Chocolate box bathroom

Client Brief

  • Remove bath and replace with a wetroom/shower.
  • Modernise the room with clean line products.
  • Include storage.

Obstacles to overcome

  • The room was only 2 metres high.
  • Existing plumbing designed for a bath not a level access shower.  Therefore external plumbing works were required.

Design

It was imperative to use a level access wetroom tray due to the height of the room.  To create a shower recess and to hide all unnecessary WC pipe work we studded out the right hand wall and made this our feature wall.  We provided extensive electrics including spotlights and power sockets for the client’s Alexa.  To fit in with the age and style of the house we recommended patterned floor tiles to give the room warmth and character.  We matched the floor with a simple metro style wall tile, so as the wall did not compete with the floor and avoid the danger of the room becoming smaller.  Using the compact version of the popular Laufen Pro S range enabled us to give the clients enough room to walk in and out of the shower, but with a significant sized shower screen to ensure the water remained in our designated wet area.
