How to Design a Kid-Friendly Bathroom

When you have small kids at home, almost every space has to be child-proofed. This includes the bathroom, where slips and falls are likely to happen. A bathroom remodel that’s geared towards transforming the bathroom into a kid-friendly space is a great idea.

Here are a few design tips to keep in mind when designing a bathroom for children.

The Right Height

As your little one slowly gains independence and starts doing things on their own, it’s important to let them explore their newfound autonomy. You can foster this can-do attitude by installing sinks and countertops that are just the right height. This way, they can go about their business without having to ask for help. Lowered countertops not possible? Invest in lift-out vanity drawer steps and enjoy the space-saving design hack for years to come.


From rubber duckies to their favorite towel, kids sure do have a lot of bathtime accessories. This means you need storage space so the bathroom stays clutter-free. Vanity cabinets are effective means to store toys and various bath items. Reputable bathroom remodeling contractors can install space-saving cabinets that are both elegant and functional.

Slip-Resistant Surfaces

Avoid slips and falls by choosing durable surfaces such as porcelain tile. Textured flooring surfaces are also ideal.

Kid-Friendly Hardware

Save your little ones from bathroom frustration by installing easy-to-use hardware. Towel rings, easy-grip knobs, faucets and drawer handles can all help make your child’s time in the bathroom a fun and stress-free experience.
