Designing a kid's bathroom you can use as the child grows up

Now that you've moved into your first house and you're ready to start a family, planning out the nursery isn't the only place where your home could use a few child-friendly improvements. If you plan on keeping a bathroom separate for your kids, there are a few bathroom accessories you should look into to make the space more inviting.

A changing table is a wonderful option that you can use for the first few years of your child's life. There are countless collapsible designs that you can utilize to save space. As your son or daughter grows up, you can simply fill the space left over with a linen cabinet or a side table to improve storage.

If you're planning on having more than one child, incorporating a two-sink bathroom vanity may be a wise choice to get out of the way. This will give your kids their own areas to store their toiletries and will prevent any fights over the bathroom in the future.

Decorating a child's bathroom is a delicate balancing act, but it can come together beautifully with a clear idea in mind. What tips do you have for new parents designing a child's bathroom?
