Projects Featuring Merlyn & Arysto Showers
Granville Road, Bath, Housing Development
A mid-high end housing development/new builds in Bath with 4-5 bathrooms per plot. Beautiful detached new builds with a small downstairs cloakroom and a range of elegant en-suites and a bathroom. Tiled boxing is a easy solution that helps to hide the toilet frame and pipework. Additional mood lighting was added underneath the furniture to give a relaxing atmosphere.
Sydney Road, Bath
A very interesting project in collaboration with Charlotte Langley Interior design. This grade listed Georgian property had a previous life as office space but has been painstakingly converted back into this residential grand mansion. The 7 bathrooms ranged from cloakrooms, bathrooms and wetrooms to the jewel in the piece which was the spacious Master En-suite. This room had a luxurious bespoke double basin, bespoke double entry wetroom shower and built in bath, all clad in a stunning natural marble. The sizeable space had plenty of room left for an extensive run of wardrobes for the ultimate in opulence.
Trossachs Drive, Bath
This wetroom makes a real statement with the dark wall tiles and furniture. The room includes a clever recess storage box in the shower wall. The tiled shower floor butts up to the the side of the bath allowing a space saving layout that leaves room to fit in a large basin with furniture underneath.
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.
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.
The Glen, Saltford
Installed to a high finish by Aquabathrooms, this relaxing bathroom is spacious and modern.
The large quadrant corner shower allowed easy access into the room where a square or rectangular one would cause a pinch point at the corner.
The wall mounted basin with vanity unit has easy to organise drawers and a swivel basin mixer where the spout can pivot out the way for face washing etc. The illuminated mirror cabinet not only has task lighting on the front and mood lighting underneath but also has demister pads to stop the glass steaming up when showering. There is also a charger and USB socket inside to keep everything hidden away and tidy.
The bath has been boxed in with alluring lighting and recess box for candles and soaps to help unwind at the end of a long day.
Wellington Buildings, Bath
These traditional styled rooms were installed by the team at Aquabathrooms. In the cloakroom they have made a feature of the wall mounted basin pipework by using a matching chrome finish. The striking red painted tongue and groove wall panelling adds to the look and nicely ties the theme together with the matching red high level toilet cistern. As well as the red accent colour they have nicely matched the oak floor with the solid oak throne toilet seat.
The other larger shower room has a one piece under mounted basin and worktop which means it is far more easy to clean and hygienic. There is also a floorstanding vanity unit below for storing away those unsightly spare toilet rolls and bleach. The painted tongue and groove wall panelling looks splendid with the matching low level toilet cistern and toilet seat.
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.
Bath Road, Keynsham
Mood lighting has given this room a real wow factor. The false ceiling has been slightly lowered to allow for a soft LED lighting around the edge in a recess. This can create a relaxing ambiance for bathing. The downlights are installed in the false ceiling to give task lighting. The small LED spot lights in the furniture and bath plinths also help to give a glamorous look and the mirror cabinet finishes the room off with matching lights.
The gloss grey finish on the fitted furniture helps to reflect the light just as the wall tiles do making for a bright and fresh room.
Northampton St, Bath
The pipework behind the toilet and basin has been cleverly hidden in some tiled half height boxing. This also creates a handy shelf running the full length of the room. Another advantage with this boxing is that the mirror cabinet no longer protrudes over the basin so there is no risk of hitting your head.
The floorstanding vanity unit under the basin and the mirror cabinet give maximum storage for all your toiletries, spare loo roll and bleach.
The shower enclosure has a infold door which is a smart solution where the door opens half in and half out reducing the chance of the glass colliding with the wooden door into the room. The shower head has been mounted flush into the ceiling to allow for more head room.
A bright colour scheme has been carried through this room with the white freestanding bath with white bath feet, the matt white vanity furntiure and mirror cabinet, the white toilet seat and the white brick style tiles. The walls have been painted in a subtle pastel shade to give a clean and fresh looking traditional bathroom.
Installed by the skilled Roger from Artizan Bathrooms
The existing bathroom in this property (shown in the photo reel) was pleasant enough but our designer Rob and the fitter succeeded in bringing it fully up to date with a light, modern look.
Using a combination of Roper Rhodes furniture and brassware, significantly more storage was added to the room. The vertical beam that pushes into the room by the window was incorporated into the design by using a slimline unit in conjunction with the regular units, and a single-piece worktop to give a smooth run of furniture and concealed cistern.
The Merlyn tray required a raised plinth to accommodate the waste. Rather than using a leg set, the fitter has built a plinth the length of the room which ensures that the shower is incorporated into the room without looking out of place, and providing a separate raised area that brings some variation to the room without losing space.
Although the wall panelling in the showering area is made up of multiple panels, rather than using chrome end trims for each panel, the Nuance panels are bevelled and fit together to give a truly seamless look.
The pictures in this project show both the before and after, quite a transformation!
This customer had a relatively large room to utilize and our designer Lee did a fantastic job making the most of the space available. It’s also worth noting that all of the communications with the customer were done remotely, the entire design and ordering process was done via video calls, phone calls and email!
The flooring in this room has allowed concealment of many parts of the plumbing which means that a flat shower tray, flush to the floor was able to be used. It has also meant that the bath can be completely free standing with the mixer tap being adjacent and no unsightly plumbing visible at all.
A similar approach has been taken with the toilet unit, which is wall hung to give a very modern and clean look, with the cistern concealed in the wall. This has created a small alcove on the side of the room containing the bath and gives a lovely cosy effect and space for the customer’s plant to be located. The basin taps are also wall mounted with the plumbing concealed, above a lovely freestanding basin to match the bath.
Two towel warmers have been used in the room. This means that you’re never too far from a fresh warm towel, whether you’re in the shower or in the bath, and also it means that there is more than adequate heating available for the room. Within the shower the controls have been mounted towards the entrance of the shower which means that the temperature can be adjusted until it’s just right, before getting under the shower itself.
We have included pictures of the 3D designs that Lee created for the customer so that you can see how the design progressed from plans to reality.
