Bathroom Design For Kids

How to Design the Best Bathroom for your Kids

If you’re a mom, you want to give your child the world in every way, shape, and form. Whether it’s whipping up their favorite meal or folding their clothes just the way they like them to be, a mother is always working to create the best life for their child.

This desire to please doesn’t stop there. Many moms choose to renovate their homes to accommodate the needs of their children. If you are one of those moms who wants to optimize their home for their child, start with the bathroom! It’s easy to do and possible on a variety of budgets. Contrary to what many people think, it doesn’t take much to create a fun and functional bathroom for your child. Discover how you can make a bathroom your child will enjoy and keep your sanity at the same time!

  • Go with a neutral theme. When designing a bathroom for children, you may think that you have to incorporate a theme. Some people may choose to go that route, but consider this – children grow in the blink of an eye, and you won’t want to be re-doing your bathroom with every birthday. By choosing neutral wall colors and bathroom fixtures, you’re left with more freedom to play with color, texture, and design through bathroom accessories. Durable, low maintenance cabinetry and bathroom fixtures will look elegant and you won’t have to replace them as your child ages.
  • Spice it up with bathroom accessories. We all know personal hygiene can be a bore. By incorporating fun and exciting bathroom accessories, you’ll help your kids learn to love taking care of themselves. Have your kids choose a fun color for their towels or a themed shower curtain. Create a harmonized look by pairing the color or theme of their choice with a matching soap dispenser, toothbrush holder, and cup. Play with textures and patterns to create a unique, stylized, and fun bathroom space.
  • Consider children’s growth. While they’re young, your kids will probably need a step stool to reach the bathroom countertop and sink. Find a colorful or themed step stool your child enjoys, and store it under the sink or next to the toilet for easy access. As your child grows, they’ll no longer need the step stool, and you can replace it with bathroom accessories more suitable to their age, like a trash can or laundry hamper.
  • Storage is key. Kids require a lot of toys, soaps, and other accessories in the bathroom. In order to accommodate for all of those things without having your bathroom appearing cluttered, storage is a must. A vanity with built-in drawers or a shelving unit over your toilet can store bulkier items like towels, spare toiletries, and bath toys. For smaller items, consider a medicine cabinet above the sink.
  • Make everything easy to use. Consider the handles on drawers, cabinets, and faucets. Are they easy for your children to use? Often, children have a hard time with round knobs, particularly when their hands are wet and soapy. Make their lives easier by installing easy-to-grip handles on drawers and faucets. Another thing to consider is towel storage. If children can’t reach the towel bar you’ve installed, a wet towel will most likely end up on the bathroom floor. Instead, opt for towel rings that are easier to reach. As your children grow, you can replace these towel rings with a more decorative towel bar or over-the-door hanger.
  • Create a safe space. Overall, you want your bathroom to be a safe place for your child to participate in personal hygiene. If you’re looking into new tile flooring, test it first to see how slippery it’s going to be when it gets wet. If you’re working with existing flooring that is slippery, lay down a few decorative carpets or bathmats to help avoid slips. If you have young children, be sure to “baby-proof” any cabinets and drawers you want them staying out of.
