Mr & Mrs Aylward had an oddly shaped, small and dated traditional bathroom suite that needed modernising with a key focus on making the most of the available space with the relocation of key fixtures and fittings. Accompanying a poor layout, which made some areas tricky to managed, the room also housed a floor to wall, double doored, airing cupboard and an intruding chimney breast which created an unwanted alcove.
Mr & Mrs Aylward had no prior preferences other than the finished works to be modern and functional. Due to the size of the room, and its intruding features, space creation was the focus of the refurbishment project meaning More Bathrooms Surveyor & Designer, Garry, had a meticulous job on his hands.
Following a site survey, and near enough full rein, Garry proposed removing the bath, an immediate space enhancer, and installing a wet floor shower system. Using the alcove to his advantage, and not seeing it as a hindrance, Garry designed a room which was clean, clear, concise and unique.
Incorporating a run of furniture along right hand side provided an opportunity to semi-recess sanitary ware, as well as providing ample storage. The statement feature in this room however was the alcove wet floor system which was concealed behind a double hinged shower screen which essentially meant the area could be closed off, opening up the rest of the room, when the shower was not in use.
Moral of this refurbishment is that with careful planning, execution of clever design and being creative with fixture choices an oddly shaped, however small, bathroom project could form the basis of a completely unique modern renovation.
“We love our new wet room, it works really well for our lifestyle. Looks swish too! We did have one or two niggles along the way due to the awkwardness of the room which took time but a very professional job was done and the office staff, designers and fitters were lovely."
