Tiddington Rd Stratford-on-Avon New Build with Duravit/Hansgrohe fittings and natural stone throughout.
This new build property on an existing riverside plot has 5 ensuites, two cloaksrooms and a downstairs wetroom adjacent to a sauna.
The clients were already aware of the Duravit top quality brand and wanted to keep to this to give the property a uniformity and continuity of look and design. To reinforce this look they wanted to use natural stone tiling throughout.
Master Ensuite: the clients wanted a big bath placed within a setting, so a 800mm Pura Vida bath with a jacuzzi system was built into a natural tile surround. A large showering enclosure was created using 10mm thick bespoke glass paneling and a hinged door from the Matki Eauzone range, with a wetroom floor and underfloor heating. A Duravit Pura Vida wc, bidet and two washbasins set into handmade furniture painted cream completed the natually elegant look of the room.
Childrens’ Bedrooms: the option of a bath and a shower was required, but they didn’t have to be separate so a Starck bath with a Hansgrohe shower and Raindance showerhead was used. Storage was a requirement, so a roomy Fogo vanity unit with Vero basin on top was chosen, with a Hansgrohe Tallis tap. Wall hung Starck wc’s were fitted in both bedrooms.
Guest Bedroom 1: a Matki walk-in shower was installed with a wet room floor and a Hansgrohe shower system with Raindance ceiling mounted shower head. A bespoke walnut unit was made by Vanity Hall to support a piece of Italian marble and a Bacino washbasin. A beautiful Dornbracht Lulu tap was fixed on the wall above the washbasin.
Guest Bedroom 2: a showering space was created on a wet room floor with 10mm thick bespoke Matki Eauzone door and side panel, and a Hansgrohe shower system as above. A Vero basin on a Fogo vanity unit was spectacularly offset by stunning silver travertine wall tiles. Starck wall-hung wc’s were fitted in both guest bedrooms.
Sauna: the downstairs Sauna showering area was fitted with a wetroom floor and a Hansgrohe Shower system – no shower screen was required. A Bacino bowl by Duravit was placed onto a bespoke marble top, with a Lulu Dornbracht wall mixer above. Natural stone tiles were used throughout with highly striking split face mosaics above the basin.
Downstairs Cloakroom: this room was given a more traditional look with a cloakroom suite by Imperial featuring their signature high wall cistern and Victorian style pan, washbasin and pedestal.
Tiles: the clients wanted to link together the kitchen, snug, laundry, and the hallway to the garage with a large format 900 x 600 natural stone tile. They chose Jerusalem stone which was laid over underfloor heating.
‘This was our first time doing a new build property and the process was exhausting as well as rewarding. Mark came on board from fairly near the beginning, and he was able to liaise with our builders to help with the layout of each bathroom as it was built, thinking ahead to the products we wanted in there. Energy levels and enthusiasm are high at the start of a big project, but towards the end money and time is running out. This is where Mark’s experience and professionalism really helped us. He knew what we wanted and helped us create this look with superb results. He was always visiting the site to check on every step of the process, and he came up with a solution to every problem we hit. We highly recommend Mark and all the staff at the Kitchen, Tile & Bathroom Gallery.’
