Bathroom case study 5
This was a massive project from start to finish. Very intricate and our attention to detail had to be on point. The full room was taken back to brick, the ceilings had to be taken down downstairs to alter pipework, full new ceiling within the bathroom, all brass ware was specially ordered from Italy, hand made tiles and all the units were bespoke and hand made by a local joinery company. There were originally two doors into this bathroom, the one leading from the master bedroom was boarded up and a tall bespoke unit was fitted in its place.
The back wall was studded off to create a large recess to place shampoo bottles or even a glass of bubbles for when your relaxing in the bath. All taps and showers were fully concealed so had to be fitted in the 1st fix stage. The hair rinse tap and shower head were positioned within the recess so the hose hanging into the bath would have been unsightly. To over come this we had to retro fit a device within the boxing (behind the tiles) to collect the shower hose, this enabled the hose to retract into the boxing and be out of sight. Very tricky to do but really does make a difference.
The floor was lined with no more ply cement based board firstly. This adds strength to the floor. Electric mat underfloor heating was then laid to the full floor area, once the mat is down then the full floor area is screed’d to a flat finish ready for tiling. Underfloor heating is a great addition to any bathroom, helping to keep your toes warm in winter. The control for this floor is even internet connected, enabling you to turn the underfloor heating on / off while out of the house.
The end product for this project is just stunning. The room is filled will some lovely features. The arched window is one of my favorites. Contact us now to get your quote.
