We have one bathroom in our home for a family of five. This summer we’re hoping to not only add a 2nd bathroom (yay) but to remodel our existing one so it works a little better.
Over the past few months, I’ve been looking everywhere for inspiration. Pinterest. Friend’s bathrooms. Hotel bathrooms. Random magazines. I’m seeing lots of things I like, and lots of things I don’t like.
One thing to keep in mind is when you combine kids and bathrooms you end up with water water everywhere. So I’m looking for ways to help keep that water contained. I’m checking out Sterling shower doors with ComforTrack technology as a possible solution.
Installing Sterling shower doors in our kids’ bathroom makes sense.
It has a flexible track. This means you can lean on it when you’re washing the kids (or pets) and it’s not digging into your arms (hello 1970s bathrooms from my childhood)
The ComfortTrak technology is easy to clean too, which is important in any bathroom, but especially one where excessive amounts of bubble bath may get dumped out everywhere (I’m not speaking from experience AT ALL on this one.)
Having shower doors is going to help contain the water water everywhere a tiny bit. I’m still going to have to have access to towels for the invariable waterfall that happens, but maybe not as many. And maybe I need to start rethinking not only how many toys are in the tub, but what kinds of toys (I swear cups appear out of nowhere!)
And maybe after I get my shower done I can start thinking about better storage and maybe even a sink with a vanity.
Do you have any suggestions for small bathroom remodels or how to contain the water mess that happens with kids?
