Traditional Bathroom Case Study | Harrogate | North Yorkshire

Published: 5 November 2018

Bathroom Problem:

Ms Codjoe had an existing 4-piece bathroom that was tired in design and ready for a significant revamp. Consisting of an enclosed bath, shower cubicle, WC and basin the existing suite was outdated and required a keen eye to bring it back to life. Showcasing two framed pictures, these were the prized statement features in the room that would be returning following the completed renovation works.

Design Solution:

Following an initial consultation that took a more contemporary modern design direction, it soon became apparent that although Ms Codjoe wasn’t sure of how she wanted the finished renovation to look she did know what she didn’t want i.e. a contemporary modern design.

Deciding this wasn’t her style, and in keeping with the rest of the home, More Bathrooms Surveyor and Designer, Garry, decided to tone down the sleek and stylish 21st century look and instead opted to create a semi-traditional modern feel that was much more in keeping with the home and Ms Codjoe’s design preferences.

Keeping the layout the same the project aim was to revamp the existing suite and not to significantly redesign the room and as such the devil was in the detail of the chosen fixtures and fittings and of course the rehanging of the beloved paintings.

Installation Outcome:

With an enclosed bath to the left of the entrance there was a semi-recessed floor standing vanity basin unit in the arched alcove straight ahead. With a matching bath panel and storage cupboard doors the duck egg blue tone that was used created a rich and warm traditional aesthetic that really helped to add depth to the room.

Also featuring in the room was a wall hung wash and dry shower toilet and an enclosed, low step, shower enclosure. Tiled in the wet area and covering the entirety of the floor was a pastel patterned ‘vintage’ Moroccan tile that finished the room, and the renovation, of beautifully.

What Ms Codjoe said about More Bathrooms:

“Excellent service, workmanship and reliability. The work was completed within the predicted time frame with no disruption and the area was left clean and tidy.”
