Useful Ideas For Decorating A Kid's Bathroom

Jan 31, 2008
Decorating a bathroom that is used by a child presents its own unique challenges. Because young children use the bathroom so often (many times accompanied by a parent), these bathrooms are often the most used rooms in a house. Unfortunately, most parents have no idea how to decorate kids' bathrooms. Children can be vocal about things they dislike, so parents of young kids sometimes find that their design choices are less-than-welcome. This article offer some tips and ideas that parents can use to decorate a kid's bathroom.

Knowing The Gender Behind The Decorations

A boy's bathroom can be decorated to appeal to his interest in specific passions such as cars, cowboys, bugs, etc. A bathroom used by a young girl can be decorated to appeal to other passions that a boy may not be interested in such as dolls or princesses. Decorating a bathroom begins with the gender of the child (or children) who will use the bathroom. If both a girl and a boy are going to use the same bathroom, it's important to keep a neutral theme in the bathroom while catering to their interests simultaneously. For every need or theme, there are plenty of accessories that you can use.

What Accessories And Decorations Can Be Used?

There are dozens of accessories that you can use to decorate a kid's bathroom. For example, if your child enjoys cars, you can buy a bathmat and curtain set that have cars on them. Similarly, if your child likes Disney cartoons, you can use a bathroom rug that has pictures of their favorite cartoon characters.

Toothbrush tumblers come in hundreds of styles. Boys may enjoy a tumbler shaped like a dinosaur while girls may prefer tumblers that have a shape like a princess. Hand soap and lotion pumps that liven up kids' bathrooms with their favorite animals, sports objects, or cartoon characters are also available.

Other things that can be used to decoration a child's bathroom includes knobs, waste baskets, tissue dispenser and soap dishes. For example, each knob on every cabinet or drawer in your kid's bathroom can also be decorated. You can buy knobs that look like clown faces, jungle animals, or soccer balls, depending upon what your children prefer. Similar interests can be reflected in other decorations.

A Bathroom That Grows With Your Child

As your children get older, the things that inspire or entertain them changes. Accessories and decorations can be easily replaced as your child's passions change. Bathmats, shower curtains, tumblers, soap dispensers and knobs can be changed to reflect a child's new interests.

Take care to avoid using decorations in your child's bathroom that may be difficult to change. For example, wallpaper that has pictures of bugs on it may delight a boy when he is only a few years old. However, he will likely outgrow this passion, leaving wallpaper that needs to be replaced.

Ultimately, decorating a kid's bathroom is only limited by your imagination. There are so many accessories available to decorate with that the true challenge is deciding which to use. The key to creating a bathroom that will delight your child is to know their interests and buy decorations that are easy to change as your child gets older. With a little planning and imagination, you can create the perfect bathroom for your child.
