Bathroom Design

We create beautiful bathrooms through our tailored bathroom design service.  Our design philosophy focuses on practicality with style;  high-end bathroom suites and showers, plenty of hidden storage, great lighting, and underfloor heating.  And we design and install everything for you.

If you need help with your bathroom design, we offer an all-embracing service.

Based on your brief, we produce options, bringing samples and catalogue images to you.  We produce 3D visuals to help you to see how the space will work. If this means moving doors, installing insulation or forming shower niches, we cover that too. We design ingenious yet discrete bespoke storage, decorated to blend with the background, along with illuminated mirror cabinets.  Two lighting circuits give bright task lighting for general use and subtle background lighting for night-time visits.

A high street retailer will sell you a bathroom suite, but you will have to sort out your plumbing, heating, electrics, decoration, flooring, window dressing, building work and other fittings.  It is easy to overlook these details when budgeting for your new bathroom design:  the suite, taps and so on are obvious, but other features are important.

We recommend a loose wire electric underfloor heating system for a small area such as a bathroom.  We complement this with a dual fuel heated towel rail.

Our bathroom design covers everything.  And because it covers everything, you see the total cost of the renovation.

Bathroom suites

The array of bathroom suites is bewildering:  wall-mounted, close coupled, pedestal, no pedestal, half-pedestal.  We help you to decide what’s best for you, but promote the idea of wall hung sanitaryware, largely because it is easier to clean.  A wall hung suite is more expensive, but you get a better result and a more stylish look.

Good bathroom design would include a shower niche for soaps and shampoos with a light to provide a warm glow at night. We avoid metal edge beads, preferring the look of a through-bodied tile.  Small details like the tile overlap on these edges are important to us, and our regular contractors understand this.

As for the debate over bath or shower, the basic answer is simple – if you have a family home, keep a bath. You can always fit a small one.  If your family has left home, they may return with grandchildren – who often need a bath.  When it comes to sell, young buyers look for a bath for their children.  We’ve managed to give clients the luxury of both, even in a small space. A small shower-bath with cube or curved end is a great, cost-effective solution.

The wet room below is squeezed into a small space just 2m x 1.8m;  we made it feel spacious by installing a hinged shower screen whilst providing ample space for an elegant freestanding bath.

Below you can see how we designed this hinged glass door in this semi wet room to protect the rest of the room from spray.

Bathroom installation

We mentioned that ours is a total service:  bathroom design and project management.  We manage the project from initial concepts through to full installation, including all finishes.  Most of our clients seek a luxury bathroom design and you may care to see some of our previous bathrooms and en-suites.
