What is a Three-piece (3-piece) Bathroom?
A three-piece bathroom (3-piece bath) is a restroom with three plumbing fixtures: a sink and a toilet, plus one other fixture.
Real Estate Agent Explains Three-piece Bathrooms
A three-piece bathroom is most likely a full washroom, but the thing is, that the third fixture could be anything. If that third fixture were a sink, that bathroom would not actually be a full bathroom. Three piece washrooms are not as common as four-piece bathrooms because of the shower/tub combinations that are so common now. (For more information, see full bathroom.)
Three-piece bathrooms can be abbreviated as a 3-piece bath or 3pc bath on real estate listings.
The three fixtures of a three-piece bath could technically be any of the following:
• Sink, toilet, shower
• Sink toilet, bathtub
• Sink, sink, toilet (not likely, but technically possible)
Here is an example of how those three fixture layouts might look:
Why Does It Matter?
Well, if you were expecting to have a shower in a washroom and found out it was actually a bathroom with a bathtub instead, you might be disappointed. So really it’s best to see the bathroom or restroom or at least a picture of it to know what it really is.
