The Best Items to Make Your Bathroom Kid Friendly

As a residential contractor, I spent years of my life helping clients decide on all the right materials and products to modernize their bathrooms & showers, and to create spa-like experiences so many of them wanted. I took into consideration using designs & products that would make the bathrooms easier and more convenient to use throughout daily life, especially for the elderly and handicapped.

But it wasn’t until having a child of our own, that I realized how challenging it can be to make our bathrooms safe and easy to use for our babies and young children! Unless you have a large budget, it’s not practical to totally remodel a bathroom specifically for children.

Thankfully, there are many products available that will help make the bathroom easier to use for small children.

I’ve discovered some of them personally through our own parenting, and below, I’ll share the best of them with you, along with some tips on things you can do to make your bathroom more kid-friendly!

For The Sink…

Boy Brushing Teeth at Bathroom Sink

A Step Stool

This should be your first move in making the sink more accessible for your little one. Instead of spending a lot of money on a new, lower vanity – which you don’t want to do anyway if the bathroom is also the one guest and other adults in the house will be using as well – you can buy a step stool. If you don’t have much room to store it out of the way when not being used, go for a sleeker, more minimal design, or a collapsible model. Or, if you want to liven up the room and make it fun for your kids, go with something colorful and toylike.

Aqueduck has made something handy to fix that issue: their handle and faucet extender set will make it easy for your child to turn the cold water on and off by themself and be able to get their hands under the flow of water to wash their hands…and it will make the process more fun with the duck design and bright yellow colors!

It can be a chore to get your kids to brush their teeth.

I know that was a lot to take in, and a lot of helpful products to consider adding to your bathroom to make it as kid-friendly as possible. But just take it a little bit at a time and you’ll get there!

If you’re updating and modifying your existing bathroom, remember to take into consideration some of the tips laid out, don’t go overboard customizing your bathroom specifically for children, as they will outgrow it sooner than you realize.

By buying after market products and accessories, you’ll be able to resell some of them later on in a yard sale, consignment sale, or handing down to someone you know with children, putting them to further use, and leaving your bathroom ready for the next stage of your children’s life in their teenage years, and later as adults.
