Wild Botanical family bathroom in Esher

  • Location Esher
  • Timescale 4 weeks

The inspiration for this wild botanical design, came from our clients brief for a modern take on a pink floral look.

The existing family bathroom had a very small corner shower squeezed beside the bath, making the area fussy. Our clients’ wanted a spacious shower while keeping a separate bath. To create this space, we removed a built in cupboard, on the opposite wall, and moved the WC from under the window. Placing it where the cupboard once stood. This gives the user more privacy, as not overlooking a window.

We placed a freestanding bath by Ashton & Bentley up towards the middle of the room. Creating a seamless design with a floor standing bath tap in brushed nickel. This allowed plenty of space for a walk in shower. A recessed shelf hides the pipe work, and provides a shelf for shower bottles to be easily accessible. The main body of the room is tiled with large format Bianco matt tiles by Minoli. With the recessed part in wild botanical pink tiles by Ca ‘Pietra, bringing a meadow feel to the design.

A recessed shelf has also been created above the WC, with the wall built out to hide the cistern. This complements the shower and basin areas, with the Wild Botanical tiles tying the design together.

The double push to open drawer basin unit by Dansani, provides lots of storage while adding a warm feel with a Nordic Oak finish.  Brushed nickel brassware elevates the modern take on the floral brief.

Just outstanding. That’s the long and short of the guys at Bathroom & Kitchen Eleven. If you don’t read any further than this, that’s all you need to know.

The first thing to stress is Adam and co genuinely stood out from the competition.

I guess in all home projects there’s the task of getting multiple quotes, then working out the quality versus price conundrum. But in this case Adam was so far ahead of anyone else we spoke to that in the end there was barely a decision to make. His ability to look beyond the four walls (or in our case five or six walls with weird angles) and bring something exciting to life is hugely impressive.

We asked Bathroom Eleven to do two bathrooms. We have a fairly old house, with all the quirks that come with it. On the face of it there seemed a real limit to what someone could do, beyond replacing the products and giving the rooms a facelift (which is all the competition could propose to us). Fast forward a few weeks and we are staring at two unrecognisable, stunning bathrooms, imagined and designed by Adam, and installed by two of the most dedicated and skilled fitters you could ever hope to meet in Winston and Vasile.

In truth ‘fitters’ doesn’t do them justice, they’re also problem solvers. If they discover minor or major headaches along the way they have an incredibly wide set of skills to draw on to enable them to rise to the challenge that Adam’s mind sets. And they do so in a refreshingly polite and conscientious manner, accompanied by a single-minded attention to detail.

On a broader level they’re just a lovely bunch of people. There’s nothing flashy, showy or salesy about them. It’s friendly, attentive, and down to earth, with nothing being too much trouble for them. Ben and Adam are very responsive and I genuinely believe they know everything that’s going on with every single project they have, at any given moment.

Top marks. First rate. Thank you guys.

We removed a built in cupboard on the end wall. Moved the WC from under the window, and put it where the cupboard once stood. Creating a more private space away from the door.

Brushed nickel elevates the design. As does a floor standing bath tap, creating a sense of space and fuss free design.

Wild botanical tiles adds colour to the design, bringing the three (shower, basin & WC) zones together. While recessed shelves in the shower and above the WC create handy pockets to dress the room.
