When designing your bathroom, try to think about how the space may be used in the future as your family expands or grandchildren arrive. Here are our top tips for future-proofing your bathroom design.
Include a bath
Baths are often overlooked, especially if you are trying to save space. A bath can be a great design feature in your bathroom and is very useful when children or grandchildren come along. It’s also wonderful when you want to relax and unwind and is beneficial to have when re-selling your home.
Make queuing for the bathroom a thing of the past by including double basins in the main bathroom. If you have the room, double basins are also a great option in the ensuite so you and your partner don’t get in each other’s way.
Consider adding another bathroom to the mix if you are building a large home. Not only are extra bathrooms handy when you have guests, they are also a practical asset if you have a busy, growing family, and for re-sale.
If you are designing a bathroom for an individual that requires care, there is a range of stylish and practical solutions available that comply with Australian Standards. Think about easy height toilet suites, lever mixer taps, shower rails and hand rails.
