How to Develop a Child-Friendly Bathroom
The bathroom is an essential part of any home, more so if you have kids. Unfortunately it takes effort (and a lot of pleading!) to get the kids to get ready, especially in the morning. That’s why the kids’ bathroom renovation should be tailor-made to their needs.
Tips on How to Create a Child-Friendly Bathroom:
Adding Colorful Stools
Most family bathrooms have counters that are too high for kids. Give the kids a much-needed boost by adding one colorful stool for every sink. You can get wooden stools from your local hardware store for the bathroom. Slap on a cheerful color and you are done! The best thing about having stools in the bathroom? The kids will take a lot faster to get ready in the morning!
Some bathroom items need to be kept away from children’s reach. These items include cleaning supplies, skin care items, and medicine. To create a child-friendly bathroom, develop a smarter storage system. Keep all the dangerous items away from prying fingers. Reserve the lower area of the bathroom storage for your child’s items. Because it is accessible, a child can easily get what he or she needs – things such as towels and toys – without coming across dangerous items.
There are many ways to create a child-friendly bathroom without remodeling the space from scratch. Remember, kids tend to outgrowth things very quickly so that quirky bathroom you have now might not be as appealing within just a few short years. To keep your bathroom design child-friendly without spending a fortune on the design, use replaceable style elements.
Adding colorful accents, such as a cute painting, wall decals, a mini counter, colorful towels and bathroom mats, or even a couple of mason jars, works great for developing a child-friendly bathroom. These items are easily replaceable as your children grow. Once the children are in their teens, you can simply replace these items with accessories fit for grown-ups.
