Tips for decorating a children's bathroom

If you're the type of mom who enjoys having a tranquil, spa-like bathroom that's free of rubber duckies, toothpaste spatters and cartoon-character shower curtains, a children's bathroom is a must. Not only will you have the freedom to decorate your own space as you wish, but your kids will have the chance to choose their own decor, which is always fun! Here are some tips to keep in mind when you and your children start planning out the interior design of the room.

Safety comes first
To make sure that no accidents happen in the bathroom, certain safety measures should be implemented. For example, slippery surfaces like the tiles in front of the tub or the floor of the shower should be covered with mats, while drain and faucet covers can prevent kids from bumping their heads or turning hot water on by accident. Cordless shades for the windows might also be beneficial. For younger children, a toilet clamp might be a good idea (unless you don't mind having a few precious items flushed!).

Themes create cohesion
To avoid ending up with a hodgepodge of colors and patterns (each kid will likely want his or her favorite hues included), try to decide on a theme that all of your children can agree on. Maybe it's a certain color, a specific shape or a beloved cartoon. Then make sure that each element you decide on fits.

Durable surfaces are a must
As you probably know, kids can be whirlwinds of disaster, which means choosing surfaces that are capable of standing up to frequent wear and tear is important. The bathroom fixtures should be scratch-proof, while the vanity countertops should be sturdy and easy to clean. Durable custom window shades will also ensure that your window treatments don't get damaged by little hands.

Size matters
If you have young children (or perhaps are planning to have more) and are going to stay in your house for a long time, it may be worthwhile to design the furniture to meet a child's height limitations. For example, consider finding a smaller vanity that makes it easy to reach the sink, or find a tub with shorter walls that make it simple to climb in and out. If you don't want to make such permanent changes, a step stool or two can certainly help.
