Traditional 1890’s Oak Beam Bathroom In Lacey Green, Buckinghamshire
Work to be carried out: This en suite bathroom was In a large 1890’s house in Lacey green, Buckinghamshire. It was important to preserve the traditional Oak Beams while giving this limited space a fresh look.
Problems/Solutions: This was a small ensuite bathroom and it took a great deal of work to look the way it did. None of the walls were level or flat and they had visible, solid oak beams running through the walls that we had to be very careful not to damage or splash with plaster or paint.
I re-built a half height, false wall to hide the protruding pipe work for the basin and installed a classy wall hung toilet. We then installed a very large walk in shower. The client specifically asked that there was no step in to the shower, so we built the floor up to the top of the shower tray level maintaining an area for the water to fall without ever flooding the bathroom. To compliment this stylish bathroom we finished the floor in solid oak – it was only right with the date of the building and the perfectly preserved beams.
