Starting with a totally blank canvas the brief was to create three bathrooms and a downstairs cloakroom from scratch, providing continuity of style throughout but also to inject each with an individual look.
The client loved the Ashdown Grey Limestone tiles from Classical Flagstones and chose products which complimented and showcased the natural ripples and patterns of these tiles. The 8 drawer 2 door vanity unit in Natura Painted white is from Vanity Hall who also provided the solid surface worktop in Graphite and the Triple Double mirror wall cabinet. The shower is a Matki slider, whose solid feel had been appreciated by the client in the showroom. A very handy recess was built into the shower wall which is lit up by hidden LED lights. Lights were also placed in the plinth of the vanity unit and on either side of the Starck Series 3 back to wall WC.
The Starck Series 3 WC’s were used throughout in a variety of back to wall, and close coupled styles to provide continuity throughout the house.
The client had a marble topped dresser they wanted to use in this room and echoed the white marble of this with the Estatuario floor and wall tiles, one of which was also used as a splashback to the Dansani Mido Cappella vanity unit. An illuminated Zenith mirror shines above this with a spacious P shaped Mezza shower bath and a Tempus towel rail in chrome adjacent.
Bedroom 2 Ensuite
Tiles again provided the starting point for this ensuite as the client had Travertine in a previous home and really liked the look. To compliment the warmth of the travertine a Karma floorstanding unit with a Signature mirror both in walnut were chosen. The shower is a low profile Simpson’s 1600mm slider which opens with central double doors finished with circular disc handles and sliders.
The pebble effect tiles are on display in the showroom and immediately caught the client’s eye. These were matched to a Design walnut vanity unit from Bauhaus which echoes the colours of the tiles.
‘James was incredibly patient and at each meeting we took steps forward. Having someone prepared to spend that amount of time with us was very valuable and what also really helped was being able to see the 3-D images on the computer’.
