    Lovely showroom in Uphall and plenty of product on display. Ended up getting bifolding doors last year so my review is long overdue. Recently had a remedial issue and the customer care I received was great. I must thank Callum for arranging for replacement parts and for a fitter to attend. Thank you ekco.

    Had a great experience with ekco from start to finish. The staff were very helpful and communicated well throughout our project. The tradesmen were efficient and showed up on time. I was very impressed by their standard of workmanship and how they would tidy up after themselves. Everything was completed in a timely manner and I’m delighted with my new bathroom.

      MR & MRS WISE

      THE KBSA DESIGNER AWARDS 2019

      Entry: Bathroom Designer of the Year
      Client: Mr & Mrs Wise
      Designer: Hollie Kerr
      Company: EKCO

      Client Brief

      New Clients, Mr & Mrs Wise, came into the showroom with plans for their new extension they were building and were eager to have designs drawn up for the master en-suite bathroom. With a budget of 25k and a blank slate, they were unsure what they were looking for but knew it was to be light and bright and follow the theme of the extension which had high pitched ceilings and Velux windows giving a modern open feeling. Their main requirement was a double vanity unit with plenty of storage for them both. The shower was to be a good width with minimal glass to clean, they preferred not to have a wet floor and liked the look of a shower tray better. The room was to accommodate a freestanding bath which would be used regularly by Mrs Wise. Mr Wise was also keen to have the wc out of the way and not on show if possible.

      Meeting the Criteria

      I designed the room with two partition walls creating a “T” shape, this allowed me to divide the space more effectively with the shower on the left-hand side and wc on the right. The main front wall was taken to 2.4m sitting short of the pitched ceiling giving it a floating impression. This also created a perfect space for the Keuco Edition 400 double vanity unit with sleek in set basins which were paired with Crosswater Dune wall mounted basin mixers. This wall also allowed me to add extra storage for my clients with a HIB recessed, illuminated mirror cabinet. A Matki Bespoke shower tray was made for the space 1000mm wide to keep the shower extra roomy, 2x eye level alcoves were created in the shower area for storage. The clients had asked for a double function shower and I included a large wall mounted fixed head with a separate rail kit shower with controls accessible from outside of the shower space. The minimal wall hung Laufen wc was fitted behind the wall to right hand side which fulfilled the client brief to have this hidden away. To maintain the modern elegant feeling a Clearwater stone bath set on an angle as you entered the bathroom, a small shelved area was added to give much needed laydown space for Mrs Wise when in the bath. Soft warm grey polished marble effect tiles from Atlas Concord were used throughout giving a sophisticated look to the room, this was complimented with a Porcelanosa Laja textured feature tile on the main wall. LED Lighting was used under the basin unit and in the alcoves as the clients were keen to have separate lights for during the night or when using the bath.

      Result

      Mr & Mrs Wise are delighted with the new en-suite bathroom, they loved the tile colours so much they continued the theme through their dressing area and bedroom. The layout was the hardest part for them to imagine and they were so happy to have something unique and designed with their specific needs in mind. Their project came in under Budget at 24960.00 inc vat.
