Modern, stylish update to a 1960s bungalow in Sudbury


Our client wanted a sleek and clean modern design for their bathroom – part of a renovation project for the bungalow they had recently inherited. The old bathroom hadn’t been touched since the build of the property in the 1960s, so was in need of a considerable update.

The room originally incorporated a toilet, sink and bath, but not a shower. Our client challenged us to try and fit both a bath and separate shower enclosure into the new design, despite the limited space.


We created two lovely designs for our client, one that included a bath and one that didn’t. We suggested that they considered the option without the bath as it had a more generous feeling of space and modernity. The client was pleased to reconsider and agreed that no bath was a better solution. Our design included a larger Villeroy & Boch basin and unit with more storage. We also incorporated a beautiful Keuco recessed mirror cabinet, which our clients had requested. The overall effect of this design change was a more luxurious space with far less crowding.

The shower enclosure was built using Corian panelling rather than tiles which requires no grout and is easy to clean and maintains a good finish and appearance over time. We built a niche within the Corian panel to allow space for storing toiletries.

The overall appearance of modern, clean lines was finished off with large porcelain floor tiles with a skirting using the same tiles as on the floor. The wall tiles are a lighter shade of grey, which together with clever positioning of spotlights, adds to the feeling of space throughout.

“The owners had great vision for transforming their bathroom to a minimal, stylish and clean room within their bungalow renovation. I’m glad that they are so pleased with the bathroom and don’t regret taking the bath out of the design.”
