HIB bathroom mirror cabinets

If there was just one thing that you could add to a bathroom which may have just had the essential sanitary ware replaced, we consider that the bathroom cabinet with a mirror would be essential.

The mirrored bathroom cabinet enables you to store all the essential items that are needed every day, such as shaving items, make up, and toiletries. A bathroom should be free from general clutter and the bathroom cabinet is the ideal place to ensure it is tidy. But, it can do more, such as having a mirror on the front for personal grooming. It also can have the function of being illuminated which means that you can see to shave or adjust make up and it also has the dual function of providing subtle lighting for the bathroom.

Grand Designs – Woodbridge Revisit

We went back to the Woodbridge build last night, the story began six years ago when Lucie Fairweather and Nat McBride set out to build an affordable eco home for their family. However before the project got off the ground the couple discovered that Nat had cancer and within a few months had passed away.

However not discouraged by the loss of her husband, Lucie decided to carry on with the project with the support of family and friends and build the dream home the couple had envisioned. There were huge demands on widow Lucie who was now a single working mum who not only had to support her family but also work on the new home.

They set out to disprove misconceptions of eco houses at the time, with a modern and contemporary build which also has to fit into the tight planning restrictions of the area. The home had to be multipurpose for the family to live and work in, making the most out of the small site. The home was designed to be quite open planned and light as well as being functional for their two children.

For many people delays and problems come from building issues, not the death of your spouse, however with Lucie choosing to carry on shows, the determination which she had throughout the build process. There were some changes from the original design, to fit the new reduced budget, however Lucie did still manage to salvage a lot of the eco designs and keep costs down.

When revisiting this modern and eco build, we find that Lucie still loves the overall look of the home. The home shows how functional it is with the rooms changing use over the years to fit the families changing needs. However the heart of the home is still used the same.

The modern and light bathroom, featured a simple and seamless design with white tilling, interlaced with coloured lines from the walls and down the side of the bath and across the floor. Villeroy and Bock stock a fantastic range of brightly coloured tile which you can use to re-create a similar look, with colours of your choice.

Simple toilet, bath and sink in white. If you like the tilled bath idea, fit a Roca Contesa ECO Steel bath 1700 x 700mm bath with cladding around which you can tile. We also stock, beautiful and simple Grohe taps which offer the same great style found in this bathroom. For more ideas, seen in the show and others, please check out our Grand Designs page.

Grand Designs Watch – 1950’s House South London

In a leafy suburb of London, young couple Ben and Rachel Hammond and their two children come across an ugly, inefficient and uninspiring red brick property whilst looking for the perfect plot of land. However instead of tearing it down, they decide to completely re-design it.

Retrofitting and re building the home instead of starting a fresh, which is a much harder job, than building a new home on the land. The couple look to change the whole concept of the home whilst keeping part of its structure, well three and a half walls. They are adding a double extension which wraps around the body of the home.

The inside of the home will be open plan with crisp and modern fixtures and fittings. Including modern technologies, creating an eco-friendly property. They are hoping to move into their new home in 8 months whilst they are renting. However projects never run smoothly or finish on time, will this weeks be any different.

The simplicity of the design follows into many of the rooms including the bathroom. With wonderful views out across the park behind the house, the bathroom, is a sleek and modern room. Featuring a soft moulded Royce Morgan Onyx Freestanding Bath and simple taps. The bathroom has a very fresh and light feel. These wonderful free standing baths are available on our website and are perfect if you’re looking at adding a touch of luxury to your bathroom.

Grand Designs Watch – Japanese Home

Tamayo Hussey, moved to the UK with her husband Nigel, however since she moved here she has missed Japan very much. The changes and culture shock inspired the couple to build a Japanese inspired home to ward off her home sickness. In the Wye Valley they bought a house which came on a nice plot of land. The house wasn’t very good, so they say goodbye to that to build their dream house by altering it completely.

Houses in Japan are built from light materials, and only last around 20 years, however this is due to the risk of earthquakes, so it is safer and easier. Hoping to improve the current house, by making blend into the surroundings better than brick, with Japanese larch wood. Inside, room plans will be open plan and free flowing featuring a number of Japanese influences with tatami room and sliding paper walls and roof bath.

Like many home builders, the couple are doing as much of the project themselves to save money as well as not having an architect on site or anyone to project manage the build. They estimate the project will take 9 months, but that never works. So can the couple beat all the hurdles they come across?

Like much of the house, the bathroom features sleek and simple fixtures and fittings which flowed throughout the whole space. It included a simple counter top wash bowl sat atop a wooden unit with a simple mixer tap. For the simplicity, the Bauhaus Countertop Washbowl fits the bill along with the wonderfully designed Adamez Eclipse i Double Ended inset Bath. All these wonderful pieces can be found on our Grand Designs Page, if you are looking for inspiration.
