A photo of the bathroom looking through the door to see the whole room. The same view before any work was done, showing the beige tiles and a lack of good storage.
A view of the new sink with brass wall spout and globe lighting either side of a round mirror above. The sink before was overlarge and off centre.

A small bathroom suffering from beige, bland tile overload and a lack of decent storage has been given a complete overhaul, with function and style at the top of the list of priorities.

A photo of the new built in cabinets under the sink with a white worktop which the sink sits on. Before this corner was unused and just had boxing for pipework in it.
A photo of the Crittall style shower screen, where you can see the brass shower valve through it. The photo shows that the shower wasn't here before, and there were just beige tiles here.
A photo of the new tap controls and handheld shower head in black. A photo showing that the shower was here at this end of the bath before the work was done.
A photo of the new brass shower head and valve with the square grid tiles around them.

A cleverly chosen overflow bath filler positioned in the middle of the bath means there are no taps to get in the way of showering or relaxing. A handheld shower is great for rinsing the kids or washing hair, whilst moving the main shower allows more head room.

A view of the shower screen looking through to the new bathroom. The old shower with a small shower head and dirty shower screen.
A photo of the new black radiator on the wall, with hooks above it.. A photo of the old chrome radiator which was too small.
A photo showing the new shelving above the bath.
A close up photo of the bespoke wall cabinets. A photo showing the old open storage shelving, which was squeezed in between the bath and the loo.
A view if the new sink and teal tiles behind at an angle. A photo of where the sink recess is, with the beige tiles and old shelving unit.

Warmth comes from the textured, tonal teal tiles and the mixture of brushed brass and matt black finishes. The grid like lines of the black grout on the small scale square tiles, echoed in the lines of the Crittall style shower screen, give a perfect contrast to the curves used throughout the room.

It all adds up to a look that is stylish, warm and completely balanced.
