Bathrooms DefinedYou may have seen while searching online for homes such things as half bath, full bath etc., below is a list of the true definitions

Full bathroom

First, let’s start with a full bathroom. The full bathroom consists of what tends to be either one or two sinks, a tub and a shower. Many times you will see a full sized closet in the master bedroom bath.

Half bathroom

A half bathroom contains a sink and toilet but no shower or bathtub, typically found on the first floor of a two story home. Also known as a powder room or guest bathroom.

3/4 bathroom

Technically, a bathroom with a sink, toilet and tub, but no shower, could also be considered a three-quarter bath.

Two and a half baths

Two and a half baths is simply two full bathrooms and one half bath. Typically the larger the home the more bathrooms it will boast.

Double sinks in a bathroom are often referred to as “Jack & Jill” which is common these days.

So, to break it down this is what it means:

  • 2.5 bath would be two full bathrooms, and one half bathroom
  • 1.75 bath would mean one full bathroom, and one 3/4 bathroom
  • 1.5 would mean one full bathroom, and one half bathroom
  • 2.25 would be a full bathroom, a three-quarter bathroom, and a half bathroom.
