13 Inspired Kids' Bathroom Ideas

Helping your child decorate his bedroom to reflect his personality is a given, but there's no need to leave the bathroom a blank canvas. It's just one more place to create that home-y feel. The following kids' bathroom ideas are zero percent tacky and 100 percent inspired:

1. Pick a serene color scheme.

This periwinkle farm animal wallpaper by Farrow & Ball is super kid-friendly, but honestly it would look pretty good in a grown-up space, too. It's pictured above in a Jack and Jill bathroom designed by our favorite, Emily Henderson.

2. Embrace the feminine.

This powder room by Erin from the blog House of Turquoise is just pretty — we wouldn't mind having it for ourselves. The stand-out piece? That mirror! She says it's from Four Chairs, but you have to email or call to order.

3. Add personality with tile wainscoting.

This bathroom by Chelsea Foy of the blog Lovely Indeed is a little mermaid's dream. That tile? It's Fireclay Tile's Ogee Drop tile in the color Glacier Bay.

4. Pick a statement wallpaper as the focal point.

Vintage and modern touches are mixed flawlessly in this kids' bathroom idea designed by Katie Hackworth. The whimsical wallpaper is by Cole & Son.

5. Go floral.

Pink and gray will always be a pretty color combo. The sweet wallpaper in this bathroom is designed by Spoonflower.

6. Try polka dots.

Somehow the polka dots both on the floor and wallpaper of this bathroom by Studio Dwell are not too much. That's probably because its colors are neutral except for a pop of pink.

7. Children's art doesn't have to be cheesy.

This Jack and Jill bathroom by Amy Freeman Interiors packs a lot of style into a small space. The lesson? Don't forget artwork for your kids' restroom.

8. Pick a theme.

This bathroom by Peltier Interiors screams "under the sea" in the chicest way possible. That wallpaper! Those penny tiles that look like bubbles! It's just cute.

9. Go modern glam.

Husband and wife home-flippers Mike and CC hit the nail on the head with this blush and gold bathroom. There's nothing a subway tile can't fix. And P.S., that stunning hexagon mirror is from West Elm ( $299 ).

10. Don't be afraid of color.

Your kids' bathroom is supposed to be a fun space, after all! Blogger Natasha didn't shy away from color when designing her daughter's washroom — as seen in its wallpaper, knobs, and accessories. And by the way: That beautiful cityscape wallpaper is by Clarke & Clarke.

11. Consider a muted color scheme.

The whimsical animal art matches the muted yet colorful tiles in this bathroom flawlessly. The art and tiles in this particular space are not available in the U.S., but similar styles are just a Google away.

12. Go nautical.

Everything is blue in this inspired washroom — and it totally works.

13. Just tile it all.

Designer Shay Geyer killed it with this amply tiled — and colorful — water closet.
