A tranquil yet dramatic oasis in Esher

  • Location Long Ditton
  • Timescale 4 weeks

Our clients brief of a tranquil design for their son’s bathroom, was brought to life by combining natural textures and tones.

The chestnut browns blended with golden oak grains within the Heartwood tiles from Minoli, add a warmth throughout the room. Working with the natural black stone and gunmetal brassware. Creating a dramatic, but tranquil feel.

The offset stone bath from Ashton & Bentley, creates a sense of space with the curved ends. Allowing extra floor around the base to be visible, which gives the illusion of a wider space. This is contrasted by the mansion weave wood effect tiles on the lower wall, and board style planks on the floor.

A black crittall shower screen creates a dramatic yet sleek element to the design. A wide recess shelf with spot lights creates a calm layered effect, while maintaining a tranquil and fuss free look. It is also very practical and negates the use of wire baskets protruding into the shower space.

Pale large format tiles in the shower area, balance the darker tones in the basin and radiator, maintaining a tranquil oasis. The basin offers plenty storage and the large towel rail adds a further aesthetic dimension to the design.

The process

  • before

  • plans

  • 3d

  • after

Adam, Ben, Winston and Vasile are a spectacular team, from design to execution, communication was top notch and the results are breath-taking.
Design: We decided to do 3 bathrooms and a cloakroom all at once. We came with a reasonably strong sense of the style we wanted; spa-like zen spaces, wood-look, flat shower floors & then went more wild with the cloakroom...Adam was able to interpret these concepts and make them even better through clever design, choice of materials, practical thinking & design flair. Fundamentally, he has a great eye and is brilliant at building on nuggets of ideas and making them reality (only better!).

Execution: Ben led the execution team & the great thing is that Winston and Vasile are extremely competent with great attention to detail so you never felt like it was relying on one person being on site. The communication between the team was extremely good. Inevitably, things go wrong sometimes with suppliers, or you discover issues you didn't know about until you rip the walls apart; the team is great at finding solutions. I would go to any of these guys if I had another project, indeed we are already planning a kitchen re-build and will definitely use Bathroom Eleven when we do this.

I don't normally leave reviews, but I love the fact that we have this quality so local! Definitely can't recommend highly enough

We added a wide recessed shelf in the shower, inlaid with mansion weave effect wood tiles, tying in with the wall behind the bath and basin areas. Lit with small down lights, creating a warmth to the design.

Small black stone shelves have been put either side of the oval bath, allowing easy reach for items while creating an area for leafy plants to complete the tranquil effect.
