I have been told many different stories, what is considered a full bath in reality?

People keep telling me that a full bath is considered a tub/shower combination, sink and stool and that a full bath is not a shower, stool and sink. my parents have two bathrooms that consist of a sink, stool and shower and 1 bath that only has a sink and stool, so how many full baths would you say it is?

It is a national standard from my understanding.  It really is pretty straight forward.  I'm not sure why all the different answers come up, but the majority of answers say the same thing.  Just don't add them together though.  Its a list, not a math equation.

Mike:  Is this standard nation wide or does it depend on rules and regulations of appraisers per state?

For real estate purposes it does matter if you have a bath or shower.  A toilet, sink & bath make a full bath.  A toilet, sink and shower is a 3/4 bath.

In other applications, these may differ, but for real estate transactions, this is the correct way to list it and appraise it.

If a toilet & sink makes a 1/2 bath, and a toilet, sink and bath or shower makes a full bath, then what would be a 3/4 bath?  A toilet & 2 sinks?  A toilet, bidet and sink?  2 toilets and a sink!?  No.

It's funny that you received numerous answers all different.  I would suggest you look up and appraiser in your area and ask him/her how an appraiser judges a full bath around there.  What is advertised as a full bath and what is appraised as a full bath can be 2 different things and since the appraiser holds the power to make or break your deal, you should talk to a local appraiser.

A full bathroom is a shower or a bath tub and vanity and toilet.  You do not need a tub and shower to be a full bath.  you just need one in there and it is a full bathroom.  Ahalf bathroom is only a toilet and vanity.  I hope that helps.  From Designs by Kimberly Jacobson and TMBAth and Kitchen installation.  Barrington Il.

Two 3/4 baths & a 1/2 bath.  Don't add the numbers together or it will sound like they have 2 full baths which is not correct.

sounds like 2 and a half to me.  that's what it should be listed as anyway.  appraiser may say 3/4, 3/4, 1/2 though

This seems to be for real estate purposes, and shen18 has it right. Each of these are great candidates to be cosmetically improved prior to the sale, along with the kitchen, if that's the case.

Your parents have two 3/4 baths and one 1/2 bath.

Therefore, it adds up to 2 although mentioning 2 may be confusing with 3 toilets.

Hi blueyes927 -

In real estate, bathrooms are computed based on the presence of a bath tub, shower, toilet and sink, and are totaled in quarter increments. For example, a quarter-bath is a sink or a toilet; a half-bath is a sink and toilet; a three-quarters bath is a sink, toilet and shower; and a full bath is a room with a toilet, sink and bathtub. A full bath may or may not include a shower.

Thank you.
