This was a lovely bathroom that our designer really enjoyed designing.
The client was very clear about what they wanted within the bathroom but they were not sure about the finishing touches.
Our designer went and visited the client at the property to do the initial site survey to gather measurements and understand exactly what the client wanted. The designer spent time with the client discussing possible design layouts, products, and finishes. These ideas and discussions were then used to produce the design.
Whilst on site the designer identified the type of hot water system that was installed to ensure there would be sufficient pressure to run the style of shower and bath filler that the client wanted.
The client returned to the showroom and our design consultant went through the design with them. The colour samples were collated by the designer and ready for the client to see.
The final colours of the tiles chosen by the client were the Cliveden Cream wall tile, these come in a 500mm x 250mm size and were installed in landscape orientation. The floor tiles and the feature wall tiles are Nordic Soft Grey tiles.
The stud wall where the WC is was built in the installation and the two smaller stud walls on either side were built to be the same depth as the central wall. The feature wall tiles then flow seamlessly into the floor creating a grand uninterrupted design. The stud wall finishes in line with the reveal of the Velux window.
The client spent time with our installation team when the first fix plumbing was taking place to ensure that the diverter controls for the shower and for the bath were exactly where they want them. It is important to keep the client informed all the way through an installation. The client wanted the showerhead, to be central to the “shower zone” of the bath and then both the controllers (Temperature and head selector) to be centrally lined up with each other. The bath controller needed to be in such a position that it could be controlled from inside the bath. The knuckle for the handheld shower needed to be positioned so that it could be used to rinse the entire bath out.
The wall-hung basin unit by Roper Rhodes comes in a beautiful Derwent Blue with a chrome handle. The chrome ties in with the rest of the design from the vessel tap, to the shower to the glass screen trim.
The project was a delight to design and install and a fantastic relationship was formed between the client and our teams.
