Any parent wants a family bathroom that is not just stylish and functional, but also one that is safe for kids to use. Impact Home Solutions, trusted bathroom contractor, presents these essential tips for a kid-friendly bathroom.
Choose a Quartz Countertop
Granite countertops do not resist stains and scratches too well. As such, they can be more prone to wear. Parents are always wary about kids spilling something on a granite countertop. Quartz is scratch- and stain-resistant and mimics the luxurious look of granite.
The risk of slipping and tripping is one to avoid in the bathroom. Get a bathtub with a non-slip surface to keep your child from sliding around. The tub replacement cost is very much worth the safety it provides. Get it from trusted contractors such as Impact Home Solutions.
A Standard-Height Toilet is Best
It’s not practical to get a child-sized toilet as children grow and adults share the bathroom. A taller, comfort-height toilet the height of a chair is too tall for kids. The best choice is a standard-sized toilet with a step stool next to it to help little kids reach it.
Offer Bathing Options for All Ages
Get a shower with a shower bar to hold an adjustable showerhead and hand shower. Repositioning the showerhead can suit the needs of children, teens or guests. The handheld sprayer is handy for bathing tiny tots or cleaning the tub and shower stall.
Protect Children from Hot Water
Install anti-scald devices on faucets and showerheads to keep children from burning themselves. These devices limit the amount of hot water that can flow, thereby helping you avoid untoward accidents with your kids.
How to tell you need a new tub is also about accessibility. If you have trouble getting in and out of your tub, we recommend an upgrade.
