JACK AND JILL bathrooms… or Jack ‘n Jill bathrooms were a design that saved space by letting two users, or sets of users, have their own toilet and sink — and share the tub. Here, it’s called a 2-1/2 bath. A famous Jack ‘n Jill bathroom: The one shared by the Brady Bunch kids.


Susan writes:

“The Jack and Jill was to be the bathroom of the future! Many of the homes in our neighborhood have them (or had them. People tend to redo them). The bigger, more narrow side of the bathroom is the guest bath which is accessible from the hallway. The smaller one is attached to the master bedroom. We are pretty sure the star burst light fixtures are original. The tile is in sad shape but we think a good professional cleaning and sealing will make it almost new again.”

    Will see what I can do as far as pics, it’s been partially, and crudely, remodeled and some of the fixtures are not original. There is every indication that it was once a “Pink Bathroom” given the color of a couple of the walls.

    The house is a very open design, with a large open living room, with a full window wall facing patio and back yard. We are looking for ideas/suggestions for restoring the kitchen and bathroom to a more original condition.

    That photo is almost exactly like my bathroom! Same sliding shower doors and tile! We are getting ready to renovate our home and i was searching for some bathroom ideas. I was hoping to turn it into one big bath and leave the two entrances. Everyone loves our retro bath, maybe we should just restore it.
