A bathroom refurbishment project in Hove. The aim was to create a peaceful space, with the bath as the centrepiece of the room.
The existing bathroom was around 8 years old, but the shower leaked & the bath took ages to fill & the bath filling valve was broken. There was also a lack of storage space in the room & the lighting was poor.
The client did not want to keep the shower & wanted the room to be very minimal. We suggested that a Scandinavian style may help to modernise the room, whilst also keeping the design simple. The client also wanted a certain element of classic design incorporated in the room, to reflect the Georgian property. As with any project, we completed a technical survey of the room & started with a provisional layout design. We also produced a 1st stage mood board with some design & finish ideas for the client to see.
We decided early on that we wanted to use the large Duravit LUV freestanding bath, in its matt white solid core material. The existing toilet was very bulky by the side of the door & due to the existing plumbing, we could not re-locate it. Therefore we “hid” a mounting frame & cistern in the stud wall & used a wall mounted toilet.
