Modernising a family bathroom and shower room during a national lockdown.​
A bathroom renovation can be an upheaval at the best of times, however, renovating two bathrooms and a cloakroom, during a national lockdown presents a whole new range of obstacles. Our South London Refresh Renovation Specialist, Asif Hameed has taken this project through from conception to completion, working through the tough conditions placed on renovations during lockdown to ensure this project was successful and stylish! Identifying and avoiding any potential issues with the supply chains caused by the pandemic, Asif managed to achieve a 3 room renovation, including two bathrooms, and a cloakroom in under a month.
With the help of his exceptional team of project managers, bathroom designers and trusted tradespeople, Asif has worked with the client to design the bathroom of their dreams, incorporating statement tiling and high shine chrome fixtures and fittings. High gloss finishes for both tiles and units, sets these bathrooms apart from the crowd, with a contrast in tonality between white and chrome of the fixtures, and the earth tones of the tiles.
This look for the main bathroom is finished off with a statement backlit mirror, wired in and centrally placed for convenience and aesthetics.
In the shower room, the real statement piece is the wet room style walk in shower, with subtle drainage in the shape of a chrome bar, and a small but powerful, hidden extractor fan. This shower room exudes a classic style with a modern minimalistic edge.
It’s always worth bearing in mind when renovating more than one room in a home, if the materials used can be utilised across the overall renovation. It can reduce wastage and keep costs down when renovating two bathrooms, for the bathrooms to use the same style of tiles and fixtures and fittings. This renovation of two bathrooms and a cloakroom did just that, which allowed for costs to be kept to a minimum whilst still achieving a high-end aesthetic and an exceptional finish.
Scheduling was extra important for this project, with the homeowners working from home and taking part in virtual work conferences and online meetings. Asifs team worked with the homeowners to schedule all the noisy works, such as demolition and tile cutting works for the hours where this would not disturb the clients work schedules. A tight schedule also came into play with the way that the team sequenced the refurbishments, ensuring that the clients always had access to one set of working facilities. When properly planning a program of building works, it is so important to ensure that any potential issues for the homeowners are identified in advance, so they can be mitigated and controlled, ensuring that the clients have a relaxed and enjoyable renovation experience. Asif and his team of trusted tradespeople understand this, and ensured that these clients could continue their work schedule uninterrupted.
Its safe to say that it’s impressive to achieve two bathrooms and a cloakroom all fully renovated for under £20,000+VAT in South London, and it’s a testament to Asif and his Team, what is achievable for that sort of budget, and under the restrictions of a national lockdown.
