The layout of this cold, unappealing bathroom has been kept the same, but everything else has been changed into a stunning spa-style bathroom.

3/9 Black gloss and wood efffect

For a truly luxe feel, the owners built a vanity unit out of mdf to sit around a bespoke Corian (opens in new tab) basin and sprayed it with a high-gloss paint. This creates a dramatic contrast with the mahogany-coloured Roble Cognac (opens in new tab) wall tiles by Porcelanosa.

4/9 Whirlpool bath

The Squaro whirlpool bath by Villeroy & Boch (opens in new tab) has its own headrest. Pipework was concealed by a stud wall, so the owner had niches built into it - each with their own light - for displaying Eastern-style ornaments in them.

5/9 Bath mixer & towel rail

A wall-mounted Levo bath spout (opens in new tab)Levo manual concealed valve small cover plate (opens in new tab) and shower mixer all by Pura Bathrooms (opens in new tab) leave enough space for a luxury whirlpool bath. A heated towel rail ensures wall towels are close at home. Bianco wall tiles from Tile Shapes (opens in new tab) complement the mahogany-coloured Roble Cognac (opens in new tab) wall tiles by Porcelanosa.

6/9 Curved shower enclosure

By changing the door to the bathroom to a sliding one, a generously-sized Merlyn 10 Series (opens in new tab) shower enclosure has been squeezed into the room. The Bauhaus Steam II WC came from builders merchants Grant & Stone (opens in new tab).  Bianco wall tiles from Tile Shapes (opens in new tab) line the enclosure to protect the walls.

7/9 Sliding door

To create more room inside the bathroom, the original door that opened inwards taking up valuable floor space has been replaced with a glass sliding door from Porcelanosa (opens in new tab).

8/9 Vanity unit

The extra-shiny black gloss of the vanity unit was created by getting a car body workshop to spray mdf. The Corian (opens in new tab) basin was made by Cutting Edge (opens in new tab) and a wall-mounted Puro Levo (opens in new tab) two-hole basin mixer enhances its sleek lines.

9/9 Basin mixer

A wall-mounted Puro Levo (opens in new tab) two-hole basin mixer from saves space around the bespoke basin from Cutting Edge (opens in new tab).
