The Multigenerational Restroom: Designed for Every Stage of Life
The bath is the most significantly identifiable room in the home to reflect changing habits in different stages of life. As young children are gradually introduced to personal hygiene from teeth brushing to handwashing - their parents in contrast rarely (if ever?) get a moment’s peace in the bathroom - should the moment of peace and quiet present itself, a parent will certainly be multi-tasking while hanging out “in the office”. Teenagers spend all their available free time in front of the mirror during washroom occupation (domination!), while adults and older people enjoy using modern, practical bathroom accessories and convenient personal aids in the loo. All these groups -- regardless of age -- desire bathroom independence, safety, comfort, aesthetic appeal, and maximum individual mobility.
Builders and designers carefully create mindful restroom designs that address the requirements of more than just one age group. Ideally, the bathroom should be designed to suit people of all ages while extending the lifespan of the bathroom by keeping current and future needs in mind. Beyond the expected restroom fixtures required by building code, additional bath items of utmost importance from a multigenerational design perspective include proper lighting, handrails and shower benches for support/stability, ADA compliance, as well as accessible/adjustable shelving in cabinets.
