TIPS CHILD'S PLAY Bathroom safety comes first GET the kiddies involved Let your child paint a couple of tiles with non-washable paint, then arrange them into a splash- back behind the sink. Remember, safety first A young child's bathroom needs safety products and happily, most of them come in great kid designs. Tub mats, for example, keep small children from slip- ping in the bath, as do adhesive pads that stick to the bottom of the tub. Drain and faucet covers are also imperative to keep children from banging against metal edges during a bath or accidentally turning on hot water. Pick round fittings. Decorate for the moment Decorating a child's bathroom is not a ''forever'' kind of thing, so concentrate on decor you can change easily, like paint, towels and curtains. Enjoy it while you can and when they get tired of it, start over! KIDS BATHROOM IMAGINATION THE KEY PRACTICALITY NEEDS A SPLASH OF FUN A well designed kid-friendly bathroom makes it easy for the whole family to enjoy. BATH time for children has a whole new meaning with mod- ern living demands giving them the right to their own space. When it comes to creating children's bathrooms, most homeowners would want a bal- ance between practicality and what fits their child's person- alities and taste. Bathroom brand Raymor says while designing kid's bathroom decor is so much fun, don't let that take precedence over safety and your long-term plan. Think kid-friendly features and ways the decor can easily be updated when children grow up. Do your research and get the children involved. The ability to create an eye- catching, stimulating children's bathroom with the use of paint and tile cannot be under- estimated -- use colour and pat- tern on walls and floor in the form of paint and tiles, ensuring all tiles are anti-slip. Be imagin- ative and colourful with acces- sories such as mirrors. Freestanding baths give parents more room to ma- noeuvre while supervising kids and a cute stool helps smaller children to reach the basin. Install single lever mixer tap- ware, a rail shower that can easily be adjusted and a hand shower for hair washing. BOLD BACKDROP BEDROOM BLISS STYLISH headboards are causing a stir in the bedroom this year. Designers are transforming bedheads into art, using all sorts of tactics from improving classic designs and introducing new styles to revamping retro looks. Director and designer Georgie Leckey of Heatherly Design, which specialises in creating tailor-made bedheads, says it's all about luxury. ''Whether it is the texture in the velvet or the finishing touch of a cross stitch or contrasting coloured buttons, it's all in the detail,'' Ms Leckey says. Investing in a custom-made bedhead adds a finishing touch and comfort to any bedroom. ''It provides a luxurious backdrop for reading at night, offers a focal point, adds colour to a room and proportions a bed by offering height,'' she says. Marchetti, known for its beautifully an- tiqued and detailed classic dining settings, has been part of the DOMO fold for years. Marchetti welcomes the Fiore di Campo bed, featuring a rounded geometric headboard design complemented with a striking wildflower pattern that climbs and blooms across its breadth.
