Did you purchase your home before you had kids? Many homeowners plan to have enough space for kids, but they don’t really think about functionality until the kids are a little older. Suddenly they’re fighting over the sink each morning, and their bath toys and products have spilled over the entire bathtub. If this sounds like a typical scene in your bathroom, it may be time to plan a bathroom remodel that will make your kids’ bathroom more kid-friendly. Check out these three tips from Indy Renovation for our favorite ways to make your kids’ bathroom beautiful, easy to use, and functional for years to come.
1. Upgrade to a Double Vanity
A single sink might have done the trick when your kids were young, but if they’re now school-aged and getting ready together each morning, it may be time for a double vanity. Not only is sharing a space chaotic, but it can also add tension to already hectic mornings. By upgrading to a double vanity, your kids will be able to brush their teeth and comb their hair two at a time. This will not only save time but also your sanity on busy school mornings.
2. Customize the Shower
When people hear “custom shower” they often think of the spa-like features homeowners choose for their master bathroom. However, at Indy Renovation, we can also customize a shower that will better fit your kids’ needs. Instead of choosing a standard shower with just a few built-ins for soap and shampoo, why not add a few extra lower cubbies for the kids to store their bath toys where they can reach them. We also recommend a handheld showerhead to make bathing easier, and strategically placed grab bars to prevent slips and falls.
3. Add color
Finally, when it comes to decorating your kids’ bathroom, think carefully about the color scheme you want to use. Young kids might appreciate brightly colored walls and accessories, but they will quickly grow out of it in a year or two. Instead, consider an accent wall with a fun color, and leave the rest neutral so the whole look isn’t overwhelming. Then, find some fun, age-appropriate accessories that are easy to replace in a few years.
