To create this fabulous kids bathroom, you’ll need to start with a fresh coat of paint. I used Benjamin Moore’s Regal Matte Paint in Fresh Grass #426.
Next, get some beadboard at your local DIY store. You should be able to easily install this prepainted product with adhesive and finish it off by attaching some pre-finished chair rail at the top. I placed it all the way around the bathroom – It looks great and is easy to clean-up.
Now for the cabinets – I had these cute vanities custom made, but you can search your local big box stores for unique pedestal sinks or vanities that appeal to your kids and help create a fun atmosphere. Just remember that if you are using a vessel sink, you’ll want the cabinet to be lower to compensate for the height of the sink that is above the counter. This is very important so that the sink does not end up too high for the kids.
Find some great lighting online or at your local lighting warehouse. Many stores carry all sizes and colors. Some tips: Make sure that your lighting matches the color of your faucets and stay away from amber colored glass globes as they create a yellow tone that is not appealing.
Now accessorize your bathroom. I used towels with frogs on them – a few piped in pink, and few piped in blue – perfect for both boys and girls. Put some clear beads in the sink for a fun twist (and fun for the kids), and add some storage baskets at the bottom of your cabinets or on shelves for added functionality.
