As your children grow you will want to give them the freedom of completing their daily bathroom processes on their own. To help them accomplish this you will have to make some adjustments in the bathroom they use most regularly. Getting rid of unnecessary items in that bathroom is easy with the use of a storage unit at Elite Storage in Lafayette. We have also gathered some helpful tips to get you started on creating the perfect bathroom for your child.


Lower the Towel Hooks

How often do you walk into your child’s bathroom to see a wet towel on the floor? You can easily get rid of this problem by installing hooks at a level close to your child’s height for them to hang their towel on. Get them motivated to use their new towel hook by personalizing their towel space with their name.

Organize with Bins

The use of plastic bins in your child’s bathroom could get rid of the majority of the clutter. If you have younger children you are bound to have a large amount of bath toys. You can store the bath toys in a plastic bin while they are not in use. Put the bin on a shelf or in the cupboard to keep the floor space clear. Set aside a plastic bin for muddy or wet clothing that your child tends to leave on the bathroom floor. Tossing it in the bin is the easiest way to get it into the laundry room to be washed.

Cleaning Supplies

Each bathroom in your home should have its own cleaning supplies. This will save you from having to tote around cleaning supplies to each room in your house. Keeping them in a small caddy for storage is easiest. If you have small children make sure to place the cleaning supplies in an area that they can’t get into.

Personalize their Bathroom Supplies

If you have more than one child using this bathroom you can easily keep all of their own personal bathroom supplies together by giving them their own caddy or bag. They can keep their toothbrush, hair accessories, facewash, etc. in their bag without fear of someone else using it. Coordinate each bag by color to make it fun for each child.

Maximize Available Storage

Bathrooms are known to be small and never have enough storage space. Installing shelving and cubbies in your child’s bathroom can help you to utilize the available wall space. Remember to take advantage of the space you have available behind your bathroom door as well by installing a towel rack or over the door hanging storage.
