"Educational" bathroom spaces
Suitable accessories and equipment make the little ones independent while using the bathroom.
Some English teachers have said that they have wasted many hours in the classroom
teaching toilet hygiene. A simple approach is not enough, and the toilet facilities
do not meet the children's needs. Cleaning, maintenance and safety are the key
words in order to ensure that the toilet areas are accessed and valued by the
Teaching how to use the facilities correctly
Teaching children about toilet hygiene and how to use the bathroom spaces correctly
is very important, not only for parents but also for teachers.
In support of this increasingly important mission, a series of solutions have
been created to help little children understand hygiene, beginning with pre
school children, using fun products especially designed for them, with lively
colours and with animal or plant themes. Furnishing systems that combine aesthetics
and functionality have become the ideal solution for communal bathroom areas
in, for example, nursery schools or infant schools, play areas, service station
areas, restaurants and bars.
The designers, central figures in the preparation of children's bathrooms
The setting up of a bathroom for children between the ages of 3 and 6 is an
important challenge for any designer. Beyond this threshold, especially between
6 and 10 years of age, children tend to use toilet facilities for adults, especially
in places such as shopping centers and services station areas.
The setting up of children's toilets is made more complicated by the differences
from child to child, which vary substantially according to development. The
term infancy usually means approximately an age between 0 and 10 years old.
Here are some types of installation of sanitary products for children:
How to create a divide between two areas of a children's bathroom
There are two very important areas when setting up a kid's bathroom. The sink
area that can be furnished with both sanitary porcelain items and with a sink
and console in acrylic stone. With this material, which can be molded into different
shapes and sizes, you can make sinks with easy access to the water supply, sanitary
equipment and antibacterial dispensers.
The toilet area, may include a countertop or suspended version. Even
these products can be made to suit children, to help them use the toilet and
its accessories easily. For example, a toilet measuring only 260mm in height
or a larger one, with a maximum depth of 540 mm. These sanitary items match
each other and installation is simplified with a free arrangement along a wall,
regardless of the position of the pipes and drains. The sanitary items offer
advantages to both those who have to use the toilets and sinks and to those
who have to maintain them.
The value of safety
The idea of clean and disinfected bathroom spaces, is without a doubt, peace
of mind for many parents, in school toilets as well as play areas and shopping
centers. There is an antibacterial system, able to make the bathroom and its
components even safer and more hygienic. An antimicrobial technology that obviously
has to be combined with the adequate cleaning of the area.
When furniture is essential
Furniture that appeals to children can encourage them to use it, for example,
washing their hands and brushing their teeth often. The accessories, in this
sense, can play a fundamental role, making the environment joyful and playful,
a magical world where every action becomes a game.
In short, good education
in hygiene and the correct use of sanitary facilities is passed on by educators
and by suitable, child friendly, welcoming and colorful bathrooms, that are
able to encourage them to be used.
