The ‘his and hers’ island bathroom

10 September 2016

For such a personal space, bathroom’s tend to follow a pretty standard design. But who’s to say it has to stay that way? This ‘his and hers’ personalised island bathroom might just be the change you’re looking for.

An island bathroom might bring up some tropical feelings, but in this case interior designer Mia explains she wanted to build a bathroom island with matching sinks and cabinets so two people to can use it at the same time. We like how it uses a part of the room that’s often overlooked, ironically right in the middle.

Hopping over to the ‘his’ side, Mia’s made a set-up purpose-built for beard grooming along with regular bathroom activities. To do that she’s included a trolley to hold shaving supplies that are fancy enough for showing off and drawer organisation for the items that aren’t.

Over on the ‘her’ side, Mia added a grooming station with a sit down space for make-up and hair complete with a good light and plenty of mirrors.

Next to the sit down grooming station there’s a full length mirror for final adjustments and hanging storage for hair dryers and other grooming tools. There you have it. What do you think of the island bathroom?
