Decorating Kids’ Bathrooms

If there’s a kid (or kid at heart!) in your house who has his or her own bathroom, consider yourself lucky – decorating a kid-friendly bathroom can be loads of fun for you and the young user alike. Kids’ bathrooms serve as a great place to go all-out with colorful, cute, and/or wacky fixtures.

If you’re willing to go all-out kiddy, go for a fun vanity.

Sonia’s Lesson 1 collection is designed to make bathrooms fun for all ages!





Kids can actually draw on the wall-hung, dry-erase, magnetic vanity! The collection includes matching tumblers, towel rods, combination step stool/storage chest, trays, and a shatter-resistant safe glass mirror.

If I was redesigning my kids’ bathroom now, you bet I’d pick this. So much fun.

Now, if you have a houseful of girly-girls (or just one with her own bathroom), give your princess(es) a truly fairy-tale bathroom.

It even has little fairies on it!

Not exactly my speed, but I know plenty of little girls who would desperately want one.

Once the little girl matures, she may want something more “sophisticated” – so go for a crisp butterfly print on a modern vanity for a bathroom that works from little girl to “grown-up” teen.

You can go wild with tile in fun colors for a gender-neutral kids’ bath:


I love the bright green door.

If you don’t have the space, time, budget, or desire for a designated kiddie bathroom, have fun with temporary furnishings: shower curtains, mirrors, rugs, towels, accessories… the possibilities are practically endless, and easy to change as the kids (and their tastes!) grow.

With the handy-dandy built-in timer, they’ll actually want to brush their teeth. (Well, maybe.)

This mirror adds a splash (pun fully intended) of color to a neutral bathroom. Case in point:

I think bright green may be a contender for my new favorite color!
I love how this blah bathroom was rescued by simple accessorizing. Who wouldn’t smile in that room?
If you’re the crafty type, and your kid is obsessed with LEGO like mine is, check out this adorable project:
LEGO ice cube tray + soap making supplies = LEGO soap!
Now the kids will be begging to wash their hands! (And if you’re not crafty – or just lazy – you can buy them on Etsy.)
Do your kids have their own bathroom? What have you done with it? Please share it with us!
