To provide an ensuite renovation. To make better use of the space in the existing shower room and modernise the look.
The shower room was in a fairly modern house, but the room was not currently being used by the client as the shower had developed a leak.
Walking into the room, it immediately had a sense of being closed in as there was a stud wall dividing the w/c and the shower area. This was blocking the light, as well as limiting the use of available space.
Removing the stud wall opened up the room and allowed the installation of a larger shower enclosure, this also created a more welcoming and open feel.
We specified a Laufen Pro S w/c with an inbuilt odour extraction system. A heated towel rail was installed above, making the best use of an otherwise unused area.
A large Vado mirror which has an inbuilt magnifying section and time display was installed. The newly created feeling of space is enhanced dramatically by wall mounting the w/c and bathroom furniture, whilst also making it easier to clean.
One wall was decorated with split face stone tiles to give the room some texture. This feature was enhanced with LED lights set into the floor that highlight the wall in the evenings.
3mm 1000 x 500 porcelain tiles were used for the other walls. These large format tiles mean there is less grouting, making this much more visually appealing.
The addition of underfloor heating means this is now a warm and comfortable ensuite shower room.
