What’s More Than a Full Bath?

By convention, Realtors call a Bathroom with a sink, toilet, bathtub and shower a “full” Bath.

Because each of those items counts as .25, a Bathroom missing one or more of them is considered a fractional Bath.

So, a Bathroom with a sink, toilet, and shower (but no tub) is a 3/4 Bath.

Ahh, but what do you call a Bathroom with all four of the usual features plus a freestanding shower?

And not just a bare-bones, telephone booth-like fiberglass shower insert, but a granite and ceramic tile-framed enclosure with multiple, Jaccuzzi-like water jets; heated tile floors; built-in music and cable TV; and custom recessed lighting.

You could easily make the case that such a room qualifies as a 1.25 or 1.5 Bath (or 1.375 or 1.625 Bath, if it includes a bidet). 🙂

P.S.: Notwithstanding the picture (above), I’ve yet to see a Bathroom with a Fireplace.

But, given that it’s Minnesota . . . why not??
