Customer O'Farrell


Another stunning transformation for our lovely customer in Hamilton. The customer was great, they had a good idea what they wanted to achieve – if possible, they wanted a bigger shower area, metro tiles, some storage space and something contemporary and modern on the floor.

Their tiny shower space with bi-fold door was driving them crazy and the six-inch step into the shower wasn’t the most practical nor aesthetically pleasing aspect of the room. The ‘builders spec’ beige wall and floor tiles were uninspiring, and the basin and pedestal was not only dated but offered them no storage space – the bathroom was a place to have a quick shower and leave as soon as possible.

Bryan worked with the client to design a modern ‘instagrammable’ bathroom with very ‘on-trend’ aspects like the 300×100 metro tiling with black grout to compliment the matt black fittings in the shower, heated towel rail, basin tap and flush button. We knocked through into an adjacent cupboard to open up the space and allow us to fit a full length 1700×800 walk-in shower tray, fitted flat on the floor.

The large 1200 fixed wetroom screen ensures the water stays in the shower (even with their new large drench head and separate pencil handset in matt black) but really opens up the room making it feel airy and spacious. The customer’s daring choice of basin unit in Matt Antique Rose really worked with the black basin tap and beautiful pink waterlily feature floor tile laid in a star pattern.

We built a bulkhead to house the concealed cistern which also gives the customer a useful ledge for all their bathroom accoutrements and the simple large backlit heated mirror with sensor switching finishes the room perfectly and will look amazing when the customer chooses their wall covering – knowing their style, we’re confident it will be stunning.
