Family-friendly bathroom ideas that suit your routine

18 August 2018

See how you and your family get a great start to your day –
giving you the extra time to reward yourself at the end of it.

There are ways to avoid the bathroom traffic jam. Why not a personalised schedule written on the bathroom tiles?
Avoid shower confusion by letting everyone have a soap dispenser of their own.

Make your mornings personal

A good way to guide sleepy eyes and shave seconds off your schedule is to have fixed, personalised bottles and jars. (Please note that the letters seen here aren’t IKEA products.)

Colour-coded for clarity

Give everyone in the household a specific colour or pattern. Besides the decorative effect, it makes it easier to keep towels separate.

Same procedure here. Individual toothbrush holders avoid both confusion and pleads of ignorance.
Colour matched bathroom textiles ar both practical and decorative.

“Bathroom time is an inevitable part of anyone’s day. Using it cleverly saves you – let alone a whole family – a ton of time.”

Elin Stierna, IKEA interior designer

Everyone gets a box

Getting along in a limited space gets easier with a bit of mobility. Like boxes for everyone. You’ll have everything you need in one place, and it’s easy to bring along between the bathroom’s different stations.

The reward: an evening at the spa

Let your morning bathroom routine have a positive domino effect. Revolving-door efficiency at the start of your day gives you time to transform the same space in the evening. Turn off the lights, turn on some LED block candles, and dive into some serious self-pampering – head or feet first.

We love to see our customers get creative with our products. Go for it! But please note that altering or modifying IKEA products so they can no longer be re-sold or used for their original purpose, means the IKEA commercial guarantees and your right to return the products will be lost.
