Creating a bathroom that meets the requirements of the whole family can be a difficult task to take on and it isn’t always possible to fit in everything that you need, such as a separate shower enclosure and bath. It can also be a challenge to combine practicality and style in a family bathroom too.
Here are some handy tips to help you achieve your perfect family bathroom.
Choose a modern double-ended bath
If you have young children opt for a double-ended bath, which will provide a more stylish and contemporary look to your family bathroom. Double-ended baths feature plenty of bathing space; choose one that hasn’t been pre-drilled with tap holes so you can have wall-mounted bath taps for a neater finish, and they won’t get in the way when washing your kids either.
Bright storage solutions
Including bathroom furniture in your family bathroom will not only ensure of a clutter free space but will help you to be better organised too. A wall-mounted vanity unit will provide a very stylish and practical way to store your toiletries and other essentials out of sight for a clean, minimal appearance. Vanity units are available in a variety of colours and sizes, but for a bright, fun look, which will appeal to kids why not opt for a high gloss red finish?
Enhance a feeling of space
Create a sleek, ultra-modern look to your family bathroom by choosing wall-mounted items such as a toilet and basin, which will help to create a sense of space if you have a small bathroom. Also, a toilet which features a short projection is great for maximising floor space too. If you do have enough space install two basins side by side to add a touch of luxury and to save fighting over who gets to use the basin first.
Your choice of taps can make a big difference to the overall look of your family bathroom as they not only need to be easy for kids to use but should look stylish too. Taps with a lever handle are easy to operate and there are a huge variety of modern designs available.
Keep towels warm & dry
A heated towel rail provides a very practical and modern way to heat your family bathroom as well as ensuring that your towels are kept warm and dry. Heated towel rails are available in a wide range of sizes to suit to every size of family bathroom.
