Mr & Mrs Van Ness, Peterborough

Designer, Mark Lees


Ross & Heather came to Premier asking if we could give them a bathroom that would be more in keeping with their lovely traditional property. Over the years many re-fits had stripped away any resemblance of its former heritage, so I set about producing this design which has elements of the traditional mixed in with some modern features.


A walk-in style shower is very much what customers want today so this one from Roman Showers was incorporated along with a luxurious built in Roca double ended bath, the customers brief was "must have a good size bath" so a roll top was not an option as these can feel quite cramped. The heated towel rail is much more in keeping with the age of the property and will provide a good heat source as well as having somewhere to dry towels. Matching this with the wash basin and toilet, these are definitely pieces which bring back a period style.


Metro wall tiles are very much on trend today so these are a perfect choice with just half tiling in some areas topped off with a grey border. The use of Karndean flooring, in Riven Slate, gives a traditional look but with the warmth and comfort that this modern flooring provides. Storage is a must in any bathroom so simple mirrored wall cabinets are fitted plus a towel rack over the bath will provide somewhere to store clean towels.  I think you will agree that this beautiful traditional bathroom will serve this house and its owners for many years to come with a welcoming nod to its past.


If you cannot see what you require in our showrooms, please ask as we can build your dream bathroom whatever your style!
