Wondering how to transform your child’s drab bathroom into a wonderland fit for a prince or princess?
Children love to feel comfortable, happy and joyful wherever they are and if you want that for your child’s bathroom, with a couple of tweaks and a few splashes of creativity, you can make it happen!
Check out these top 10 kids’ bathroom design ideas that are producing smiles on children:
10. Bright and bold
Kids love bright and bold designs because they inject a fun and positive feeling to the space. If you aren’t set on any particular theme, you can play around with bold yellows, reds and blues and make your child’s bathroom a splash of positive energy!
9. Fun murals
Murals are a great choice for bathrooms with a large amount of wall space. You can either paint something yourself (try a do-it-yourself wall mural kit), hire a professional painter, or if you are really brave you can have your child paint his/her own creation.
8. Disney theme
If your children long for their yearly Disney vacation or they adore their Disney movie fix, they will love seeing Mickey, Goofy and Donald every day in their bathrooms. By using murals, wall stickers and Disney accessories you can turn your child’s bathroom into a magical mini vacation.
7. Jungle theme
Jungle themes are becoming very popular for those kids who love animals and the outdoors. Start with a base of pale green paint on the wall and add trees and vines as well as accessories such as soap dishes, and mirror stickers in the shapes of jungle animals.
6. Flower power
Flower bathrooms are loved by girls everywhere. The most popular flowers are daisies of all colors and bright, yellow sunflowers which will light up any space. If your daughter loves pink, white daisies would be a great addition to pink walls. If green or white is more her style, the sunflower would be a perfect match. Exotic flowers come in kid-friendly colors for a floral-themed bathroom that will grow up with your little girl.
5. Incorporating your child’s hobbies
Bring your child’s hobby to life! Does your child love to paint? Play baseball? Get your children involved and create a fun and creative space around the things they enjoy.
4. Chalkboard paint
Chalkboard paint creates an environment of complete creativity and fun. Your children will love to draw something new every day. With chalkboards, you can create new themes daily and let your kids join in the fun.
3. Underwater world
Bring characters like Nemo and his friends to your child’s bathroom and give him/her the underwater adventure of a lifetime. Paint the walls blue and add fish and sea plants as decals on the walls and use themed towels and accessories.
2. Hollywood star theme
Hooray for Hollywood! Inject your child’s bathroom redesign with a splash of entertainment and celebrity. Hang a star on the door with his/her name on it and add a luxurious feel to the space with bright lights, plush carpets and your child’s name at every turn.
1. Get the kids involved
Let your child get involved with the project so he/she can feel proud of the new space. Your children will be more inclined to take care of the bathroom if they have a hand in designing it. Have them paint some wall art or choose a color for one of the walls. The kids will use the space a lot so you want it to be one they can enjoy!
