Shutoff valves

Hi everybody,
Still planning out the supply to the new bathroom in my basement. Question: Do I have to have a shutoff valve at each fixture or can I put on valve in each line so that I can shut off all the supply to the bathroom from one place? I have a pretty convenient place to put just one set of valves. Thanks!

Code requires a shut-off valve at point of use fixtures such as toilet, lavatory, kitchen sink, water heater, laundry tub, and washer box in the event that if fixtures start to malfunction a normal user has the ability to turn water off to fixture.

Does the valve always shut off for the user? No. Not always. But valves are required for emergency situations.
