Dixon noted that her com­pany’s Retro­fit shower, with ex­posed pip­ing, lets you change out the whole shower if need be with­out break­ing the wall. “It just fits right onto the ex­ist­ing plumb­ing,” she said.

“If the fam­ily gets into a few ba­sic habits like this, the whole ex­pe­ri­ence will be eas­ier for ev­ery­one,” she says.

9. SET THE MOOD

Just pay at­ten­tion to dé­cor as you would any other room in the house,” Dixon said. “Soft celadon, creamy yel­low or pure white with col­or­ful ac­cents give the bath­room more of a spa feel.”

“Also con­sider can­dles and nice lo­tions and hand wash. And flow­ers ac­cen­tu­ate any room in the house,” she says. “Lit­tle lux­u­ries can com­pletely change the feel of a bath­room, and ev­ery­one in the fam­ily will en­joy them.”
