Barnes Town House

This is a lovely 6 bedroom Georgian town house and we were invited to work on a number of its rooms. The clients really wanted their guests to have a hotel experience when staying with them so that was the criteria when designing and fitting the guest ensuite bath and shower rooms.

The front of house is quite traditional and the back, with its extension, is more modern. The larger front guest ensuite had space for a walk in shower and bath. We installed these on a risen platform with a fall and drainage so that there was no need for a shower screen creating a "wet area".

To maintain a traditional feeling, we added bespoke panelling with hidden storage above the wall mounted toilet. This was all made in our workshop and then hand painted on site.

The Shaker style bespoke vanity unit is composed of solid oak drawers with dovetail joints.

The worktop is composite stone making it resistant and easy to clean. The taps and shower column are Samuel Heath, toilet Burlington and a lovely freestanding Victoria and Albert bath completes the traditional mood. The tiles are marble with hand crafted ceramic tiles on the back wall.

The 2nd guest bathroom is located at the back of the house and is more modern, It is also a smaller space so we wanted to keep it clean and bright as well as contemporary, without overshadowing original features like the high ceilings and cornice.

Everything was pared down with white spray lacquered, flat panelled doors. We added the oak recessed finger bar and bespoke oak shelf to help emulate the large trees outside.

There wasn't as much space in this ensuite so we created a large walk in shower instead of trying to fit a bath in too. The floor tiles are Carrara marble, worktop is Corian, tapware is Hansgrohe Axor and the shower screen is bespoke.
