I gave our bathroom a taste of tropical paradise

By changing the layout and adding lush green shades, Kate Hatherell gave her bathroom a relaxing, spa-like feel

BATHROOM MAKEOVER

The double-ended bath ensures extra comfort with the taps positioned centrally

Kate Hatherell and her husband Andrew were getting frustrated with their old, badly organised bathroom. The Hatherell family moved into their three-bedroom house, in Somerset, four years ago, and after decorating the kitchen, they were now ready to combat the bathroom. ‘It just wasn’t working as a family bathroom and it desperately needed some TLC,’ Kate explains. The shower attachment in the bath had started leaking and the odd shape in the room restricted the space, preventing them from having a walk-in shower. ‘A separate shower had been on my wish list ever since we moved in.

About Your Home Magazine

I know that November isn’t everyone’s favourite month, but I think there’s something rather cosy about coming home on a cold, dark night and curling up on the sofa in front of the fire. If you’re thinking of investing in a wood-burner to warm up your home this winter then turn to page 115, where we’ve got the low-down on the latest models and what you need to consider before you buy. Talking of making your home warm and toasty, do take a look at George Clarke’s column this month, where he shares his expert advice on insulating your home (p.111). Of course nothing beats, a tasty comforting supper on those chilly November nights – so do try our delicious recipe suggestions on page 100, packed with warming spices! I know many of you are keen to be braver when it comes to using pattern in your home, so on page 36 we show how to make it work for you, from balancing scale to creating the illusion of space and, of course, our pick of the latest designs for wallpapers and fabrics to inspire you. Many of us dream of living in a period property with gorgeous plasterwork and beautiful fireplaces, but in reality many of them have had their original features removed or damaged over the years. In this month’s home improvement feature, we take a look at what steps you need to take to restore your period home to its former glory and where to look for affordable, original materials (p.106). Happy decorating!
