My clients in Dublin had just moved into this 1930’s house and were in need of a very urgent bathroom update!

As you can see from the ‘before’ picture, the bathroom had a separate wc and it didn’t have a bath – just a shower cubicle which is behind the door on the very left of this picture. So we definitely needed to make it into one space and add a bath.

Even in a smallish space like this, there were a few different options with layouts but it’s a good rule of thumb not to move too many pipes if you don’t have to so we kept the plumbing pretty much in the same place.

The wall between the two rooms was removed and we kept the door in the middle as it gave us a better layout – the other door was blocked up.

The new bathroom is designed around a palette of pale grey, white and silver. It takes advantage of pale grey panelling to give the room character, and the wooden New England style shutters disguise the windows while adding style and letting lots of light flood in.

It shows you that you don’t need a huge space to have bags of style.

Feedback from my clients:

“We had never used an interior designer before when we asked Louise for help. We were just moving into our new house and needed to knock an existing shower room and separate wc together to make a family bathroom. The way she was able to visualise the new space for us was really helpful and gave us the confidence to go ahead with project.” Fiona & Stephen
