Contemporary bathroom refurbishment

We created a beautiful new bathroom for Morag and her three kids in Glasgow's West End. Just the thing to relax in after a hard day at work.

The Challenge

Here's what Morag had to say -

"I didn’t want to employ a bathroom company to do the work but I knew I needed some help. nest had project managed a friend’s house extension which was a fairly big job and I was really impressed by what they had done there so my friend suggested I contacted them.

I knew I wanted it to be very plain and I wanted a big mirror but other than that my brief to nest was to make it a nice space to spend time in.  After nest’s visit to The London Design Show they brought me back lots of catalogues which gave me plenty of ideas."

The Solution

"Trust your designer.  When Dene first mentioned the reclaimed wood for around the sink I couldn’t imagine what he meant but I’m glad I trusted him and went along with his idea.  It’s important to have your own ideas and discuss them but if you employ a designer you should trust their instincts too. I would never have thought of that but it was a brilliant idea.  It breaks up the plainness of the room and creates texture.  I think it changes the whole look of the room."

The Results

We worked closely with Morag to develop a design and look she wanted. It’s in keeping with the modern/classic feel of the rest of the house. We chose white walls, slate tiles with a couple of key or unusual pieces. We used some lovely wall hooks from james and some reclaimed timber from a secret supplier. We had a Douglas Gordon artwork framed – it now looks amazing – made sure the bath was luxurious and deep, just the thing to relax in after a hard day at work (or school).

I am absolutely delighted with my gorgeous new bathroom. Working with nest was a joy from start to finish – I had a vague idea of what I wanted but with their design input and fantastic ideas I now have a bathroom that has exceeded all of my expectations. It’s so good, I’ve now asked them to transform my utility room.“
