PLAN OF ACTION
In the bathroom at the back of the house, the layout was problematic. ‘ The biggest issue was that you were staring at a brick wall from the doorway,’ recalls Katie Alice. ‘ There was no window in the back wall overlooking the garden and just a tiny one at the side of the room, where there was a small shower. The bath was on the back wall so when we opened the shower door, it banged into the tub. The loo was straight in front of you as well, so that’s all you saw from the hallway. The tiles were all dated, plus there was an enormous mirror, which just made everything feel more weird.’
The use of a frameless walk-in shower adds a sense of grandeur and also enhances the airy feeling of space in the bathroom.
