With the development of conservation strategies and adaptive reuse methods for traditional dwellings, there is a need not only to continue the culture and lifestyle of the inhabitants but also to minimize the impact on the architecture. The design of new sanitary products should be simplified, integrated, easy to assemble, and inexpensive, to meet the dual needs of the preservation of traditional residential architecture and the continuation of residential life. This study proposed an adaptability measurement method that incorporates probabilistic fuzzy set theory for the design and development of a collection of traditional residential sanitary products. The design and development are simplified and integrated according to the degree of adaptability of the sanitary products. Firstly, the types of sanitary products available in Cai-Clan residence are compiled and defined as the target adaptable set (Tp), then the functional structure is decomposed one by one and a functional configuration matrix is established, based on which the matching degree (P) is calculated. Then, a pairwise comparative judgment matrix technique combined with fuzzy theory is used in a focus group discussion to obtain usage probability range (PR) values for bathroom products function (PF). Ultimately, the adaptability formula is used to obtain the adaptable factor (AF) of the sanitary products. Based on the results of the study, 22 pieces of PFs are derived for high and low adaptability values (A). The higher the A value of a certain PF is, the more suitable it will be for design development for simplification or integration as a priority. Therefore, many design solutions can be formulated based on the visualization chart order from high to low, which can be redesigned on top of the original design.
