What Do You Want In Your New Home?

What Type of Secondary Baths Do Find More Appealing to YOUR Lifestyle?

Secondary Bathroom Designs:

This may seem like an obvious choice, but we have learned from past home buyers that there are some less obvious things to consider.

Usually this set by the design of the floor plan, so to get the layout you prefer, you need to pay attention to the floor plan.

You can, however, on most plans upgrade the number of sinks, color of the vanity or add a walk-in only shower in lieu of a tub.  

Typically design #1 is the standard option for most plans.

There are more options than are shown here, too, so if you have a specific need, please ask the onsite agent or online chat for what plans offer what you want at the community(s) you prefer.

PHOTOS here DO HAVE Upgrades, See Onsite agent for details.


Design #1 

Hall Bath with One Sink and Tub/Shower Combo

Easy access for everyone including if you have a media room 

Less expensive

More counterspace

Disadvantages:

Only one sink (some floor plans have room to offer an upgrade to two sinks, please ask)

No private access from a bedroom


Design #2 

Jack and Jill Bath in two “rooms”.

This is built two ways.  Both have one “room” for Vanity(s) and one for the Toilet/Shower.  The difference is the entry doors.  It can have hall access only or have private access from the bedrooms only OR both.

Advantages:

Each bedroom gets their own sink (this is not always standard, so please see communities’ onsite agent for your plan)

Some plans off a private access version of this layout from each room

With it being two “rooms” if someone is showering someone else can be at the sinks

Disadvantages

More expensive

If you have a media room or loft area, you may have to have a door to this bath or add an additional bath


Design #3

Jack and Jill Bath in three “rooms”

Two separate smaller vanities each with own sink and one for the Toilet/Shower

Advantages:

Extra privacy for each bedroom with the separate vanity room in or next to the bedroom

Each bedroom  gets private access from their room
