The clients were looking for a timeless and traditional main bathroom which both they and their guests could enjoy.
With a budget of £18k, the clients were looking to make a beautiful but practical bathroom which was sympathetic to their period property. They were keen to have a freestanding bath as well as a well-proportioned walk-in shower, ‘his and hers’ sink with a good amount of storage for toiletries and towels. The clients were also keen to introduce a rich, bold color scheme whilst also keeping the room light and airy.
To achieve the ideal solution for the clients, I used a combination of excellent British products which offered the right feel and quality that the clients were looking for. All of the cabinetry is from Utopia’s Rosewood collection in ‘Peacock Blue’ which gives the punch of rich colour the clients were keen on. We paired this with surface mounted sinks and beautifully traditional taps and mirrored cabinets. We positioned the freestanding bath which is painted in the matching paint colour to the cabinets at the end of the room, which creates a stunning focal point and allows the person in the bath to make the most of the views through the large window.
The white bevelled subway tiling acts as a crisp backdrop to the coloured cabinets and bath and with the natural light, they provide beautiful shadows throughout the day as the bevels react with the changing light. This tiling was built out to hide existing pipes and gave the clients some shelving space to place their houseplants and other decorations which appealed to them greatly. In contrast to the bright wall tiling, we decided on a beautifully patterned floor tile to add another level of detail as well as to reinforce the traditional and rich design brief.
The walk in shower is from Merlyn and provides a wonderfully large shower for the clients if they don’t want to soak in the freestanding bath. Ease of cleaning was quite important, so the frameless glass panels were a great feature for the client with no runners to worry about. The shower and valve was again, a traditional style which complimented the taps and overall timeless feel.
The natural lighting was already very good with the large window flooding the room with daylight. We did however add some well-placed LED lighting under the wall cabinets and under the sink cabinets to offer lovely feature lighting which was also well needed in our dark Scottish winters.
The clients were blown away with the completed project and have already had some very envious family members and friends using it. Imagining what the space’s potential and what it could look like was the most difficult thing for them but they were extremely happy to have something designed with their specific needs in mind.
Incorporating traditional charm as well as elegance was so important within this project. The configuration of this room was something that needed looking at as it was not a practical space, however, the client was over the moon when we were able to re-configure it to meet her exact needs
