Powder Room Pointer: Be sure to talk to a master plumber. All sorts of obstructions -- joists, ductwork, electrical lines -- lurk behind walls and under floors. Before you site or move a sink or toilet, ask a plumber if you can run pipes through the wall and if your old pipes are up to building code standards.
