Traditional Shower Room Case Study | Dewsbury | West Yorkshire

Published: 12 February 2021


Mr & Dr Angus’ dated 4-piece bathroom consisted of a shower room enclosure, separate cast iron bath, pedestal basin and WC. Wanting a spacious, luxurious and high spec design Mr & Dr Angus wanted to convert the bathroom into a shower room with the installation of large walk-in shower, complimented with traditional fixtures and fittings.

Design solution:

Upon visiting our Mirfield bathroom showroom to view and gather further information on walk-in showers in a traditional bathroom design, Mr & Dr Angus were greeted by More Bathrooms Showroom Consultant, Dawn who discussed with them their renovation requirements.

Happy with the information received, Mr & Dr Angus booked a free design appointment for a More Bathrooms Designer to visit their home to view their bathroom and provide further design advice alongside providing a provisional quote dependant to Mr & Dr Angus’ final fixture and fitting choices.

Visited by More Bathrooms Senior Designer Julie, she discussed with Mr & Dr Angus their bathroom design wants and needs including removal of an unused cast iron bath to create additional space in their ‘galley’ layout.

Wanting traditional Victorian design features, to tie in with the rest of their home, and with a midnight blue feature wall being a must, Julie used her extensive knowledge to create a traditional bathroom design that encompassed the pop of colour.

Julie then invited Mr & Dr Angus back to our Harrogate Bathroom Showroom, to present them with a detailed CAD design allowing Mr & Dr Angus to envision their new shower room. Julie also discussed with them if they wished to make any changes and assisted them in viewing and choosing their final fixtures and fittings.

Traditional Shower Room Installation:

A spacious shower room with walk-in shower with bespoke Corian bench, traditional vanity basin, low rise WC and bidet was installed by More Bathrooms Multi-skilled fitter Graham.

As Dr Angus wanted a low maintenance wall covering, glossy white wall boards were installed in the shower area, which also made the suite feel more spacious by bouncing light around the room. Oak effect anti-slip vinyl flooring was also installed, both of which further accentuated the traditional design.

Savvy bathroom storage furniture included built in shower wall niches allowing Mr & Dr Angus to reach their bathroom amenities whilst showering and a Burlington vanity basin unit made in a traditional wooden design added to the Victorian feel of the shower room and provided much needed storage space.

To also tie in with the rest of their Victorian home, traditional finishing touches included Burlington glass vase wall lights and a Burlington chrome wall mirror that matched the rest of chrome bathroom brassware.


Mr & Dr Angus 4-piece bathroom was transformed into a spacious traditional shower room with a bespoke walk-in shower and traditional fixtures and fittings.
