Online Bathroom Planner
Design your bathroom in the comfort of your home
Here’s how to design your bathroom
1. Floor plan
Use our pre-defined standard room shapes to create a basic floor plan with the dimensions of your bathroom. If your bathroom doesn’t correspond to any of the default standard shapes, you can use “FREE-FORM ROOM” to create a room from scratch with your dimensions. To take ceiling slopes into account in your bathroom design, click on the ceiling symbol inside the walls that are affected.
2. Structural requirements
To make your plan reflect the actual conditions in your bathroom, add the existing windows and doors and electrical/water connections in the second step. The 3D bathroom planner will take these into account as you continue designing your bathroom so that when you implement it, there are no surprises.
Use Villeroy & Boch’s unique collections to find and select products you like and place them in the desired spot on your floor plan. If structural conditions make it impossible to place something, the bathroom planner immediately warn you. Thanks to the variety of views and perspectives, it's easy to coordinate individual products exactly and then view the design in 3D.
4. Your bathroom plan
After you have successfully finished designing your bathroom, you may have your design and all of the product information you need as well as additional design options sent to you as a PDF. Just enter your first name, last name and email address in the boxes shown for this and within a short time, you’ll have all the information you need for realizing your dream bathroom.
5. Dealer search

Before planning your bathroom
Think about the architectural features
Every bathroom has special architectural features that are important to the actual planning of the room. If the water and drain lines are already in place, the location of the sink, bathtub and shower can usually only be changed to a limited degree. Consult with your Villeroy & Boch specialist to clarify how many connections you need and what expansion work is necessary when you do your planning. Sloped ceilings also have certain restrictions that can have a significant influence on the design of your bathroom. When remodelling, you should also check that the products you select can fit through the existing door.
Think about the adjacent rooms as well
A spattering shower, quietly gurgling bathwater, or a flushing toilet - noises can’t be avoided in the bathroom. To keep them as down for the adjacent rooms, a well-planned placement of the individual components in a bathroom is recommended. A sanitary object directly on a wall shared with another room should be avoided. Install showers and toilets on outside walls to minimize the transmission of sounds. Be sure to included sufficient ventilation for your bathroom in your planning. For rooms with no windows, a ventilation system is an advantage to remove moisture and odors.
Consider free space and size of the bathroom
You want to feel completely comfortable in your personal dream bathroom, which means you’ll need sufficient free space for moving around. It is especially important to not overfill the space if your bathroom is a small one. The ideal minimum spacing between sanitary objects is 120 x 120 cm. You also need to plan enough space for splash water if you want to install a walk-in shower without a door. Half-walls are becoming increasingly popular for giving the toilet area visual separation. Be sure to plan more space for this.
What do I want to have in my bathroom?
Your very own small oasis of wellness should match your needs and desires as much as possible. Think about which items are essential for you during your planning. Do you want a bathtub and a shower, or is one of the two enough? Should there be a bidet or a urinal next to the toilet? Which electrical appliances do you want to use in your bathroom? If you need to have a washing machine and drier in your bathroom, make sure that there are enough electrical outlets in addition to the water connections. Sufficient electrical power also plays a role in creating a pleasant lighting concept for your bathroom.
Tips and tricks for your bathroom planner
How many people will be using the bathroom?
Family bathrooms have other requirements than guest bathrooms. Think about how many people will be using the bathroom now and in the future. Double sinks are the perfect solution when two family members need to brush their teeth at the same time. If you have children, easy to clean materials are an advantage. Tiles are much easier and faster to clean than a wall covering of wood or wallpaper. Villeroy & Boch CeramicPlus finishing also makes cleaning the ceramic surfaces easier. And don’t forget to consider how much storage room you will need when selecting your bathroom furniture.
Do you want to plan a barrier-free bathroom?
Barrier-free is also a relevant topic when remodeling your bathroom. There needs to be enough space available in order to have all relevant objects easily accessible for comparable comfort. Entry doors without thresholds as well as an accessible shower are essential parts of a barrier-free bathroom. Even the individual height and additional functionalities of the different bathroom elements should be considered. Additional products, such as a grab bar in the bathtub or a shower seat, can meet the corresponding precautions.
Decide on a style
Remodeling your bathroom offers you the opportunity to have a completely new style. Before you start planning, think about which design harmonizes with your ideas and desires best. Do you want something timeless and classic? Or extravagant and luxurious? Do you like country living style, or metropolitan style? Do you like clean lines or do you prefer curved shapes? Our inspiration website pages can give you ideas, and you can try out the different components in your room profile using our online Bathroom Planner.
Visual and functional in interaction
When selecting furnishing objects, you need to pay attention to the practicality of the individual furnishing elements as well as the design. You should have enough cupboards, counter space and shelves to be able to neatly store all of your personal care products. If you have very little space, a tall cupboard and under-sink cupboard are excellent choices. Practical furnishing pieces can prove to be real storage wonders and take up little space themselves. Sufficiently large sinks also offer welcome comfort and convenience in daily use.
Put your bathroom in the right light
To effectively light your dream bathroom, use a combination of different light sources. For example, use an adjustable recessed light to achieve a basic level of light, and, at the same time, to spotlight individual objects. Mirror lighting gives you the brightness you need for your daily personal care and pampering routine. When selecting lighting, you should also consider the different effects of cold versus warm light. Colored light can have an effect on mood. For example, blue is relaxing, while orange light gives off a pleasant feeling of warmth.
