I love all of these suggestions however I couldn’t live without the kids having their own bathroom! It’s a total luxury I know, but amazing what you can squeeze into a cupboard. It gives them a shower, loo and cloakroom sized sink which is perfect. We’ve done it in two houses and it keeps everyone happy. Ideal for when they are old enough to have a shower by themselves.

Agree, always have a seat in there somewhere, even a little stool. Different lighting schemes (a high level bright one and a low level night time/calm one) are also valuable.

Being picky I'd say the mirror in the third pic is a bit high - little people like to see themselves too!

Two things about heated towel rails: 1. it's worth spending the money on what's commonly called a 'summer element' so that if your towel rad runs on a wet central heating system during the colder months, then when you turn the central heating off, you can still have warm dry towels. 2. and probably just as important, fit a timer switch for the towel rail for when it's on its 'summer element' setting, so that you can set it to come on - let's say - for 2 hours in the morning and 2 hours in the evening (automatically, of course) to warm and dry your towels at abluting time. Not only that, but who wants a cool/coldish bathroom at those times of year when you don't heat the whole house, but don't want to prance about with little on (and wet from a bath or shower) in a cold room? That way your towel rads are doing double duty and really really earning their keep. And the running cost in terms of electricity is absolutely negligible, believe me. All round wonderful!
