When you move out of your family home and into your new home with your new spouse those memories of arguing over the bathroom with your siblings is probably still all too fresh. Living with a different person isn’t easy and sharing the same bathroom has quite a few challenges in store for the two of you. Your first big challenge is overcoming that awkward stage of taking a shower with someone else, using the toilet while someone else is in the same room and for some even brushing their teeth with a partner watching them can be pretty tedious.
It is important to do what you can to transform your casual bathroom into a couples bathroom so you can keep those sibling arguments from slipping into your relationship and ruining your harmony. Here are a few tips for creating the perfect couple’s bathroom even if you don’t have a whole lot of space to work with.
Get a walk in shower enclosure
Walk in shower enclosures are brilliant for couples who love to shower together because you can get any size you like relatively affordable and they can easily be fitted into even the tightest of areas. Choose a bigger shower enclosure so both of you will have plenty of room for grooming and other fun things while you are spending time in a steamy hot shower. Check out these shower enclosure reviews to find the perfect fit for you and the love of your life.
Get an adjustable shower head
Modern shower heads are not just water efficient, they also come in pretty big sizes and many of them are adjustable. You can adjust the force of the stream and the beam size so both of you can enjoy a steady stream of water whenever you are taking a shower together.
His and hers cabinet
It is important to get plenty of storage space for your stuff in the bathroom and to keep his and hers items separate. Your own mirror cabinet and storage space will prevent plenty of arguments about the number of grooming essentials you have, especially if you are someone who loves to self-pamper and try new things.
His and hers shower rack
Hang a large shower rack inside the shower with space for each person’s items. It keeps both of you from cluttering the shower with unnecessary bottles.
His and hers towel
Dry towels can be a pretty big argument amongst couples. Save yourself the frustration, get each one a nice and luxurious towel and mark the towel rack clearly so there will be no confusion.
Stock up on scented candles
A good way to keep the romance alive is by stocking up on some new and fresh scented candles every now and then and by actually using these items on those stressful days when both of you need a break from reality.
Set down clear bathroom rules
Be clear about your bathroom rules such as putting laundry in the bin, drying off the floor and cleaning the loo. Couples have been known to have pretty heated arguments about these basic tasks.
