Keen to make a bold design statement in the bathroom, the owners decided on glossy black wall and floor tiles, with white wall tiles for contrast. Worried that a monochrome scheme would look too masculine, they came up with the idea of creating a dramatic and colourful feature wall.

The red wall paint was from Dulux.

One end of the room was tanked, and a simple, frameless shower screen was fitted to achieve a wet room look. The look is now similar to that found in a luxurious hotel spa.
