Building Your Dream Shared Bathroom
You just moved in with your life partner, everything has been good since you started dating, and suddenly there’s a bump in the relationship— your bathroom schedules clash. You feel your relationship spiraling out of control, why didn’t you get a bathroom with TWO SINKS. It’s okay, take a deep breath. Homestead Remodeling can help you build your dream shared bathroom anywhere in the Twin Cities in Minnesota.
Bathrooms come in all shapes and sizes, and people’s schedules & grooming needs also vary drastically. If your master bathroom or family bathroom is large enough, Let Homestead Remodeling and Consulting design a bathroom that’s both comfortable and stylish for two people to use at once. You won’t have to wait for your “turn” again.
Enough storage is critical. If it’s a husband and wife or 2 teens sharing the same bathroom, you should have enough room to keep your toiletries either out of sight or comfortably placed on the countertop without fear of it getting too messy.
When building your dream bath, we take all your storage needs into consideration to ensure there’s enough space for both of you. We also focus on the amount of towel racks to ensure there will always be a towel at hand.
You might think that lighting isn’t important for a shared bathroom, however, it is key to not only making the bathroom welcoming but also being bright enough for two people to use the sinks without worrying about standing on the side with no light. Separate mirrors over the sinks are always a nice touch and can also make getting ready together less distracting and gives a clearer line of space division.
We mentioned sinks in the last paragraph, and this is a no-brainer. A double-sink vanity is a practical feature for large families, or for a working couple whose morning routine would be vastly improved without the daily flip-flop at a single sink. I know I’ve clashed with my partner on multiple occasions causing either one of us to be late to our meetings.
There should be a maximum run of 30 inches between the centers of the two basins. This will allow you to tie the two sinks together with a single waste line. However, separate traps and drains are usually required if the vanity contains a stack of full-length drawers between the basins because the pipes are blocked by the drawer boxes. For a trendier look try basins with wall-mounted faucets.
With so many options in showers available today- if space is available- you can opt to have a large shower installed with many shower heads so two can shower at once. Add a bench to the tile and have a relaxing conversation in the steam.
