On first view this room appeared extremely narrow and dark. One of the first things we changed was to make the obscure glass 'clear' as the house is surrounded by wonderful views. As you walk into the room your eye immediately now goes out to the horizon and has made the room feel twice as wide. Not only was this room quite narrow, but it also had quite a few quirky slopes which made planning where to put a shower quite difficult. In the end, we decided to reconfigure the walls by added a few stud walls and taking out an alcove on one elevation to make the room easier to design around. By adding the stud walls, we were able to use the void behind for neat storage within the shower. The clients wanted this room to feel very bright and uncluttered so we went for a simple white tile and laid it in herringbone style. By using the same colour grout, the pattern gives a wonderful texture to the walls but without feeling too busy. A marble floor with very large floor tiles gives an amazing seamless feel to what is quite a small floor space. A bespoke walnut vanity cabinet and pendant lighting really adds a touch of elegance to this relaxing fresh open space.
