When planning our boy's bathroom, we kept four things in mind:
- 3 boys would be sharing this space so it needed plenty of room to move around.
- More than one faucet was needed.
- The tile needed to be easy to clean.
- I did not want to wipe the water off the countertop 10 times a day.
I have to tell you, I love this sink! It is a Kohler double utility sink, commonly used in restaurants. Made of indestructible cast iron, it is perfect for a boy's bath. The faucets come with it and spray like shower heads. Also included is the soap holder. And look, no counter tops for messy kids to get water on. A big basket catches dirty clothes before they hit the floor. At least that is the idea.
We don't have cabinets in either of the bathrooms. Instead we opted for using pieces of furniture to store toiletries. Old farmhouses commonly had this and we loved the idea. It saved us money and enabled us to use pieces that we already had. This pine bookcase with baskets keeps their stuff orderly. I want to paint it, maybe an old fashioned mint green. What do you think?
Classic black and white pinwheels line the floor. The white subway tile in the shower is super easy to clean and dark gray grout will help keep it all looking new longer.
The window was carefully placed above eye level for privacy while letting in natural light.
And last but not least, hooks to hang towels. I feel these are better than towel bars. Regardless of whether the towel is clean or has been used a few times, it always looks the same - neat.
