Designs that Don't Kid Around: Kids' Bathroom Ideas

We love the idea of kids getting to be considered in home renovation plans, especially when it comes to the bathroom. Whether you’re welcoming a new arrival or renovating the current kids bathroom, playful and practical design details are key for making bath time fun and functional. From bright colored handmade tile and fun wallpaper to timeless neutrals, we have projects that will inspire your next kid bathroom renovation. Here are 6 bathroom ideas that will bring out your inner child!

1. Mermaid Shower Wall 

Let your kids' imaginations run wild with this scenic tiled backdrop! One of our signature shapes and fan favorites, Moroccan Fish Scales, are the perfect choice for a kids bathroom. This fish scale shaped tile is the right amount of playful and stylish and can be installed in all directions for a striking effect. We love the addition of Planter tiles, which can be used for air plants, or little figurines like this shower. 

Love this tile color? Visit our blog "The Best of Our Teal & Turquoise Tile" to see other ways you can incorporate this color into your home.

2. Earthy Green Accent Tile

Even the smallest detail can help create a gorgeous kids' bathroom design. This beautiful and bright space is inspired by the nature filled shower curtain! The handmade green hexagon tiles and gold accents compliment the earthy pops of color from the shower curtain effortlessly. Plus, adding a shower niche is a simple way to elevate the look of your shower and have a place to put shaped soaps and bath toys. This space is a great example of how simple elegance can be enjoyed by kids as well as adults.

3. Wallpaper and Handmade Tile Magic 

Wallpaper and handmade tile are a perfect match and this kids' bathroom is proof. Take your child's favorite pattern, animal, or color and find a wallpaper that brings it to life. Next, browse our color palette and tile shapes to find the tile that will pair well with the wallpaper. Lastly, let your creativity flow! This fish wallpaper and deep blue tiled floor create a magical underwater space that will have your child splashing around for hours. By choosing a more neutral wallpaper and tile combination like this, it will stay timeless throughout the years!

4. Rustic Themed Bathroom 

Creating a themed bathroom for your kids is a fun way to get them involved in the planning process! The best part about this kids' bathroom idea is that you get to take their vision and make it modern and functional for years to come. This rustic and cozy bathroom is one of our favorites and can be a fun themed room for those kids who love all things outdoorsy. From the wood panelling to the charming satin black craftsman square tiles, the inspiration in this bathroom is endless. For a kids' bathroom like this, the little details are what brings it all together.

5. Bold Blue with a Fun Patterned Floor 

When we think of a kids' bathroom, we think bright colors and exciting patterns. This stunning sapphire blue bathroom with a floral hexagon floor is bringing both of those elements in and giving it a polished look. This idea is perfect for those who want a bold, dreamy space for their kids but want to keep things posh and put together. By choosing a classic tile shape, such as these 3"x8" subway tiles, it allows you to go bolder and brighter with the color choice. If you want to add more to the space, go all out and choose a tiled floor! Our handmade ceramic tiles are durable and easy to maintain, making it ideal for kids' bathrooms.

6. Neutral Statement Wall

Last but certainly not least is a neutral kids' bathroom idea with a twist. Some like big and bold, but others prefer neutral colors, like greys and whites, to give off a relaxing vibe. This open layout bathroom takes that calm oasis vibe and adds a modern twist by using a mixed tile shape ombre design. Ombre designs, where one color fades into another, are stunning focal points and can be so versatile. Kids can be part of this renovation step by choosing the color blend and tile shape!

Bonus Bathroom

Here's a bathroom idea for those who like things more on the minimalist side! Keeping things simple with decor and details can make for easy cleanup and a sleek look. We love how this bathroom uses yellow to add a splash of color and fun on the floor and vanity. Plus, the use of the Large Moroccan Fish Scales brings in a playful pattern that kids will love.
