Great Remodeling Ideas for Your Child's Bathroom

When it's time to make a bathroom into a terrific room for children, it's equally important to consider safety, accessibility and of course, fun! Encouraging them to enjoy their bath and get-ready time is much easier when using colorful, happy décor.

Begin by thinking about the colors your child loves and the themes they enjoy. If you have more than one child who will share a bath, consider letting each choose a color, or one choose the color and another a theme. Additionally, putting in a double vanity or two sinks will make their bathroom time twice as quick and easy. The perfect solution would be DECOLAV’s COUNTRYSIDE® 60 Inch Vanity with Granite Countertop. Next, consider how to use these elements, in ways that can be easily changed as your children grow and their tastes change. Incorporating simple items such as towels and a shower curtain, or paint and hardware can do the trick. Adding a youthful or brightly colored frame around a mirror will even make toothbrushing more fun.

Small feet can slip easily on larger tiles, so using small tiles with lots of grout lines can reduce the danger. Drain and faucet covers are important safety features to add so kids don't hurt themselves on sharp metal edges or accidentally turn on hot water.

Adjustable shower heads can be lowered for small children and raised as they grow. Make sure to put low towel bars or hooks within easy reach for them to hang towels. A wall mounted sink allows room for a step stool underneath it, or install a pop-out step under the vanity. Use sinks with deep basins to help prevent sloshes and splashes, like DECOLAV's Matt Muenster Exclusive Collection 14107-CWH. Keep toiletries organized, out of sight, and easily accessible with drawers under the vanity.

A little planning with these simple ideas can help your child be more self-sufficient and increase their confidence. Turning bath routines into something they can look forward to in their own special spaces, will surely provide more joy and less stress for everyone.
