So, you are going to be the designer of a child's bathroom. Designing a child's bathroom can be a great deal of fun, as anything goes in a child's bath. You can pick a theme that reflects the child's age and interests. Is he or she a baby, a toddler or older? What is the favorite movie of the day?
You can get ideas from towels bedding and accessories at local toy stores or bed and bath shops. Fabric stores can also give you an inspiration for a color scheme, pattern and ideas associated with different themes.
If more than one child is going to use the bathroom, you may want to look for a design that will satisfy all of the children or at least will please them for as long as possible.
Children do not seem to outgrow the animal themes as quickly as the superheroes. If there is both a boy and a girl using the space, you may want to steer away from pink and blue and look for designs that use the primary colors.
If the child or children are older, you may want to get them involved in the designing process. This could be a learning experience for them. You can teach them about shapes, colors and sizes. They can give you an idea of their favorite colors, which you could use as accents; however, it is best to keep the larger pieces basic as, keep in mind, children do grow. For example, you may not want to have a whole wall of Minnie Mouse wall tile; it could be a major turn off in a few years.
If the space is small, you may want to investigate small bathtubs such as the small clawfoot acrylic bathtubs or the corner bathtub. Adding a Mickey Mouse faucet will surely please a Disney fan.
Designate different areas for different tasks and ensure everything the child needs is readily reachable. For the tub, hang mesh bags for bath toys and keep necessities like soap, toothpaste, and toothbrushes within reach. Of course, if you are potty training, there are specialized seats and training accessories available.Accessories in the bathroom should be age-appropriate. For example, you may want an automatic faucet for the sink as it will be right for any age. And, the best thing about accents is that they are easily and usually inexpensively changed as the child ages or acquires different interests.
