Our children’s bathroom reveal

I’m so excited to finally get to do the children’s bathroom reveal – after what feels like yeeeears of building our new home. We moved in just over two  months ago and one of my priorities has been having the children well-settled and comfortable. As you probably know, big changes like house moves can be very overwhelming for them.

The process:

I collaborated and walked the journey to create the children’s bathroom with CTM, who have been ahhhmazing throughout this long project. There were definitely days when hubby and I felt a tiny bit of regret for tackling a building project, instead of buying an existing house. Falling pregnant throughout the process added an extra touch of drama, but I can now tell you that nothing compares to creating a space that is completely tailored to your family’s needs and preferences.

The biggest decision to make regarding the bathroom was the main colour scheme. If you have caught some of my Instagram stories on our building project, you will know that I just loved grey as the base colour for our home – inside and outside (which drove my hubby MAD).

Colour was a big consideration for this bathroom too, as my children will be sharing this bathroom. To make it a little more complex, my boys have a 10 year age gap and my daughter loves her pink; so I chose a neutral colour scheme with grey, white and beige tones.

The main floor tile is the Futura Metropolis Grey Matt Glazed Porcelian Floor tile, which you can shop here. I love the pop of grey and white textures! It is also water, fade, stain and wear-resistant and makes for easy cleaning.

I feel like this combination will best enable me to personalize the space with lots of colour while they are young, yet allow them to “grow with it” over the years. CTM had so many amazing grey tiles, which made it very difficult for me to decide, but Pule and Nomsa from CTM Strijdom Park were helpful (and very patient) with guiding me to some gems.

The next big decision was selecting the type of bath the kids would ALL fit into and love. I went with this Vouge Seamless white freestanding bath, which makes the bathroom look fresh and playful yet luxurious.

Since our floor tile has touches of grey, we brought it in again in the shower.

Personalising the bathroom for the children:

Again, colour was the main motivating factor for me. With a neutral landscape, I had the flexibility to add colour to make the bathroom come alive for the children. One of the best decisions we made, was installing a white wall-tile, because it brought a well-lit and airy feel to the bathroom.

I added wall posters, colourful towels, a stool, laundry basket and bath toys to bring colour and life into the neutral room.

Choosing classic accessories:

In my experience, the two rooms that often make the price of a home favourable on the market, are the kitchen and bathroom, so we did not compromise on the touches. Tivoli and Trevi came up as my favourite brands to achieve this.

All our mixers and spouts are from the Tivoli range, which you can shop here.

For the basin and storgage, we went with the Trevi Collection, which is exclusive to CTM.

The Trevi Kubik Woodgran Grey cabinets  that we installed are modern, affordable and fit into the minimalist theme of our children’s bathroom so perfectly. They come in a variety of colours and sizes. 

The Trevi bath collection is exclusive to CTM and can be shopped here.

CTM really had everything we needed for this bathroom and I couldn’t have been prouder to see this bathroom come to life. For updates on specials and new products, follow CTM on Facebook. Locate your closest CTM store here.

My final advice: get a professional tiler to do all your tiling work. I don’t think there could be anything worse than buying a gorgeous, high-quality tile and then having a terrible installation. CTM provides quality tiling services – all the information you need about installations is available here

  1. It’s very beautiful. Can’t wait to see the master bathroom. Hopefully I can borrow from some of your ideas when we finally begin our 3rd building project. Love the bath tub in the kids bathroom. The bathroom also looks very spacious, a plus for building instead of buying right?

  2. Stunning!! I’m loving it. We went for light grey through our most of our interior too. Can’t wait to see GM the kids’ rooms and kitchens. I need inspiration and I’m tired of looking on Pinterest We moved in 4 months ago and I have yet to do zero interior. Building fatigue set it plus our wallets ran dry 🙂

  3. Wow this is beautiful mommy 😍 we’re also building and I’ve been getting a lot of inspiration from your IG stories. I love what you did there with kids bathroom. Color scheme is so important!

    Hubby was also mad at the base color I chose for our new home. But Ke happy wife happy home.

  5. Ouh, this is so beautiful & specious as well. Your kids are enjoying the new home and the colorful bathroom

    Couldn’t agree with you on tint compromising on the kitchen & bathroom, it’s the best decision ever

    My kitchen is done but still need to install a tap next year when we do the bathrooms. I’m definitely going for the same brand and will sure to visit CTM when that time comes
