We had a blast designing this kids bath! I mean, how sweet is this space? The client asked for something that would work for the kids now and continue to grow as the kids grow, in terms of style.
This was a no brainer for us! Let’s start with the walls and paint them a soft grey. This is a gender neutral color and is also youthful and sophisticated. We also felt strongly about adding a tiled wainscoting on the wall. Again, like the paint color, the idea of a wainscot is both youthful being practical for children as well as a timeless and classic wall detail that has been adorning walls since the beginning of time.
We decided upon using a classic white subway tile and the added beveled detail makes it a bit more mature in nature. We decided to off play the maturity of the beveled tile and install a trough sink that resembles the old school sinks we all used in our outdated elementary school. The faucets are our favorite part! How cool are these faucets ?
The kids now are quite tiny and reaching this large sink was going to be a problem. As we custom designed this vanity we took their little bodies into consideration. We started by shrinking the depth of the vanity in the center where the sink lies. This allows them to reach the water. We decided to keep the sides of the sink at standard depth to allow for counter space. This also makes the vanity feel custom. Which is always a good look. The next best part about this design is the built in pull out stools. These stools sit tight inside the vanity similar to drawers, however when you pull these guys out they are stools that the kids can stand on only when needed. These stools can then be turned upside-down later on and act as storage drawers. And having pivoting mirrors is a great way to accommodate for tall and small users!
Overall we think we created a kid tested, adult approved bathroom that will stand the trials of time and style! A splash of contemporary and classic meets sweet and youthful. What’s not to love about this bathroom? We hope you love it as much as we loved creating it.
