Sharing a bathroom with others can be a major headache if the space isn’t designed with everyone in mind. You risk fighting over counter and storage space, time in the bathroom and other bathroom etiquette blunders.

On the other hand, a carefully planned shared bathroom can help restore the peace among users. Below, we explore common uses for a double vanity or shared bathroom and discuss some ways you can design your space for harmonious cohabitation.

Shared Kids’ Bathroom

Many siblings share a Jack and Jill bathroom that connects their separate bedrooms. Those that are a few years apart may have different styles, and as they grow, their tastes may evolve. To avoid having to constantly redo the bathroom every couple of years, establish a bathroom design that works for all ages. Focusing on safety, accessibility and storage will ensure your bathroom suits your kids from tot to teen years.

Kids’ Bathroom Ideas

  • Fun Theme: A cool theme can show off your kids’ personalities and easily be changed by swapping out accessories. Incorporate the theme into a bath mat, shower curtain, wall decor, and more.
  • Multiple Hooks: Extra towel hooks ensure every kid has a spot to hang their towel, so there’s no excuse for leaving them on the floor.
  • Step Stool: A step stool can help your kids reach the sink safely. Choose one that matches your bathroom’s style to create a unified look.

Couple’s Bathroom

When designing a couple’s bathroom, both partners should be able to go about their normal grooming routines without disrupting the other’s. Features and elements that give each person some privacy and their own space to get ready can help keep everyone happy while providing users with necessary “me” time.

Couple’s Bathroom Ideas

  • Digital Shower System: With DTV Prompt®, you and your partner can enjoy completely personalized shower experiences. Control the timer, the type of sprays and even the water temperature at the press of a button.
  • Double Sink and Mirror: No more wrestling for a spot at the sink to wash, shave or primp. This saves you both precious time during the hectic morning rush.
  • Comfortable Seating: When space allows, add a stool, bench or small chair to your bathroom so you can enjoy each other’s company while getting ready.

Shared Guest Bathroom

Make your guests feel comfortable and pampered with a stylish yet functional shared bathroom. If you host a lot of guests at once, thoughtful design elements that brighten the space or add organization can help the bathroom feel bigger.

Guest Bathroom Ideas

  • Ample Storage: Help your overnight guests stay tidy and clutter-free with plenty of under-the-vanity storage, a lighted medicine cabinet and clever shower accessories.
  • Plush Bath Mat: A stylish bath mat right outside the shower will keep your guests’ feet warm and prevent puddles.
  • Gracious Décor: Liven up your bathroom with a vase of fresh flowers and decorative scented soaps or potpourri.
