Planning a family bathroom?
By understanding the needs of your household, you can design a bathroom that’s perfect for every member.
Here are some top tips to get you going.
WHERE TO START
Check out local firm Rugby Tile & Bathroom Centre to identify your bathroom style. You will find options that meet your needs and bathroom furniture that will make the space work well.
HOW TO KEEP THINGS SAFE FOR LITTLE ONES
Fitted bathroom furniture is an ideal storage idea in a space that’s used by little ones. Sleekly integrating your basin and toilet, fitted units have a seamless look and feel, and maximise the available space. The combination of high and low-level storage makes it a great choice for families with children - store bath toys and toothbrushes on lower levels and keep razors and cleaning products on higher shelves.
HOW ABOUT OLDER RELATIVES?
Go for electric-powered smart showers which you can use to control all aspects of your showering experience, including water flow and temperature. With some showers you can also set a maximum temperature, so there’s no danger of
accidental scalding. You can also keep an eye on your
water consumption by setting the shower to run
at a lower pressure and a shorter duration.
HOW TO FIT IT ALL IN
A shower bath is a great choice for family bathrooms, especially when there isn’t a room for a separate bath and shower. Hand-held shower heads in baths are perfect for washing the children’s hair. And don’t forget the room is yours too, so choose a bath you’ll love to soak in when you finally manage to catch some ‘me time’.
