Hello Friends! Right now I am gearing up to makeover my kids’ bathroom and have had a fun time searching for inspirational spaces. I am looking to create a kids bathroom that is both stylish and fun. Here are 9 Inspiring Kids’ Bathrooms that I found that fit that description!

In analyzing these photos I have pinpointed 3 elements that all of these spaces have in common and which I will make sure to employ in my kids bathroom makeover!
1. First, is the use of a bold color. If you scan through the pictures again you will observe that all of these bathrooms had 1 and sometimes 2 bold colors. The pops of colors in these pictures included deep blue, green, turquoise, aqua, yellow, and pink. I am thinking about using green in my bathroom makeover with an accent of blue.
In the examples above the designers stuck to one or two main colors to decorate with. Keeping a simple color palette keeps a kids bathroom stylish!
2. Second, all the photos above had either tile or board and batten or some kind of white wall treatment giving the space a fresh, clean feel. The two photos that did not have tile or woodwork were painted in an off-white color displaying a simple, clean look. Having a mostly white background really allows the bold use of color to pop even more and assists in creating a stylish space.
I have already installed white board and batten in their bathroom I just need to touch it up with some caulk. Adding board and batten has already done so much to update and freshen the space.
3. Third, the use of a primary pattern was demonstrated in each of the photos. Whether it’s stripes, checkers, swirls, or polka dots a fun pattern gives way to a fun, kid friendly space! Again to keep it stylish it’s important to stick with one or in some cases two patterns in the room.
I haven’t decided quite yet which pattern I will use in the kids bathroom but I am leaning towards stripes because I just can’t seem to get enough of them!:-) Juries still out on this one though.
Sometimes all it takes is one of these 3 criteria to be missing for a kids bathroom to feel off. The bathroom below is beautifully done and very stylish but can you tell which item above is missing?
Right, a bright color. For it to feel more like a kids bathroom all that would need to be done is to switch out the white flower on the vanity counter to more of the bright yellow flowers or to add a brightly color yellow or green towel instead of the white one. A simple fix.
The photo below is missing what?
That’s right a fun pattern. An easy fix is to switch out the white hand towel with an orange and white or green and white or even blue and white patterned hand towel.
I hope you enjoyed this 3 step formula for creating a stylish kids bathroom! I will definitely being using it as I work on making over the kids’ bathroom.
Here is what I am working with (the before):
It’s pretty much a blank canvas. So excited to make the vision I have for it come to life! 🙂
