“We felt a bit of romance was needed, that’s why we used a traditional clawfoot bath,” explains Leon. A floor-mounted Sussex ‘Pol’ bath mixer, from Reece, allows the plumbing to be run back under the floor into the vanity area.
The custom-made shower cubicle is made from toughened glass on a Corian base. “It’s raised so it contains the plumbing and we could keep the polished floorboards throughout,” says Leon. The shower – actually an external pool shower – is self-contained, too, so there’s no need for taps or pipes to be run through the glass.
Easy-care Corian in Antarctica was used to create the floating vanity top, which stretches the width of the ensuite, while a wall-hung toilet is tucked away discreetly at the far end. The White Stone ‘Hox’ semi-recessed basin is paired with a Sussex ‘Pol’ straight basin mixer.
