Always plan according to the needs of the primary user. This is important so you will know what kind of materials and features you need. A bathroom for children and adult would have different needs and you would use different features, too. For a child's bathroom, use non-skid surfaces and rounded edge to avoid injury. You can also place anti-slip mats. You can have adaptations for disabled persons by having grab rails to walls and close to the toilet. Consider a wall-hung sink so that people who use wheelchairs can move closer to it with ease.
Before you start buying some decor, choose a concept or a color theme for the bathroom. If the bathroom is connected to your kid's bedroom, you can have the same concept. Of course, you have to ask your kid what he or she wants for the bathroom so that you will not just be wasting money.
Some small bathrooms and washrooms have very high ceilings which gives the feeling of being boxed in. To avoid that, use slatted false ceilings with the right lighting. This can greatly help to enhance your bathroom. Use good decoration of your ceiling in order to make a better ambience inside the room.
