This bathroom was created with the brief that the client wanted a light, bright, airy bathroom, hotel style bathroom. The client came into the showroom aware that their bathroom needed some renovation and some tender loving care. The current bathroom was struggling with flaky paint, limited storage, and mildew caused by poor ventilation.
The client’s opening phrase was that they had just come back from holiday, and they had a lovely bathroom, and they want the same in their house. Our designer spent time putting a presentation together to fit the client’s wants and needs.
A lot of first-fix preparation went into this project. A new stud wall at the end of the bathroom to allow the fitted furniture to be installed without hitting the soil pot, which was located a long way into the room. We also found out whilst preparing the floor that previous works had left the floor with no subfloor, so we had to spend some extra time rebuilding the floor.
The walls and ceiling were all given a fresh coat of plaster as part of the design involved removing all the tiles and only putting tiles in the shower and sink areas. The walls were well past being repaired and painted, the best option to give them a fantastic finish was to re-plaster.
We decided to use the mat black approach for trims and profiles, the mat black Roman shower screen and the mat black Hans Grohe products helped to create that up-market boutique hotel effect. The fitted furniture in gloss white slab doors is contrasted with black handles, flush buttons, and tap. To finish off the look a custom-made mirror was installed between the tall storage cupboards, creating a beautiful extended illusion of space.
