Designing a West Greenwich Bathroom for Children to Use
Tuesday, August 27, 2013
If you have children in the home (or if you have children visit from time to time) you know that not everything was designed with them in mind. While it doesn’t make sense for everyone to do a complete overhaul of their West Greenwich bathroom space to make everything reachable and kid-sized, there are still many things you can incorporate into the space to make it safe. Below are a few tips to remember:
Safety is an issue
There are small things that are easily forgotten when designing your children’s bathroom but you should keep these in mind:
- Rounded corners and/or corner protectors – They will help
- eliminate some painful head injuries.
- Soft-close hinges – These can help do away with pinched
- Tub mats – So your little one doesn’t slip and fall. Also, nonslip backings for your bathroom mats outside of the tub is a plus.
- Faucet covers – These allow for a safe fun theme so the
- child doesn’t bump their head.
- Spring release latches for cabinets and drawers your children will not get into anything they are not supposed to.
- Outlet plug covers – Why not? There are outlets in bathrooms; water and outlets do not mix!
- Toilet locks – This keeps the toilet lid shut tight. You don’t want your kids to play in one of the most germ infested area in the house right?
- Twist and grip knob covers – These keep small children out of rooms that are off limits.
- Sturdy low step stool – So your little ones can reach the sink without strain.
- Anti-scald devices – This nifty device attaches onto any faucet or
- showerhead to prevent hot water burns by controlling the temperature.
