Umina Beach – Bathroom

The brief

To design a family bathroom for a family for 5 children ageing between newborn and 16. This bathroom will also couple as a guest bathroom, so design attention needs to be paid into controlling the bathroom chaos that is normally associated with 5 children.

The solution

  • Clean simple lines and finishes
  • A large family bath with space on the side. This space serves 2 purposes; an area to sit for the parent whilst their younger children bath, and as the children get older an area for their bath toys to sit.
  • The wall mounted tall storage cupboard houses a shelf and basket for each child to hold their own bathroom amenities. The vanity bowl deliberately fills the majority of the vanity surface area so that the baskets are left in the cupboard and not left lying around the sink area. This ensures the bathroom is always clean and presentable for guests
  • There are no towel hooks in the bathroom as each child has a towel hook on the back of their bedroom doors. This also ensures the bathroom is always clean and presentable for guests.
