Are you planning to redo the bathroom that your kids mostly use? If so, there are all kinds of things that you'll have to decide on. Here, you'll find a few tips to help ensure that your finished bathroom renovation project provides your family with everything needed in an easy to care for manner.
Go with Tile
When you're finishing a bathroom in which you know the kids will be using, you want a bathroom that's finished with the most durable, easy to clean materials possible. For the flooring, consider installing tile.
Tile is durable, pretty, easy to clean, and will hold up to whatever your kids throw at it. The one thing to be careful of when selecting the tile is how slippery it will be when it's wet. Some will be very slippery, and some actually offer increased traction. Talk with the local tile expert to find a tile that will not crack if the kids drop something hard on it and that will not become super slippery when they get water from one end of the bathroom to the next.
Opt for Epoxy Grout
One of the biggest complaints that people have about finishing a bathroom with tile is the fact that the grout will need so much attention in the future. Rather than dealing with mold and mildew growth and discolorations in the grout, you can upgrade to epoxy grout.
Epoxy grout looks like traditional grout, but it will not absorb any moisture into it. This makes caring for a tile floor, tile walls, and tile countertops a lot easier. There will no longer be a need to bleach and seal the grout every other year — you'll just keep on cleaning the floor as you would on a normal day. Your tile may need to be sealed from time to time, but the grout will remain good to go for years to come.
Your kids need a place to keep their own things in the bathroom. Install some shelves — one for each of the kids to use. This way, all of their stuff can be kept neatly in their own space and you won't have to worry about all of the stuff that will pile up on the countertop.
You can use this shelf to get the kids organized for school each day — it can include the towels and clothes that they'll need in the morning, as well as any reminders about the homework they didn't get done the night before.
