Bedroom to Bathroom Conversion in Swanage

This quaint old cottage was the perfect setting for a bedroom to bathroom conversion. We embraced the traditional Portland stone architecture to create a modern bathroom space that does justice to the building’s heritage.

The homeowners came to us in search of a totally bespoke bathroom design. The brief was to preserve the rustic character of the cottage whilst integrating the comfort and luxury of contemporary bathroom products. We worked hand-in-hand with the customer to bring this vision to life, first with our 3D design service, and then a full installation by our expert fitters.

The client took advantage of our huge range of luxury bathroom products. They picked out a jacuzzi-style bath tub by Pheonix UK, with a heater and lights for the full luxury bathing experience. They also selected a Roper Rhodes drawer basin unit in Basalt Wood, as well as luxury vinyl flooring from our Karndean Knight range.

As with many period buildings, this project posed a few challenges. Firstly, the sloping ceilings and exposed beams meant we could not simply install an “off the peg” shower enclosure. Instead, our in-house team designed a bespoke made to measure shower area based on the surveyor’s measurements. This involved a semi-frameless design, with special glass panels to match the angle of the ceiling.

The second challenge was the sheer thickness of the old Purbeck stone walls. We had to call in a specialist builder to install new waste outlets and drains. The final issue was to install a new boiler with increased capacity to supply the new bathroom.
