Understanding Luxury Listings: Four Types of Bathrooms and What They Offer

Aug 3, 2022

Imagine you’re in the market for a luxury home, and your wish list includes four full bathrooms. As you browse online listings, you find the perfect place. It has all of your must-haves, including those four bathrooms. Unfortunately, when you arrive for your private tour, you’re met with a disappointing surprise: Two bathrooms don’t have all the features you expected, and you need to cross this otherwise-beautiful home off your list.

Don’t let this frustrating situation happen to you! Here’s everything you need to know about the four types of bathrooms you might see in a property listing:

Full Bathrooms
All full bathrooms contain these four fixtures:

  • Toilet
  • Sink
  • Shower
  • Bathtub

In a full bathroom, the shower and bathtub can be separate or combined. Some full bathrooms offer a little extra luxury, such as jetted tubs or dual sinks.

Half Baths
Half baths, also called “powder rooms,” add an element of convenience to two-story or spread-out homes. They contain two fixtures (usually a sink and toilet) and are often placed on the main level, near an entrance or in an area where people gather.

Three-Quarter Baths
Three-quarter baths consist of three fixtures. They are usually missing either a tub or shower. Think of a three-quarter bath as a compact version of a full bathroom. We often see this design in master suites that don’t have the space for a sprawling, spa-inspired retreat.

Quarter Baths
A quarter bath only has one fixture. Usually, that fixture is a toilet. These are pretty rare, although you might run across some older homes with quirky layouts that have one.
