Tiny house bathroom

Tiny Haus Badezimmer

Planning the bathroom in your tiny house might be the biggest challenge for you. After all, it's often the smallest room and once you've installed a shower, it could be difficult to relocate it.

That's why we're giving you 4 helpful tips to consider when planning your bathroom in your tiny house.

1. what do you do in your bathroom every day?

Depending on your habits, you will probably carry out certain activities in your bathroom, such as brushing your teeth, showering, drying your hair, etc.

To make sure you don't forget anything, make a list of the things you do regularly and only sometimes in your bathroom.
Then take a moment and think about it:

What don't I like about my current bathroom? What is a need that my current bathroom doesn't fulfill?

Is there a way that this element/item could become redundant?

Do I have several of this item and can I reduce it to my favorites?

Really go through all the details (from towels, hairdryers, razors, make-up, cleaning products, brushes, etc.).

Once you have worked through your list, we recommend a trial run in your current bathroom and after a few weeks you will realize what is practical, what you absolutely need and what you haven't missed at all.
This will give you a list of everything that should be included in your bathroom.

2. bathtub, shower or both?

Probably one of the biggest decisions. Do you love bathing and can't do without a bathtub under any circumstances, but in that case can probably make do with less living space in other rooms?

If your answer is a resounding "yes", you should probably do the same. After all, you regret compromise decisions in hindsight.

Do you love showering and can do without a bathtub? Then your decision is clear.
However, you may also want to opt for an interim solution and install a bathtub with a shower curtain.

Again, it should be noted that a bathtub naturally requires more space than a small wet room.

3 The toilet problem

The choice of toilet actually depends not only on the porta potti, i.e. which model you put in your bathroom, but also on a number of external factors.

Tiny houses are usually mobile, which means you can simply take your house with you when you move.
However, if you opt for a ''fixed toilet'', you will also need a sewage system or your own septic tank.

This should be available on your property or, if in doubt, you can install it yourself or have it installed.

Unfortunately, it is not cheap to have your own septic tank and it requires regular maintenance. This is a permanent cost factor that should be carefully considered.

A very common and also very practical solution is a dry separation toilet. Here you have a container for the urine and one for the solid waste.
Because both are separated and you simply cover the excrement with, for example, some hemp litter, nothing stinks and you simply empty the respective containers after a few days.

The urine can be "diluted" in various ratios and used as fertilizer for your plants, for example.
You can dispose of the excrement in the residual waste or compost it and use it as fertilizer for your plants.

4 The storage space problem

At the beginning, you questioned and sorted things out. As a result, you only need storage space for the really important things in your bathroom.

One way to store things is above the entrance door to the bathroom, for example. This is often a space that is out of our field of vision. If you put a shelf there, you have a place to store towels or containers that are used less frequently, for example.

How about a shelf directly in the wall? These are simply partially recessed into the wall like a small open cupboard, giving you additional storage space without having a shelf right in the middle of the room.

Pull-out shelves, similar to a chemist's cabinet, are also particularly practical. They often fit into the smallest corner, but give you a lot of storage space.

Various organizers are particularly suitable for creating more storage space in the individual shelves and drawers. In other words, small dividers, baskets, boxes etc. in which different things are sorted and compressed so that not everything flies around loose and takes up more storage space than desired.

Hopefully we have been able to help you with this article and wish you lots of fun sorting out and planning your bathroom.
