We specialise in Bathroom design and after 25 years we’ve seen a few!!
From spa-chic to minimalist designs there are many options but remember to think about ventilation, light and storage as well.
We’re here to help so please pop into the showroom for a coffee and a chat. Ideally bring in a rough sketch of the bathroom size etc and we can create a 3D design to help you visualise the finished look.
Don’t worry too much about moving pipes or any joinery work etc because our skilled and fully qualified tradesmen can do it all.
Design & Style
Materials such as stone and solid wood have a rich, natural beauty that will add a sense of sophistication to any room. Marble, limestone and travertine are popular choices in high-end bathrooms because of their quality – use stone on floors or walls for a refined look or clad walls and the floor in the same stone for a seamlessly chic finish. Furniture pieces in solid wood or white gloss have timeless appeal.
Performance is everything when selecting the fittings for a luxury bathroom, so it’s vital to include both a shower and a bath. In good-sized rooms a freestanding bath is great, ideally located centrally and contemporary designs work well when a modern bath its teamed with classic brassware to achieve that feeling of timeless elegance. Go for the biggest bath possible, and make it double-ended to boost its pampering potential.
The perfect showering solution includes an overhead shower and a handset. A separate enclosure is ideal to create a generous and indulgent feel but look for a two-hinged shower screen as a minimum so you can create an enclosure over the bath.
If you don’t have much room to work with, look for products that can be fitted into a corner or are reduced projection. There are plenty of products to choose from that offer smaller dimensions than standard sizes.
Creating an En Suite
An en suite or cloakroom can add value to your home. Look for space that you aren’t using that is near the waste pipe. You could use the space currently taken up by fitted wardrobes in a bedroom, or use a partition wall to divide the room or take space from two rooms rather than one;
Fitting a new suite into the existing design easiest - costs mount if pipe-work needs to be changed. When choosing a suite, consider a bath made from acrylic, cast iron or steel or perhaps even a luxurious spa or roll-top bath or even create a wet room.
Once your new bathroom or en suite is complete, you may be required to gain the relevant building regulations approval – including drainage, any electrics and ventilation and meeting safety standards for glass. If you are remodelling your bathroom, it’s worth updating to current building regulation standards, such as ensuring that any metal plumbing is earthed where electrics are earthed and that electrical fittings such as fans, sockets or additional lighting is created and signed off by a Part P registered electrician.
