Jack and Jill Bathrooms

What is a Jack and Jill Bathroom?

Traditional bathrooms typically have just one entrance, and are designed for just one person. A Jack-and-Jill bathroom has amenities for multiple people. It's a bathroom designed to be shared in a home.

There are usually two sinks and a separate toilet room, so the residents and guests can continue to enjoy privacy without creating a bottleneck.

Benefits of a Jack and Jill Bathroom

For families with multiple kids, a Jack-and-Jill bathroom provides an innovative solution to a couple different problems.

Firstly, it's a great way to save space in a custom floor plan. This means the overall plan is more affordable. Houses with Jack-and-Jill bathrooms typically cost less than houses with twice as many bathrooms.

It also means it is more efficient with space and utilities. The added sink and amenities means it's more convenient and manages to provide greater space while also saving space. And all of this together gives greater value to the home once it is built.

More importantly, a Jack-and-Jill bathroom can help streamline the morning and nighttime routines. Multiple sinks and other features designed to make it possible for more than one person at a time will have use of the space. Kids can take their own time when they have their own sink and mirror space both before school and before bed.

Accessibility is opened with most Jack-and-Jill bathrooms. Often they will have two entrances, each to an adjoining bedroom. Sometimes they may have one entrance to a bedroom and one to a shared hallway.

Effectively, a Jack-and-Jill bathroom is like having two bathrooms in the same space.

Most houses with Jack and Jill bathrooms also have an additional powder room or three-quarters bathroom for guests when company is over. These smaller guest bathrooms are easier to clean and maintain, helping take stress out of preparing for company!
