Bathroom time in the morning has been a source of contention for many a household. With limited time to get up, get ready, and get out the door, it can be difficult to make sure each person in the family has enough time to use the bathroom. And we all know every family has that one person who doesn’t know the meaning of hurry! Therefore, today, we will try to understand one particular type of bathroom layout which might solve all your problems. We will begin by answering the question — what is a Jack and Jill bathroom?

What Is A Jack And Jill Bathroom?

It is a bathroom shared between two bedrooms (or other rooms) with doors and a lock on both sides. Therefore, it opens up the possibilities for time management in families. It often has separate sinks, but users share the bath/shower and toilet area.

They Save Space and Money

Rather than build multiple bathrooms to accommodate multiple bedrooms, a Jack and Jill bathroom can serve two bedrooms at once. If you’re considering a remodel to create more bathrooms, it shall provide the access and accommodations you need without building a whole new space. You can often turn an existing bathroom into a Jack and Jill floor plan.
