Kids bathrooms that stand the test of time.

October 2018 | Inspiration, Advice

There are some requirements when adapting a bathroom for kids, such as bright colours, an anti-slip shower tray and practical storage space.

The first one is essential: colour, a lot of colour. The best idea is to create a palette of colours before starting: one neutral set to be used as a base and one or two bright colours that bring the youthful feel to the space.

Acquabella permits a high level of personalisation. One wall could be covered in panels in a pearl grey colour, combined with a red shower tray and sink. Perfect, for example, for a bathroom inspired by Mickey Mouse.

On the other hand, to avoid accidents or falls, it is important to make the bathroom a safe place for them. Opting for an anti-slip shower tray, putting the shelves for shower gel and shampoo at a comfortable height for them and including steps and stools so that they can reach the sink properly are all steps that can help to prevent slips.

Also, if the adults need space for our creams, shower gels and shampoos, the kids need space for their bath toys, perfumes in the shape of characters, hair bands and hair ties of all types… Therefore it is essential to have good storage solutions to allow them some autonomy, showing them how to be tidy from a young age.

One of the most common errors is to go too far with the kid’s images, which leads us to the need for a new update a few short years later. The best option is to add these details to the decoration: towels and mats with their favourite cartoons, a toothbrush with their favourite animal, etc.

This way, when the child grows up we can simply update these details to achieve a more youthful style, and save money by not having to change the tiles, the shower tray, etc.

Finally, we must take into consideration the number of people that will use the bathroom. If the children are going to share the same bathroom, it might be convenient to install a double sink to save time in the morning, being able to help both at once.
