Prepare to be wowed by this amazing bathroom makeover

Clever planning has given the owner of this house in South West London the en suite of her dreams

The makeover
A small, dark bathroom with no window or natural light, was what the owner of this house in South West London was faced with - far removed from the luxurious spa-style layout that she'd dreamed of.

As the old bathroom was far too small to achieve the spacious layout the owner wanted, the project manager suggested converting an unused bedroom into an en suite which would adjoin the master bedroom.

The room's new layout was driven by the owner's desire for two defined areas: a bath, basins and storage in one zone, and a walk-in shower and loo screened off behind tall glass panels in the other area.

The bathroom afterwards

The bathroom was installed with only minor building work and the owner
is enthusiastic about the results. ‘It's luxurious and
tranquil and I feel thoroughly pampered every time I step inside.'

Defining spaces
An enclosed wet room-style shower is separated by opaque panels that contain the water without restricting the natural daylight.

Simply floored
Continuing the parquet floor from the master bedroom into the en suite creates a sense of flow.

Statement accessories
Adding a freestanding bath, stylish tap, designer radiator and tactile marble gives the bathroom a boutique spa-like vibe.

Screen between
A bespoke opaque glass screen provides privacy and subtly separates the wet and dry bathroom zones.

Off the wall
A wall-hung vanity unit gives the bathroom a streamlined and clutter-free look, while a long run of mirrors adds to the sense of space.

Luxurious finish
The marble in the recessed ledge was part of a slab the owner bought to use throughout the house.
