What are the important design considerations for family bathroom spaces?

When creating a family bathroom space in any home there are a number of important factors to consider. These include:

  • Safety- for family bathrooms, the bathroom design needs to be safe, especially for younger family members. This can be achieved in a number of ways including:
    • Using textured floor tiles to reduce slip especially in the shower or around the bath
    • Reducing hard corners and edges that can be dangerous
    • Choosing a concealed shower with the plumbing is not accessible and there are no hot pipes to contend with
  • Storage- for any bathroom space the storage is incredibly important, and for family bathrooms with potentially more necessary items to store, it is something that just cant be overlooked. From towels to toiletries and cleaning products, you will need a safe space to store a number of common bathroom items. Especially if you want to keep your bathroom looking great, and fully safe for any younger family members.
  • Choosing double sinks- in bathrooms that are large enough, a double sink can be a great way to speed up the bathroom process in the morning. It adds an extra sink so that more than one person can be getting ready at the same time.
