What Is a Full Bathroom?


A full bathroom is a bathroom that includes a toilet, a sink, a bathtub, and a shower (or a combination of bathtub and shower). Full bathrooms are a necessity in homes.


  • A full bathroom by definition includes four plumbing fixtures: a toilet, a sink, a bathtub, and a shower. However, you can find many full bathrooms that vary from this definition. Some bathrooms include a shower but no tub and are still called full bathrooms. Some older homes may have just a tub, and likewise are still considered full bathrooms.


  • Full bathrooms can be any size, as long as they are big enough to include the necessary plumbing fixtures. Some full bathrooms are just big enough to include these, while others offer significant storage space or room for an extra cabinet or chair.


  • A full bathroom services lavatory and bathing needs. It stands in contrast to a half bathroom, which does not have fixtures for bathing.


  • You will usually find a full bathroom near the bedrooms in a home. In a smaller home, there may be only one full bathroom (and no half bathroom). In larger homes, there may be a half bathroom on the first floor and full bathrooms upstairs, where they are convenient for residents but not for guests.


  • Many homes offer a full bathroom as part of a master suite. This layout typically adds value to a home. More full bathrooms usually mean a higher home price.
