Creating the Perfect Period Bathroom
There’s nothing like a recommendation from a family member who is thoroughly satisfied, so when Amanda and Robert Gordon from Feckenham, Worcestershire were looking for a new bathroom in their period property, they listened to Amanda’s brother, who had been delighted with the products and service he’d received a while back.
The Gordons were looking to move their small shower room, and turn it into a bathroom, as they really wanted the use of a bath. They knew this would necessitate swapping rooms around upstairs, but felt this was a sacrifice worth making.
After a visit to Roman Bathrooms, and chatting to Caroline, plans were drawn up, and a survey undertaken. “We had a bedroom with a frosted window,” says Amanda. “I reckon it had once been used as a bathroom, so it made sense to re-locate things there.
But first the company had to check that the joists were suitable, and the existing outflow feasible to put a bathroom in.”
Plans were given the go-ahead, the bathroom design finalised, and the products then chosen. The couple live in an Arts & Crafts house, so were keen to incorporate as many period features and ‘looks’ as possible.
Work ran exactly according to proposed timings, and was performed in stages, and just a few weeks later, the couple had their new bathroom.
“We’re delighted,” says Amanda. “It’s even better than we’d imagined. The shower is so powerful, and the room looks beautiful. Caroline and her team were hugely knowledgeable and helpful – my brother’s recommendation was spot on!”
