To manage the morning rush, Karen Barcoo from Catalano UK shares her top design tips on creating the perfect, functional family bathroom.
Invest in two separate sinks and two matching mirrors, set into a spacious worktop that can hold all your toiletries, toothpaste and bathroom essentials. Or opt for a double basin for a more compact solution, but which will still allow siblings to better negotiate concurrent face-washing, teeth-brushing, and hair-styling.
Choose a basin with an integrated shelf – not only will this give you a quirky, contemporary look, but is a great way to gain additional storage space.
If you have young children, establish a hierarchy with multi-level storage. This keeps personal toiletries or unsafe cosmetics away from curious fingers.
Look for sanitaryware with hygienic properties. Duravit’s HygieneGlaze or Catalano’s Cataglaze ensures the products are easier to clean, and harder for germs to colonize on – helping prevent those contagious family colds.
