Family-Friendly Bathroom

Pale blue paint makes the ceiling seem higher.

White subway tile on the walls and graphic hexagonal floor tile ($4.26/sq.ft.) give the bathroom a durable, water-tight shell. Design editor Sarah Hartill adapted two tall pantry cupboards to fit the narrow spaces flanking the tub. A navy and white window shade ($7/m) and funky shower curtain lend a cheerful vibe. A slip-covered stool ($50) is easy to wash and gives homeowners Rachel and Greg Meikle a comfortable place to sit during the kids’ bath time.
