The top 5 FREE Online Bathroom Planner Tools
Planning your bathroom layout can be a daunting task.
Picturing what your shower or basin choice will look in your bathroom space is difficult. Fortunately there is a range of, free, easy to use, online bathroom planner tools out there to help.
Suppliers and manufactures use these tools as a great way of advertising their products. So be aware that, at the end of the day, they are trying to sell you something. But none the less, they provide a great visual and you are not obligated to purchase from these companies.
Many of our clients [we are Plumbers in Melbourne] have come to us with design ideas from using these tools, so I thought it would be helpful to list our Top 5 FREE Bathroom Planners.

Top 5 Online Bathroom Planner Tools
- Reece Plumbing Bathroom Planner [2D only]
This online interface is relatively easy to use. It allows you to enter the dimensions of your bathroom and make allowances for any 'odd shaped' walls.
Once your room size is selected, the planner allows you to position fixtures like doors and windows in your room. And position any additional internal walls your design needs.
Then you can choose from Reece's extensive range of plumbing products and place them in your bathroom. The planner has a 'print' function which prints your layout, along with a list of products used.
If you would like to save you bathroom for future editing, the site allows you register for a free account.
- Tradelink Bathroom Renovator [2D only]
Tradelinks planner lets you pick the dimensions of your bathroom and your overall budget. This is a handy feature to ensure that your design doesn't break budget!
You can register an account with them, which lets you save your bathroom designs, so you can go back and edit them later. Guest sign in is also permitted if you don't want to create an account.
Browsing through the tradelink products is easy and you can add them to your bathroom as you go. The great thing about this planner is all products you pick, go in a list on the left of the screen. Telling you product name, price and dimensions of the products you choose, as you go! The planner allows you to print your design.
- IKEA's GODMORGAN Bathroom Planner [3D only]
This planner lets you choice from two designs, then customize as you choose. You can change the wall and floor colour. And add products from IKEA's extensive product list simply by dragging them onto the planner wall.
The planner will also tell you when you pick IKEA furnishings that don't match! Pretty Cool! This planner provides you with a great visual of what the bathroom will look like when complete. However it doesn't give you an actual floor plan or allow you to add in doors or walls.
- Bunnings Warehouse Laundry Planner [2D & 3D]
I know what your thinking, this isn't a Bathroom planner. But I thought it was worth mentioning the Bunning Laundry Planner anyway. This 3D planner allows you to design a laundry and see how it looks before you build it. First you have to settle on a floor plan. Then choose the bench tops. Followed by positioning the appliances, cabinets and end panels.
This planner then lets you view a 3D model of what your design would look like. And if you are happy, takes you to a page with the plan layout. Hopefully one day they make something similar to help us with Bathrooms, because it would be the best thing out there!
- Villeroy and Bosch [2D & 3D]
'" 6 steps to your dream bathroom'". They were not kidding when they made this statement. Cool Bathroom planner which allows you to easily 'drag & drop' windows and doors into the design. As well as all the bathroom products you need.
They have also thought of letting you pick from a wide range of floor and wall tiles in this tool. You can also view your design in 3D and print both the versions of the plan. Once you have finished your plan, it takes you to a form where you can have a company representative contact you. Works really well, covering all the aspects you need. Worth a look, even if you don't plan on buying Villeroy & Bosch bathroom items.
