Busy parents need all the help they can get in order to make bath time gentle on their children and themselves. With the right shower features, bath time can be a hassle-free part of your nighttime routine (and even something your child looks forward to). Read on to discover the difference a LuxStone® shower makes for you and your children when bath time rolls around.

Install a Bath Base for Younger Children


A traditional shower may be difficult or potentially hazardous for younger children to bathe in. Consider installing a bathtub base for the option to bathe seated children. Opt for tub models that have a low step-over height, which will help prevent your child from slipping when entering or exiting. Plus, easy entry may encourage your child to manage parts of their own bathing routine.

Invest in a Handshower for Tear-Free Rinsing

If you’re worried about getting soap in your children’s eyes, a handshower is the perfect solution for rinsing away shampoo and conditioner. Most handshowers also come with a gentle spray setting for a softer rinse on sensitive skin.

Select Easy-to-Clean Walls and Fixtures

Easy-to-clean shower walls that are both stylish and durable are a great choice for a bathroom design that’s kid-friendly. Grout-free walls make a shower refresh easy for busy parents who don’t have time for a deep clean. Stain-resistant fixtures and water-resistant shower glass stay cleaner longer and make sense for parents keeping up with growing bathers.

Choose Recessed Shelving for Organization

In addition to shampoo, conditioner and body wash, your child will probably have toys to play with while bathing (we’re looking at you, rubber duck). Keep such essentials organized and off the shower floor by installing a recessed shelving unit. With adjustable and removable shelves, you can customize your unit for easy access and even easier cleaning.

Prevent Scalding with a Digital Shower System

Everyone loves to take a warm shower, but water that’s too hot can be dangerous to young children. A digital shower system allows you to precisely set the water temperature to maintain a comfortable temperature, as well as saving your preferences as presets. This way, you’ll be able to set your shower to the ideal temperature with the press of a button.
