Tips For A Kid-Friendly Denver Bathroom Remodel

July 5, 2017

Are you remodeling your child’s bathroom? Kids have different needs than adults do, so you will need to take their unique needs into consideration when determining what needs to be done in your Denver bathroom remodel. Here are some tips to create a kid-friendly bathroom in your home:

Buy the right materials.

Adults may want high-end, luxurious countertops and flooring in their bathrooms, but this isn’t the best option for kids. It’s recommended that you choose materials that are durable and easy to clean so your kids don’t destroy your newly installed countertops or flooring. Porcelain tile is one of the most durable materials that can be used in the bathroom, and it’s very easy to clean as well. If you decide to go with porcelain tile, it’s best to use large tiles because this means there will be less grout to keep clean. Learn about the pros and cons of porcelain tile.
Quartz is a great option for the countertops because it is very resistant to water, scratches, and stains. This countertop material has the look of granite, so parents will love it, too.

Stay away from slippery surfaces.

Kids may splash around in the tub or forget to pull the shower curtain closed, so it’s very likely that there will be a lot of water on the floor in their bathroom. This is why it’s important that you look for flooring that does not become slippery when it’s wet. Textured floors are less slippery than smooth floors, so look for a textured tile to lay down on your child’s bathroom floor.

Lower the height of the counter.

If you truly want to make this a kid-friendly bathroom, consider lowering the height of the countertop so kids can easily access the sink without having to use a stepping stool.

Include a lot of storage space.

Encourage your kids to keep their bathroom neat and tidy by giving them plenty of storage space so clutter doesn’t begin to pile up on the countertops. Cabinets and drawers are better options than shelves because they hide clutter and do not have to be perfectly organized at all times.
Most of the storage space should be accessible to kids, so keep the height of the drawers and cabinets in mind when designing your kids’ new bathroom. If you have storage space that is out of your kids’ reach, this should be where you keep dangerous chemicals and cleaners that you don’t want your kids to find.

Use anti-scald devices.

Protect your children from burning themselves with hot water by installing anti-scald devices on the faucet and showerhead in their newly remodeled bathroom. These devices will control the temperature of the water so your kids don’t accidentally step into a shower or run their hands through water that is scorching hot.
