Be inspired by this brilliant bathroom transformation

Buying an old rental apartment in East Sussex gave the owners the chance to work with a blank canvas when it came to their bathroom. It was a small windowless room that had been created by stealing space from the living room and had basic sanitaryware, magnolia walls and cheap linoleum flooring that looked drab and uninspiring.

The couple wanted a bathroom design that would make their space look bigger and feel more luxurious, but without doing any major structural work, so to create more space they took out the false ceiling and moved the door to the left of the room.

The new layout created space for both a shower and a bath. ‘We were adamant that we wanted a low-profile walk-in shower, plus a roll-top bath,’ say the couple. And they managed to squeeze in both by opting for a compact bath and a shower with a wet-room-style floor instead of a bulky shower tray.
