Cove lighting creates a gap between the wall and the finely done tile mosaic wall making it more appealing to the human eyes. Here, the bathtub is highlighted by the natural light it receives coming from the window. The designer wants to project a cool ocean-like atmosphere in the room by using tiles in shades of blue. The idea is to create a soothing and relaxing feel of the water.
Of course, any bathroom should be well lighted. How much more if it is owned by your kid! It is important for them to see what they are doing and to avoid undesirable things to happen. Place overhead ambient lighting and pendant lightings too to their vanity. Teach your kids how to keep their stuff. This is a good training for them to be organized. Be sure that it is easy for them to reach these areas. Place vanity sinks with open shelving below it. Have a separate cabinet for bath toys, too. This will help keep their bathroom tidy.
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.
