Kids Bathroom Makeover

This summer we took this kids bathroom out of the nineties and gave it a total makeover.

Vinyl floor, brass hardware, and oak cabinets: yup, that’s a 90s bathroom!

I know, that teal color is really in your face, right?  But hey, it’s the kid’s bathroom.  It’s fun!  Actually, the kids (ten year old twin girls) picked out more than just the paint color, they picked out the lights and accent tile too, which work great together.  The vanity lights came from IKEA and are the perfect complement to the glass mosaic tile bubbles.

One of the big functional improvements we made here was to move the toilet to the opposite wall, so it wasn’t right in front of the shower like before.  Then we added a partition wall for a little privacy.

Why do people always put the toilet right in front of the tub like this? Nobody wants to stare are the toilet when they’re taking a bath, right?!

This meant shortening the vanity, but it’s a long room, so there was still enough room for two sinks, and plenty of counter space.

These cabinets were made using IKEA kitchen cabinets.  We cut them down to 24″ tall, and suspended them off the floor for a lighter feel.  Then to make it totally luxurious we used our custom teak faces with horizontal grain!  Speaking of luxurious these tile floors are heated!  No more cold little piggies!
