Bespoke Bathrooms: How To Style The Perfect Kids’ Bathroom

Your family has changing needs and when it comes to the bathroom, your children may have unique requirements to help them maximise this space. We asked the professionals from Bespoke Bathrooms to share the latest trends in 2019 bathroom designs and to help us plan the perfect kiddies bathroom.

Tips for designing kids’ bathrooms:

Bespoke Bathrooms designed the ideal kiddies bathroom in the ever-stylish House De Grendel. Here, the family bathroom needed to cater to the boys of the family. When designing for a certain gender, remember, boys’ bathrooms are quite different to girl’s bathrooms for the following reasons:

  • They need less storage space
  • Easy access to shampoo etc or they just won’t bother

The Bespoke Bathrooms team opted for a heated towel bar in this family bathroom, with easy hooks and wooden free standing towel stand. Simplicity and comfort are key factors here and are sure to keep those kiddies towels from ending up on the floor.

In the kids’ bathroom, the space needs too feel warm and welcoming or the kids will still keep on using their parents’ bathroom, so Bespoke Bathrooms opened up the space by demolishing the wall that separated the WC from the rest of the space and introduced a warm grey feature paint colour offset by the white metro tile.

We spoke to Bespoke Bathrooms about what’s hot in bathroom designs in 2019:

What are the current trends?

  • Pattern, colour, fish scale and geometric design captures the eye, such as long subway tiles and hexagonals.
  • Small spaces, especially cloak rooms can make big statements with wall paper or high contrast finishes.
  • Bold black bathrooms are on trend. Hardware in gun metal and black and other metallic finishes are super chic.
  • Open plan bathrooms continue to trend.
  • White and grey marble is in!
  • Spa like luxurious bathroom functions and finishes are must-have items and marble slabs and hidden drains are ideal.

The below fashion and interior design trends are reflected in this year’s bathroom trends:

  • Go bold
  • Hand crafted authenticity
  • Geometric patterns
  • Natural materials
  • Innovative uses of metals

What are some great compact bathroom living ideas?

  • Make a statement and work with eye catching finishes, carefully designed so that even a small space is fully functional, and all available space is being used.
  • Most storage should be seamless to make the space appear bigger.

What about woodwork in bathroom design?

Wooden vanities are experiencing a come back and the trend is towards veneers with knots and grain pattern

What about colour an tile trends?

Just about every colour is appearing in tiles this year as a bright, happy bathroom trend for colour-lovers. Teal and greens continue to be a big trend as well as mustard yellow and greys. Geometric, honey comb and fish scale as well as long subway tiles are still on trend. Marble slabs and patterned natural stone cladding are great too.
