As a mom, I find myself trying to find easy, quick ways to keep my house clean. The bathroom is one of those rooms that can go from clean to destroyed in 1 second. I’ve put together some of the quick and easy tips for kids bathrooms that I’ve found can help my kids become more accountable for their bathroom.
Bright Decor with Good Basics
One my best tips is using good towels. I think kids even need good towels. Good quality towels are game changers!
I love the ones from Pottery Barn Kids. The colors are so bright and they all go well together. You can mix and match to get a great look for boys and girls. Make sure that you get styles that the kids can grow with because these towels will last you a few years.
When you go for a shower curtain, get a basic color like white. That way you can use it for years to come and change out your towels and other decor.
Also, look for ways to use things that your kids keep in the bathroom as decor. For example my girls love their big bauble jewelry, so I threw it in one of these jars and I LOVE the look of them as decor. They can get to the jewelry to wear and use, but it has a home and a place to be, and also adds fun color to the space.
Everything Accessible and Easy to Clean-up
Make sure everything has a place. I’ve found if we don’t have a place for something like, toothpaste or a hairbrush, then it just gets set somewhere. So find a place for all the things your kids use.
Try as hard as you can to not have anything on your counter other than soap. This is a great way for your kids to know that the bathroom isn’t clean. If you don’t allow anything but the soap they will know what they need to clean up and put away.
Storage for kids is essential. Everything needs a home!
Once again, use jars to store bath time essentials. My girls love bath bombs and they can use them for a bath every once in a while. Having them in a jar makes great storage but also adds to the decor.
I’ve also loved putting the clean towels on the storage shelves. Easy for them to grab when getting out of the tub or shower, but not taking up space under my sink. That’s valuable real-estate to me.
I also use the towel hooks instead of a bar to give us more room. Then the kids can easily grab their towels and hang them up.
Here are some other places I made storage:
Having girls, you know I have hair things. I used a Command Strip cord hook for the ribbon bow holder. The girls are able to snag their choice and then put it away super easy. And I don’t have to worry about the ribbon holder walking away somewhere.
Headbands are another hair staple at my house. I found this storage container that fits them perfectly. We take out a headband and can easily put it away. I also store other hair supplies like elastics and bobby pins in food storage containers so they aren’t lose in the bathroom drawers.
When I said under my counter was valuable real-estate you might have laughed. But honestly I need the storage under there to hide things that I don’t want seen but need to be used, like this step stool. Not so easy on the eyes but necessary. Maybe one day I’ll buy the cute ones from Pottery Barn Kids. 😉
So of course I had to add a fun video of my daughter and our little morning routine. Video was done by the talented Heather Cluff.
