Remit: design an elegant, light bathroom to harmonize with client’s personal style
The existing bathroom was in a dilapidated state, with wallpaper peeling off and old fixtures and fixings. The floor was out of level by 55mm from the front of the room to the rear.
Our first task was to remove the suite and strip tiles from the walls. Next, we removed all floorboards. The floor was levelled and strengthened to enable installation of the new porcelain tiles and the bath, which was to be positioned in the centre of the room. We project-managed the first fix for the plumbing and electrics, and the installation of new flooring.
The shower area was created as a level access shower with the drain built in to the floor. Adjacent to the shower, we carefully created an opening in the wall to enable installation of a built-in television, integrating the sound with a Sonos system, complete with ceiling speakers.
A hidden fireplace was uncovered and a reproduction Victorian fire surround installed to create an unusual and interesting feature.
The entire room was re-plastered and we fitted new plaster coving to match the age of the property.
