Unconventional shaped en-suite in Thames Ditton

  • Location Thames Ditton
  • Timescale 4 weeks

This unconventional shaped en-suite was brought to us by our clients in Thames Ditton. With two doors in the room, angled steps and multi shaped windows,  this room required a great deal of consideration.

The room was long but didn’t offer a great deal of width. The layout of the windows and sloping ceiling, limited the options of where the shower could sit. Therefore, the crucial element was to have a minimal shower surround; to allow the eye to travel through to the end of the room – creating an illusion of space.

The original set up of this unconventional shaped en-suite, had a small basin opposite the steps and quite a bit of space between the small enclosed shower and the WC. This layout was wasting valuable and much needed usable space. Furthermore, the dark colours sucked out the light creating a gloomy feel to the room.

We built out the end wall to house the WC cistern – hiding the ugly pipes while also creating a shelf, ideal for scented candles or plants. We fitted a wide wall hung basin where once the space was under utilised. This not only offered a practical use of space but also gave the area some purpose. We kept the shower in the same place. However, by using a minimalist shower frame and low shower tray, it was as if the shower was not there. With the changes implemented, this unconventional shaped en-suite offered a space for an extra dressing area. With a bespoke Corian worktop, large mirror and stool this adds a beautiful yet practical dimension to the room.

The neutral colour pallet adds a warmth as do the different textures found on the floor, wall and units. Adding recesses also adds practical solutions and a spa quality to the design.

Our choice of Bathroom Eleven was based on a recommendation from a friend. We wanted a complete renovation of our family and en-suite bathrooms.
Bathroom Eleven provided a complete high quality design to installation service, which exceeded our expectations. All the tradesmen worked to a very high standard to deliver two beautiful bathrooms. The transformation is outstanding.

We created a dressing and make up area, using a bespoke Corian counter which complement the steps. Using a different texture on one wall to add interest while also tying in with the recessed shower shelf
