Use these tips for updated bathroom ideas for teens and kids that everyone will love.
Looking for ways to get your family cleaned up, organized, and on the right track? You’re not alone!

Here are some wonderful before and afters from some of our customers!
Why Shared Bathroom Updates are Important
In many homes, the hall bathroom becomes kids and teens bathroom where everyone gets ready for school in the morning and cleans up before bed at night. Believe it or not, kids aren’t known for keeping their bathrooms particularly clean (surprise!), so this arrangement can be stressful – especially as teenage bathroom habits start to emerge.
Thankfully, there are a few shared bathroom updates you can make to help make sharing a bathroom easier on everyone.
Updated Bathroom Ideas for Teens & Kids
If the shared bathroom in your home is primarily used by kids, start with a bathing space that will grow with them. From there, choose easy-clean materials, and add extra storage to wrangle everything from toys to styling products.
- A tub-shower combo is the ideal bathing layout for family bathrooms. These two-in-one bathing spaces give plenty of room for young kids to take a bath, while older kids and teens can shower easily, without taking up the space needed for a separate tub and shower. Plus, the inside edge of the tub in most tub-shower combos can provide a multi-functional ledge for shampoo bottles, tub toys, or shaving.
- Easy-clean acrylic makes the best surface for teens’ and kids’ bathrooms. From spilled shampoo and bubble bath, to rusty rings from shaving cream cans, acrylic tubs and shower walls wipe clean with soap and water or a mild vinegar solution, and never need scrubbing. This material is always preferable to tiled shower walls, which can stain and be difficult to scrub clean, especially in kids’ bathrooms.
- Bath and shower storage caddies will be your best bet for maximizing space inside the shower. Multi-tier shelves and caddies provide space for shampoo bottles, soaps, etc., and let little kids place their items down low, while older sibling can claim the higher shelves.
- Storage vanities are a great way to provide plenty of useable space in a shared bathroom. While vanities with large cabinets can be helpful, they may be difficult to keep organized. Instead, opt for vanities that have drawers and cabinets to make better use of the space. Each kid in the family can claim a drawer for their personal items, while the cabinet can be used to store larger items like extra toilet paper, towels, hair dryers, and other appliances. Wipe-clean quartz or solid surface vanity tops make countertop clean-up easy, even for messy kids.
- Additional bathroom storage options include medicine cabinets that can keep everyday items like toothbrushes and toothpaste hidden without placing them out of reach. Functional wall niches are another great option that can be placed wherever you need extra storage inside or outside the shower.

“We had a new tub shower put in for our home and I am so excited with how it all turned out. The installers were on time, cleaned up their mess, and weren’t loud during the entire process. Our bathroom only took 1 day which was a relief. Kyle was extremely informative and answered any questions I had throughout the day.”
