Every parent knows that their child’s bathroom should have an anti-slip surface. It also helps to paint the room with bright colors and have the children’s items within their reach. Apart from these basic features, we also suggest including these other elements to achieve a child-friendly bathroom. Make sure to discuss these with bathroom remodeling contractors during your consultations.
Kids grow fast, so the practical thing to do is to install a vanity higher than 30 inches. In the meantime, while they’re still not tall enough to reach the vanity, your children can use a bathroom stool that can be easily tucked away when not in use.
Bathroom renovation companies recommend adult-height toilets so that you won’t have to remove the fixtures once the kids grow up. That said, if your child is still too small for adult toilets, you should buy a potty trainer instead.
Use Anti-Scald Showers
An anti-scald shower prevents injury to children who may misuse shower heaters and suffer from scalding while taking a shower. These showers have built-in heating limiters to ensure children won’t use the wrong settings.
Choose the Right Color and Embellishments
You can create an excellent child-friendly bathroom by adding bright colors and accessories that appeal to children. Primary shades of yellow, blue and red work well for towels, toothbrushes and even soap. Shower remodeling companies can install brighter tiles and flooring that appeal to children.
Lastly, add a modular cabinet that only adults can access, allowing you to leave lower cabinets for things that children can safely handle while keeping other essentials out of their reach.
