Projects Featuring VADO
Main Road, Nottingham
A project including a bathroom, en-suite and cloakroom. This En-suite included a digital shower and wall panelling that is quick to install and easy to clean. A solution to storage issues was to install a basin and vanity unit with practical worktop space. And don’t forget the stunning freestanding bath in the soft pebble shape to finish off a classic look to the whole room.
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.
The wetroom tray former is cut into the floor to give a large, flush shower area with the expertly cut tiles. This gives space for an impressive double entry walk in shower with one simple glass screen supported by two arms. You normally require at least 2m width to fit a double entry shower in an for it to work correctly. The underfloor heating is an efficient way of heating the room and will dry up any standing water from showering keeping the room free from damp.
The recess box in the shower allows for stylish storage without impeding on the user space that a wire basket would.
The floor standing vanity unit gives maximum storage in what would be wasted space underneath the basin. There is also subtle storage above in the recessed illuminated mirror cabinet. Being sunk into the wall means that it gives the feeling of more space and the lights on it allow for task lighting when using the mirror. Inside the cabinet the charger socket allowing for toothbrushes an shavers to be hidden away out of sight.

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.
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, Saltford
The striking main feature of this project is the freestanding bath which stands pride of place in front of the large sash window and in main view when you walk into the room. Its white colour stands out proud in contrast to the dark painted walls and the industrial style grey tiles. This room can take the striking darker shades due to large amount of daylight let in by the tall window.
One tall column radiator has been used to the left of the window to supply heating to the large room whereas a smaller ladder style heated towel rail to the right of the window is used for drying the towels.
The large 1200mm wide basin gives the feeling of opulence and the large areas either side of the bowl allow for practical surfaces to rest toiletries. The basin is resting on a chrome stand which can offer support of the basin weight and also provide a hanging space for a hand towel. It also helps to create the feeling of more room space as the frame is minimal and reflective allowing for more of the wall and floor to be seen.
Distinct colour changing LED mood lighting has been used in the shower recess boxes and around the toilet boxing to give this room the wow factor.

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.
This project began as a real challenge for our designer Rob. The bathroom is set in the underground basement of the property which presented a maze of tight turns for bringing products into the room and a low sloping ceiling within the bathroom itself making tiling and product placement quite difficult.
Rob utilized the existing layout of the bathroom to take advantage of one alcove for the bath/shower, building out a wall to accommodate the hidden shower valve and to add a storage space. All of the units used are low profile to provide the maximum amount of storage space whilst making the room feel larger. This is coupled with pale tiles and surfaces, and well-placed lighting to counteract the lack of natural light.
A particularly clever trick was the use of underfloor heating…in the walls! This has turned what was previously quite a cold and damp space into a warm, dry and welcoming bathroom.
The final result is a bright warm space with plenty of storage and room to move.
A lovely clutter free design has been produced here by our designer Rob to make the best use of space. Space saving products and concealed plumbing has been cleverly utilised across the bathroom.
The use of a wall mounted unit and toilet helps to make the space feel bigger as well as helping to make cleaning easier around these areas. The concealed cistern unit creates a nice deep shelf above the basin which has been finished with a bespoke granite and marble worktop. This section has been beautifully finished with some lighting below the basin unit.
Nuance wall panels have been used in the shower which creates a smooth finish with hidden seams and no end trims required. Where the wall has been built out to accommodate the shower valve and controls, they have taken advantage of the cavity to add a small alcove/shelf for the shower essentials.
In the images you will be able to see some our 3D designs created by Rob when he was designing the bathroom for the customer.
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.
