Surviving a One-Bathroom Home: 3 Quick Tips

There’s nothing like sharing one bathroom to test your patience and the limits of your love for your family. In fact, you’ve probably fought the urge to ship off family members more than once just to get a bit of peace and quiet! Our expert bathroom remodeling contractors have a few ideas to save your sanity.

  1. Be Mindful of Each Other’s Schedules

To ease bathroom congestion in the morning, stagger wake up times so each person has enough time to use the bathroom. Also, designate the bathroom as strictly for bathroom-only tasks — no putting on makeup or styling hair. This will get family members out of the bathroom faster because much of what they need to do to get ready can be done in other parts of the house.

  1. Consider Evening Showers

Mornings are typically hectic, so leisurely time for showers and baths is not feasible. If you want to have more time to shower or simply want a more relaxed atmosphere, consider taking your showers at night whenever possible. This will also reduce the time you have to spend in the bathroom in the morning, freeing it up for other people in the home.

  1. Provide Storage for Everyone

When everyone has what they need, they are likely to finish getting ready sooner. Depending on how big your bathroom is, this could mean providing everyone with their own storage space on a bathroom shelf or counter, or providing everyone with individual portable cubbies to put their toiletries in.

If you’ve tried all the tips and nothing’s working to ease the stress of sharing one bathroom, maybe it’s time to consider a room conversion or bathroom addition.
