Design experts suggest creating a design plan around the person or people who will be using a space in order to make it as aesthetically pleasing and efficient as possible. When it comes to designing a bathroom for a teenager, creating a space that reflects their personality, likes and style may be important.
As is the case with any bathroom, it's important to choose a bathroom vanity, bathtub, faucet, shower and toilet that will work well in the room and will meet the primary user's needs. For instance, when choosing a new bathroom vanity for a teen girl, it may be important to choose one that allows for a lot of storage for items such as brushes, make-up, hair products, nail polish and other toiletries.
As many teens will not want their space to look too childish, it's often important to get them involved in choosing items for their new bathroom. Whether they pick an overall theme, a paint color or a shower curtain, most will enjoy having a say in their bathroom's décor.
For those who will not be embarking on a total bathroom renovation, an existing bathroom can be made more teen-friendly by adding extra storage with shelves, baskets and bins, painting the walls and adding decorative accessories.
