Bathroom project in Stepney Green, E1
Delighted to share one of my recent projects with you this morning - a bathroom renovation in E1, London. This bijou bathroom was crying out for a revamp, with its magnolia walls, Lino floor and small shower/bath set up. There was also a real lack of storage, not to mention an ugly electric towel rail…
The client loved the look of patterned encaustic tiles so we created drama on the floor with these tiles from London Encaustic who colour matched the teal for us to create a bespoke look. There was a run of pipes behind the toilet and sink, so we built this up and boxed them in to create a shelf to display accessories and pretty potions and lotions. Running the floor up this shelf takes the eye upwards and lengths the sense of space in the room.
The vanity unit from Lusso Stone works perfectly in the space, and answers the need for storage with the built in drawer. The delicate frame avoids any feelings of ‘boxiness’ and ensures the sink area doesn’t feel too dominant and heavy. The black fixtures are also taken through into the taps, shower and mirror as well as smaller details including the toilet roll holder and the shelf in the shower.
The wall tiles are white glazed terracotta, also from London Encaustic. The handmade tiles are perfectly imperfect and provide a less uniform, harsh look. Tiled in a vertical formation, the tiles create a feeling of space in the room and compliment the white sanitary ware to keep a bright, seemless finish.
We added the Flos wall light next to the mirror on a separate circuit so a softer, warm light can be achieved in the evening to promote relaxation and calm. The walls and ceiling are painted in Little Greene’s China Clay - a soft pink-white which warms up the space and acts as a subtle accent to the teal tiles.
If you are planning a bathroom renovation, do get in touch - i’d love to help you turn your ideas into reality!
