Bathroom Design for Sharing Families

July 7, 2022

As one of the busiest rooms in the house, shared family bathrooms should be functional and fun-loving. When multiple people are using the same bathroom, you’ll need ample amounts of storage and space. Take a look at these design ideas to make the most of your shared family bathroom.

Utilize Mirrors

Mirrors make spaces feel bigger. Not only do they make a space feel bigger, but they also accommodate multiple people getting ready at the same time. During the morning rush hour, family members can utilize the mirrors for getting ready while other family members use other parts of the bathroom. 


Double Vanities

What’s better than one sink? Two sinks! Opt for a double vanity in your family-shared bathroom to prevent conflict and help household members get ready faster. To optimize space in your bathroom, try installing a corner double vanity. 


Wall Mount Fixtures

If you want to free up more space in your shared bathroom, try wall mounting fixtures. Wall-mounted vanities, holders, and storage will give you the fixtures your bathroom needs while opening up space in the bathroom for you and your household members to move around. More space to move around is important for families who share a bathroom.


Install a One-Level or Low-Profile Shower

For those with a multigenerational household, you need a way to accommodate young kids, yourself, and an older adult. One of the ways you can do that is by installing a one-level or low-profile shower. This type of shower makes getting in and out easy, and you don’t have to worry about anyone falling.


Add Lighting

Having ample amounts of light in the bathroom is important. The bathroom can be a tricky place to navigate, so you’ll want to make sure it has ample amounts of light so that you and your household members can see. You can add lighting to your bathroom by installing windows or lighting fixtures. Even if you have an interior bathroom, you can add natural lighting to your bathroom by installing a skylight. 


Create Zones

When mapping out your bathroom, consider the size and the number of people who will be using it. Once you’ve evaluated your bathroom, create zones. Zone the bathroom with a wet area at one end and the vanity at the other. This will help avoid conflict when people are getting ready.
