Marble Bathroom, Chislehurst
The client wanted us to create a stunning unique luxurious marble bathroom for their master ensuit. In a large bathroom they wanted a large double vanity, a bath, a separate shower with a seat, wc & bidet.
After looking at different sample combinations we had offered, the client wanted us to come up with a design using Calacatta Ora marble and Honey Onyx.
Knowing how beautifully calacatta ora can be book matched we decided to create book-match each floor area, boarded by honey onyx,
We ran a honey onyx border around the walls at the same height as the vanity, when the border reached the vanity we created a mitred honey onyx vanity top with inset fabricated calacatta basins.
Above the vanity was a large mirror with a back-lit honey onyx frame, in order to avoid any shadows in the back-lighting from the fixings, the onyx frame was bonded to a bespoke glass frame, the fixing to the boxing that held the lighting were then hidden behind the mirror.
For such a large room a normal bath looked tiny so we opted for the bette spa bath, this is under-mounted in a mitred marble surround to give the appearance of the bath being encased in a giant block of stone. This was to be given the effect of floating by recessed mirror kicker plinth.
The wc & bidet are separated from the shower enclosure by a floor to ceiling shower screen, both opening into the main area, the cistern boxing continues into the shower area creating a shelf before dropping down to create a shower seat.
Book-matched panels to the walls as well as the floor meant every slab selection and every line of cut was overseen and chosen by the designer.
The result is a truly unique one of a kind bathroom.
