Creative Director Finalist KBBR Awards 2013 - Bathrooms up to £10K

Catriona Lock is a finalist in the KBBR Awards 2013 in the Bathroom Design Category up to £10K.  Catriona, who is Soak in Style's Creative Director, is a finalist for the 3rd consecutive year in the KBBR Awards.

The second floor where this bathroom is located has 2 bedrooms with their own en suite.  The children are now young but it is anticipated that this is where they will move when they are older - perhaps teenagers -  as these rooms adjoin a central room that could be a joint study.
Our clients had a young son with a daughter on the way, and wanted to reflect a grown up masculine versus feminine feel.  This room is the more feminine of the two and our client had some fairly set ideas  about the style and feel of the room.

Must haves were:

  • Cross head taps, specifically a 3 tap hole wall mounted basin mixer to sit above a sink style basin on a wooden shelf.
  • A large shower and separate bath
  • A wall hung WC
  • Storage was not important as the room had access to the eaves storage area from within and the bedroom would also house a fair mount of storage.  However this did mean incorporating 2 doors.
  • Our client had sourced and chosen some small white brick mosaics which she wanted for the walls.  

These tiles enabled Catriona to get a clear picture of her vision for the space and brought it altogether harmoniously.

Catriona designed and specified the 6 bathrooms and 2 cloakrooms for the refurbishment of our clients 1930's home in Beaconsfield.  They are delighted with all the bathrooms.
