Whether struggling through potty training, battling bath time or trying to convince your little one to brush their teeth, the bathroom can often be a source of stress for kids — and their parents. But here’s the good news: it doesn’t have to be that way! In fact, by consciously making a few fun décor choices, you can turn your child’s bathroom into a playful spot where they’ll love to spend time.
Here are our five best ideas for kid-friendly bathroom design:
Incorporate a personalized step stool
Children love to feel like they can do it themselves. A personalized step stool they can easily maneuver can provide bathroom freedom and independence that makes certain sink-reaching tasks more pleasant for everyone involved. Look for a fun color scheme, customize with your child’s name or find a stool that features their favorite character for extra motivation.
Embrace whimsical lighting
With the right lighting, your child’s bathroom can easily turn into a fun, adventurous oasis. String funky lights around the ceiling, swap out your old light fixture for something colorful or incorporate an easy-on lantern they can operate themselves for a spooky and exploratory feel.
Go big on color
Nothing says “this is a place for kids” more than bright, bold color choices. While wall paint and shower curtains are obvious choices, don’t be afraid to utilize color in less expected places — like in floor tiles or even cabinet finish.
Make the boring more fun
Every day items like a bathmat, toothbrush holder or soap pump don’t have to be uninspired. These days, you can find fun bathroom trinkets featuring just about any favorite animal, character or theme your child likes. Better yet? Let them choose so they feel involved in the decorating process.
Utilize mirror decals
Dress up your bathroom mirror with easy to peel off stickers or decals for a touch of personality that is adaptable as your child’s interests change. One month they may want rocket ships and space decals; they next month they might be all about unicorns and rainbows. Keep it fresh and fun to create a bathroom atmosphere that can reflect their every mood.
After all, who ever said a bathroom couldn’t be whimsical? With these decorating ideas, you can give your children the bathroom of their wildest dreams.
