This room is called the Japanese bathroom because all the builders named it that, since our client found a square japanese soaking bath to use. Its actually a compact en-suite bathroom, created by nicking a bit of under-stairs space and built in wardrobe. Notice the Square-ish bath tub. This lends it its title really.
This room is part of the Georgian house conversion, where we also designed the kitchen and two further ensuite bathrooms. Carried out in 2010.
The room has no windows, and lighting is key here, with separate controls creating different atmospheres, gentle and moody for an evening, clean and bright for a wake up. Clean lines, subtle lighting, simple fittings, and a soft blue rubber floor from dalsouple lend this room a spa like quality.
Feature lighting at the rear and to the right gives a light warm ambient effect that can be controlled whilst having a bath.
All the elements and fittings used needed to be compact, but still stylish. We used a mixture of Bisque, Bristan, Ideal Standard and Hudson Reed fittings.
Vertical tiling came from an inspiration picture by our client of the London Underground.
