Bathroom refurbishment at Bucknell in Oxfordshire
A luxurious spa bathroom in a stone built cottage set in the beautiful village of Bucknell
CBKI were commissioned to completely refurbish a very tired and dated bathroom with a less than desirable layout. The client selected 900 x 600mm grey satin wall tiles. The existing undulating wall surface was unsuitable to accept such a large wall tile, it would have meant relining the walls which would have reduced the space necessary to accommodate the bath. The plasterwork was stripped back to the stonework and bonded and skimmed to provide perfectly flat walls ready to accept the full height tiling.
The tiles are arranged in a grid pattern and finished with a matching grey grout and translucent silicone bead sealant at the wall and sanitary ware abutments.
The original timber sill boards, reveals, skirting boards and plank door were retained and freshly painted as requested by the client. The ceiling was treated to two coats of Crown Milk White washable trade emulsion.
The star of the show is the Whirlpool Edge Relax Profi 24 massage jet spa bath, it will maintain the water temperature with its inbuilt circulation heater, it has ozone disinfection and underwater LED lighting to suit any mood. The bath comes fully assembled in 8 different sizes and will even play your favourite radio channels.
The bidet and WC with soft close seat are from the RAK ceramics product range. The Hudson Reed wash basin is a short projection offering, which helped to maximise the available walk space.
Two nui slate grey towel rails were fitted to the central heating system to ensure the space is always cosy and warm.
Finally a Milan dark chrome thermostatic shower tower and Aquadart Venturi 6 Swiftseal concertina shower screen completes the ‘over bath’ shower bay. The clients selected vinyl floor covering supplied by Carpet Trader in Bicester completed the refurbishment project.
CBKI’s Installation Manager advised throughout the design, planning and installation to ensure a smooth seamless transition from tired bathroom to a luxurious space for relaxation.
