Designing a Functional Bathroom for Kids

When it comes to children’s bathroom spaces, there are a few things you want them to be: functional, organized, and clean. There is nothing worse than a bathroom filled with clutter that has no rhythm or purpose and makes getting ready in the mornings frustrating for parents and littles! When laying out your kids’ bathroom space, having a few smart bathroom pieces can make all the difference in making a morning hassle-free!

An organized space that makes sense will change how your mornings flow. Eliminate frustration by having a system in place that works for both you and your kids! You want to create as much independence as you can, so make everything they need to get ready easily accessible. If you have multiple kids sharing one bathroom you can do this by dedicating a drawer or a bin to each child. Get drawer dividers and neatly lay out things like a toothbrush, toothpaste, hair brush, etc. Your littles will know exactly where all their items are and what they need to do to get ready for the day because it is visible and within reach.

Just because it’s a children’s bathroom doesn’t mean you have to surrender all hope of a pretty design. Kids bathroom or not, you want any space in your home to feel as though it fits with the flow and the design of the rest of your home. Keep in mind that you want the space to grow with your children when choosing the design and hard finishes!

One way to achieve a timeless design is to pick finishes for the bathroom that are true to the style of your home. Strive to make sophisticated choices that will grow with your children over time instead of basing the design choices on temporary interests. This doesn’t mean you have to steer clear of all themes. Bring in elements of personality and interest through decor pieces that are easy to change in a few years. Things like shower curtains, bath mats, towels, tabletop decor, and even a paint color can be swapped out when the time is right.
