Rub-A-Dub-Dub: Kids’ Bathroom Remodel Ideas

Your kids’ bathroom may not be the top item on the list of spaces in your home to remodel, but improving this room can save a lot of headaches.  Providing adequate clearance for each child to come and go in their daily routines helps alleviate stress in the mornings and makes getting ready for bed a breeze.

These design ideas will help simplify bathroom time — both now and in the future.

Age-Proof Features

If you’re in your forever home, your kids will be doing a lot of growing up in it.  While they may need a stool at the sink now, that will not always be the case.  Keep the height of the vanities at a standard height to ensure that the bathroom will stand the test of time.  A standard toilet height is also important to keep in mind. Additionally, a universal bathroom with standard items will give you return on your investment, should you decide to sell down the road.

Dual Spaces

Your kids most likely have the same schedule, which can make sharing a bathroom difficult.  Double sinks, a toilet room, or a door that separates the shower from the sinks can make life much simpler. When working through a design, make sure you consider what type of storage will be needed in the individual spaces.  Does there need to be a tall cabinet near the shower to house the towels?  Should there be a bank of drawers in-between the double sinks?  Whatever the case, a professional kitchen and bath designer can offer creative suggestions to meet the needs of your family.

Storage in a shared bathroom is extremely important.  To help keep the space organized, use Denver cabinets with custom features.  Roll-out shelves make access to bathroom necessities easy. Also, add a special electrical outlet deep drawer to house hair dryers and curling irons – accessories that will replace the bath-time toys your kids currently use. A medicine cabinet with integrated outlets is great for housing electric toothbrushes, as well as other small, daily-use bath items, in an accessible location.

Bold Colors

While color does not add any particular value to the space, it is an important part of a bath remodel.  Color can be incorporated with paint, tile, and other accessories.  Pick a color that will go with the items that entertain your children now, while allowing for a more mature design as they get older.  Consider gender-neutral hues that will adapt to an ever-changing aesthetic.
