Modern Family Bathroom & En-suite Shower Room Case Study| Wetherby | West Yorkshire

Published: 14 August 2020


Upon purchasing a new home, Mr & Mrs Cull wanted to update the previous owner’s well-kept monochrome 3-piece bathroom suite and a spare bedroom into a modern 4-piece bathroom and create an en-suite shower room. In addition to creating bathing and showering spaces that bettered suit their personal style, before moving into their new property they also hoped to include additional bathroom storage for their bathroom amenities.


Following booking a free design appointment online, Mr & Mrs Cull were visited in their new home by More Bathrooms Senior Designer Julie to discuss their wants and needs for both their new family bathroom and bedroom to master en-suite shower room conversion.

With Mr & Mrs Cull being very open to design ideas, Julie used her knowledge and expertise to create two modern and spacious suites, inclusive of savvy storage solutions.

Upon the creation of their detailed CAD designs, Mrs Cull visited our Harrogate Bathroom Showroom to view, discuss and finalise with Julie their fixtures, fittings and finishing touches. As Mr & Mrs Cull were temporarily living down south, Julie also kept them well informed through regular phone call and emails.

For the family bathroom project, additional space was created by moving a dividing wall to take additional space from the spare bedroom and by redesigning the layout make better use of the available space.

For the fixtures and fittings, the main focal point was a sleek slim line free standing bath with floor mounted chrome taps. In addition to a large walk-in shower, back to wall toilet and wall hung twin Jack and Jill vanity basins units that offered bathroom storage and heated towel rail.

For the finishing touches Julie recommended partial tiling and covering the rest of the walls with white paint, to save on costs for Mr & Mrs Cull whist still brightening up the suite. Alongside porcelain floor tiles. Large grey and white marble effect ceramic tiles where chosen for the shower and basin area to create a contemporary feel.

To create the illusion of additional space and compliment the minimal wall coverings, large mirrors were installed to bounce natural light around the room, provided by the large window. Alongside recessed ceiling lighting and feature LED bathroom lighting.

For the master en-suite project, and making the most of the limited space, a spare bedroom was transformed into a contemporary walk-in shower room that featured a run of semi-recessed fitted furniture that housed the concealed cistern WC and basin.

Finishing touches included luxurious gloss shine ceramic tiles in shower and basin area, walls painted grey and ceramic porcelain bathroom tiles. The glossy tiles also helped to create the illusion of more space by bouncing natural light provided from the large window around the suite. Contemporary touches included LED ceiling lights and a heated towel rail.


Mr and Mrs Cull’s bathroom and spare bedroom was transformed into a fresh and modern family bathroom and en-suite with savvy storage solutions to store their everyday bathroom essentials.

The new suites consisted of on trend minimalistic fixtures and fittings with contemporary finishing touches. The inclusion of different layers of lighting was included to create a bright and spacious atmosphere.
