Install easy-access storage

When a number of people are using a bathroom, there will inevitably be more stuff to accommodate. With children, there’s the added challenge of mixing safe, out-of-reach storage with some they can access easily. Place open shelves or a cupboard at ground level, where kids can take out and tidy away toys or fresh towels. Combine this with higher-level storage for toiletries and medicines that could be unsafe for young children.

Consider your bathing options

If space isn’t an issue, it makes perfect sense to have a separate bath and shower enclosure. You don’t have to compromise on style if you combine the two, a frameless door adds to the streamlined look. Or if you have the space get the best of both worlds with a separate bath and shower area!

Tap into safety

When it comes to choosing taps, go for a single mixer design rather than separate hot and cold fittings. This will help to prevent children scalding themselves by turning on a very hot tap. Lever taps, are ideal, as they’re easy for children to operate. Small hands can pull up the lever and keep it set in a central position.

Make cleaning easy

In a busy household, the bathroom will probably see some wear and tear, so choose surfaces that are easy to keep clean and well maintained. Go for flat-fronted, handless cabinets, so dust and grime doesn’t gather around small details, and opt for wipeable tiles on the walls. Grout has a tendency to show up dirt, so large-scale tiles with minimal joints are a good option.
