When you have a family, certain things can sometimes take a back seat, such as the decor of your home. There isn’t always the time to focus on your home that you need to make it an incredible space, which is why so many of us parents end up living with certain areas of our homes in a bit of a mess.
What it’s important to realize is the fact that this doesn’t have to be this way – it is possible to have a gorgeous home and a family, it’s just a case of finding time to create a more beautiful home. Of all the rooms in the house, often the most neglected one in family homes is the bathroom. Why? Because this is the room that is seen as being the least important compared to communal spaces like the living room and kitchen and bedrooms.
However, your bathroom’s decor doesn’t have to take a back seat just because life is busy; it is possible to create a beautiful family bathroom, it’s just a case of getting the inspiration and ideas that you need to do so. To help make the process of decorating your bathroom easier, below are some ideas and suggestions to take note of and implement.
Make storage a priority
One of the most common issues in family bathrooms is the fact that often there is clutter everywhere. From bathtime toys spread across the floor to dirty clothes and towels piled about, family bathrooms can easily get into a mess. That’s why making adequate storage a priority is so important. Built-in storage is the best option when it comes to storage space, as that way the storage is out of the way. However, if built-in storage isn’t an option, then you can always opt to incorporate other storage options. All it takes is a bath toy basket or box, reachable towel hooks for kids, and a laundry basket, and your family bathroom should become a much tidier place. As for storing bath products, an under sink cupboard can be ideal.
Opt for large features
When it comes to the size of your bathroom, the bigger it is, the better. The fact is that the larger a family bathroom is, the better. Because the more sizeable space, the larger features it will fit in, such as a larger bath, which is ideal for bathing more than one child at once. Or a large shower which helps to make washing your child’s hair a little easier. Another fantastic feature that it’s worth adding to your bathroom, or at least considering adding is a bathroom vanity unit below your sink or sinks. Vanities can make amazing additions to bathrooms as they not only look smart and stylish but also offer extra storage space. For a family bathroom, one large sink or multiple sinks is ideal, as this can make face washing and teeth cleaning a much easier process.
Add an accent wall
A simple way to give your bathroom a feeling of luxury is by adding an accent wall. Having one wall wallpapered or stenciled with a unique design can be all it takes to help make your bathroom look and feel more luxurious. Just remember, whatever wallpaper or paint you use, ensure that it is bathroom-friendly. Otherwise, it may peel or bubble. It’s the little details, like this, and features such as the lighting, cupboard, and door handles, and accessories like soap dispensers, that make all of the difference to the look and feel of your bathroom.
There you have it, inspiration and ideas for creating a more beautiful bathroom for your family home.
