Downstairs Loo Makeover
We were delighted to work with our repeat client, Charlotte, who came to us with the project of redesigning her cloakroom bathroom.
Charlotte didn’t want tiles or grout and was looking for something modern with nice clean lines. Also it was important that the new downstairs loo would stand the test of time and would not go out of style. Being easy to clean would also be a bonus!
We suggested our Aqua Slat panels and SPC glossy marble effect panels which fitted the brief. These panels also have the benefit of being waterproof, and budget friendly and they are a quick install. As well as the wall panels we also supplied Charlotte with bathroom furniture. This included a toilet, wall-mounted basin, and accessories as from our ex-display bathroom range to complete the downstairs loo makeover.
Wayne took part in the installation of the cloakroom which for him began as a plastered shell. First, he started by installing the SPC panels on the wall in which the concealed cistern would be. Next he created a slat wall on the opposite wall in which the wall-mounted basin would go in front. The slats offer excellent compressive strength making them ideal for the wall-mounted basin (providing the basin is fixed into the wall not just the slats). Lastly with the offcuts from the slats, he created a small slatted wall design feature above the marble panels which finished the look off perfectly. Charlotte will complement the work by Wayne by painting the walls and completing the finishing touches. A bare plastered space transformed into a truly beautiful bathroom space within a day and a half.
Looking to Install Aqua Slats and SPC Panels Yourself?
If you’re interested in installing Aqua Slats and SPC panels on your own as a DIY project, the installation process is relatively straightforward. No tiling is necessary. In fact, if you already have existing tiles on your walls, these panels can be installed directly over them. Whilst specialist equipment helps, all you require to install these are some basic tools. A level, tape measure, high grab adhesive, and cutting equipment – a very good hack saw for the slats and a Stanley knife for the SPCs would do the trick.
