8 Tips for a Kid-Friendly Bathroom Remodel

15/03/2017

Bathroom Custom Design Tips Remodeling Suggestions

If you have children, you want your bathroom to be easy and safe for them to use without sacrificing style. Our Devine designers have compiled a variety of ideas to help you create a stylish, yet kid-friendly bathroom that won’t fall out of fashion as your toddlers turn into teenagers.

Spring for Storage Methods with Different Heights

In any shared bathroom there are things children need to have access to, as well as things they shouldn’t be able to reach. To help support accessibility and enforce off-limits areas in your bathroom, try using storage methods that utilize different heights. In other words, use the lower, easier-to-reach drawers for towels, toilet paper, and cotton balls, and the more out-of-reach shelves and cabinets for medicines, razors, and cleaning supplies.

Add a Step Stool

Whether you use a store-bought stool, make one yourself, or opt for a built-in one, adding a step stool to your bathroom makes for a kid-friendly vanity that’s accessible and easy to clean. Making soap, water, and toothbrushes easier to reach for your kids also makes your job as a parent that much easier, which is always a plus.

If you have a need for a step stool in your bathroom, you may want to consider a floating vanity. These are stylish, but also allow for a step stool to slide right underneath and out of sight. Take a look at this recent bathroom remodel we completed for a NE Portland couple expecting their first child featuring a floating modern vanity.

Get Durable!

Choosing durable, easy-to-clean materials and accessories is key to a kid-friendly bathroom. When you have kids, things inevitably break or get dirty. Choosing materials that are specifically meant to handle it all—from spills and stains, to dings and cracks—not only saves you money in the long run, but can keep your child-friendly bathroom looking like new for years to come. Some examples of beautiful, yet kid-friendly bathroom materials include quartz countertops and porcelain tile.


More Kid-Friendly Bathroom Ideas to Ponder

Install hooks instead of a towel bar. When it comes to young children, wall hooks are a bit easier to master, which means you are less likely to end up with towels on the floor. Additionally, towel bars can seem like playground equipment young children. Hooks get the job done, but don’t provide opportunities for play time.


Choose a big sink, as opposed to a double sink. If you have children that are just learning to wash their hands and brush their teeth, a larger sink means that more water will end up in the sink, rather than on the counter. This makes for an easy-to-clean, kid-friendly vanity. A larger sink can even offer a place for a newborn's first baths.


Add wall tile or wainscoting to your kid-friendly bathroom remodel to add an extra level of durability. These surfaces are easier to clean than painted walls, so any spills or messes you encounter can easily be wiped away.


Choose a toilet with a trip lever on the side. Most small children cannot reach the top of the toilet tank. Keeping the trip lever on the side of the tank will ensure that your child won’t have to crawl up onto the seat or tank to flush.

 

Don't overdo it on the kid theme. Needless to say, kids grow up fast and today’s cute, frog-patterned wallpaper may quickly become tomorrow’s eyesore. Add kid-friendly elements through a fun patterned shower curtain, bath mat, or toothbrush holder.


Whether you’re planning to do a large-scale kid-friendly bathroom remodel or to make a few simple adjustments or additions to your current bathroom, there is more than one way to welcome the little ones in and still preserve that timeless look and feel you’re after.
