The smallest room

Posted on July 19, 2009


I finished this bathroom on the ground floor of our house last year, but never got round to blogging it, so here it is. The works were extensive including excavating and pouring a new concrete slab for the floor, all new plumbing and electrics and fully replastering; all done by my own fair hand.

I designed and built the cabinets from American White Oak, the sanitary ware is all Armitage Shanks and the mosaic and floor tiles are from Country Tiles in Heage.

When the house was built in 1904, the room was originally a walk in pantry with stone thrawls and a meat safe. We were told that it was converted into a cloakroom around 30 years ago: we chose to remove the shower cubicle, vanity unit and orange walls with handpainted flowers.


Because this was a full replacement of everything in the room it felt right to go with a deliberately contemporary style, rather than matching the more traditional themes in other parts of the house.

Only one more bathroom to go, just as soon as I can psyche myself up for it!
