Brentwood Shower Room

Essex, UK

This project was a top floor flat which consisted of no windows in the bathroom. Built in the 1990’s, the L shaped bathroom previously housed a shower over-bath and built in furniture but the bathroom didn’t flow and the layout wasn’t working for our client. In addition to the no windows, the floor was solid which meant there would be issues with wet room drainage.

We first needed to address the layout and make it work for the client’s needs and then move on to make it a beautiful, luxurious space for them to enjoy. The first suggestion was to move the position of the current WC to another wall (always check feasibility with the installer before doing so) where it opened a whole new area which allowed us to create a large walk-in shower measuring approximately 1300mm width x 1800mm depth. Due to the concrete floor, we ended up raising the floor here to allow drainage for the long linear drain at the back end of shower. This ensured all water flowed back to the drain with minimal water in main walkway of the bathroom floor.

When it came to design the client was not timid and was completely open to a more intimate ‘boudoir’ feel to the space and his curiosity had been piqued by our waterproof wallpaper – so this was an absolute must have! Designed by Louise Ashdown in our Tunbridge Wells showroom, we suggested to have wallpaper along the main wall which ran around the shower. To compliment the wallpaper we placed polished porcelain marble effect tiling on the remaining wall and floor area.

The gold veining adds to the luxury feel and compliments beautifully with the brushed brass fittings. The faux panelling elevates the space and creates a ‘gentleman’s club’ feel to the space, especially with the addition of the vintage furniture for storage which sits next to our minimalistic basin on brushed a gold stand.

Incorporating a feature mirror and a trio of pendants offsets against the basin, drawing the eye into the room and the floral explosion wallpaper creates intrigue.
