Back in the day the bathroom was only thought of as functional area and no one really gave much thought to any kind of decorating. Now many people think of their bathroom as a place to as relax and unwind and they spend lots of money on things like whirlpool tubs. Kids, of course don’t think about things like that, they just want to have fun.
When putting together a child’s bathroom perhaps the most important part of the whole process is the decor of the room. Animal themes are always a popular choice with kids and you can find a wide variety of animal themed products online as well as in traditional brick and mortar stores. There are some that are African themed such as one known as the Serengeti that includes the entire line of accessories such as the shower curtain, bath rug, toothbrush holder, and soap dish. This theme will do well in an adult bathroom as well as the kid’s bathroom.
The jungle theme can be found in a variety of different types and colors all over the internet. The majority of these themes can be matched to other accessories to put together a cool look for any kid’s bathroom. It is easy to choose a matching bath towel set that will go well with a matching curtain and other bath accessories like trash baskets, soap dispensers, tissue dispensers, and more. You can even find wall art that will match the collection which adds a more grown up look to the decor.
One thing that can really make a kid’s bathroom fun is the traditional rubber ducky, what kid doesn’t love these? Of course these days there are so many choices you can get ducks that glow in the dark and even ducks that change color when they come in contact with the water. There are rubber ducks that have an AM/FM water resistant radio built into them so they can listen to their favorite songs as they take their bath. There’s even one now that is themed after the Apple iPod.
Another cool thing about kid’s bathrooms is that you can get them to do all the research. You can sit them down in front of the computer and have them bookmark the sites that they find that they like and then you can do the adult research on pricing, availability and so on. This also turns the activity into an enjoyable one for everyone and makes it a family event, it also makes them feel involved in the decision making process. The next time you decorate or redecorate a kid’s room be sure to let them get involved, it will be enjoyable for all of you.
