Bathroom twinning: why you’ll be seeing double

Bathroom twinning: why you’ll be seeing double

When the saying “two heads are better than one” was first used, they probably weren’t talking about shower heads. However, when it comes to giving your bathroom a fresh, inspiring renovation or selecting tapware for a brand new build, doubling up can add luxury and practicality. There are plenty of reasons to get twinning - here are just a few of our favourites!

It’s practical and saves time

Whether it’s a double shower, double vanity or even both, it can be a more efficient way of living. From couples with busy, conflicting schedules to families where children’s sport and social calendars rule the household, you’ll get more faces washed, more teeth cleaned and be out the door on the way to the next appointment on the list in no time.

You can indulge in a bit of luxury

Sometimes a little luxury goes a long way. If you enjoy your own bathroom ritual, with your own personal space and surrounded by your favourite lotions, potions and accessories, a dual vanity or shower can help you enjoy just that, regardless of household schedules. Take advantage and enjoy a double shower on your own, or just think of all the problems you and your partner can solve over a soothing joint shower! They say sharing is caring, but ‘his and hers’ shower and basin options give you the freedom to make a shared space your own.

It can take your design to another level

Aside from being a great way to incorporate your own personal touch into a shared space, doubling your tapware options also makes great design sense, adding both luxury and symmetry. In larger bathrooms, a double basin vanity can be the perfect way to make good use of space, while a dual shower with side-by-side or end-to-end tapware will make you the envy of all your friends.

Or keep it simple

If you don’t quite have the space for a full double shower, you can still indulge with tapware from our twin shower range. Designed to be both stylish and compact, they also come in a wide range of classic and contemporary finishes like chrome, matte black, brushed nickel, gun metal and brushed gold.

Mix it up a little more
Another smart option is to combine an overhead shower – fixed to the wall or ceiling – with a lower mounted handheld shower for that extra practical edge. Not only can it make cleaning those hard to reach places easier, it makes a handy shower option if you’ve got little ones.

When you’re doubling down on your bathroom tapware, keeping it simple is great advice. Look for sleek, simple tapware, showers and accessories that won’t overpower each space if used in a pair.
