Eastville, Black & White Modern Bathroom
“We’ve been really impressed with the quality of workmanship from your team and loved the finish of our bathroom.”
Location: Eastville, Bristol
Clients brief: Move the bathroom from downstairs to first floor, and create a full service bathroom from an empty room.
Design/plan: The client wanted to create a family friendly bathroom, in a traditional style to compliment the period of the property. The client had an existing free-standing claw foot bath which they wanted to reuse.
Dimensions: ~ 2m x 3m
Cost: £10-15,000 including furniture
Once the room had been cleared, exposed and surveyed, with the floor lifted it became apparent that the room had been previously used as a bathroom, so hot, cold and soil pipe connections could be adapted and reused.
Floor – the existing floor had a notable gradient across the room, so this was levelled using graded batons and OSB board to create a flat, level floor. Durabase crack suppressant matting was fitted to provide a stable base for the floor tiling.
All sanitaryware was from Burlington Bathrooms except the bath which was re-used.
Toilet – low level floor free-standing with traditional exposed cistern with dual flush lever handle
Bath – enamelled single end, roll-top, chrome claw-footed bath
Bath taps – plumbed direct from the floor, 2 hole, cross-head mixer tap (re-used)
Basin – Burllington Classic, resting in a 2 door vanity unit, finished in Sand.
Basin Taps – Burlington Kensington Regent basin mixer
Shower – Burlington Avon exposed two outlet shower (overhead rose and handheld shower heads)
Shower enclosure – Eastbrook Volente offset quadrant shower enclosure with two sliding doors with chrome door handles. Set in a offset quadrant low-level tray.
Shower tiles – white gloss, bevelled Metro tile fixed in traditional brick pattern with 2mm grout lines in white
Wall tiles – were also white gloss, bevelled Metro tiles fixed in the traditional brick pattern to 1.05m high, because at the lowest point the ceiling was 2.4m so to ensure the room looked balanced the tiles needed to be fitted to below the half way point.
Floor tiles – Victorian Centro Budapest décor tile in black and white
Radiator – traditional laddered chrome towel rail radiator, positioned over the bath for easy access to warm towels, plumbed into central heating system.
Plus, a Butler and Rose Golden Eye traditional bathroom radiator, plumbed into central heating system.
Lighting – IP65 flush ceiling light, centrally located in the room.
– 2 x floor level LED spot lights, set into skirting board either side of basin cabinet to provide low level, PIR activated, soft night lights
