  3. 3An essential point to bear in mind when designing a family bathroom is to make the most of the space you have. We know that with children storage is important in any part of the house, including the bathroom. Choosing a wall cabinet to save on floor space, or a basin unit with storage available will create storage solutions whilst taking up no more room than necessary. If you plan to keep cleaning products in the bathroom, make sure to find a cabinet that can be locked, or is far enough out of reach.
