Children's BathTraditional Bathroom, Boston

This formerly drab and ordinary space in an 1853 Greek Revival home became a fun bath area for the homeowner's two year old with the addition of blue and green mosaic tiles, a child-sized toilet, a larger bath tub, and pendant lighting. A skylight brings in cheerful natural lighting. Photos by Shelly Harrison.

    Did you build the frame around the recessed medicine cabinet? If yes, how close does it come to the edge of the cabinet? Thanks.

    This is the Elsa faucet from Waterworks - it's a 1930s inspired design.

    Hi devo11,

    I'm sorry about that! We completed this project several years ago (in 2007) - they may have discontinued the line. If we find it elsewhere I'll post here.

    Hi Ducktuck,
    Our best advice for you would be to get a few samples and put them up on your wall, in the actual light, to determine what works best in the space. Good luck!

    Hi Janie,

    The vanity seen here is the York Single Vanity in paper white (YOWS01) and the sink is a Savoy Undermount Sink with single glaze (SALV24). Your best bet would be to check with your local bath supply showrooms. Here in Massachusetts, Waterworks and Splash are among the suppliers we use.

    Child SizeFeatures can be downscaled in a bathroom for children, and that’s what designer Julie Palmer, president of Charlie Allen Renovations, says was a driving factor in the design of this Boston bath with a child-size toilet. The parents of two toddlers chose a single-sink vanity to store soap, shampoo, washcloths, bath towels and other kid necessities. “With small bathrooms it’s important to avoid trying to squeeze too much into the room,” Palmer says. But kid-size doesn’t need to be style-free. Palmer says the vanity fits well with the style of the 1850s Greek Revival home.Find a local bathroom designer

    6. Transoms. Another architectural way to add a nonspecific light source is to add a window between a room and an adjacent space (especially if the next room over has natural light to share). Placed high enough, a transom window (technically, “transom” is the term for the piece of wall dividing a window and the door below) will open a space to new light without compromising privacy.
