Georgian TownhouseTransitional Living Room
Commissioned by our client to work alongside their contractors and architects, we were asked to develop full plans for the renovation of this listed townhouse and its gardens on one of Bath’s iconic crescents. Our duties included fully detailed designs on every one of the house’s rooms including electrical plans and detailing on ironmongery and beyond. With a remit that included the design of all cabinetry, we built not only the hand-crafted kitchen but also the bespoke cabinetry of the dressing room and storage throughout. Our design ensured that existing furniture, art and the property’s stunning original features were seamlessly mixed and enhanced with new additions and sympathetic treatments. The result, a Georgian property given a respectful, contemporary new lease of life as a stylish family home in the heart of Bath.
What Houzz contributors are saying:
Decide on dado railsIf you’re a real purist, or are renovating a listed property like this Bath home, then it’s important to think about dado rails. However, if you prefer your walls to be uncluttered, this is one piece of detailing it’s probably ok not to reinstate – it’s better to have a beautiful cornice and skirting board. The original purpose of dado rails was to stop chairs from damaging the walls, so in a modern home with soft sofas and armchairs, they can be somewhat superfluous. If you decide to reinstate dado rails, consider having them installed slightly lower than tradition dictates, so your ceiling appears higher. The position of the dado rails in this beautiful living room is just above the seating level, so the walls stretch out to the ceiling and give a feeling of height.
