Bathroom With Feature Alcoves
A family bathroom in your home needs to suit all the different users, therefore making sure all the different elements which are needed are included is important and is where we can help. Our customer wanted to make a statement of the space but also keep in neutral and have half height tiles in some areas to allow the paint colour to be changed over time.

When designing for a room which has to be suitable for many users, keeping it simple and practical is key. A shower over the bath is a great way to save on space and the minimal nature of it can still be incorporated with the use of concealed shower valve, handset, rainfall head and even a bath filler with eliminates the need for taps.
Alcoves are a lovely way to break up what would otherwise be a plain wall and by tiling the insides with a feature tile you can add pattern and texture creating interest to the space and an aspect you may not see straight away. Here you can also house your extractor fan, however do make sure you check it is suitable for that area as electrical zoning within bathrooms is very important.
The shower valve is placed perfectly between the alcoves and in such a position that it can be easily operated when in the bath or shower. The practicality of a space and each element is sometimes forgotten about and it can be these things which bother you over time. The radiator is also positioned at an easy distance from the shower, bath and basin so you can easily grab your towel when needed.
The fitted furniture is a great way to conceal pipework and means easy cleaning also as it minimises the area dust can collect. The use of the contrasting wooden top and end panels brings that natural element and warmth to the space and provides a break between the two neutral tones found in the tiles. A recessed basin allows floor space to be maximised and stays in line with the streamline nature of the furniture. Despite having a window above the basin, the mirror has been placed close by, ready for all the morning and evening routines.
All the elements wanted in a main bathroom were carefully thought out to ensure the space was as practical for our customers as possible and it is a space they can love and enjoy for years to come.
