There are no rules that obligate you to put on a bathroom sign in your own house. Bathroom door signs are more common in public areas. It meant to help the visitor to know the location of the bathroom and to help them not to get into the wrong bathroom, even though nowadays, more bathrooms are considered as genderless.
But, you may need to put on a sign on your bathroom door when you hold a special event such as a party and invite a lot of people. The sign will help your guest to locate the bathroom easier.
A bathroom door sign may look as fancy as you want or you can keep it simple. One thing you need to know is that you don’t have to make it like in the public bathroom where they have gender signs for each bathroom. You can even make more than just one sign related to the bathroom.

Making a bathroom door sign can be an easy task or it can be a complicated project. You can make it simply by writing a sign on a piece of paper.
