Deciding to make over the kids’ bathroom is a great opportunity for creativity and safety to come together in one glorious design. It can be a lot of fun making plans to do a bathroom remodel in New Bedford for children. Bright, beautiful colors and exciting themes are available for kids’ decor that just won’t work in a master suite. A few factors must be considered before moving forward: the child’s gender, the number of children, and the ages of the children in the home. It is important to find decorative items to go with your brand new all wood construction cabinets that won’t be quickly outdated or seem too childish for older children.
Choose a Theme
The best way to start isn’t by shopping for hardware for cabinets and drawers, but by selecting a theme for the bathroom design. Once you know the theme you can start bringing it all together, from New Bedford bathroom vanities to flooring, fixtures to faucets, and everything in between. All wood construction cabinets are available in a variety of styles, colors, and designs, making it easy to coordinate with your kid-friendly bathroom theme. Go for the standard height sinks and counters and opt for safety stools instead to increase the return on your investment. While you might redecorate the bathroom five or seven years down the line, you don’t want to be replacing your vanity and cabinetry too.
Some of the most popular themes for a children’s bathroom include:
- ocean scene or fish and other sea animals
- wild safari or zoo animals
- pastels, bright colors, or rainbow hues
- favorite cartoon character
- rustic cabin and forest animals
- pink princess, fairy, or unicorns
- construction, racecars, or trucks
Picking the Decor
Once you decide the theme, it’s time to put it all together with your New Bedford bathroom vanities from the Cabinet Factory Outlet. When you select quality materials, such as all wood construction cabinets, you know they will stand up to just about any punishment your kids can dish out. Shopping for decorative items to include in your bathroom remodel in New Bedford can distract you from the basic elements that must be considered, such as the vanity, storage cabinets, hardware for cabinets and drawers, fixtures, lighting, and safety options. Just make sure that everything you choose has safety in mind and will provide a function.
Try using the decorative elements sparingly and add in more, if needed, once you complete the remodeling project. You can always add later and will probably continue to see things that fit with your theme long after the new vanity and flooring are installed. It is easy to accessorize with coordinated towels, toothbrush holders, tissue boxes, and wall art for a kid-friendly bathroom, so don’t worry if you don’t find too many things that work perfectly with your theme in the beginning. This is one of those projects that can be ongoing until you find just the right items to fill the space.
Safety Items to Consider
There are certain things that you can do when remodeling a child’s bathroom that will make it even safer than it was before. Did you know that choosing bathroom floor tile that has a lot of grout will create a safer, less slippery surface than larger tiles that have less grout? You can also add anti-slip surfacing to the tile, but this is a hassle-free way to create a safer floor for bathtimes and morning routines. Anti-slip pads can also be used in the tub instead of bathmats for an easy-to-clean option. Some pads come in fun shapes and colors, which can add to your chosen theme for decor.
Drain and faucet protection are necessary, as well as locks for the toilet and covers for the electrical outlets. Consider a trip to a local child safety store or do some searches online. You might be surprised to find options that will even lock your new all wood construction cabinets without causing scratches or damage, as well as some theme-based ideas that you can use to create kid-friendly New Bedford bathroom vanities. The goal is to create a fun environment that will make your kids happy to take baths and learn basic grooming skills along the way, but you also want it to be as safe as possible. It is worth the extra time and effort to search out safety tools for your bathroom remodel in New Bedford.
