A Luxurious Chic Boutique Bathroom
When Janet bought her fabulous city centre loft apartment she was delighted but knew that the bathroom did not match her expectations. Janet had a concept of what her ideal bathroom would look like but was not able to visualise it until she met Caroline.
“Caroline immediately understood my vision and was able to show me the art of the possible,” says Janet. “I was comfortable that I was in safe hands and was confident to trust the project to Caroline and her team.” So confident in fact that Janet went away on holiday once the design was ready and left the Roman Bathroom fitters in the apartment to get on with the work undisturbed.
This could have been considered risky by some as living in an apartment meant that the neighbours had to be considered as well, with the disturbance and noise kept to a minimum and no out of hours working, but Janet said, it all went brilliantly. “Max and Brian were amazing as it was not an easy project but they kept all the mess contained and were extremely neat and tidy.”
The design of the room plays on the industrial heritage of the building blended with a sophisticated palette of soft greys with textured anthracite and pearl tiles that add a luxurious shimmer.
The main feature is the spacious walk in shower with a stunning drench head that includes chromotherapy lighting. Lighting is one of the things that Janet loves most about the new bathroom, she says, “I was worried as the room has no natural light but Caroline has introduced so many options. I can have bright and functional or change the mood totally to a more relaxed ambiance with different levels of light and colours.”
Storage was another key element of the design as ensuring that all the clutter is hidden from view has maintained the sleek and sophisticated feel to the design. This has been achieved with strategically placed recesses, double drawers in the basin unit and the introduction of an invisible cabinet behind the mirror.
“I would absolutely recommend Caroline and the team at Roman,” says Janet. “Their levels of customer service are truly outstanding. They not only delivered the most beautiful bathroom but helped me source and install a new electric heating system when the old gas boiler gave up and the most fantastic remote controlled blinds – they solved all my problems efficiently and without fuss.”
