A layout change was key to creating this luxurious bathroom

Small bathrooms and growing families aren’t a good combination. That was something this homeowner had first-hand knowledge of in their old house. So when she and her husband moved to their 1950s house in Nottingham with their two children, their renovation journey started with the bathroom ideas.

The water tank and boiler were taking up space in there, and as they needed to install a whole new heating system, it was the perfect opportunity to change the bathroom layout and make it into exactly what they needed. ‘The existing bath, basin and toilet were pink, and while I do love pink, that was a bit much for me, so I was eager for that to go,’ she says.

Making room

‘In our last house, the family bathroom really annoyed us as it was never quite big enough. We wanted to make this as large as we could. With the original floor plan, there was a lot of dead space; we wanted to change the layout to make the most of what we had.

‘There was a separate bathroom and WC, a larger than necessary landing, and a huge built-in cupboard. We decided to knock between the two rooms, spread onto the landing and remove the cupboard for more usable space.’
