Creating a Kid Friendly Bathroom

March 24, 2017

Remodeling your bathroom can be both exciting and stressful. There are many things to take into consideration when planning a remodel. If your child(ren) will be using the bathroom, here are some things to keep in mind.

Short Vanity

Large, fancy vanities may seem luxurious, but for your child’s bathroom they can present complications. If you have young children, it may be wiser to have your Baltimore bathroom remodeling company install a shorter vanity for easy accessibility. Shorter vanities allow children to use the sink for handwashing and teeth brushing more easily than larger vanities.

Step Stools

All seasoned parents know the value of a good step stool in the bathroom. When teaching kids to be independent, it is important to provide them with the tools they need. Adding step stools to your bathroom will allow your child to use the toilet and sink more easily, and without your help.

Kid’s Cubby for Toys

Many parents know the struggle of toys in the bathtub. In most homes, bath toys overflow in the tub, leaving a disorganized, cluttered bathroom. By including built-in shelving in the bath/shower or bathroom walls, you can create a “home” for these toys so the bathroom feels more organized. And as a bonus, that built in shelving can be re-purposed and used to store toiletries when the kids outgrow their toys.

Easy Entry/Exit in the Bath or Shower

When designing your remodel and selecting fixtures for your bathroom, take accessibility into consideration. Some bathtubs and showers are designed to be more accessible for small children than others. And like with the built-in shelving, this feature will continue to benefit you as you and your children get older. More accessible bathrooms also add to the value of your home as many older homeowners look for this feature when looking at homes.

Kid-Proofed Cabinets

If your little one is a little bit too young to be using the bathroom on their own, they are likely curious and getting into everything. Because bathrooms usually contain medications and harmful cleaning products, childproofing cabinets is a must. Make sure all cabinets containing any medications or harmful chemicals have been childproofed for your child’s safety. Sometimes this can also mean having your Baltimore bathroom installation company place cabinets out of the reach of children so you can store these chemicals and medications.
