12 ideas for a family bathroom
When the whole family uses the same bathroom, some amenities are necessary: double basin, shower screen, bath, easy-care floor, XXL storage furniture ... Follow our advice for the family bathroom to be as functional that pleasant to live.
The larger the bathroom, the easier it will be to make it practical for the whole family, for example by separating the children's space from the parents' space. Provide compact and spacious storage so that each person can put his toiletries. If you have room, bet on a double sink and combine shower (time saving and water saving) and bath for comfort or children's bath. Finally, also pay attention to the materials of the floor or the walls which will have to be easy of maintenance: opt for anti-slip tiling and which cleans with a blow of sponge and avoid the glass bowls complicated to clean.
