Wet Room with Freestanding Bath
When working with a space which is an irregular shape it can be hard to know the best way to go about a design. Our customer wanted to find a way to have a wet room shower as well as a freestanding bath for an added touch of luxury. Being the main bathroom in their home, the space had to have elements for each user.
Here at Warner’s we love looking for solutions and we found one! By using the alcove as a wet room shower area, placing the bath under the window and creating a bespoke set of fitted furniture we were able to included all the elements and still have a beautiful spacious room.

Freestanding baths come in various sizes and the Adamsez Sorrento bath is available in a 1500 size. This is slightly smaller than average, however its beautiful soft curves allow the bath to feel much bigger, still giving you that luxurious soak but not eating into too much space. A freestanding tap is then the perfect pairing and also includes a handset for both hair washing and useful when cleaning.
By locating the shower in the alcove space you make the best most practical use of the space available and a wet room allows the space to be floor level and minimal. A feature tile was then installed on the back wall to add pattern and texture to the shower area, breaking up the otherwise block colour. Due to the measurements a flipper panel was a great solution as this allows you to maximise the entry to the shower and also minimise the water which escapes when showering.
By having half height tiling outside the shower area you naturally incorporate a splashback with runs round both the bath and the furniture and finishing with chrome tile trim ties in with the brassware used elsewhere, having that simple thread with runs through the scheme.
Fitted furniture allows you to conceal pipework and have a run from wall to wall which maximises the storage you have. Storage was an important element, we therefore added a wall cabinet which ties in with the furniture that sits below. We re-positioned the WC to the other side to again allow maximum space for the bath and by doing so we had to ensure space was left below the cabinetry for the soil pip to run, this was made possible by using a taller plinth option.
Being able to tailor your furniture means you are able to create exactly what you need for your space giving you that bespoke feel. Due to the positioning of the bath, open shelving was used to ensure cupboard doors wouldn’t collide with the bath or bath mixer. Open shelving is a lovely way top keep smaller towels and almost add to that hotel feeling also.
When wanting to include many elements, it is important to be thorough in the planning and design stages, our design service means we can work to the millimetre and this allows you to see how your space could look from many different angles and allows you to visualise the finished space before any works even commence.
