The Challenge

Our client has been living in the two-floor apartment for around 11 years, and realised that it was high time for a brand new look and re-style for the ensuite bathroom. He had not visited any showrooms or even seen any particular brands that he was interested in, so after visiting the Foam & Bubbles site he decided to ask us to design and organise the whole project. In our original Design Briefing Call he described the issues that would have to be overcome:

  • There had been a leak, he wanted all the fittings to be replaced, a lighter floor finish, and underfloor heating to be included.
  • He wanted a new enclosed washbasin unit rather than the rather elaborate separate basin/surface arrangement that was already in place.
  • He also wanted to reinstate the alcove above the washbasin.

In a nutshell we were tasked to improve and streamline a dated, damaged and unappealing bathroom!

Our Solution

This shower room needed a complete strip-out so the space could be used more effectively and efficiently. The shower itself has a single glazed door opening into what is a ‘room’ with a structural wall. That leaves the vanity cabinet and wall hung WC in what is effectively a separate space. The glass shower door is opposite the WC. The actual positioning of the WC, shower and basin remained the same, but the room itself is completely transformed with fully tiled walls, a shower door instead of a scruffy curtain, and all new fittings.

The room immediately looks (and feels!) bigger and more spacious, thanks to the use of large format marble-look porcelain tiles throughout. There is a false wall behind the WC, which hides the cistern, and creates a shelf. The basin and vanity cabinet are next to the WC, with similar proportions and design lines. There is very large and extremely useful mirrored cabinet above the basin, providing masses of storage for all Sharon’s toiletries and bathroom accessories.

The chrome towel radiator sits neatly beneath the window, and again fits in beautifully with the design lines and proportions. We think this shower room is a perfect example of gaining the maximum benefit out of a small space, and creating a sophisticated and elegant look thanks to the choice of the marble-look tiles.

Design & Quotation

We provided our client with an immersive 3D design and a detailed quote for the supply & installation of the bathroom which allowed her to give precise feedback about the final changes he wanted before signing off on the whole project.

The Results

The resulting shower room in this particular case is nothing short of astounding! In fact it’s difficult to believe that it’s the same room … It proves the point that a streamlined colour scheme and provision of a built in shelf, a mirrored wall cabinet and a wall hung vanity cabinet presents the room as a beautiful, on-trend and most importantly, totally practical space.
