Sunken slabs in bathrooms:

Using Sunken slabs in bathrooms is not an disadvantage. You can go ahead with that.
Just remember to perform water proofing for bath rooms.

With this kind of sunken slab construction you can reduce the height of the bathroom. so that it will be easy for old-age people.
In case if you are constructing a bathroom on normal roof, after waterproofing it will become 7-8 inch height  With Sunken slabs you can easily avoid this situation.
