The family bathroom can be a hectic place, to say the least. It’s a space that has to work for everyone, yet it needs to be able to provide for the individual, as well. Creating a family bathroom that meets everyone’s needs can be a challenge, like trying to juggle a thousand things at once.

Yet there are ways that you can turn your dream family bathroom into a reality. Here at The Bathroom Place, we know what works and what doesn’t in a bathroom that may be used by both adults and young children alike. Keep reading for a few tips and tricks from veterans of the bathroom industry on making a family bathroom work for you.

Make It Child-Friendly 

If you’re wanting to create a bathroom that is suitable for little ones, then there are a few things you can do.

Lever Handle Taps – Introducing lever handle taps into your bathroom is a great idea where young children are concerned. Having these installed on your bath and sink provides an easier way for a child to control the temperature of the water, which leads to fewer burns from hot water!

Non-Slip Mat – The bathroom can be a tricky room to navigate sometimes. The water and various shampoos, soaps and lotions can lead to a slippery environment. Having non-slip mats under your kids’ feet will keep them that little bit safer.

Replace Glass – Glass is a material that is often present in a bathroom and if knocked could lead to a nasty accident. Some glass cannot be replaced, like the mirror, for example. But any glass cups or dishes you may use can easily be replaced by plastic ones; you could also replace your glass shower screen with a curtain.

Bath & Shower Winner

A family is no different to another when it comes to its preferences. Whether we’re adults or children, we all have certain things we like over others, right? So, it’s not too ‘out there’ to assume that members of one family may prefer different ways of washing.

Once again, we’re back to the question of whether you’re a bath or shower person. To eliminate family squabbles over whether a shower or bath is the best and to keep everyone happy at bath time, install a bath with a built-in shower. It’s the best of both worlds and makes washing easier and faster for every family member.

Storage Solutions 

More people using a single bathroom means that the risk of clutter is high. When somebody comes to us wanting a new bathroom, one thing that is high on their wishlist is more space. When you’re a family, the more space, the better.

Luckily, there are plenty of storage solutions out there that can give you and your bathroom the space you desire. Here are just a few:

  • Shower caddies
  • Wall-hung cabinets
  • Vanity units
  • Heated towel rail
  • Built-in storage basin

In Conclusion 

Creating a family bathroom that works for everyone is no easy challenge, but there are ways of making it work. Even the trickiest-to-please family members can benefit from a bathroom that includes some of the things we have highlighted in this blog.
