Projects Featuring Lakes
Hotel, Russel St, Bath
This Hotel bathroom renovation was carried out one room at a time to keep the business fully functioning. The basins were carefully picked so that they provided a space for customer wash bags and toiletries. They are mostly wall hung for ease of cleaning the floor underneath usually with no furniture to reduce the chance of water damage by guests. The majority of the rooms had showers over the bath so guests have have the option of either the shower or the bath function. Steel baths were chosen for their strength and resilience to scratches and chemicals.
Most of the mirrors were illuminated with a built in shaver socket on the side to give a sleek appearance. They also had demister pads to stop them steaming up and even some had magnifying zones.
The toilets chosen were back to wall with the concealed cisterns housed in some tiled boxing that also provided a useful ledge and some shelves glass were added above for extra storage.
Easy to use taps and showers were picked so that guests could operate without any help or guidance.
The sleek rooms are minimal, calming and a classic hotel styling that was appropriate with the building.
Hotel, Weston Rd, Bath
Set in a stunning listed building this 5 star hotel project was for some of the classic and deluxe rooms. This room refurbishment project was carried out two rooms at a time over a period the business was closed for maintenance.
Some of the products that were in good condition were reused such as the basin, steel shower tray and the steel bath. Natural stone was used for the floor tiles. This beautiful Silver Travertine was also used for stunning matching slabs around the top of bath and as a worktop for the furniture with the toilet and basin.
The walls in the shower area were clad in coloured glass sheets that were ultra practical as they are so easy to clean with no grout to worry about. This also gave a very high end finish with a fresh appearance for many years to come.
Magdalen Ave, Bath
This room had an awkward sloping roof that constricted the design layout. The back to wall toilet was best positioned at the lowest height point to give maximum head room for the basin & shower. The concealed toilet cistern was then hidden in the lowest point of the roof.
The wall mounted basin and furniture unit was short projection which means that it does not stick out too much into the room. The furniture had one large drawer and a smaller hidden drawer to give additional storage. It gives the appearance for more floor space being wall mounted and the stud wall behind allowed the waste pipe to be hidden.
The shower has a stunning storage recess in the corner which has LED lighting to finish it off. The clever use of mosaic tiles is carried on behind the basin to tie the whole room together.
Church St, Bath
The stylish shower room really does stand out with the great use contrasting tiles in the shower and behind the basin. The illuminated mirror really helps to bring out the accent colour with the blue LED glow. This mirror can easily be adjusted to the users preference of brightness and colour temperature as well as being steam free and touch-less switch.
The fashionable, special finish basin mixer and shower system are bang on trend and give a very boutique look to the room.
In the bathroom the back to wall bath has achieved a freestanding look that gives the feeling of luxury which is highlighted by the darker contrasting tiles behind. The back edge of the bath is sealed to the wall which is water tight and easy to clean. It also helps if you are conscious of space and they tend to be easier to install too. The large recess alcove above the bath allows plenty of space for candles and toiletries. There is also a large bespoke mirror above the bath which gives the illusion of a larger room and helps reflect light around.
Under Knoll, Peasdown St John
Fitted furniture has been used to great effect here as the cupboard under the basin creates storage and the worktop provides a very useful surface for resting toiletries. The basin and worktop are an integrated all in one piece made out of a waterproof, mineral resin. This means that it is very hygienic and easy to clean with no silicone to worry about. It can be cut and finished on site and so no long lead times. The furniture also helps to hide the unsightly pipework.
The shower bath also has a colour matching bath panel to help tie the whole theme together. The patterned floor tiles give the whole room a classic style with a hint of modern boutique.
