Project reveal: A multi-generational bathroom for N

Some great pictures sent to us by one of our customers of their newly completed Fine & Able bathroom.

This project was all about keeping family together.

After so much time apart from our loved ones this year, how to keep people close and safe is on everyone's mind. How can we make sure our homes are able to flex with us as life changes too - sometimes quickly and unpredictably?

One option is to pool resources and create multi-generational, future-proofed homes, like N and her family. It's a lovely option that’s the ideal solution for some.

Together N's family recently bought a new house and have worked with Fine & Able to adapt it to their specific needs, including everyone from grandparents to grandkids.

The shower room we worked on was previously a lounge/study. Now it is a downstairs level access bedroom with en-suite for N's parents, designed specifically to work for her mum who uses a wheelchair, catheter and shower chair.

With such a large renovation with the family still in residence, various lockdowns and shifting covid restrictions, this was a technical project to manage. N chose to use Fine & Able’s Project Management service to make sure everything ran smoothly.

Bob, our Installations Manager, was on hand to coordinate everything with the installers, utilities, design team and product supply. He worked with the great team at Kitchen and Bathroom Installer Cambridgeshire  to make sure this design was fitted out to the highest quality with the least disturbance to the family. A partition wall was even constructed during the build to keep dust and activity away from the rest of the rest of the house during the build.

We love the frosted glass sliding door – offering just enough privacy off the bedroom, while keeping the space light, airy and accessible. A lovely touch.

The end result is a stunning bathroom that keeps everyone together in safety and comfort.
