Contemporary ‘art deco’ bathroom

Mr & Mrs P live in a 1930s house with a slight ‘Art Deco’ feel to it. They wanted their separate bathroom and toilet to be incorporated into one space and said the design they were looking for was contemporary, with “if possible just a hint of Art Deco – but not pretentiously so”.

We used the need to alter the door arrangement to create an angled vestibule on the landing with the new bathroom door angled to set the scene for the floor tiling and the bath area.

We converted the area that was once the separate WC into a huge shower area with bespoke suspended glass walls that eliminated both silicone sealant and tile grout. On the long side of the shower, we included a boxed shelf that effectively added useful ‘elbow room’ by increasing the showering width to over 900mm.

The basin area offers a good volume of storage, and we integrated it into the overall design by extending to the left to form a narrow display shelf at the end of the shower and then continuing to the right to create the cistern frame housing for the WC pan.

Opposite the basin, we positioned the free-standing Art Deco style bath across the corner, with a 2-tier deck behind.
