Be inspired by this modern bathroom makeover

‘Re-thinking our bathroom’s layout was the key to success,’ say the owners of this three-bedroom Victorian terraced house in Middlesex.

The original bathroom looked tired, lacked light and was badly laid out with very little storage. ‘The shower cubicle had one solid wall which obscured the window, making everything feel rather forced in. We wanted to make the bathroom look good and maximise its generous proportions.’

To make the new layout work, the couple removed a partition wall next to the shower cubicle, moved the bath and basin and replaced the window. The shower stayed in the same position but with a smart new glass enclosure in its place.

Struggling to imagine the new space, the couple sought inspiration from a local bathroom designer, as well as friends’ houses, magazines, Pinterest and bathroom showrooms. They wanted the suite and matching furniture to be clean, simple and family-friendly – hence the rounded corners – and their plumber helped them source the items, saving money by buying at trade prices.
