Can a family bathroom be practical and indulgent? We think so - with food planning and sleek finishes, a spa-style space can be yours.
Plan the basics
Work out what you need from your space. If relaxation is your number one priority, go for a big bath for lazy wallowing. If time is of the essence, go for a sleek shower and double basins for busy mornings.
Mix up storage
Choose closed units to hide ugly bottles and bath toys, and open units to display towels, accessories and your poshest toiletries.
If you find cleaning a chore, choose wall-hung units, tiles and a frameless shower enclosure to make it easy on yourself.
Add luxurious finishing touches
For a sexy, grown-up scheme go for intense black and copper, with lots of dark wood, candles and fluffy towels for the ultimate in spa-style chic.
Stylist's top tip
Make this a space for relaxation before you even get into the tub by adding a comfortable armchair - it'll be useful when you're presiding over the kids' bathtime, too.
