The early hour mornings when everyone is once again vying for bathroom space will be here very soon as the school year begins yet again. You may have had it easy this past summer as you woke up before your children and possibly your spouse and had this space to yourself for at least a few minutes every day.
That is all going to change though and before you know it, you will be lucky to spend thirty seconds in your bathroom before someone is barging in looking for the mirror or their toothbrush.
While you can’t do too much about everyone needing to be ready at the same time, you can make some small changes to your bathroom to make it easier for everyone to be in there at the same time.
Here are 3 ideas for your newly remodeled bathroom:
- Increase Space with a New Vanity: A single sink vanity with very little counter space is not going to help anyone during those back to school early morning hours. We recommend installing a larger vanity with two sinks and lots of storage. This will allow everyone to have a place for their belongings and enough space for multiple people brushing their teeth at the same time.
- Add Extra Outlets: We are in a period of time when everything is electronic and that means that toothbrushes, razors, curling irons, hair dryers, and more need to be plugged in. While some of those items only need to be plugged in for a few minutes, the rest need to stay in the outlets for a few hours at a time. Extra outlets will help with this process, so that you or anyone else in your family will not need to worry about trying to use a toothbrush or razor that was accidentally unplugged when it was charging.
- Add Separation: If space allows, you may want to separate your toilet from the rest of your bathroom, by creating a closet type space. This will allow for some privacy as everyone is barging in and out of the bathroom.
A little creativity and a few changes are all that you need to make your bathroom work during this busy time of the year. We recommend that you do them now, so that the first day of school is as calm as your entire summer has been.
