Universal Design: Family Restrooms

Public family restrooms, sometimes called Unisex restrooms, are becoming more popular as buildings are renovated to keep up with the changing needs of society.

These flexible rooms accommodate two adults comfortably, are big enough for a wheelchair, come with changing tables and afford more privacy than single-gender restrooms.

They solve the dilemma of which bathroom one gender is supposed to use while assisting the other gender, letting a grandfather, for example, assist his young granddaughter without having to narrow their choices to the men’s or women’s bathrooms.

Learn more from The American Restroom.org and watch for one in your airport, train station and department store.
