Mr & Mrs Hayhurst

Have you ever wanted a larger bath and shower in your bathroom? Chances are you have: but the restrictions of space always get in the way. This was a problem for Mr and Mrs Hayhurst in Livingston: as they looked for a double ended bath, a large shower area and alcoves with lights.

The Challenge

Find a way to fit the largest shower and bath possible without making the room feel small. Is it possible to have the best of both worlds? If you employ the bathroom designers from Ekco then it is: as they set about addressing that challenge while still bringing style and flair to the room.

The Outcome

Part one of the process of transforming this Livingston bathroom was to take down the partition wall from the shower area in an effort to open up the space. This allowed the designers to alter the layout of the bathroom and build a bulkhead at either side of the bath so that alcoves could be incorporated into the wall, along with a frame for a wall-hung WC.

An Ambiance Bain Komplements Basin Unit with Laufen Basin gives the room a professional look and the curved off-set shower gave the best possible showering space without imposing too much on the space in the room. This was complemented brilliantly by a Grohe linear basin mixer.

Perhaps the main features of the room are the use of symmetry with niche cut-outs and bulkhead shelves; while LED lighting has been linked to the dimmer switch to alter the ambiance of the room. The room was kept light by the use of beige wall tiles that offered a neat contrast to the dark brown floor and the feature strip in the shower. As the basin unit is in charcoal oak and the radiator in brown quartz, there is real variety in the colours used to keep the area interesting.

“Ecko’s designers were so efficient, organised and inspiring – the transformation is simply astonishing.”
