Two Design Strategies for Kids' Bathrooms

So you have a second bathroom which you'd like to make over for your kids - do you make it especially kid-friendly to appeal to them or keep it more sophisticated to blend in with the rest of your home? These homeowners took different tacks with their kid bathroom design.

Jen and Rob who have two young sons (and whose full house tour you can see on Apartment Therapy Boston) kept it classic with white walls, minimal color and antique nautical prints.

A mom in Atlanta went with a bolder, brighter palette and pop-art accessories for her children's bathroom makeover. It's surely a fun spot for them to be although may need an update as they get older.

As for us, we're just coping with sharing a tiny bathroom with our child so this is not a design dilemma we anticipate having any time soon!
