This week I wanted to write about a project we completed recently in Four Oaks, Sutton Coldfield, near Birmingham. It was an interesting project as the client contacted us with a brief centering around bringing a separate bathroom and toilet together, to create a really impactful family bathroom.

We spoke with the client at length about what exactly they wanted to achieve from the project. Besides the removal of the dividing wall, the main objective was to include a freestanding bath as well as a large walk in shower.

First stage was to create the whole space by taking down the dividing wall between the toilet and bathroom. We then stripped back all of the remaining walls ready for the blank canvas we needed to get this room really taking shape.

Once we had our blank canvas, we found that behind the existing shower boxing there was a step in the wall. We overcame this issue by creating a new stud wall, the entire length of the wall up to the door, for the new shower area to fit against.

Another key part of the project was the re-build of the airing cupboard. This housed the clients combi boiler and was therefore a really important part to get right in order to not compromise the sleek, clean design result that we were aiming for. We finished this off with a pair of mirrored doors which reflect the light from the window beautifully as well as offering a smooth, clean lined finish.

Personally, I really loved the choice of freestanding bath. It makes such an impact in this new bathroom the moment you enter the room. The client was also incredibly pleased with the result and gave us the following feedback:

Absolutely delighted with what has been achieved, better than we expected. Desire have created a sleek, modern bathroom whilst retaining plenty of floor space. Delighted that the project was also completed on time, on budget and with no hidden costs.

The brands of materials we used for this project were: Grohe, Aqua trend, Rak – Frontline.
