Creating a Family-Friendly Bathroom
In many modern households, sharing a bathroom with children is a part of life. The days of children having their own bathroom is a dream for many parents. With children sharing bathroom spaces comes new challenges for making your space functional, aesthetically pleasing and fun.
Luckily, there are some great ways to create a bathroom that the whole family can share and enjoy.
Children tend to scramble in cabinets looking for what they need. Consider adding a vanity with open shelving space so they easily access their toiletries, bath toys and towels. Adding a corner vanity just for the children is also a great way to keep your bathroom organized.
Mornings usually means everyone in the family getting ready at the same time and vying for time at the sink. Consider installing a double bathroom sink to maximize your bathroom space and save you time. Sink heights are available in standard and adult sizes. An inexpensive step stool is a vital investment to allow your children to use one side of the sink while you use the other.
Accessories are a great way to enhance your family bathroom. From tilt out trays and makeup drawers to added height vanities and linen cabinets, there is something to benefit every member of the family. Mixing and matching accessories to create a space that is as unique as your family, will make the bathroom more functional and enjoyable.

Keeping things organized and accessible for all members of your family is key. Choose design elements for your bathroom now that can accommodate your family as they grow up together in your home.
