9 Unique Kids’ Bathroom Ideas Posted by Jennifer Kelly Geddes to Featured Articles Go from “blah” to “beautiful” with these fabulous kids’ bathroom ideas. Water themes abound when it comes to kids’ bathroom ideas, but not every design has to be the same. Ocean colors and sea creatures are certainly adorable, but don’t be afraid to consider something new when it comes to your look.”Kids’ bathroom colors can be wide ranging and might include bright greens, turquoise and white, orange and white, or even rosy sand and peach colors,” suggests Jennifer Adams, an interior designer with her own line of furniture and decor products. Or skip the color completely, suggests Christa O’Leary, an interior designer and author of “Home in Harmony.” “An all-white bathroom is the perfect backdrop for kids because you can change up the towels and accessories as they grow,” she points out.Behold, 9 fun kids’ bathroom ideas to consider: Delightful DecalsColorful and versatile, vinyl decals can be easily swapped out when you want a fresh look or your child has outgrown the design. “Decals are a simple DIY design idea and are easier to remove than paint. Plus, they’re mold resistant,” O’Leary says. In this look from I Dig Pinterest, whimsical safari animals dance along the wall. Sweet Sayings”Motivational phrases can help kids start the day with positive encouragement,” says O’Leary. Or they can be used to teach a few simple lessons. Basic hygiene is reinforced in this design from Creative CSI. Make your own with a pretty font from the computer and then frame it. Smart StorageA neat and tidy bathroom begins with a designated spot for toys, soap, toothbrushes and more. Young House Love made smart use of a narrow wall space to house rolled-up towels. Or simply repurpose a basket you already have for extra linens and find a tray to hold detangler and body lotion. Striking StripesYour bathroom wall can get an instant upgrade with some bold painted stripes. You don’t need a professional for every design, so give the DIY approach a chance. “If you’re not sure you can paint a straight line, choose giraffe spots or zebra stripes,” suggests Adams. Or just try shapes or animals or other wildlife your child likes. On Frugal Fanatic, you can learn how to create smart-looking stripes for your kid’s bath. Cute CurtainsHave fun with the details by including different soaps, countertop accessories or a showstopping shower curtain. “You could even buy an extra matching curtain and then cut out squares of fabric and frame them for a coordinated look,” says Adams. For example, the “carnival-like bathroom design” on DigsDigs features bright, fun colors with complementary accessories. Surprising Shine”For dramatic effect, choose a focal point in your kids’ bathroom and cover it with shimmery tiles from floor to ceiling,” says O’Leary. Choose one wall for this design or a section of the room, like this assortment of blue tile ideas from The Style Files. Not ready to retile? Shop for shiny accessories like drinking cups or a toothbrush holder. Lovely LabelsDon’t let the bathroom fall into disarray! Teach kids to stay organized with color-coded labels, and everything will be stored in the right place. Here, Simply Kierste has created individual towel hooks for each of her kids. (You could also buy personalized towels and get the same effect.) Terrific ThemesTraditional kids’ bathroom ideas are fine, but an unusual one can transform the room. “Dinosaurs, birds, butterflies, colorful beetles, tropical flowers or even farm tools are all fun ones to consider,” says Adams. A surfing theme is brought to life with this wall-mounted surfboard from So You Think You’re Crafty. You could also just add objects to the counter or lean them against the wall to announce your theme. For example, flower pots say “gardening” if you line them up along a window sill. Homemade HandsMake a lasting impression on a kid of any age by creating a tile with his hand print. “Brush your child’s hand with paint and stamp it on a few tiles, and then have a ceramics store glaze and fire for installation,” suggests O’Leary. Use them as accent tiles on the walls — your child will love seeing these each time he enters the room. Take inspiration from these creative DIY hands from Lolly Jane. Embrace your inner designer (or enlist some friends and family to help) and create a bathroom your kid will love for years.Want more design tips?

Bathroom Ideas For Kids

Jack and Jill This Jack and Jill bathroom from HGTV Dream Home 2010 was created to provide a shared, gender-neutral space for two kids, while simultaneously giving each their privacy. The turquoise and orange color theme within each bedroom was consistently mirrored in the bathroom design, too. Baby Blues A soft, robin’s-egg blue was splashed on the walls to visually expand and brighten the space, while still incorporating deeper shades of blue for a sweet and interesting monochromatic look. To contrast with the blue surroundings, designer Linda Woodrum integrated pops of vibrant orange accessories in unexpected spots. Simply Green This fresh and fruity palette of green and orange is the perfect color combination for a small and narrow bathroom. The colors ensure that the room is not washed out or too bright. With a pedestal vanity, an alternate storage solution is essential if you want the kids to keep the bathroom squeaky clean. Luscious Hues Rather than extend the floor-to-ceiling green paint into the bathroom’s other half, designer Linda Woodrum added a three-lined stripe of orange and green to create a simple yet visually dynamic space. There’s no neutral tiling in this kids’ space; orange subway tiles line the inside of the shower for a slightly hidden continuation of the orange and green duo. Bright Delight RMS user bluej82 used a zesty shade of orange along with a subdued, rainbow-inspired shower curtain to give this bathroom a childlike charm without sticking to a particular theme. The mature design elements make it an ideal spot for guests and adults, while still incorporating a hint of whimsy. Marine Life No matter how far you are from the coast, you can still bring the best elements of the sea inside and into your decor. Ditch the generic towel rack in the kids’ bathroom and replace it with something a little more inspiring. The hooks can be their favorite animals, like this smiling octopus in vibrant, eye-catching colors with an equally bright backboard. Mountain Living For kids and tweens who love outdoor sports, the spacious ski dorm bathroom from HGTV Dream Home 2011 boasts multiple stalls, sinks and storage equipped for a large gathering of friends and visitors. The industrial-chic design appeals to people of any age, but the casual sporty feel of the space will be an instant favorite to adventurous young girls and boys. Daring Contrast Set off from the warm and vibrant girl’s bedroom, this sophisticated yet youthful bathroom boasts an entirely different color scheme and design style than its eye-catching neighbor. However, the natural tree-branch elements were subtly mirrored in the tiny wall shelf and rippled vanity mirror. Plus, marble countertops and crisp, white cabinets provide a classic look that she won’t outgrow any time soon. Red, White and Blues A classic nautical theme can work for both playful and beach-chic designs. This simple and contemporary kids’ bathroom from HGTV Dream Home 2009 presents an equal balance of red, white and blue around the room for a tamed yet bold look. Glamorously Chic Tween girls will swoon over this glamorous adult-like bathroom with its regal clawfoot bathtub and over-the-top color palette. To tame the bold fuchsia walls, designer Cindy Aplanalp added white subway tiles to the wall and incorporated light wood cabinetry and storage shelves. From: Cindy Aplanalp Beach Chic A neutral color palette is perfect for any age. This kids’ bathroom may not have bold colors or playthings, but its soothing tone and tranquil appeal create the ultimate spot for relaxing after a soccer game or unwinding after a math test. And with plenty of concealed storage space, the kids will know exactly where to store their things. Design by RMS user gfxgirl Bath Splash Although this green-themed bathroom features frogs, dragonflies and lily pads, a more adult look can be instantly traded in when the kids require a more “grown-up” bathroom design.
