There is more to designing a child-friendly bathroom than just decorating the space. One thing you need to take into account is the wide range of activities that can be done other than taking a bath. Kids, for instance, wash their hands and brush their teeth while in the bathroom. Since it is a multipurpose space, it should have enough storage, easy-to-clean surfaces, sturdy fixtures and accommodations for your little ones.
Add More Storage
Kids have lots of stuff, and their belongings inside the bathroom can make the whole space look cluttered. Focus on adding more storage to reduce scattered toys and other eyesores. As long as you have enough room, get a decorative toy box to store their playthings and other essentials like towels. Make sure there are places to keep everything to ensure a tidy, clean bathroom.
Consider Kid-Friendly Hardware
Entering and exiting the bathroom can be difficult for children. Instead of knobs, choose D-handle drawer pulls and levers as they are easier to grab and pull. Also, forego towel bars, and use towel rings and hooks for washcloths and robes. As kids get older, these can be replaced with a towel bar. These small details are something you can discuss with a local design build firm when planning this project.
Ensure Adequate Lighting
Make sure that the bathroom is well-lit as well. Let natural light in by investing in new windows, which you can install high above the wall. For artificial lighting, consider a lighting system that has an automatic switch that brightens the bulb upon opening the door.
