7 Ways To Liven Up A Kids’ Bathroom

When decorating a kids space it can be easy to go overboard.  If you have a little one that has their own bathroom space decorating can be a fun and exciting shared activity for you and your child.  From colorful mosaics to unconventional sinks and mirrors the tips below offer something for everyone!

 

1. Choose Vibrant Colors That Carry Over From the Bedroom

If your bathroom connects to your child’s bedroom you could simply just carry over the same color scheme and theme to the bathroom.  Kids’ spaces are a great place to bring in fun and bold themes.

2. Focus On The Details

Sometimes you can change a space dramatically with just a few simple (and inexpensive) additions – like colorful mats, towels and shower curtains.  Redecorating doesn’t always have to mean switching out the big items like sinks and mirrors.

4. Go Crazy With Paint & Wallpaper

Painting or using wallpaper is a great way to redecorate without breaking the bank.  Ideas include fun, vibrant colors, chalkboard paint, murals of your child’s favorite characters or even simple stripes!

5. Have Fun & Keep It Personal

Using some of your child’s favorite toys can really help make his or her space reflect their personality.  Add small items such as toy dinosaurs, stuffed animals or their favorite stickers!

6. Encourage Your Child To Help

Have your child paint a few tiles with unwashable paint and use them as a backsplash behind the sink or even around the tub.  Ask them to help out by painting the bottoms of the walls or order a fun set of removable decals that they can apply.painted-tiles2

7. Stow Necessities Away

Think storage space when redecorating your child’s bathroom.  Larger cabinets with lots of drawers, shelves or even a simple chair or stool can be helpful when storing hairbrushes, toothpaste, tissue paper or even towels!
