If your family shares a single bathroom, you can attest to how hard it is to please everyone. To keep the peace, compromising becomes second nature—from timing your visits around the morning rush to showering at light-speed to leave hot water for the next occupant.

Fortunately, there are ways to design your shower space to meet the whole family’s needs, considering all ages, abilities and routines. Help create a better shower experience for everyone with our 4 tips below.

Four Ways to Create a More Family-Friendly Bathroom


Put Safety First

With all the foot traffic to and from your shower, the floor may become wet and slippery. An accessible shower design can give you and your family peace of mind. If you are looking for a walk-in solution to replace your bathtub, the KOHLER® LuxStone shower offers a low entry shower pan to prevent water from escaping onto the floor. Accessories such as the Shower Barre and the Moveable Seat provide extra stability as you enter and exit the shower space. As an extra precaution, you can add a non-slip bath mat to prevent accidents.


Personalize the Experience

Instead of compromising, seek to customize. Make your shower work for you by incorporating versatile hardware that will accommodate everyone. Take for example, showerheads. You’ll gain a greater degree of control over your shower experience with one that’s multifunctional and adjustable. Explore our faucets and learn how to pick the right showerhead for your family.

Design Tip:

A shower column (like the HydroRail®-S Shower Column Kit with Awaken®) offers the most flexibility because it includes a handshower with a slidebar to adjust the height and offers multiple spray functions. Each family member can easily adapt the settings to create their own unique shower experience.


Manage the Clutter

Duplicate bath products are inevitable when you share a bathroom. Chances are they’ve taken over your shower, leaving behind a mess. Contain the chaos with additional storage options such as the Shower Locker, Floating Shelf and Shower Barre. The Shower Locker® is especially useful with its moveable shelves, which allow you to organize all those bottles and scrubs exactly the way you wish. Now, you can offer your children their own storage area and a way to stay tidy!

The Kohler Shower Locker is a shelving system that can be installed in the Kohler LuxStone Shower to safely store your shower supplies.


Clean with Ease

Your shower’s job is to keep you clean, not the other way around. Unfortunately, a family shower typically requires a considerable amount of upkeep due to its constant use. For a more manageable cleaning routine, you need a shower that’s designed to be durable and low-maintenance. The LuxStone® shower meets this demand. Its shower walls are made of nonporous material without seams or grout to scrub, which makes them easier to clean than tile, fiberglass and acrylic. Enjoy a sparkling shower for longer.
