Now, the bathroom features classic white tile and modern grays, making it kid-friendly and contemporary. Balance out a bigger ticket item, such as installing new tile, by saving on your shower curtain. Instead of a fancy or custom curtain for this boys' bathroom makeover, Atlanta designer Jennifer Foster found one for less than $20 that looked like tire treads.
Sherwin Williams Iron Ore was used on the walls for both of these boys’ rooms. The Jack-and-Jill bathroom is covered in a cool black and white comic strip-inspired wallpaper. The animated paper adds a sense of humor and a youthful energy that perfectly describes the Blehm boys. Each of the rooms also has refurbished vintage pieces that reflects the boys’ individual interests; check out the retro digital clock and Rubik’s cube. My favorite element is the black penny tiled bathroom floor that bridges that gap between the two bedrooms.
If there is no room on the walls near the sink for a hand towel ring or hook, take it to the countertop. Designer Jennifer Foster filled a red tray with a small towel stand for a boy’s bathroom. Decorative hand towels also are an easy way to make a bathroom look more polished, and designers often opt for ones with simple patterns such as stripes.
Noah's Ark is infused into this little boy's room since that's what he loved. The wallpaper has animal prints in a tone-on-tone application to keep it from being too juvenile. HGTV Design Star contestant Blanche Garcia also accents with a sea blue hue that is carried into his bathroom.
A large drawer in the custom back-painted glass vanity fits around the sink's plumbing to offer concealed storage in the boy's bathroom at the San Francisco Decorator Showcase 2015. The vanity features a hidden interior drawer for extra organization.
Blue mosaic tile lines the wall of the shower and appears to spill out onto the floor, creating a pooling effect in the boy's bathroom at the San Francisco Decorators Showcase 2015. Concrete tiles offer an affordable option for the rest of the shower stall and floor.
A custom back-painted glass vanity floats on the blue walls in this swimming pool-inspired boy's bathroom at the San Francisco Decorator Showcase 2015. A chrome wall-mounted Kohler faucet and glass mosaic tile designed to look like pooling water further offers the look of moving water in the room.
Inspired by David Hockney's 1978 artwork" Swimming Pool with Reflection," the shower is lined with glass mosaic tiles in shades of watery blues in the boy's bathroom at the San Francisco Decorators Showcase 2015. A built-in wall niche is unexpectedly edged with lighting and provides a spot for shower necessities.
In this kids' bathroom, a skylight lets in plenty of natural light to brighten the space, while bold navy and green accent the space. The vanities are split here, making the space both functional and practical, allowing each child to have his own sink in the space, and wooden stools help the boys reach their sinks. Built-in shelves provide storage in the space, while an alligator shower curtain and zebra striped rug add personality and fun.
As seen on season 1 of Sarah Sees Potential, a decorative grate hides unsightly utilities and is a charming addition to this bathroom's coastal details. Keeping with the beach theme, a weathered oak vanity is a gorgeous yet functional choice for a family with two young boys.
The contemporary color scheme and accents are well-suited for a boys' or guest bath. The white vanity and stylized chrome hardware play nicely against the soft gray walls and bolder stripe that surround the room. The industrial designed swing arm lamps and beveled mirror make a powerful statement in this design.
Designers faced a challenge with the kids' bathroom. The space had to be bright and fun, but it couldn't be too girly or too boy-ish, so they settled on a brightly colored shower curtain in a neutral bathroom. The bold blue, green and yellow circles appealed to brother's and sister's design style, and when combined with fun wainscoting, created a space that both kids loved.
Contractor-grade bathroom vanities can be easily dressed up with minimal cost by replacing faucets. Prior to this update of this boy's bathroom, the black marble vanity featured a dated plastic faucet. In its new state, the vanity is equipped with a classic faucet featuring an updated farmhouse style. Before searching for a new vanity faucet, always be sure to look underneath to see how many holes are drilled into the countertop. When you arrive to the home improvement store, you'll notice that vanities are sold in single-, double- and triple-hole styles, all made to fit quickly and effectively to an existing countertop.
Inspired by David Hockney's 1978 artwork" Swimming Pool with Reflection," designer Gregg De Meza created a whimsical bathroom for the young boy at the San Francisco Decorator Showcase 2015. Street artist Jeremy Novy painted the bright yellow no-diving symbol, while a floating blue vanity and pooling mosaic tile on the floor invoke a sense of pool water.
If you're looking for a spa-like feeling, try muted greens with more gray undertones than white. This color is fresh, understated and really evokes a feeling of cleanliness. Skip popular kid tones like pink and blue, and instead try shades of aloe which work well in spaces for boys and girls alike.
KIDS BEDROOM, AFTER: This newly redesigned bedroom is a perfect oasis for a tween boy with a sports inspired theme, just enough color and its own bathroom. A custom painted locker and stylized art give the room unique character.
Vintage trophies for toothbrushes and other grooming supplies sit on a custom concrete sink in this bathroom filled with clever details. Designer Dana Lynch used hide-covered milking stools and antlers for ball caps to add to the whimsical, charmingly retro feel of this boys' bath.
