I really want to split it up to make a guest bath and a separate laundry room- now I know I could split it down the middle but I keep thinking that making them asymmetrical would actually give me more room in the end. I have a jacuzzi tub ( only slightly larger than the norm) that I want to put in. I want an area to hang clothes to dry or as I fold. I still want my ironing board in there and would prefer to be able to store bedlinens in there - oh and the utility sink - am I asking too much?

    I always start my thoughts on a project like this by drawing it out on graph paper...1 square on the graph paper equal 1 foot in the room. Then you will be able to draw in your tub with it's exterior dimensions (keeping in mind that the room will need to be framed in so you will lose some space to build the walls). But you can get a general idea of how you want to lay it out, what works best for flow and what you actually have room for.

    putting a pencil to paper on this one is the place to start for sure! doesnt sound like too much other than the tub - they can fill a space quickly. if you are trying to plan on your own, be sure to keep clearances around toilets/tubs/vanities at least 24". Walkways can be down to 30". Folding clothes you would appreciate at least 36" aisles

    Both Decor 8 and Beckysue.have great advice. Remember that it's not just a matter of getting all the items in the new area. Care should be given to where existing plumbing and electrical is located. Moving these will substantially increase the time and money needed.
