Grey Bathroom in Hove, East Sussex

Multiple grey tones combine for this bathroom project in Hove, with a traditional shaker-fitted furniture option.


The Brief

Like many other bathroom renovations we tackle, this client sought to replace a traditional shower over bath with a walk-in shower space.

In terms of style, the space required a modernisation with a neutral design that wouldn’t age quickly.

The space needed to remain relatively spacious, yet with enough storage for all bathroom essentials. Other amenities like underfloor heating and a full-height towel rail were also favoured within the design.

Design Elements

Placing the shower in the corner of the room really dictated the remainder of the layout, with the fitted furniture then placed wall-to-wall beneath the window in the room.

The chosen furniture is a fitted option from British supplier R2. It is from their shaker style Stow range and has been selected in a complimenting Midnight Grey colourway.

The furniture is composed of a concealed cistern unit, semi-recessed basin space and then a two-door cupboard for storage. Atop, a White Marble work surface nicely finishes off this area of the room.

An R2 Altitude mirrored cabinet is used near the door area to add a little extra storage and required mirrored space.

Special Inclusions

The showering area required an inventive solution, resulting in small a platform being incorporated into the design. Within this area, a towel rail features, alongside a Crosswater shower screen and brassware from Arco.

The shower area shows the great tile combination that has been chosen for this space. A Natural Grey finish teams well with the Fusion Black accent tile used for the shower platform area.

Project Feedback

My wife and I cannot speak highly enough of our recent kitchen and bathroom installations.

Alexanders were terrific all the way from initial estimate stage through to handover.

All of their fitters and staff were polite, professional, and very skilled tradespeople. We were very pleased that we asked them to carry out our work.

The End Result

The result is a simple bath-to-shower room conversion that creates the spacious feel and modern design this client required.
