Contemporary Chic en-suite – ‘Hers’

Tunbridge Wells, Kent

For this project in Kent, Louise, the designer, designed two very different spaces for husband and wife. Hers features crisp white sanitaryware, a separate shower and freestanding bath of a very feminine form and a dressing area. His, on the other hand, is manly in monochrome with a black WC and vanity unit.

Her bathroom is entered from the bedroom via narrow corridor, and then leads to a dressing room on the other side, essentially it was a thoroughfare between the bedroom and dressing room, Her bathroom required a meticulously planned layout.

The classic Victoria + Albert Cheshire roll top bath has a backdrop of fresco like wall tiles which creates a dramatic feature on entering the room.

While working in generous rooms is never a chore, I love the challenge of an awkward space! This project was in a Grade II listed property, meaning we were unable to make any structural alternations.

We started by removing a false ceiling to restore the room to its original height and achieve a greater sense of space. The position of plumbing was also restricted, meaning the shower and bath positions were dictated by the available drainage gradients. This left the freestanding bath to create a focal point when entering from the bedroom.
