｜5 Bath Types in a Share House
Let’s quickly explain the bath situation in a share house… The major point to consider is the type of bath. There are five main types.
１.There is a shared bathtub.
There are many types of shared houses with a relatively small number of people in a single house that have a household bathtub. There are usually 7~8 people sharing one bathtub.
2.There is a shared bathtub and shower room.
This type with a bathtub and two shower rooms is also common in small family share houses. It is recommended as it can satisfy the needs of both those who want to take a bath and those who just want to take a shower as quickly as possible.
3.Only shower rooms are available.
Share houses with only shower rooms are often equipped with a certain number of shower rooms. So, relatively speaking, shower rooms are popular among foreigners who do not have a culture of soaking in shower rooms rather than baths.
4.You have your own bath in your room.
This is a pattern that many condominium-type share houses have a bath attached to the individual rooms. The fact that you have to clean it yourself may be a bit of a bottleneck.
5.There is a large public bath.
Some share houses have a large bathroom in the basement. This type of share house is often found in very large share houses (50~100 people).
｜Bathroom rules and cleaning
Come on. Have you got an idea of the type of bath in a share house? Next, let’s take a look at the rules for the bath. Many share houses allow you to write the time you leave the bath on the shower room door. Especially between 20:00~22:00 after work and 7:00~8:00 before work, it will be crowded, so please use it by giving it over to each other. Do not leave shampoo, conditioner, towels, etc. in the bathtub. Drain the bathtub after use. Rules should be established regarding the amount of time per use and when the bathtub can be used. Even in share houses with cleaning staff, it is not possible to clean the bathtub every time someone takes a bath, so please be considerate.
