Today I wanted to take some time to talk about kid’s bathroom ideas to organize the chaos that we all experience as parents and caregivers at some point in time. Most of what you will see here at Keep Toddlers Busy is activities for toddlers, preschool and even beyond, but parenting involves so much more and I can’t help myself! So I love to talk about tips and home life (including storage and decor) as well.
I few months ago I published a post about adding kids playroom storage ideas into my home as well as a similar post on kids bedroom storage. A lot of people loved the posts so I decided to do a bathroom version as well!
I scoured the internet looking for some of the best tips and kids bathroom design inspiration, and I have finally put together my compilation.
Whatever the size of your child’s bathroom; today I’ve collected all kinds of awesome ideas for how to tackle the mess and get one of the most utilized but taken for granted spaces an overhaul of organization!
As I said earlier, I did a lot of research and Pinterest was also a great source. If you love it too and are looking for even more kid’s bathroom decor or ideas, then check out my Pinterest board on Bathrooms and follow my account on Pinterest for more ideas!
Tips On Keeping Your Kids Bathroom Clean with Their Help
Here are a few tips for keeping the kids bathroom organized! And if you are really serious about it, download the kid’s bathroom cleaning checklist printable from Early Bird Mom.
The bathroom is such a highly utilized but also easy to mess up, so I couldn’t just write a post on bathroom design and storage ideas for kids and not include cleaning tips. Also, if you want additional tips on getting the kids to help clean up, visit my post on the best preschool clean up song list as well. Enjoy!
- Take it step by step! Since my kids are young, I started with simple tasks first. Things like putting away their toothbrush and making sure they didn’t leave pee on the toilet was a good start lol.
- Don’t give the kids toxic and/or harmful cleaners. This is an important one. I probably don’t need to say that using toxic chemicals as a kid isn’t recommended. I use some vary effective non -toxic chemicals that I get sent to my home just so the kids can help me clean 🙂
- Give lot’s of praise. Praise goes a long way with kids in any situation. Feeling good about what they are doing always helps with willingness!
- Put bathroom cleaning on a schedule. How can they argue with you when it’s on the schedule? Okay they can but it won’t be as effective lol.
- Divide Responsibilities. If you have multiple children sharing a bathroom, dividing responsibilities can be a great day to lessen the load so the kids are done quicker, which is always a great thing.
- Clean Consistently. This one is obvious but I had to include it. A consistent schedule means less work during each cleaning. And hopefully less work means less resistance for you!

Kids Bathroom Ideas!
Kids Bucket, Jar, & Basket Storage

My kids need this so bad. I go in the bathroom and clothes are thrown just everywhere. Due to the possibility of water on the floor at any point in time, I think this idea is awesome! Great idea from The DIY Mommy.

I love to use the closet door racks and containers for bedroom organization and I think they are an even better idea for linen closet organization and added storage! So much awesome storage. Even a cloth rack would work for me.

This is such an awesome idea. You can find mason jar organizers readily, but I’ll keep an eye out for the one that has the word brush on it.
