If you’ve got kids at home, a bathroom remodel will require you to take some very specific factors into consideration. Today’s article from DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen aims to make bath time for your little ones easier and safer by discussing some kid-friendly bathroom features.
Children have sensitive skin and can easily be burned by hot water. Avoid accidents by installing anti-scald devices that control the water temperature and amount.
A standard-sized toilet can be accessed using a stepstool and is big enough for adult use as well. Avoid child-sized toilets as children will quickly outgrow them.
You need a durable countertop that can endure the mess that kids often make without any issues. A quartz countertop is a good choice because it is scratch-proof and stain-resistant, all while mimicking the look of granite.
Wet floors present a slip-and-fall hazard, especially for kids who love to run around. Minimize these risks by adding anti-slip mats near the splash zones in the bathroom.
Give your kids a space to store all their accessories and favorite bathtime toys. Baskets or plastic boxes in fun colors get the job done and brighten up any space.
A stepstool will be your child’s best friend when it comes to using the sink or the bathroom vanity. Consider a built-in stepstool that can be pulled out from the cabinet to maximize bathroom space. The best part? You can turn it into a regular cabinet drawer once your little one is not so little anymore.
