Q. What is a "point one" bathroom? As in 1.1 bath, 2.1 bath. Does it mean a bathroom has an extra sink? I've never seen .1 or .2 bath defined anywhere.
Non-member response Submitted 06/17/07 10:46 AM
Here in Oklahoma the point one means that the home has a half bath. So 2.1 would mean the home has 2 full and 1 half baths. A half bath used to be denoted as .5, so that a home with 2 and half baths would be 2.5, but now it would be shown as 2.1.
Funny how things are different in different states. Here in Florida it is still 1.5 or 1 and 1/2. And here we consider a bath with a shower to be a full bath. A half bath for us is just a sink and a toilet, sometimes referred to as a powder room. The 2.1 does not make sense to me. Wonder where that one started.
Like the first two ladies answered on behalf of their states...In Illinois, .1 means 1/2 bath. The number in the tenths place (the digit immediately following the decimal) is the number of half baths! 2.1= 2 FULL and 1 half bath.... 2.3= 2 FULL and 3 HALF baths!
Whether it's 1.1 or 5.6...seems to make great sense to me and really cuts down on any confusion! John, what do you do in Florida when you have 2 full and 2 half baths in a house? If you have 2 halves--do they make one whole and call it 3 baths (as opposed to Illinois' 2.2)?? See why it helps?!?!
In Illinois the period denotes full baths to the left and half baths to the right of the period. A half bath will have a sink, toilet or both and a tub or shower will make it a full. We use the term powder often for a half bath since the one thing lacking from a half bath is the means to bathe. Go Tell.
