The spec for this job was “Make it my sanctuary”. This bachelor wanted a masculine, modern, luxurious and bigger new bathroom.
The existing suite had been poorly fitted resulting in extensive water damage to walls and floor. To accommodate the layout we had to extend the wall into the adjacent bedroom, replace all the pipework, complete new flooring, insulate, increase the depth of the entrance wall slightly, and also bring out the vanity unit wall.
The bathing area is made up of an 1800mm x 1000mm Hydrotherapy model including Airspa and Whirlpool options, underwater colour-changing LED moodlight, feature curved step with moodlights, twin niches with moodlights and mirror backs, digital bath filler with additional remote control unit, additional base-mounted filler, twin USB wall-mounted extension outlets, electric matt black radiator mounted at end of bath, 24” waterproof, flush-mounted mirror-screened smart T.V. linked to Freeview, Firestick, and CCTV system, linked ceiling-mounted 100w speakers with Bluetooth compatibility and bespoke flush-mounted, pull-up remote control holder and extractor fan.
The w/c area is made up of a wall-mounted w/c with twin flush and soft-close seat, chrome flush plate, moodlights under bowl, recessed chrome toilet roll holder, feature niche with white downlights, and mirror-backed with additional moodlight back glow surround, and 2 custom 6mm glass shelves.
The Vanity area is made up of 1200mm Anthracite-finish wall-hung unit, moodlights underneath, recessed 1200mm mirror cabinet with sensor switch, LED’s, demist glass and power outlet, twin tall anthracite radiator with thermostatic control.
The room is wrapped in 11mm Italian porcelain woodgrain-effect tiles with metal trim throughout, twin-click commercial grade vinyl flooring planks in black woodgrain.
The entrance is a custom 10mm frosted glass sliding panel door with soft-open/close feature.
The bedroom/new office was plastered with new ceiling, lights, sockets and another 10mm frosted glass sliding panel door with soft-open/close feature.
Full design, management and fit project. Timescale 18 Days.
"Concept; I have spent much of my adult life pandering to the wishes of my ex-wife and towing the party line when it came to colours and decoration. Having moved into my dream home and still being young enough to know what I want I researched a number of bathroom companies to try and find someone who would be able deliver the “Rolls Royce” of all bathrooms. Having some design experience from many years ago I had sketched out a crude design and had already shown this to a couple of bathroom installers only to be told that my suggestions were impractical or would cost the same amount as another house.
I then found Flush Fitting Ltd. and arranged an appointment with Justin. He arrived promptly as agreed and was polite and professional from the get go. With trepidation I showed him my layman’s design with Justin immediately praising the ingenuity and concept. We discussed options, prices and timescales and I knew immediately that Flush Fitting were the company for me. I paid my deposit instantly, not something I ever do and awaited further designs and a confirmed date for commencement.
Installation; The guys arrived on day one as agreed. As my whole house currently a work in progress we had pre-agreed the rooms the guys would use for tools and equipment (you have never seen so many tools) so there was no issue with regards to mess. Warning – having your bathroom done involves mess – please done expect a magic installation without mess. On the plus side the team are so clean and tidy. They will leave your house the way they found it at the end of every day. Installation progressed as planned and each day took shape with obvious progress. This was a big job, walls and floors removed and replaced, new pocket doors constructed from scratch and installed. Having to work throughout the installation I gave Justin a key and trusted him implicitly with the security of my home. Most days we would discuss any options, decisions or changes I wanted to make to ensure I was going to get the dream.
Completion; Just under 4 weeks and I have the dream bathroom. I have been very ill in the last few years and having returned to work I needed a haven to de-stress. Justin was well aware of this. His company have created me a hi-tech, gadget-laden environment that provides me with subdued lighting and the feeling of a very expensive spa and of course my dream gadget is my waterproof DTV with surround sound. It’s rare in life these days to get what you ask for at the price you agreed, I can say in this instance Flush Fitting exceeded my very high expectations. The team are great guys - Yildiray, Josh and Justin and I have kept in touch with them all partly because I have plans for the en-suite, cloakroom and kitchen. I cannot recommend this company highly enough." M. Stott - Solihull
