How to Count a Bathroom

What is a FULL BATH?

No, it’s not when you fill a bathtub to the top.  Geez.

A full bathroom is made up of four parts: a sink, a shower, a bathtub, and a toilet. Anything less than that, and you can’t officially consider it a full bath.

But what about a half bath, or three quarter or ¼ bath.

The math is pretty simple: Each utility is counted as one-quarter.   So a bathroom with a sink, toilet, and shower is considered a three-quarter bath. A bathroom with just a sink and a toilet is a half-bath.  

And you probably guessed that a quarter-bath is quite rare for the simple reason that if you have a toilet, you need a sink in which to wash your hands—and a room with only a sink or bathtub is just plain odd….and though I’ve never come across a quarter bath…I’m sure they exist.

Bathroom count and bathroom size tend to be pretty important to the average buyer…so if you’re listing your home please get the bathroom count correct…because you know how to do the math now
