1. Choose colorful bathroom accessories. Bursts of color create a huge impact in your neutral bath and at the same time stimulate your children’s senses. Keep your colors bright and cheerful to make good hygiene a habit and not a chore.

Keep a sturdy stool in the bath for your kids. As bathrooms are constructed to accommodate an adult, most things are beyond children’s reach. Give your kids a stool to step on to reach for the sink, hang hooks, and other surfaces beyond their reach. Kids can also rest their feet on these stools while using the toilet.
2. Provide a shower caddy. If more than one child uses the bathroom, assign a colored caddy for every kid. Each one would store his or her own bath products and toys in a separate basket. This system would not only keep your bathroom clutter free but would also teach young children to be responsible for their own things.
3. Opt for plastic accessories to keep the bathroom a safe place. Plastic wares are virtually unbreakable and wouldn’t shatter, unlike glass, if they slip from wet hands. Plastic items are also fairly inexpensive and thus can be easily changed as your children grow up and their personalities and interests evolve.
4. Add playful pieces. How about the trusty yellow rubber ducky? Your kids will surely love a companion!
5. Place non-slip bath mats. Placing non-slip bath mats in your tub or shower can help prevent nasty accidents and slips.
