A Modern Bathroom For A Period Home In Wolverhampton
Putting together the right ‘look’ for an old house, with modern needs, always takes a little more care. So when Mary and Kevin O’Sullivan wanted to update their home, they came to us, as they’d been so happy with what we did for them a few years prior.
The couple wanted to update their en-suite bathroom. They had good ideas about what they wanted (keeping it similar in style to their family bathroom) but were open to suggestions from our designer too. This resulted in a smooth design process, with very few tweaks.
The work was fairly substantial on this room, as our builders had to remove three layers of tiles upon tiles, before they could even find the plaster! Once it was back to the original plasterwork, a lintel was installed above the door between the bathroom and bedroom to take the strain and then the process of installing the bathroom could begin.
On this job, dimensions were critical to ensure everything could fit into the room but thanks to careful planning, there were no problem. There’s a beautiful deep bath (with hand-held shower attachment), a suspended toilet (to add a feeling of space) and the exquisite marble-effect tiles, to add that feeling of hotel luxury.
The couple are delighted with the result. “People are loving it,” says Mary. “It’s real luxury and the bath is so comfortable and fills surprisingly quickly. We couldn’t be happier.”
