Having installed a beautiful boutique family bathroom five years ago for our clients including a large walk-in shower with luxurious Bisazza mosaics, Kuche & Bagno were commissioned once again to transform their master en-suite into a soothing space with a spa feel.
There was a desperate need to update the en-suite bathroom with the original suite installed some eighteen years old in this coach house style property. The existing en-suite had a real wooden plank floor and half height timber cladding to the walls. However the client didn’t use the bath for some years as it wasn’t appealing to use, especially after the new boutique family bathroom was completed and the whole suite was difficult to clean with the amount of natural wood present, especially the floor.
It was imperative that the new space would be easy to clean and easy to access. Storage was central to the design and the newly formed stud wall was used to house the wall hung WC frame, the box niches to soften the wall and provide storage, as well as the bespoke super-sized mirror cabinets manufactured by Springburn Joinery.
The lighting scheme was essential and it was also important to get the right colour temperature. The beautiful bathroom chandelier central light fitting gave a softness instead of the norm with stark spotlights, while the special feature low level lighting brings a welcome night light along with lights under the basin for midnight trips to the bathroom.
"It’s a joy to come home to! The room is bright, calming and airy and it feels so spacious and comfortable to be in. The mirror cabinet is fantastic, everything is easy to access and it even houses my electric shaver and toothbrush."
NOTES FROM THE DESIGNER
I believe that having a tranquil space in the home where you can completely unplug from social media and media alike is essential for our well-being. A day bed is a great thing where you can relax during the day or evening reading a book which also doubles as a perfect seat to dress or undress and apply creams. It’s then a wonderful treat to use as a whirlpool/spa – it’s just like visiting a spa or health club in your own home and a perfect way to relax. We used a special metal profile to give the effect of floating walls. This allows for low level LED light detail at skirting level, controlled by a motion sensor it's a perfect night light.
"I wasn’t sure at first but the covers over the bath are brilliant, it’s great to be able to sit on."
