With term-time in full swing, now’s the time to be making changes to the areas that children use most often. Showroom Manager at Ripples, Helen Head, offers her advice on how to make your bathrooms kid-friendly.

Your Shower: Think about buying a shower on a riser, when your kids start to sprout up, this will be the most practical, as you can easily adjust the height. Also think about investing in a thermostatically controlled shower valve, which comes with a safety lock, to ensure little children don’t scald themselves.

Your Heating: invest in a good-sized, practical heated towel radiator for all of those bath sheets. Underfloor heating will also create lovely warmth in a bathroom.

Your Tiling: save your little ones from slipping in the bathroom by steering clear of high shine gloss tiles. Think about slip resistance when it comes to picking your tiles, manufacturers offer different grades when it comes to anti-slip tiles.

Your Lighting: Low-level lighting is great for a child-friendly bathroom, a soft low lighting will be easy on the eye if late-night trips to the bathroom happen in your home and add comfort for your child.

Finally, make bath-time fun! Pops of colours and clashes of prints, if you can’t have fun in your child’s bathroom then when can you? Make your bathroom imaginative, playful and fun with accessories, so that you can change them over time.
