Make it Child Friendly 

There are many things that you can do to ensure your bathroom is a safe and enjoyable environment for your children.

  • If your children are at a height where they can reach the taps themselves, you can turn down the high temperature of the hot water directly from your boiler.
  • Thermostatic showers offer precise showering at a regulated temperature to reduce the risk of scalding.
  • Replace glass tumblers with plastic ones, and any bathroom accessories you may purchase try and opt for shatterproof plastic or resin, to avoid breakages.
  • All children like to play in the bath, by opting for toys and accessories that can be easily stored away when they are not in use, this will automatically give a de cluttered feel.
  • A non slip bath mat with suction cups is a good investment not just for children but the whole family.
  • Round off any hard cupboard edges with plastic bumpers, to avoid any child height injuries.


Choosing the Right Bath or Shower

Most families with young children tend to opt for a bath.  Although there are many reasons for having a shower in the family bathroom, a bath is a great choice for the home and offers a much more luxurious experience. Baths provide a bathroom with a focal point, and offer an aesthetic appeal.

A family bathroom can be a very busy environment, whether getting ready for work, school or a night out, having a shower in your bathroom is ideal for all family members and can save allot of time and unnecessary queuing. A showers dimensions are smaller than those of a bath, they are ideal for space saving, perfect for the smaller bathroom and can save you money

Two basins are highly practical if you've got kids, but they're also very fashionable and on the wish list of many prospective future buyers. Double basins add a real sense of luxury and at Drench we have double basins to suit every space. Why not have one basin at child height?

Utilising the height of your bathroom can double, even treble the size of your room. Available in a range of heights, widths and finishes you're sure to find the perfect storage solution at Drench.
