Extended Tranquil Bathroom – Newport

The Start:

The bathroom was very important to this customer as a haven for relaxation. They wanted their existing tiny bathroom to be knocked through into their third bedroom, to make an ‘L-shaped’ shower and wetroom with freestanding bath. Overall the room needed to be highly modern, sleek, luxurious and feel peacefully spacious.

The Middle:

This project involved complex structural work such as removing the lathe and plaster dividing wall to create one smooth ceiling between the existing bathroom and bedroom, and blocking up the existing bathroom doorway on the landing to make it look as though it never existed. The old space was transformed into a new, raised wetroom and new storage was built into one long wall encompassing the chimney breast and alcoves on either side –all of which were hidden with sleek sliding doors covering the whole wall.

Luxurious touches came in the form of a large free standing bath in the middle of the floor with hidden pipework, under-floor heating throughout, with insulated and soundproofed dividing walls and floors to cut down on noise. A stud wall was strengthened to support a new his and hers wall mounted vanity unit. We feel exhausted just remembering all the work involved!

The Finish:

The customer was extremely happy with the end result, every element of the brief was fulfilled to the highest standard and dust and disruption to the family was kept to an absolute minimum. It was particularly pleasing to treat the existing space sympathetically whilst incorporating all the modern aspects, the new combined space looked as if it had always been one room.
