Making your bathroom Kid Friendly

The apartment lifestyle affords those who live it many luxuries, greater location options close to work, more access to good schools, entertainment and food varieties galore but alas, children friendly bathrooms are not among them – which means that parents looking to create a kid-friendly bathroom environment have to get creative.

Short stuff

Confession: the “average” counter heights are actually too tall for some adults let alone small children wanting to brush his/ her teeth. Children dealing with high counters end up taking impromptu baths each time they want to wash their face. This problem can be easily solved invest in a step stool that can collapse to stow easily out of sight. You can even use your child’s favourite colour to turn that generic neutral apartment bathroom into something that suits your kids’ personalities!

The reach

Being organised and smart in your product placement can make all the difference when coordinating your children’s bath time. Children friendly and everyday products should be kept down low within reach, with cleaning products and medicines up high or in locked cupboards.

Reading room

Got a little one who’s in the toilet-training zone? A low-profile magazine rack can easily hold thin children’s books (Suggestion: “Everybody Poops,” “Big Girl Panties” and “Dinosaur Vs. The Potty”) that not only boost interest in reading, but aids your children in getting on the “potty train”.

Be crafty

Investing a few bucks in a glue gun and few evenings on youtube can be all the confidence you need to create a fabulous, kid-friendly bathroom! Some ideas for DIY include customised toothbrush/toothpaste holders, kid friendly wall hangings, construct your own shelving and customise your switch plates.

Remember, the nice part is that apartment bathrooms – even if you live there for years – can be updated as your children grow, their needs change and their tastes mature!
