When you look at the layout of your basic bathroom design, it could definitely use some updating. With dual-career households and busy family schedules, your get-ready space should make it easier for more than one person to get ready at a time.
So let’s borrow some inspiration from those his-and-her bathroom designs in showplace homes to make your shared bathroom an attractive and efficient get-ready space.
Dual sinks are the longtime solution for the his-and-hers bathroom, and if there’s one thing you can do to make your bathroom more family-functional, this is the way to go.
- For a modern take, break up the expanse of a mega-mirror and install two framed mirrors over each sink.
- Give each station its own distinct look. Choose different (but compatible) mirror frames, sink faucets, wall sconces, accessories and drawer pulls. Individualizing these spaces is a smart start to getting organized.
- Add definition to your his-and-hers sink space. In that central space between the two mirrors, install a narrow cabinet with wall shelving. Having plenty of storage on hand is a smart way to keep the spaces neat and “put away.”
If you have the space, a demi wall between the shower and toilet adds privacy and makes getting ready in a rush more comfortable.
Don’t sacrifice your decor by mounting extra towel bars in awkward spaces. Try a polished metal double-towel stand from Better Living. It’s a unique and eye-pleasing way to keep them within reach of your shower door.
In the shower, be on the lookout for tidy solutions to keep everyone’s products and supplies organized and in one place. Wall-mounted dispensers from Better Living for shampoo, shower gel and conditioner are a neat way to contain your family’s products, plus they come with accessory hooks to hang your razors and loofahs.
