4 Tips When Planning a Family Bathroom
Create a space that suits your family's needs
If your home has one shared bathroom, it is important that you take into consideration the needs of everyone using the space. This includes ensuring the safety of the little ones.
Create an efficient and safe space with the help of these tips.
"When building your new bathroom, your first priority is safety," interior designer Peaches de Guzman shares. Install grab bars within the shower area to assist kids and elderly during bath time as well as to avoid any slips. You may also consider having an enclosed water closet for privacy.
"The best layout for a family bathroom is one that has a lot of storage that are easy to reach," Peaches says. Organize your shampoo bottles and tissue papers properly in an easy access shelf under the sink or even inside the medicine cabinet.
