This budget-friendly family bathroom renovation is from the same East Sheen property where we added a new extension with a large kitchen / dining / living area, utility room and guest bathroom. It was a “Give a mouse a cookie” type sitch – once they had a shiny new extension, the rest of the house didn’t seem up to par, so now we’re slowly working our way through the original rooms and giving them some love too.
As is often the case coming to the end of an extension project, the budget was tight. And, because it’s a space used mainly by the kids, the clients didn’t want to spend a lot. We were able to keep the existing bath tub and shower enclosure, add more storage with a new vanity, and give the space a facelift with new tiling and a more open layout.

We picked finishes and fixtures that were affordable but a step above builder basic. This meant that, for an extra couple of hundred pounds, we could create a more bespoke feel overall.
The family bathroom was originally two rooms. One held the bathtub and a sink, and the other side was a small powder room with a loo and a space-saving sink.

We removed the wall between the two, but kept both doors and created a laundry cupboard with lots of storage on the right side. Then we shifted some of the plumbing to create a more open, usable layout with even more storage in the bathroom itself.
As I said, we kept the existing tub and shower enclosure, but replaced the side panel with a cleaner, more modern one.
Keeping the finishes understated also gives the gorgeous original features of the house room to shine.
The bathroom feels so fresh and light now, and the new layout means it’s a lot more functional for this family of five.
