6 family friendly bathroom design ideas

Everybody in the home uses the bathroom. From the young to the old, morning or night, the bathroom is where everybody washes, cleans and prepares for a brand-new day, or restful sleep.

Want to know 6 family friendly bathroom design ideas?

Read more from the Perth bathroom renovations company, Navigate Bathrooms to learn what they entail.


  1. Bath design

Free-standing baths are making a comeback in plenty of new bathroom designs and for good reason, too. They provide a simple elegance, but they’re not the most family friendly. First and foremost, free-standing baths can be difficult to clean, with so many surfaces on show.

Consider instead, back-to-wall baths. These bath designs fit flush against the wall and corners, but still embrace the same simple elegance of a free-standing bath, with a curved edge facing the room.


  1. Coloured tapware

No – this doesn’t mean installing painted tapware in a range of bright, bold and quirky colours. We’re talking about straying away from stainless steel to embrace other attractive alternatives.

Why consider coloured tapware?

  • Brushed nickel not only looks gorgeous with its subtle matte finish, but is impressively good at hiding splash marks
  • Gold adds an air of bathroom luxury, and
  • Brass is simply stunning.

There exists an array of coloured tapware options that are making their mark across Perth bathroom renovations.


  1. Handheld showerheads

While rain showerheads are setting the scene for Perth bathroom renovations, there’s a far more family-friendly option to choose from.

That is the trusted, functional excellence of a handheld shower head – perfect for hosing off your kids during shower time.

Getting young kids ready and washed for bedtime can be a struggle for many parents, make it that little bit easier with a handheld showerhead.

Still don’t want to forego the indulgent, natural imitation of a rain showerhead?

With a beautiful bathroom renovation, you can get the best of both worlds by including both types of showerheads.


  1. Swivelling bath spouts

With a swivel bath spout, you’re in control. They make it easy to swivel the spout out of the way of little heads, avoiding nasty bath time head bumps for overzealous little kids.

You, as a parent, will also love this addition if you ever get to enjoy some bath time bliss for yourself!


  1. Epoxy grout

Epoxy grout is the crowd favourite for wet areas, such as showers and bathrooms in general. Why? Because it makes cleaning a breeze.

You can say goodbye to mould and staining, cracking, shrinking and discolouration, too.

This is simply a must for time-poor parents who have better things to do than deep clean their bathroom more than necessary.


  1. Don’t forget the lighting!

There are two types of lighting beneficial to bathrooms: ambient lighting and task lighting. While parents would benefit more from ambient lighting, to relax after a long, hard and testing day, kids benefit more from task lighting.

Bright, LED recessed strips in the bathroom can be a great, stylish way to illuminate the bathroom for all the important tasks like brushing teeth, combing hair and all that bathroom jazz.
