How To Create The Perfect Couple’s Bathroom

‘His and hers’ sinks

When you’re in a rush to get ready for work or you’ve got plans to party and are running behind, there’s nothing worse than waiting with a mouthful of toothpaste while your other half has got shaving cream all over the basin. They’re trying to brush their teeth, you’re washing your face; you bend heads at the same time and suddenly you’ve got toothpaste in your hair. It’s not the best situation.

If you and your partner have to get ready at the same time in the morning, but don’t have the luxury of multiple bathrooms, adding in a second basin can be a useful option that will save a lot of hassle. This simple solution will make a world of a difference in those crunch-time moments, and will create a sense of ease and harmony that is sure to eliminate all future (bathroom-related) arguments.

If you’ve got room to play with, consider installing separate units, which gives you the added luxury of your own storage. Alternatively, if you’re looking to make the most of a smaller bathroom, a double basin provides the same peace of mind without overwhelming your space.

Reflect on it

Instead of bending awkwardly or balancing on your toes in order to get a glimpse of yourself in the sliver of mirror that your partner is not commandeering, why not take the separate sinks concept one step further and add another mirror to your bathroom?

Whether you opt for matching styles placed over your separate basins or you indulge your inner celebrity with an illuminated option, a second mirror is a simple and immediate way to relieve the frustration that can arise when competing for bathroom time.

For those who want to maximise a small room, placing a mirror on the back of the door is a space-saving trick that works to make a bathroom seem larger – double benefits!

Get organised, stop squabbling!

 A bathroom should be a place where you can feel relaxed, even if you’re in a bit of a rush. However, it’s hard to be calm when you’re tripping over towels or knocking toothbrushes on the floor. The key to sharing a bathroom with your partner is to keep it neat and tidy for a stress-free environment. One of the main things in the bathroom that can cause arguments between couples is disorganised clutter. ‘Why have you left your shampoo there?’ ‘Why is your towel on the floor?’ ‘Who needs this many face masks?!’ (Okay, that last one might be just me.) Make sure to choose units with plenty of storage space so you can keep everything tucked away and out of sight. If you have space for it, opt for individual storage units so you can each have a place to store all your essentials without getting them mixed up. 

Simple additions can make a huge difference in a small, shared space by helping to keep things organised.  Features, such as a double robe hook or dual toothbrush holders, mean there’s a place for everything in the bathroom – and no excuses for when everything isn’t in its place!

Sharing is caring

While it’s a vital room when it’s time to get ready to leave the house, a bathroom is also a great place to unwind – and it can be romantic too.

In addition to arranging your space so that it’s as functional as possible, don’t miss out on the chance to incorporate features so you can also enjoy your bathroom with your special someone!  When it’s time to get ready to leave the house, a bathroom is also a great place to unwind – and it can be romantic too.

A double ended bath is a luxury item that couples can appreciate together. Because the taps are located in the middle of the bath, a head can rest at either end, making it a perfect place to take a leisurely soak with your loved one.

Alternatively, you can continue to embrace the ‘his and hers bathroom’ approach and integrate two shower heads into a walk-through shower, creating a contemporary sense of design while also keeping things practical. If the space allows, you could even create semi-separate showering areas within one enclosure.
