Family Bathroom Planning

Posted on February 9 2013, Bathroom Design, Bathroom Planning

A few years ago we undertook the design and supply for 6 bathrooms and 2 cloakrooms in a 1930s Beaconsfield home that was being completely updated by our clients.  We are featuring the family bathroom where the brief for their family bathroom was to create a fun bathroom for the children who were both currently under 5, but which adapt with them as they grow up.  Our client was considering child specific sanitaryware but our designer suggested Duravit Darling in a primary colour, at different sizes, which could then be moved to side by side when they had grown.  The bathroom could be accessorised to co-ordinate with the vivid green units, and then once they were older or had moved to other bedrooms with their own en suites, the bathroom can be transformed into a guest bathroom with the use of more neutral accessories.

The main requirements for the space were:

  • – basins at separate heights
  • – fun fresh feel within the space
  • – separate bath and shower
  • – storage and plenty of it for all the fun kids stuff
  • – incorporate a bright colour into the design
Duravit New Darling in Green
Duravit New Darling in Green have the room a bright and zingy appeal and the colour has been picked out in accessories with pink and blue throughout giving a fun feel.

A walk-in shower is ideal for young children and the mosaic floor gives extra grip.
Bright primary colours make a fun bathroom for young children
A Bette steel bath is an ideal and practical solution for a bathroom that will see a great deal of use by a growing family.
Bright coloured accessories store toiletries
Niche areas were created to make plenty of storage space for all those little things that are necessary in a family bathroom.
Shower area with built in niche for use when showering
The shower was specifically chosen so the area could be easily cleaned.
 
The clients are thrilled with the results, and so are the children as during one of the visits to take photographs of the finished bathrooms the children were having a bath and we could hear the gurgles of laughter loud and clear!
