What's A 3/4 Bathroom And How Can You Tell If You Have One?

According to Kukun, a 3/4 bathroom is one that contains three plumbing amenities — namely a toilet, a sink, and a shower or a bathtub (but not both.) A bathroom that contains all four fixtures is commonly known as a full bath. Therefore, if you have one with three of the aforementioned plumbing amenities, then yours is a 3/4 bathroom. As Home Decor Bliss explains, a comfortable 3/4 bathroom is generally around 32 square feet. If you have less space, however, you should be able to get away with smaller fixtures. It won’t be as comfortable, but it will get the job done.

They also mention that any bathroom that is less than 40 square feet is usually considered small, so keep that in mind. Your bathroom layout will depend on how your three fixtures are set out, and there are a few configurations you can go with, but it’s important to remember that a typical shower is 32 inches by 32 inches. If you do have enough space though, it is recommended to add a bathtub as it is then an easy job to install a shower over the bathtub, and viola, you’ll have a full bath instead of a 3/4.
