For your children, the bathroom can be the Jekyll and Hyde of your house. For certain events such as bath time, they might find the bathroom the most joyous spot in your home, while for other times like when it’s time to brush their teeth, wash their face or fix a boo-boo, it could become one of the most hated. In order to make the bathroom a pleasant spot for your kids to be in no matter what the occasion, here are a few decorative tips.
When you’re considering the colors in which to decorate a bathroom for kids, you’ll probably want to think bright, colorful, but not something too over the top. Dull, drab and dreary colors aren’t likely to bring the kids running for fun time in the bathroom. If you have to choose between several favorite colors, consider one color for the walls, with another color for trim, ceiling, and accessories.
Choosing a theme for the kids’ bathroom can be a ton of fun, be a great way to get the kids involved in the decoration, and give them some pride in helping to pick out designs and accessories. The theme you go with may vary significantly depending upon your kids’ interests. From nautical and animals to airplanes, race cars, boats, or trains, there are all sorts of ways you can go with a theme.
Some of most fun can be had with selecting the accessories that go into a bathroom. Accessories can also be a great way to continue a theme and let the kids take some personal interest in selecting the items that are placed in their bathroom. Choosing towels, a shower curtain, toothbrush holders, soap dispensers, bathmats, and similar items can help let kids make the bathroom their own and turn it into an inviting place for them to spend time.
Toys are what can make time in the bathroom really fun for kids, but they can make for great decorations too. From shower radios, rubber duckies, and sailboats to the bags and buckets in which tub and bathroom toys are stored, you might be surprised how such items can not only be fun, but add to the décor of the bathroom.
Probably the best way to decorate a bathroom for you kids is simply to listen to what they want and their ideas. While this might not mean transforming a bathroom into space camp or a 3-ring circus, what your kids like and enjoy could point you in the right direction when it comes to molding their ideas into reasonable home bathroom décor.
