Sometimes, placing a toilet under the stairs can be a necessity, which must be adapted according to the layout of the rooms around it, as well as the height of the finished floor level of the second level.

It is a space that can be used, but it does not have the ideal BATHROOM MEASUREMENTS in terms of its depth or height under the ceiling. However, it is wide of the small toilet, it is adequate for its function.

This will depend on the height of the upper floor and the length of the sections of the stands.

In many cases it will be necessary to adopt a door design that adapts to the height of the ceiling. This can be an opportunity to achieve a better design and more interesting decoration.

The slope of the stairs is usually in the region of 33 to 35 degrees of inclination.

The image shows fundamental measures to take into account to build a bathroom under a straight staircase.

The back wall must be built so that it reaches a height of about 1400mm, and from there, locate the toilet, which is usually in the position with the least space.

Place the toilet where the ceiling is lower, but avoid hitting their heads.

This is influenced by the tread-riser relationship. Being a SMALL BATHROOM PLAN, it is convenient to locate a small toilet, no more than 650-670 mm long, with a tank if necessary, helping to avoid bringing the head closer to the ceiling.
