Does your kids’ bathroom double as the guest bathroom? While you probably don’t have adult guests all the time — you might be wondering how to make your visitors feel welcome in a space frequented by hormonal growing humans.
The good news is, it’s possible for your kids’ bathroom to also be a guest-friendly space. Use the following tips to keep it welcoming and relaxing for those of all ages.
Skip the Cutesy Themes
Tomas engines and rainbow ponies might delight your kiddos, but chances are they won’t fill your best gal pals with joy. It’s also not a look your children will probably love in years to come, which means that cutesy theme will likely lead to you needing to redecorate sooner than later.
Instead, stick to neutral tones. You can then accent the space with some fun accessories that let your kids show their personality in the moment.
Define Storage Space
Clutter is one of the quickest ways to make your guests feel not welcome. Luckily, you can keep the clutter at bay by giving your kids clearly defined storage space. Make sure they each know where items are supposed to go and then hold them accountable for putting their own items away. This not only makes your guest bathroom a nice space for visitors, it helps your kids learn some valuable lessons about personal responsibility.
Toys in the bathroom are an inevitable situation for most parents. And similar to toiletries and towels, toys can become a mess. To avoid toys taking over the bathroom and turning the floor into a landmine, make sure to corral toys. One of the best ways to do so is with a plastic basket. This allows you to clean it as needed and re-locate the stash at a moment’s notice — a great way to quickly spruce up the space.
