How To Have A His-and-Hers Bathroom When You Don’t Have Room For One
Small-space dwellers, this one's for you.

On our list of bathroom goals, you’ll find a his-and-hers bathroom situation pretty close to the top. While most small-space dwellers may not have the luxury of a double vanity, we drummed up a few clever hacks that are almost as good as the real thing. Take a look.
Revamp the old.
Browse local thrift shops or flea markets for a chest that can be easily converted into a vanity. This can significantly cut down the cost of investing in dual vanities or a sink cabinet. We’re loving this one designed by Sarah Sherman Samuel.
Plan for extra storage space.
Designate a spot for you.
If you’re stuck with sharing a sink, factor in alternate decorative (yet functional) elements that will be unique to you and your partner. Separate towel hangers, personal mirrors, sconces, and storage baskets are only a few of the ways you can do so.
In lieu of a bulky vanity, opt for a pair of free-standing or wall-mounted sinks instead. We’re taking major style cues from this Oslo bathroom, which manages to seamlessly integrate the dual look in one.
