Many of our clients have several bathrooms throughout their home and whilst these should be viewed individually, it really brings a property together when there is a consistent design scheme.
This project required us to design three different bathrooms within a luxury four bedroom townhouse situated on a private estate in Weybridge Surrey.
Dissatisfied with the quality of the fittings previously installed by the developer, they asked us to update their bathroom with high-end products that would suit the style and location of the property.
The professional couple had different requirements for each bathroom so we needed to tackle each one individually whilst creating a cohesive design scheme. The couple explained that they both had different schedules so it was important for them to have their own bathroom to prepare in the morning without disturbing the other. Each bathroom needed its own personality, with a more feminine touch for her and on the client’s request, a more ambient and earthy feel in the other. A third approach was required for the guest bathroom, as it would be used infrequently and so needed to be more cost-effective but just as stylish.
We had to keep in mind two other key points when designing all of the bathrooms; maintenance and light. To help with the couple’s hectic working schedules, we chose easy clean surfaces for the sanitaryware to keep chores to a minimum.
Lighting was also an issue as none of the bathrooms had natural day light so it was important to pick products that would counteract this. The large bespoke mirrors and the highly polished taupe rectified porcelain tiles were very effective as they both bounced light around the room, creating a spacious and airy feeling.
To create a consistent and high level of design throughout, we installed complementary Bauhaus furniture and Laufen sanitaryware in each room.
Matching taps with a dramatic waterfall effect mixer were also specified to give the rooms that extra element of luxury.
