About this project
My clients have recently taken advantage
of the fact that their children have now
grown up and left the family home, with
some enjoyable breaks away on luxury cruise ships with
gorgeous spas. It was this that led them to the idea that
they wanted to treat themselves to a luxury, boutiquestyle
bathroom just like the ones they had seen on these
Features which particularly appealed to them were
the wetroom look. My client loves the sea so it was
important to her that the colour blue was incorporated
into the design in some way.
We chose luxury Bisazza Grigio Azzurro mosaics,
which reflect a stunning sea-blue shade and create a
focal point in the shower area, and contrast beautifully
against the neutral Vitra neo-quartzite wall and floor
tiles throughout this space. A lighter shade of Onyx
mosaic tiles, in aqua, provide the perfect backdrop to
the niche, which was designed to accommodate the tall
lotion bottles which the clients prefer to use.
A Duravit SensoWash, wall-hung shower-toilet
adds another dimension to the luxury element as this
provides a toilet and bidet experience in one. A sleek,
mirrored glass Geberit Sigma80 flush plate completes
the modern look. A highly polished Bisque Chime
radiator, in stainless steel, creates an attractive design
feature on one wall.
In the walk-through shower area, an Impey shower
panel opens up the space with an Aqua-Dec floor
former and a large, wall-mounted Hansgrohe Raindance
overhead shower E420 Air 2jet for the wow factor. An
award-winning Hansgrohe eco-friendly PuraVida hand
shower with three jets, from shower rain to massage,
provides further spray options.
A Keramag Design bathroom vanity unit
with basin, Preciosa II by the designer Bernd
Brohammer, combined with an Axor PuraVida tap
add a sophisticated, yet simplistic, finish. A striking,
illuminated Halo mirror above, from Bathroom Origins,
allows for a variety of tasks from applying make-up to
shaving in this space, and effortlessly creates a focus
point and makes the space feel bigger.
Florida accessories, such as the soap dispenser,
provide the perfect finishing touches. Swarovski crystals
provide an additional design element for a luxurious
finish and adorn the toilet brush holder and towel rail as
the client is fond of holistic therapy and loves crystals.
Under-floor heating provides further luxury.
