Projects Featuring Laufen
Housing Development, Tyning Road, Bathampton
A perfect example of a mid-high end new build housing development of plots with 4-5 bathrooms. The large double basin and wall hung vanity unit in the master en-suite gives the feeling of opulence. The ready assembled fitted furniture used in the other bathrooms helps hide the pipework and adds also ticks the box for the requirement for much needed storage with our modern day lifestyles.
The lighting under the furniture gives subtle mood lighting which can be extremely useful when using the room in the night or when winding down in the bathtub.
Hulbert Close, Corsham
This bathroom was converted into a practical and magnificent wetroom for a customer with mobility issues. The previous layout only had a bath tub which could not be used by the customer.
It was converted into a easy access wetroom with level floor which involved chasing the shower tray former and waste into the concrete floor.
The toilet cistern and the basin frame/waste pipes were all hidden in a false wall which resulted in a easy to clean room with sleek and minimal appearance.
A recessed illuminated mirror cabinet gave extra storage whilst not impeding on the room space.
Fold down grab rails were added either side of the toilet for support when transferring to the pan and the basin was wall hung to allow space for a wheelchair underneath.
A wonderful job installed by You Love Bathrooms
The show stopping centerpiece in this design really is the wall mounted vanity unit with beautiful vessel washbowl and illuminated mirror. The worktop on the vanity furniture is a slim waterproof mineral resin material which is practical and modern. To keep the sleek look the illuminated mirror not only has a demister pad but also has a integrated charger socket so the nearby walls don’t require an ugly charger socket.
The wall hung toilet has a matching piece of furniture to house the cistern and frame in the same finish as the vanity unit so it is all coordinated.
The bath has been slightly brought off the back wall, boxed in and tiled. This has allowed room for a large recess box and to give the high end look has been illuminated along with the bath front panel.
The shower door is a clever infold door that looks minimal like a normal pivot door but it opens half in and half out to avoid colliding with anything directly in front of the door. Another stunning installation by Aquabathrooms.
Installed by Oakley Creations this stylish bathroom complimented the original features of this period property.
The matt black brassware, mirror, flush plate, heated towel rail and wall lights complement the original cast iron fireplace bringing the whole scheme together.
The long and thin room fits the freestanding bath down one end perfectly whilst still allowing good access to the toilet and basin area. This is helped by the curvy shape of the bath (when compared to a rectangular one) which is made of a strong mineral resin material which also has good insulating properties too.
The wall hung toilet has some tiled boxing behind to hide the cistern and frame. And the wall mounted basin with vanity unit also allows for more of the floor to be exposed giving the illusion of a larger room and making it easy to clean.
The subtle wall lights either side of the mirror and above the bath are not only bang on trend but also give a relaxing tone to the room and highlight the ceiling beam which adds character.
The sloping ceiling caused a few complications with this shower room design which meant that a bespoke shower enclosure was needed. A digital shower was also used which took advantage of the roof space above. The coloured and textured shower tray blended well into the floor tiles and has anti-slip properties. Being a tray with no tiles or grout lines means it is far easier to keep clean compared to wetroom trays.
The gorgeous wall hung basin has a very handy slab to the side of it for resting toiletries and the vanity unit below has an aluminium, handle-less drawer front which is very water resistant. The illuminated mirror with demister pad and bluetooth connection with speakers also has task lighting and for mood lighting there is a wall light above. For even more storage there is a wall mounted tall boy to the side.
In the master en-suite and bathroom there are wide, bespoke wall hung vanity furniture units and double vessel basins which allow for storage and a practical worktop to rest all your toiletries.
The illuminated mirrors above also give useful task lighting and glamorous mood lighting. They also have integrated demister pad to keep them steam free whilst showering and touchless sensor switch.
The master en-suite also has an elegant large recess box in the wall for storage of shampoo bottles and soaps. As the walls were solid brick, this was achieved by creating a false wall which also housed the wall hung toilet frame/cistern which was located at the far end of the walk-in shower.
