Sharing a bathroom with family, especially children, can be a true test of patience. Kids are prone to mess making and typically have a lot of stuff. Here are some of our best tips for a family bathroom renovation, or simply adding ways to make yours more child- friendly.

  1. Make sure your appliances are the right height- Consider lowering countertops and vanities to a lower height. This way, children will be have easy access to the sink, faucet, etc.
  2. Stow away spacing- Kids come with a lot of baggage, and their belongings can easily take over the house, including the bathroom. Opt for a vanity with full cabinets and drawers to keep the clutter hidden. Consider a decorative storage basket to keep extra towels or washcloths.
  3. Flooring- With younger children, it’s important that your picking an appropriate flooring. Opt for non- slip surfaces that are also easy to clean. Textured floor tiling are best for avoiding slips and falls, while ceramic is more durable. Shower and bath floor grips are also a great alternative to ensure your little one doesn’t slip.
  4. Backsplash tile- Kids have a tendency to splash water around while washing their hands and face. A tiled backsplash will protect your wall from getting stained or soggy.
