May’s Bathroom Project of the Month
For May’s project of the month, our Managing Director; Kieran Harris chose a bathroom project with the real wow factor – hint: he’s always wanted a freestanding bath in the bedroom.
Up and coming Interior designer Sharon Shaw came to Harris Interiors looking for something completely unique for her home in Rawdon, Leeds. Sharon wanted us to transform her oddly shaped master bedroom and ensuite into rectangular spaces and incorporate a feature bath into the newly opened up bedroom space… a feature here at Harris we’re completely in awe of!
The main challenge for this project came when making both the ensuite and master bedroom rectangular. We wanted to ensure the ensuite space (despite losing a few feet) remained a comfortable and functional space to be in, and at the same time ensure the aesthetic was luxurious – no ugly exposed waste pipes or obvious boxing in here!
The decision to add a feature bath to the bedroom was set from the start. We were able to advise the best way to incorporate this within the bedroom space without it becoming impractical was to add a solid granite tiled plinth to house ugly pipework and break up the space. This also allowed us to add some feature lights. The client had a specific solid stone bath in mind, and we were able to advise on complementary floor mounted taps to finish the look!
The ensuite itself featured marble effect porcelain tiles which give the classic marble look without the maintenance, a full-width shower enclosure and recessed sink and WC – again to hide any pipe work.
In addition to the master bedroom en-suite, we also replaced the guest bathroom in a similar style complete with marble effect porcelain tiles. For ease of use for guests, we fitted twin sinks and as a design feature recessed the full-width mirror. This also allowed us to hide any pipe work from the sinks or WC.
We’re extremely pleased with the finished product! Sharon was a dream to work with, her personal interiors experience meant we were quickly able to bounce ideas off one another and I’m sure you’ll agree, the outcome is stunning.
