Creating a family home is never easy. You are going to want to make sure that your home has plenty of space for everyone as well as, still being a stylish space to call your own too.

One particular room that can benefit from some family friendly touches is the bathroom. But how do you make sure that you create a modern family bathroom that is functional as well as stylish?

To inspire you, we have put together 5 modern bathroom trends for family homes.

Double basins

If there is one thing that any family will readily admit, it is that there are just not enough basins in the morning for everyone to get ready. So, why not use bathroom design to resolve this issue? One great idea is to have double basins installed into your bathroom. This means that there is double the space for everyone to get clean and ready. Another alternative to a double basin is to choose a supersize basin instead, as this will do roughly the same job. Make room for a bath

Showers are definitely the preferred choice for many modern bathrooms, but having a bath is something that a family bathroom really benefits from. Some homes are lucky enough to have plenty of space for a bath, which means that they can go for something ornate and stylish. However, if you are worried that you don’t have space for a bath, then you could always look at some of the space-saving options that are available, including corner baths and bath and shower combos.

Always think about storage

One thing that always seems to happen in a family bathroom is that it can all too easily become cluttered and messy, after all, everyone comes with their own accessories and items. It is vitally important that you consider storage within a family bathroom. This could be something straightforward such as a vanity unit with drawers and cabinets underneath. Or you could take a look at some of the less obvious but just as useful options that are available.

Keep it light

Are you a family of early risers? If you are, then one thing that you are definitely going to want to have in mind is that your bathroom needs plenty of light. Many people have a simple light and fan combo that they turn on when they enter the room, but this can be noisy and is not able to be dimmed at all. It is a much better idea, if you can, to install lights that can be dimmed, as well as make sure that windows are big enough to let plenty of light in.

Keep it neat and tidy

Now, we know this isn’t really a design tip, but keeping your modern family bathroom neat and tidy is one of the best things that you can do. We have already mentioned how it is worthwhile choosing plenty of storage, but you should also be encouraging your family to use the storage and do what they can to keep the space neat too.

Your bathroom is one of the most important rooms in your entire home, which means that you will want to do your best to make sure that it not only looks beautiful but that it also is completely functional for you as a family too. This really is the ideal combination.
