Kid Friendly Modern Bathroom
Here it is, all the details of How to How to Design a Kid Friendly Modern Bathroom! This DIY was a two step process. The photos below show 2020 vs 2018 vs 2016 (which really could also say 1989.) While this bathroom didn’t need a full remodel like the master, it was sparking zero joy! I broke down some major changes and spent less than $1K, because done is better than perfect. When purchased in 2016 the house needed.some.work!
Initial Kid Friendly Modern Bathroom in 2017
This was my FIRST ever DIY! I figured I would start with the smallest room in the house. The vanity was the first thing I painted with cabinet paint, this is the one I used, however this is now the one I would recommend. When I took down the giant mirror, the wall was not textured (I later learned how to texture.) At the time, putting shiplap up seemed like the best option.
Initial Cost Breakdown
Here is the initial cost breakdown plus links!
Paint $0 because it had been purchased to do the kitchen and I used a very small amount.
New Vanity Counter top, $109, original extended over the toilet, like really?!
Mirror, $150, from World Market, no longer available
Built in Medicine Cabinet, used 2×1 and trim, prob spent less than $20
Homemade Shelves, $20
Light Fixture $16
Organic Shower Curtain $40
Paint & Primer, I painted the wall’s Behr’s “Ultra Pure White” and honestly regret not painting the rest of the house this color. $40
Initial Investment in 2017, $656
Second Bathroom Refresh in 2020
Then of course, 2020 hit, my style evolved and I was ready to take the bathroom to the next level without doing an entire remodel. While I was content with most of the changes we made in 2017, but was ready to really make things more modern. I still wanted to Design a Kid Friendly Modern Bathroom. I spray painted the light fixture and the shelf hardware matte black. Finally installed towel hooks and a toilet paper holder and said sayonara to the faucet. Of course, everyone’s fav, added SUPER dramatic Floor Pops by @wallpops.
I also upgraded our towels to all white and added some art to the top shelf!
