The homeowners of this three-bedroom Victorian terraced house in Fordingbridge, Hampshire, wanted to keep the Victorian-style fixtures and fittings of their bathroom, but add a dramatic flair. They decided to build a new scheme around the fixtures to give the room a much-needed update. ‘The room was a great size but lacked character and the flooring was covered in water stains.’

With the help of a local builder, the family turned their outdated bathroom into a haven of modern relaxation. ‘We found a local builder to do the bulk of the work, but tackled the panelling ourselves – sanding, priming and painting it. We chose the colour to match the floor tiles, which were the starting point for the whole scheme. We looked at hundreds before going back to the first ones we found!

‘When the old shower was removed, we found a leak. Waiting for that to dry out, plus being sent the wrong basin taps and shower parts, meant the project took 10 days in the end.’

‘Luckily, the layout was good and we were able to keep the existing roll-top bath,’ says the homeowner. ‘The room was unloved, though, and adding drama was important to us, so we decided that statement floor tiles would do that.’ Window shutters also give privacy but still let in plenty of light.
