This small bathroom was an awkward space until the adjacent room and hallway were reconfigured to optimise the design possibilities.
The claw foot tub, a client favourite, was refinished and fit with a new faucet. All of the rest of the fixtures were selected to complement this character.
Existing windows were re-glazed with glass blocks for privacy, and awning windows above for ventilation.
The bow fronted sink cabinet has shallow base units on either side of it; this allowed for a much larger shower door. The generous use of the same traditional limestone for the floor and walls keeps the room simple yet elegant in its traditional theme.
“I would highly recommend Design First Interiors to anyone considering a kitchen or bathroom remodelling. We have worked with Friedemann and his team on two occasions, first for a kitchen renovation in 2008, followed by the redesign of our master bath in 2012. In both cases the results were absolutely stunning. We particularly appreciated Friedemann’s creativity in proposing design options that complemented the existing layout of our century home and made maximum use of the relatively small space available. None of the other designers we consulted came close to Friedemann in terms of the quality of his work. In addition, he ensured that the project ran smoothly and on time from start to finish, and the contractors he used were consistently professional and expert. Friedemann's recommendations for surfaces, cabinetry, appliances, etc. were all excellent, and at the end of both projects I felt strongly that we had received very good value for money.”
