Pick a Theme

The great thing about decorating a kid’s bathroom is that you can be more creative and pick bright colors that you’d normally avoid for any other room in your house. You have more liberties and can have a lot more fun –  but don’t go too wild. It is easy for parents to go overboard and make the bathroom look too busy. Be sure to pick a theme and follow through with it. Encourage your kids to contribute and find a theme that is based on his/her favorite Avenger, Disney character, color, sport, pastime, storybook, or TV show. A cool idea is also to use your children’s artwork as centerpieces in their bathroom.

Fun Footstool Designs

The sink will inevitably be too high for your child to reach, but it creates an opportunity for you to get creative with designing the footstool. Turn it into a project and work with your little one to paint a stool together. You can make it match your theme and even add their name to it.

Decorate for the Moment

Your kids will eventually grow out of their bathroom, so concentrate on decorating things that are easily changeable like paint, wall art, towels, and curtains. With the right colors, these items can help accent the bathroom.

Decorating a Safe, Kid-Friendly Bathroom

Not only does the kid’s bathroom have to be kid-approved, but it also has to be mom-approved. The bathroom is a prime area for kids to get hurt, so you should take the following steps to make sure your little one is safe.

  • Provide Enough Lighting: Your little ones need to see what they are doing and where they are going. Without proper lighting, children can miss puddles or other potential hazards on the floor.
  • Consider Your Child’s Height: Remember that your kids are not as tall as you, and when they can’t reach something, they will climb. Be sure to keep bath toys, toiletries, and towels in reach of your child. If you can find a great fogless mirror, it will also prevent children from climbing onto cabinets to try and clean the mirror.
  • Invest In Safety Accessories: Tub mats are important to put in the tub to prevent your child from slipping. You can even get adhesive pads that stick to the bottom of the tub and they come in fun kid’s themes. You should also buy cushioned covers to place over sink faucets so it won’t hurt if your kid hits his head on it. Based on your child’s age you might also want to buy a cover clamp toilet lock which keeps the toilet cover closed to inquisitive children.
