That’s a great question. One I can’t answer without sounding completely out of touch seeing as I don’t have kids.
What I can do is show you a layout for a bathroom that the kids share. They each get their own sink, and there is still privacy in the toilet area in case one absolutely can not wait for the other to finish using the bathroom before needing to brush their teeth…or wash their hands…or floss (see? I have no idea what kids do).
I hope this layout gives you some inspiration for your future dream home!
There’s been a bit of a trend these days to have the master bedroom ensuite and walk-in closet directly connected. As in, you have to go through one to get to another.
Here’s why that grinds my gears:
If you have the closet only accessible from the ensuite, if someone is in the bathroom dropping a doozy in the toity, you can’t even go in to grab a sweater…unless you have the kind of relationship where privacy while deucing isn’t a requirement.
I’m firmly in the camp of having a small landing/hallway that leads you to both rooms separately.
This way you don’t have too many doors using up wall space in your bedroom, and the ensuite and walk-in closet are still close to each other for easy access.
This downsizing couple wanted to keep style in their farmhouse without too much floor area (which needs cleaning and maintenance!). We created this craftsman-inspired home with carport to suit all of their needs.
