Norwegian Inspiration

Bathroom

About

Our customer came to us after returning from her home country of Norway. She had recently purchased a property here and it required some updating. We worked closely to create a bathroom that had all her practical and design needs. The original space included a tiny bathroom, a separate shower and boiler room. We removed the dividing wall and incorporated space for a new hidden boiler, a good size shower and bath, and plenty of storage. She had very clear ideas when it came to style and design. This made for a comprehensive plan, vital as the installation happened while she was away in Norway. When she returned home, she was over the moon with the results as it was exactly as she imagined.

Detail

This highly contemporary, monochrome scheme in grey and white is smart and dramatic. We used the same deep grey tiles on the wall and floor creating a stark contrast against the white units and sanitaryware. A panel of textured d├ęcor tiles rises centrally from both the bath and the shower tray adding subtle detail and interest. We installed underfloor heating to provide a constant temperature and sufficient heat to dry towels. The bath is curved at one end allowing better access from the bedroom door. We installed deck mounted bath valves, bath filler, and a retractable showerhead all controlled by a three way diverter. The shower door is a frameless, hinged bifold. Both bath and shower have a shelf recess to place bottles and soaps. The run of high gloss white units includes the boiler housing and the wall hung WC with concealed frame and cistern below, a tall storage unit and a countertop basin unit with drawers below. The large rectangular basin and lit mirror above complements the layout perfectly. A lit recess above the WC and the mirror provide subtle, ambient lighting when full lighting is not required.
