Creating the perfect family bathroom is pretty important for a harmonious family home. You use the bathroom every single day, so it needs to be functional, safe, and attractive. Here are a few ideas that could inspire you to start your renovation.
Pick A Relaxing Paint Color
There’s nothing worse than kids not wanting to go to bed (especially when you’ve been looking forward to your own time in the evening). A nice bath in their bedtime routine can work wonders – but so can the color of the bathroom. Colors have certain moods associated with them, so pick a relaxing color like blue or even green.
Pick A Multifunctional Shower Bath
A multifunctional shower bath is great for all tastes and situations, as there’s something for every family member. They can make your bathtimes more relaxing, and children’s bathtimes far easier.
Invest In A Heated Towel Rail
You can find heated towel rails of all sizes, depending on your family size. Heated towel rails are fantastic for cold winter mornings, and especially young kids who hate being cold when they get out of the bath!
Go For A Toilet With A Soft Close Seat
Let’s be real, the sound of the toilet seat slamming shut is quite annoying – and it can wake up sleeping kids and partners. Not only that, it can trap little fingers if accidentally dropped! A toilet with a soft close seat prevents these accidents and prevents general wear and tear. Plus, it’s far easier on the ears.
Choose Waterproof Easy Clean Flooring
Your bathroom is going to be getting a lot of usage, so you need to make sure you have waterproof, easy to clean flooring. It’ll withstand messy kids, sickness bugs, overflowing bathtubs, and pretty much anything else you throw at it. You can even get flooring with antibacterial properties, helping to make your home more hygienic. Some people also like to go for epoxy flooring and similar options – it’s up to you to explore the pros and cons and figure out which is best for your family.
Work On Making Your Family Child Friendly
Make sure you spend some time ensuring you have a total child friendly bathroom. You might want to turn down the water temperature from your boiler, especially if your kids can reach the taps on their own. Replacing glass with plastic, as well as rounding out sharp corners can help. A non slip bath mat is great for the whole family, not just children, and you should obviously ensure that you have any lotions, potions, and medicine locked away in a higher cabinet. Sharp objects should be out of reach, like scissors and toenail clippers. Kids will get into everything, so keep this in mind as you arrange your bathroom and put things away.
Creating the perfect family bathroom is largely down to your family and what you need in a bathroom, but the above advice should help you to create one that you love.
