Decorating for children is fun. They love almost anything you do, and you get to change the design again and again to suit them as they grow older. These ten ways to make your bathroom more fun for your kids are sure to bring a smile to your face, too.
1. Bright colors
Bright colors are cheerful and kid-friendly. You can go big with color by painting entire walls or choose one colorful wall design, like your child’s favorite animal. Accent colors can be incorporated, too. A purple sink, a bright red shower curtain, or green and yellow towels and rugs make the perfect, fun accent pieces.
2. Bold patterns
Kids enjoy bold patterns but be careful not to add too much to a small space, you can make the room too busy. Try a bold patterned shower curtain, a rug, and a fun mirror.
3. Make some kid-friendly upgrades
For a few dollars you can incorporate some fun design elements that the kids will love. Replace the knobs on cabinets with bright blue stars, or paint them their own stand alone towel rack. A tub faucet cover can be fun and functional, and a a kid’s size handheld shower is great for rinsing off bubbles..
4. Let the kids help put up decals
Kids love decals and can help with this inexpensive and fun project. Select theme decals like an underwater adventure. Choose from fish, dolphins, whales or turtles.
5. Personalize the space
To make it truly their own, try adding in personalized touches that will kids giggle. Create personalized towels; have the kids paint a clear shower curtain to produce their own design; or let the kids design and repaint the garbage cans or their own cabinets.
6. Hang art just for kids
When it’s not a kids-only bathroom, hang art that kids and adults will love. Look for pieces in an ocean theme, like brightly colored underwear creatures. Or find some fun frames and put up a collection of silly family photos.
7. Kids-only accessories
You can find a lot of accessories that are smart and fun that only the kids need use. Like peg boards. Peg boards are great for storage. Kids can hang towel and bathrobes on large ones; use smaller ones for toothbrushes.
8. Kids DIY design
Kids love to do things for themselves. Add a sensor so lights go on when they enter, off when they leave. Or lower the light switches so little hands can reach.
You can also replace your old faucet with sensory faucets that stream water at a safe temperature and hands-free soap dispensers in cool colors next to the sink. A cute, colorful and sturdy stool can do the job also. Buy two and keep one near the lights, the other by the sink.
9. Kids DIY remodel
If you want to take on a larger project, remodel some parts of the bathroom so that kids can do things for themselves. Put in colorful sinks at their height, a toilet with a colorful, soft-closing seat to protect little fingers and a smaller bowl, and a child-sized tub and shower.
10. Big themes
If your child or children absolutely love one thing, why not create a theme around it for the bathroom? All you need is some imagination and accessories. Start with decals, a few rugs, a shower curtain and towels, and build from there.
These 10 ideas will cheer up your bathroom and make it more fun for your kids. Whatever design you choose, don’t forget to ask the kids what they like.
