Designing a Bathroom for Kids
Kids having their own bathroom in Colorado can be incredibly beneficial. It will mean a few less people crowding into one space, or having to navigate through the toys left in the bathtub while taking a morning shower. It can be a lot of fun to design a bathroom just for the kids, and there are some things you should keep in mind.
Stick with a regular vanity
It may be tempting to get a short vanity so that kids can access the sink with ease, but keep in mind that they won’t be that size forever. If you don’t want to have to replace the vanity a few years down the road, then get one that’s regular size now.
Using a step stool can be beneficial in ensuring that the kids can access the sink. Once they have outgrown that, they’ll still be able to reach the area to brush their teeth and get ready for bed.
Stick with a regular toilet
Like the vanity, having a regular-sized toilet now will save the hassle of having to replace it when the kids get bigger. They have the opportunity to use the step stool to access this feature, and there are adapter that can be put on the seat to keep smaller kids from falling in.
Get a kid-proof countertop
While it might be appealing to get a granite countertop for the kids’ bathroom, keep in mind that granite scratches and stains pretty easily. Since kids really have no concept of being gentle and things are bound to get dropped on the surface, choose something that can stand up to the torture.
If your heart is set on stone for the counters, then consider getting quartz. This can resist both scratches and stains and looks almost exactly like granite. The bathroom can still be luxurious and functional.
Get the right fixtures
When kids are little, they will probably take baths more often than not. As they get older, they may want to take showers. You may have kids who do both. Having the right fixtures will ensure that baths and showers can be taken with ease.
