Difference Between Salle De Bain And Salle De Bains

Well, when I was younger, I never used “salle de bain”, but “salle d’eau”, even if there were a bath and a shower. (I still hear my mother saying “Va te laver les mains à la salle d’eau avant de manger”) For me the two expressions are synonymous.

Thanks. So if you were asking someone where the bathroom is (at their house, a restaurant, etc.), which word would you use?

What is the difference between salle de bain and salle de bains ?Feel free to just provide example sentences.

OK let’s sum it up, a salle de bains is always a salle d’eau, but a salle d’eau is not necessarily a salle de bains.

Sorry to revive an old conversation, but what would we say in English for a ‘salle d’eau’ in commercial premises – I don’t know whether there’s a shower, I’m fairly sure there’s a toilet (or several) and washbasin(s).Thanks

Il n’y a pas de différence entre les deux. Les deux formes sont correctes.

Let’s agree to differ. In our flat we have no bath, only a shower. And guess what we call the room still? La salle de bains! I’ve never heard anyone actually saying “salle de douche” in RL.

@Farslt97: Il n’y a pas de normalement 😊 D’ailleurs, les rares dictionnaires qui prennent parti pour une seule forme choisissent “bains”

I am sorry to say that salle d’eau is not the same as salle de bain. Technically, salle d’eau is either a salle de bain (bathroom) or a salle de douche (shower room). But in practice, if one reads salle d’eau in a real estate description, then that is probably a salle de douche (they don’t want to say there’s no bath so they use a broad term !).

toilettes = toilets (basically where you pee etc…) bathroom = can include the bath/shower, sink, toilet…

as far as i know, salle d’eau, although not commonly used, is a synonym of salle de bains.. […]

Can ask all types of general questions and can understand longer answers.

What is the difference between les toilettes and la salle de bain?Feel free to just provide example sentences.

Hi everybody, May I put my 2 cents comment; the term “Salle d’eau” is designed for anything that does not have a bath, as of the term “salle de bain” is a bathroom and not use to identify the same thing.

European would used term W.C. (water closet) and is specifically the toilette with but not a must running water to wash your hands. Salle d’eau has a toilette, could have washer and dryer, could have a shower but does not have a bath.

Therefore was incorrect to use the term salle de bain (bathroom) cause there is no bath.

Perssonaly, I’ve never heard salle de douche. I always say salle de bain, whether it is fitted with a bath or a shower.Salle d’eau is a general term that is used only by estate agents and in classified ads, and I’m not too sure about what it means exactly, and I think many people are not too sure either.

If there are multiple bathrooms in a house, I’d call them la salle de bain du haut (topfloor), la salle de bain du bas (ground floor), la salle de bain du fond (at the end of the hall), la salle de bain de la chambre (en-suite bedroom).

..That’s my experience folks Edit: How do you call a bathroom with both a bath and a shower?

What is the difference between les toilettes and la salle de bain ?

Est-ce que “salle d’eau” est synonyme de “W.C” ou “salle de bain”?

Les deux formes sont techniquement correctes mais ´salle des bain’ s’écrit normalement sans ‘s’.

Has difficulty understanding even short answers in this language.

No one here seems to have basic building design background (French point of view at least…), so here is my input to all that mess : – salle d’eau : a room where you have a water distribution access, whatever the goal is since it is for sanitary reason(s).

May be a simple small washbowl inside room to give that name to room. – salle de bain : a room where a bath is fitted in the room, with possible other additional sanitary fittings (sinks, washing machine, toilets, bidet, etc.

) – salle de douche(s) : a room where you find only shower(s) and no bath, with possible other additional sanitary fittings (sinks, washing machine, toilets, bidet, etc.). YET this term is indeed far less used in common language and replaced by “salle d’eau” or even “salle de bain” because this is the most widespread type of room for washing, at least in dwelling units.

The term is far more widespread when talking about rooms for common use such as shower room for locker room in a gymnasium or in a factory…Hope this helps tp make things a bit more clear.That is the way in France terms are used and written down to distinguish sanitary rooms on plans and when designing the different locations of such rooms, because water flow rates required are then not the same.

You don’t ask where is the “salle de bains” it would mean that you want to take a shower or something haha

This thread is so much fun, and the terminology so confusing, I’m afraid I must add to it! I’m translating a description of a villa, which includes on one level “deux salles de bains, une salle d’eau et dépendances” and on the other “une salle de bain et water closet”my try: one level: 2 bathrooms, ????? and ????? (I really have no idea) other level: bathroom and water closet.

..so this property has salles de bain and a salle d’eau and a water closetAlso, the description is from a legal document, not a real estate listing, if that makes any difference. Merci d’avance,Gargamelle

@Naera: I’m not familiar with WC. Is it the same as bathroom?

What is the difference between salle de bain and salle de bains ?

toilettes = toilets (basically where you pee etc…)bathroom = can include the bath/shower, sink, toilet…

“Où sont les toilettes s’il vous plaît ?” 🙂 so use “toilettes”

So we really don’t know what it implies, shower or tub or neither, but sure that it contains a WC.When I lived in the South of France, the WC was in a separate room with a small “lavabo” quite separated from the washroom, which contained a tub (with overhead shower), a bidet and a “double lavabo.

” Since we were an English-German speaking household, we never enquired as to the technical French for the two installations.

Your name or email address: Do you already have an account? No, create an account now. Yes, my password is:

Oh yes salle de douche is used ! What happens when you have two “salles d’eau”, one with an actual bathtub, and one only with a shower ? You call the first one la salle de bains and the second one la salle de douche…
