Let's face it - kids spend a lot of time in the bathroom doing everything from potty training, bathing, brushing their teeth, washing their hands and even playing. Most parents strive to make their kids' bedrooms and playrooms fun and attractive, so why not put the same effort into their bathrooms?
Creating a bathroom that works well for kids and looks great doesn't have to be difficult. Inspiration can be found in magazines, home improvement stores, on television and even in your little one's favorite activities or bedtime stories. For instance, a sports-loving family may choose an athletic theme for their kids' bathroom, while a family with young kids who love a certain story may choose to decorate their bathroom around the book.
While a theme isn't necessary, how you renovate a bathroom for children will depend on how old they are. After all, you don't want to install kid-sized bathroom fixtures, such as a small toilet, if your child is approaching his or her teenage years!
One thing that is essential for any kids' bathroom is storage. You'll most likely want a bathroom vanity that has plenty of room to store things.
"Put organization in easy to find areas, and easy to reach heights," advises experts from Freshome.com. "Vanity sinks with open shelving below, bath toy storage with suction cup holders, and baskets for toiletries will help kids keep their bathroom clean and tidy."
