There are so many ways to describe a bathroom that it can be confusing. What is the difference between a full bathroom, half bathroom, three quarter bathroom, etc.?
A full bathroom is made up of four parts: a toilet, a shower, a bathtub, and a sink. It is what most people associate a bathroom to be. Anything less than the four pieces cannot be referred to as a full bathroom. There is no size reference when considering which category the bathroom will fall into.
Three Quarter Bathroom
A three quarter bathroom will have three of the four components of a full bathroom hence the 3/4. It will contain a sink, toilet, shower or tub. The most common will contain a shower versus a stand alone tub. Again there is no reference to size, only the contents of the bathroom.
As you may have figured out by now, a half bathroom contains two of the four components which is a toilet and a sink. Typically half bathrooms are very small but a luxury to have since guests do not have to be exposed the the primary bathroom or the one used by children.
Jack and Jill Bathroom
A Jack and Jill bathroom generally refers to a full bathroom that is sandwiched between two spaces. For example, the bathroom can be entered through two bedrooms. It is a shared space between the adjoining rooms. They are not very common but can be a very functional space.
Now you can flex your bathroom knowledge when looking for a new home or renovating an existing one.
