Warm and sleek Family Bathroom in Claygate

  • Location Surbiton
  • Timescale 3.5 weeks

Our client came to us wanting to transform their mismatched bathroom into a warm and stylish space with personality. While the layout worked well, there were instant visual obstructions that stopped the room from flowing. Such as the bath taps on the side of the bath inhibiting the user to get in and out of the tub. Also the dark fixed unit where the basin and WC were fitted closed the room in. Therefore, we used wall-hung furniture and took inspiration from the stylish artwork our creative clients already owned; and used warm grey tones with different textures to excite the senses.

We created a warm feel to this family bathroom, taking inspiration from ornaments the couple had on display to bring their personality through into the design. By using the same tiles for the bath panel that are on the floor and back wall, we enhanced the feeling space.

The tall asymmetrical matt black finish heated towel rail by Zehnder creates a theatrical contrast to the warm tones running throughout the bathroom.

We designed the space with a wall-hung unit, as seeing more of the floor tricks the brain into the illusion of extra space. The unit is in soft grey to compliment the tiles. The built out shelf houses the WC cistern and plumbing while also doubling up as a convenient shelf to dress the bathroom. By adding recessed lights under the basin, we omitted shadows that can create a closed in feel.

The sleek basin and white Hansgrohe tap adds a bit of artistic drama to the room. While the mirrored cabinet offers a practical storage solution, the surround built-in light framing the mirror also offers dedicated lighting when using the mirror.
