Vintage Bathrooms in period House

Vintage Bathrooms in period House

The Brief
It was very important to our clients that the bathrooms they created did not look ‘new’.  Living in a wonderful period Manor house the clients wanted a very particular look, “We wanted the bathrooms to look like they had always been there but in an unexpected way.  So that when you walk into the room you get a surprise”.

The Result
The clients loved the Vintage Industrial Tile Collection we have on display in the showroom and used different tiles from this range both on the wall and floor to create an atmospheric backdrop for their bathrooms.  By careful selection of products from the two period ranges we have, Arcade and Burlington, mingled with our Danish range Dansani, the clients were able to achieve the look they wanted.  Modern units have bespoke touches such as colour and gold brassware to make them look individual, and shower units are tucked into spaces side by side with antiques and eclectic pieces to create a unique look.

Master Ensuite – this room showcases a beautiful copper boat bath by BC Designs with a nickel interior and matching nickel floor standing bathtaps. The finish of the Matki Eauzone Walk-in shower fittings and panel bar is also in polished nickel as are the Arcade basin taps and Arcade WC fixtures. Large format (150 x 75cm) Marvel Grey Fleury tiles were chosen to complement the grey colour of the room and the subtle grey of the bespoke double basin vanity unit.  The finish of the double tall towel radiators is a dark Volcanic.

Attic Ensuite– this room was literally carved out of the roof and the beautiful aged beams hide steel supports and modern plumbing.  The clients loved the Dansani vanity unit in bespoke pink with gold handles we have on display and extended the theme of gold to the fixtures and fittings of the Matki Eauzone Shower enclosure, basin taps and Philippe Starck WC fittings.  A Citterio Showerpipe with a single lever mixer in Brushed Gold Optic looks stunning inside the shower and the gold theme is further evidenced by the tall Deline Towel radiator.  Above the basin there is a Samuel Heath Novis pivotal mirror in polished Brass and a Dansani shelf in bespoke pink.  The luxurious feel of the room is added to by the polished 600 x 600 Calacatta marble-veined tiles.

Family bathroom, Guest Bathroom and separate WC – these rooms are all on the same floor and are linked in theme by the Vintage Industrial Star floor tiles and the wonderful deep blue of the walls.  Basins and WC’s are from Burlington and as are the Claremont chrome taps.  All bathroom accessories and shower fittings are in matching chrome.  An unusual feature of the guest shower room is the 3-sided Aqua Dart 1200 x 800 shower enclosure which makes great use of the shape of the room.

Additional Shower room – this room was originally going to be green but having seen the FS Saja Embossed Metallic Panel tiles the clients changed their colour scheme.  The design of these tiles was apparently inspired by a series of rusted metallic moulds originally used to shape ceiling plaster moulding.  It is these tiles which attract the most comments (favourable) from visitors.  They are laid against creamy, faded Soltera tiles. A traditional Burlington Severn thermostatic shower with ceramic handles has a curvy brass faceplate in the shower which matches the curves of the chrome and white Trafalgar radiator.

Groundfloor Bathroom – the beautifully rich purple walls of this room provide a dramatic setting for the Damero-N black and white floor tiles and striking Espiga wall tiles, used in the showering area. A curvy Hampton Shower bath is tucked at one end of the room and its shape is echoed in the rolltop Burlington Natural stone basin with its rounded edge, stainless steel rail and stand.



“The whole process was very professional and efficient.  The communication was excellent – and the level of personal service was really good as you would expect dealing with an independent company.  Having a large showroom helped.  It really helped sort out what we wanted and more importantly, what we didn’t want”.
