Eco Bathroom and En-Suite

The Brief

The Bathroom & En-Suite in this detached bungalow was installed by the previous owners in the 1980’s. My clients had not long moved into the property which was in desperate need of updating. The rooms were dark and old fashioned, with a few leaks that needed urgent attention. They contacted me as they were unsure of how they could improve the rooms and how to maximise the spaces. They wanted advice on ideas and how to create modern and light room’s but with a practicable use for the En-suite and a guest friendly bathroom.

My clients new they wanted a modern style, handless bathroom furniture, with gloss finishes. They were leaning towards a white and soft sandy colour scheme with chrome accessories to compliment. Having storage and surface areas in the en-suite was important to house my clients medication, whereas in the bathroom having a shower area and bath in the same room without the room looking cramped was equally important.

The Design

  • The key to improving the space in the En-suite was to re-position the WC Suite onto the adjacent wall, enabling a run of slimline base units on the back wall, matching wall units were fitted above. This created enough surface area and storage as requested. New light-coloured flooring, sandy shower panels, gloss white units, spotlights and chrome accessories completed the transformation into a modern, light and practicable room.
  • In the bathroom, by removing all the existing sanitary ware and furniture, allowed for a new shower cubicle, bath, vanity basin unit and WC Suite. The colour scheme was in keeping with the En-Suite

After finalising the designs, my clients employed me to Source all the materials and Project Manage the whole job. The Installation was carried out by DNM Plumbing & Heating Services Ltd of Newark, Sanitary Ware was sourced mainly from Turnbull of Newark.
