Unlike an en suite, the family bathroom must meet the needs of every generation, from mom and dad to teenagers and toddlers.  That’s a lot to cope with, while still being a guest friendly atmosphere.  These tips will help you make the most of your space.



When it comes to a family bath, materials should be selected for durability and ease of cleaning.  These materials need to withstand years of wear and tear, even when subjected to the high energy activity of children.

The Ketho series from Duravit offers furniture that is robust and durable in every aspect. Each furniture component of the series features a protective melamine resin coating and bonded, waterproof edges that can withstand a great deal of splashing around.




In a family bathroom, there’s more to hide than just a few toiletries.  There are medicines, bath toys, and lotions for every family member, so plan to be creative with storage.  Plan for enough cabinets and drawers for toiletries, bulk items and plenty of towels.



Family bathrooms are designed with practicality in mind.  However, that doesn’t mean that it can’t be presentable to guests as well.  Use double-duty elements that are not only decorative, but functional. For example, interesting jars add style to the counter while holding essentials like cotton balls and cotton swabs. Fluffy towels displayed on a shelf are easily accessible to bathers and help to absorb some of the sound in a space filled with hard surfaces.
