the shower (as drawn now) 42" x 42".

In the space to the left of the shower, I would like to put something like this.

The sink I like right now is this.

And I thought I could put it on the wall by the door, like this.

I'd like to be able to do something like this around the washer and dryer.

And for the wall opposite the shower, I'd like a tall cabinet to store a broom/mop in and the tall open cabinet for beach towels and some lower cabinets for folding area. And upper cabinets for more storage.

Upper cabinet idea.

Base cabinet idea with no sinks.

Does the layout look ok? Any ideas for improvement.

Thank you all for you time and thoughts!
