If you’re lucky enough to have several bathrooms in your home, then you have the luxury of not sharing one with your kids. Kids are smelly, dirty critters, so if you want to keep the master bathroom all to yourself, why not? After all, this is your castle!
However, if you are planning to provide your child with a separate bathroom, then you should consider how to design and furnish it. This is a slightly different approach than you would take to design your own bathroom. First and foremost, you must ensure that it is safe for your teen to use the bathroom unsupervised.
In this article, we’ll explore some fun tips on how to create a beautiful bathroom for your little one. A place that is as fun as it is functional! They can work overtime. Maybe your child is in the potty training phase, or maybe they already brush their teeth before bedtime. Regardless, you should design a bathroom that inspires their confidence and sparks their imagination.
1. Scroll for an Interesting Topic
This is where designing a children’s bathroom can be so much fun! If done correctly, you’ll end up secretly wanting to swap with them once you’re done. Start by choosing an interesting topic. It can be anything you choose! Or you can even ask them for some ideas. Our personal favorite is the playful ocean-themed bathroom!
2. Choose the Best Color Scheme
This will go hand in hand with the particular theme you decide to pursue, however, there are no rules about what colors to choose for a children’s bathroom. Explore as many ideas as possible and choose something that appeals to both you and your child. If you’re struggling with ideas, consider reading the psychology of color!
3. Function First
How many children use the bathroom? How can you make their necessities more accessible? Can your child shower independently or do you have to install a bathtub? There’s so much to consider, so take your time before rushing into any final decisions.
4. Simple and Efficient Storage
You need to make sure all their essentials are within reach and easy to access. Also, pay close attention to how much storage space you need. You might not think about it, but you’d be surprised how many kids’ bathroom products you end up owning! The last thing you want is a messy bathroom because they are messy enough.
There are lots of fun and functional laundry hampers and racks to choose from on the market, so browse around the larger stores and you’ll find a wide variety.
5. Think About the Future
Don’t waste your time on any “cute” small bathroom fixtures. After about 5 minutes, your child will be taller than you. Simply investing in a den bathroom stool will be the perfect way to get them to brush their teeth by the sink.
Before proceeding with any purchase, consider when you want to replace it. The same goes for the theme of your bathroom. A neutral theme might be a good idea, especially if they’re going to grow out of rainbows and butterflies.
In any case, you should take your time and have as much fun as possible. You can even try to involve your kids in the whole renovation process as much as possible. This will be a great way to bond while teaching them new lessons!
