Windows can allow entry of natural light and air. But if you think your bathroom doesn't have enough ventilation, you can consider using an extractor fan. You need to choose the right size for the fan and you can do this by getting the volume of your room. Your room volume will be multiplied by the number of air changes needed in an hour which is 20 for bathroom. Then you purchase a fan that is appropriate for your bathroom that could provide the needed flow rate of air.
Sufficiency of space is important in order to allow comfort inside the bathroom. It wouldn't be nice to enter a bathroom where you could hardly stand nor move. Allow space for sitting, standing, getting in and out of the bath tub or shower and enough traffic for moving around. You can use glass shelving for keeping your cosmetics and toiletries. A good color scheme will help you enhance a small bathroom. You can also use curves in a linear room for it adds interest. Use mirrors, windows and glass strategically for it creates a sense of openness allowing light to bounce throughout your entire bathroom.
Bear in mind that kids are playful and are prone to slipping and bumping into things even if they are in the bathroom. Place safety products in the bathroom like anti-slipping mats and adhesive pads that stick to the bottom of the tub. Also place drain and faucet covers, you can choose covers that are also decorative. Have a cover clamp for your toilet. Just use plain white so that kids will not be curious in peeping into it and be put to danger.
