kidsbathroomIf your new home has a bathroom for both the adults in the family, and the children, you might need to consider how you decorate. An adult bathroom is generally stylish and relaxing. But when you are decorating a bathroom that children will use, you want to make it simple and fun so the child can stay safe in the bathroom, but also enjoy bath time.

The first consideration when decorating your child’s bathroom should always be safety.

Children are prone to slipping or tripping over things, so it’s a good idea to invest in things like anti-slipping mats or the adhesive grip stickers for the bottom of the tub. You can find decorative drain and faucet covers to match the theme of your bathroom.

It’s also a good idea to make sure the bathroom is well-lit, so children can see what they are doing and avoid any accidents. It’s a good idea to add overhead lighting, as well as lighting around any vanity mirror.

Make sure when you are decorating your child’s bathroom that you have a budget and you stick to it. It does not make sense to spend too much money on a bathroom for a child who will eventually outgrow a child’s bathroom.

When you are decorating, choose a theme or color concept for the bathroom. It’s a good idea to ask your child for input. If the bathroom is connecting to your child’s bedroom, it sometimes works to consider the bathroom theme as an extension of the bedroom theme.

You do not need to go overboard with theme decorations or accessories. The bathroom should be subtle, not crowded.

It’s also a good idea to have a well-organized bathroom to help teach your child how to be organized and keep their things tidy. A bathroom with shelving and a cabinet for bath toys that they have to keep neat themselves is a great responsibility-teaching tool.

Make sure that the bathroom decorations you choose are easy to clean. After all, children can be very messy.

Lastly, it is a good idea to choose decorations and a theme that can be easily updated as your child gets older. When they are a teenager, they will have different tastes and interests. If you follow these tips, you can have an adorable bathroom in your home that is perfect for your child.
