Summertime is just around the corner. Once again, you’ll surely have your hands full with the kids running around the house all day.
Improve things in your home by doing some kid-friendly home remodeling projects. These will not only make your home safer for your kids, but also make their daily routines easier. These will also teach them the valuable lesson of learning how to do stuff themselves. A great place to start is the bathroom.
As parents, we want to teach our kids the importance of personal hygiene—and doing it by themselves, of course. However, if your little ones only have access to a bathroom whose fixtures are better suited for taller and older members of the family, how do you think they will brush their teeth or wash their hands if the sink is too high for them to reach? This is where making the bathroom more kid-friendly can come in handy.
So how can you make your bathrooms more accommodating to children? Here are some recommendations by The Roofing and Remodeling Company, experts in bathroom remodeling in Virginia Beach and the surrounding areas:
Adjust the height of the work area. The work area is where the sink and items for personal hygiene (e.g., toothbrush, toothpaste, hand soap) are usually placed. Make it easier for your kids to reach it with bathroom remodeling. You can either readjust the height or install a lift-out step (a step you can easily pull out or put away beneath the sink) at the bottom of the countertop.
This will make it easier for your kids to reach their towels for drying their hands and faces.
Using bright colors and exciting designs will make your bathroom more fun for your kids. This will also make bath time more appealing.
Your children probably have tons of stuff they use or play with during bath time. Store their rubber duckies and other bath toys in a shelf they have no problem reaching.
As you can see, there several ways you can make your bathroom kid-friendly.
