Mediterranean Bathroom

I was commissioned last year to begin the transformation of a 4-bed family home in Northamptonshire. We have started with the first floor as the ground floor is a larger project to include planning permission for an extension, kitchen & utility room re-fit later this year. My client, who is Portuguese, wanted to evoke memories of home within the concept. Simple pared back styling and colours that would have longevity and create a backdrop for some of the beautiful work her mother has painted of their village in Portugal along with other pieces she has collected over the years. With 2 young children we needed a bathroom that would work for them but also double as a beautiful bathroom for guests to use too. The existing family bathroom had a shower over bath, so I was tasked with getting a separate shower and bath in there for her 4yr old & 12yr old plus a double wash basin. We achieved the final look by building a stud wall to lengthen the space we had to play with for the shower & bath & by choosing a 1600mm bath & 760mm shower tray we were able to fit both. I designed a bespoke washstand which was built by a superb local carpenter and finished with a marble top from a local company. My client was delighted with the results.’
