Before and after: a pretty yet practical family bathroom renovation
Planning a family bathroom can feel like a constant push and pull between practicality and style. Can you have wallpaper when you’ve got kids who just love splashing about in the bath? Is it possible to ever control the sheer amount of stuff that finds its way into the room, from body lotions to bath toys?
Emma Coulthurst’s bathroom remodel is proof that yes, you can have a space that looks good and works for adults and children alike – with a bit of planning. Together with her husband Martin, she’s turned a dated ’80s-style room into a beautiful sanctuary with hidden functionality, like the splash-proof panelling and easy-access storage. We spoke to her to find out how she pulled the space together.
