The Archetypal Modern Family Bathroom


Client Brief

To convert a tired family bathroom into a modern, easy to maintain family bathroom.

This brief is a common request from our clients. Transforming a tired, pre-existing bathroom into a modern space, primarily to be used by the clients children, and therefore maintaining client spend to a minimum, without compromising on quality of product or workmanship.

Unsurprisingly the room contains all the signature Paul Whittaker features we like to include in a cost effective, modern family bathroom.
– A combined thermostatic bath tap, fixed shower head and hand shower
– A Reinforced bath to withstand multiple daily showers and baths.
– Bath/Shower Recess’s to neatly store shampoo’s and shower gels.
– A tiled bath panel to better withstand the daily jumping in and out of the bath in contrast to an acrylic bath panel.
– Storage – both under the basin and also as a standalone option
– A stainless steel towel radiator – far better equipped in the long term to withstand the steam of 3 or 4 hot showers a day
– A top of the range extraction fan for the same reasons as above.
– Minimal tiling so as the room colours/themes can change over the years by simply repainting the walls.
