Project Complete: Islington N1
Today we are featuring a project we completed in Islington recently to update the main bathroom of a home where we were also extending the lower ground floor and installing a new kitchen. As our client had moved out for the duration of the project (always the best way!) they decided to update the bathrooms of the house at the same time.
The brief from our client was to create a traditional style bathroom in their Victorian house. Although the space in the closet extension of their home was very limited we managed to install the roll top bath the client had always wanted. Using a slipper bath rather than a standard roll top bath meant the room didn’t become too crowded.
We used bathroom fittings from Heritage Bathrooms for this project which have the traditional style needed. The slipper bath is delivered unfinished and we painted it in Farrow and Ball St Giles Blue to add a strong splash of colour to the room.
As we wanted to use a feature tile on the floor we kept the wall tiles very simple using a plain off white tile. Colour was added to the project by painting the walls in Farrow and Ball Lulworth Blue which compliments the bath colour. The custom-made furniture was also sprayed in the same colour to visually fade into the walls.
The brassware for this project came from Vado, we used the Kensington range as it has a traditional style. We also installed a ceiling mounted shower for the occasional times the room is used for showering. The pipework for the shower is concealed inside a false wall and up through the ceiling. In a small room it is often a good idea to conceal as much pipework as possible.
As a final feature for this bathroom we used floor tiles from Original Style to add some style and interest. The tiles feature Celtic-inspired circles and are 30cm square. The colour palette of blues and browns worked perfectly with the other aspects of the room.
Our client loves the bathroom and it has given them the roll top bath they have always wanted in a bathroom designed for modern living. The room perfectly combines traditional fittings with modern plumbing!
