Bathroom with Contrasting Fitted Furniture
This customer wanted a space which was more practical for everyone who used it. Being a family bathroom storage was also an important element to ensure the space could be kept minimal and easy to clean.
If you have a narrow space but still want to maximise your shower area, a wet room style is a great solution for the seamless and open plan feel which is all at one level.

In order to open up the space, we removed a wall which separated the shower and bath areas. By creating a seamless wet room shower area, you not only make it bigger but also bring natural light into the area and the area feels less enclosed when you walk in due to the simple fixed glass panel. Concealed shower controls are a great way to maintain the minimal aesthetic and allow your shower to be warming up before you step in and avoid you getting wet when turning the shower on. We used a 3 Outlet concealed valve in this project which allows the handset located by the bath to be operated from the same controls. The positioning of the valve therefore has to be at a practical distance for both.
When tiling the entirety of a space it can be a nice idea to being in a feature tile to break up the otherwise plain backdrop. The glass screen separates it from the rest but its subtlety is what makes it a lovely addition.
Fitted furniture conceals pipework and if boxing needs to be made the tops and carcasses can be moulded around so that it sits perfectly within the layout of your home. You are also able to conceal elements of your bathroom that would otherwise sit separately such as your bathroom bin. This has its own unit and means practicality doesn’t have to be compromised in the overall finish. You are also able to have laundry units, toilet roll holders and open shelves, so lots of options to ensure you can create a piece which best suits your day to day routines.
It may be hard to decide whether to go more square or rounded in your project, however keeping this running throughout helps keep that continuity and enables the overall scheme to sit together. For example, the bath is classic in its rounded internal shape which is then echoed through the round shower, sanitary ware and handles.
