1960’s refurbishment in Bath

Summary of works: layout alterations, bespoke wardrobes, bathroom fitting, oak stair parts, tiling. 

The first floor of this 1960s house in Bath was gutted and modernised with some nice details. 

A 1960s horizontal balustrade was removed and replaced with oak stair parts. The stairwell volume was borrowed to create wardrobe space in both adjoining bedrooms, using every cubic centimetre of available volume. The client’s own electrician added lighting.  

The wardrobe doors are slab MDF doors with a subtle groove pattern and recessed handles. 

The bathroom was stripped back to the joists and studs. Exterior wall was insulated internally. A false wall was created to house the cistern and a large integrated mirror cabinet with heated mirror doors. The bath panel is a bespoke item spray finished to match the bath tiles. Aluminium architraves avoid the common problem of woodwork suffering in a humid environment.
