The bathroom is a multipurpose space that should have elements that accommodate not just adults, but also children. The problems is that bathrooms in many households don’t have enough features geared for the little ones, which makes it more challenging for them. Here are some ideas to make your bathroom as child-friendly as possible.
Going in and out of the shower should not be a hassle. When designing your bathroom, consider shower doors that can be easily opened or closed. Alternatively, you can go with a walk-in shower, which does not require any curtains or doors. Or, add a tub, especially if you have smaller children. With this fixture, it is easier for you to help them during bathtime.
Right-Height Work Area
Include in your design-build plans the need to lower the vanity countertop to allow children to reach for the faucet without tiptoeing. Otherwise, you can include a contraption on your existing countertop; a lift-out step where your child can stand. In the future, when he or she doesn’t need to use it, you can convert the bottom of the vanity into a drawer for more storage.
The bathroom can be a spot for accidents for both the young and the old. Installing non-slip floors help prevent such occurrences. Small, textured tiles are a good fit as well as floors with anti-slip finishes. Supplementing them with slide-resistant mats provides further protection against slips and falls.
