Are you searching for a new apartment or a condo? You must have filtered through the internet to find out the listings, but something got you confused? The listing says this house or apartment has one half-bath and two full baths or the other way round. So what exactly is a half bath? Before that, do you even know what a full bath is? If not, don’t worry. This article will explore full, half, and some other types of bathrooms.
A full bath: what does that mean?
For a bath to be called a full one, it needs to have four basic components, a bathtub, sink, toilet, and a shower. The basic concept that’s working here is, each of the components equals one-quarter. When all the quarters add up, they make a full bath. A full bathroom is what you will find attached to a master bedroom. It is one of the most desired features of homeowners and can significantly impact the property value.
What is a half bath?
Moving forward with the concept of four-quarters, half bath only contains the two essential components, a toilet and a sink. A half bath is also termed as a guest bathroom or a powder room because it is usually used by the visitors and guests who don’t stay much longer. Half baths are typically situated at the entry of a house or in the basement. Although half, it has the power to boost your property value greatly. It can give you a solid return on investment (ROI) more than you may expect.
What is a master bath?
As the name suggests, a master bathroom consists of all the main four components and many others. A master bath can contain all additional luxuries you have always wished for, be it a custom wooden made vanity, countertops, closet, or a walk-in-shower. A master bath is what you will find attached to the master bedroom.
A three-quarter bath and a quarter bath
You may now have a pretty idea of what a three-quarter bath is. It has the three most important bath components, toilet, sink, and a shower. However, some older models have a toilet, sink, and bathtub.
A quarter-bath is a small room consisting of only a toilet or the other type that only has a shower. Have too many uninvited guests? A quarter-bath can save your day.
An adjoining bathroom is what connects two rooms and is great for bigger families. One of the types is a bathroom having doors to two bedrooms; others can be the middleware between a bedroom and a hallway.
