His and Hers Bathroom Design – What to Include
Moving into your first home together is an exciting time. It’s only natural that you will want to put your own stamp on the place. For many couples moving in together for the first time it can be a testing time in the relationship. Learning to share the space you live in with another person and getting used to their little quirks but decorating your home together can be a real way to cement your relationship and grow closer.
If you are fortunate enough to have a larger bathroom in your new home, then you may even consider the idea of having a his and hers bathroom. Here are top suggestions on things you might want to include in your dream bathroom.
Double up on some things
Having two sinks can be a great time saver in the morning. Don’t think that you need to have large sinks, however, this could appear too overpowering even in a large bathroom opt instead for smaller sinks in a sleek design that will really help to create the perfect modern bathroom. Don’t forget that all important storage either and opt for his and hers bathroom cabinets with mirrored fronts of course so that there are no arguments about stealing each other’s products.
To go with your double basins don’t forget to add two towel rails to avoid those arguments about who didn’t put things back where they should be.
Pick a neutral main colour scheme for your bathroom, if you want to add splashes of your preferred colours then use them to add accessories such as towels. If you want to add colour in the rest of the room, then compile a list of colours you both like and decide on the best ones to customise your bathroom.
Separate the washing facilities
Don’t opt for an over the bath shower, instead chose a separate shower cubicle and bath. This will give options for both people to get ready at the same time without getting under each other’s feet; an important factor that is certainly worth considering if you both have hectic schedules in the morning. If you don’t have the space for separate bath and shower facilities, then a double shower could provide a very practical alternative.
It takes time….
Sharing a bathroom can be a great idea but careful planning needs to be considered in order to make sure that both parties are completely happy with the arrangements. Ample and separate storage space is a must.
Don’t expect everything to fall into place straightaway when you have a his and hers bathroom, like any other aspect of a relationship this is something that you will probably need to work on. After all the last time you shared a bathroom with anyone you were probably just a child and your biggest worry was whether whose turn it was to go first in the bath and how many rubber ducks you could hide from your sibling!
