We were called in by our client, Mrs B to alter her original bathroom to suit her personal requirements. She felt that there was no need to keep a bath in the room and would rather have a large shower enclosure. Mrs B also did not like the fact that as soon as she opened the door she was faced immediately with the side profile and obstruction of the basin and pedestal.
Therefore we removed the shower bath and replaced with a large 1200 x 900 enclosure and low profile shower tray. We replaced the WC with a compact version to give more floor space and repositioned the basin (now with storage) to the side of the shower enclosure. This enabled us to use the original basin area as the perfect position to install the towel radiator.
With regards choosing products we felt a traditional feel to the room would be in keeping with the style of the property and also maintain the theme that the client had chosen in her other rooms. The Roper Rhodes Hampton range was very similar in style to Mrs B’s recently installed kitchen units and therefore we felt that this was a good option. We teamed up the unit and enclosure with the Crosswater Belgravia range of taps and showers. This is one of Crosswater’s flagship ranges and one of our preferred traditional brands due to its excellent value for money and high quality finish.
To continue the traditional theme we felt the choice of the plank floor tiles and the small metro wall tiles (just on two of the walls) would be the best option. We also removed the central light and installed 4 spotlights to evenly spread the light around the room.
We think that this is a great example of a simple but effective traditional style bathroom.
