Colour outside the lines

David Aspinall, Director and Senior Bathroom Designer at Sapphire Spaces has transformed a once neutral bathroom into a vivid and atmospheric space – enlivened by bold choices of light, colour and finish.

Winner of the best Bathroom Design in the 2018 Designer Kitchen and Bathroom Awards, the project is a stunning example of what can be achieved when we challenge the bathroom space. Not only is the space perfectly spatially planned for a neater bathroom size, it uses the space as a canvas to set a multitude of moods using light to striking effect.

Stunning photographs taken by interiors specialist Nicholas Yarsley capture the lighting transformation.

A Matki EauZone Plus Wet Room Panel divides the room beautifully while providing a practical Wet Room solution. Made from 12mm low-iron glass, the panel has a crystal-clear quality magnifying light and space. As a self-supporting panel without the need for a brace bar, an uncluttered appearance is beautifully maintained.

Building the scheme, David used an array of fixtures manufactured by Laufen – the gold illuminated Kartell mirror holding a beautiful cluster of lights forms the counterpoint of the design scheme.

Mrs Saunders, the homeowner and very happy customer commented:

David was keen to get to know me and my daughter, find out our likes and dislikes, explore ideas, make suggestions until eventually, together we agreed on the plans. At all stages of the project, I was kept fully informed, everyone who played their part in the new installation was totally professional and very friendly, the project was completed on time and as planned and looks absolutely amazing. Not only has the bathroom been totally transformed to a standard and style that far exceeded my expectations and is totally stunning but the warm and friendly approach of David and the rest of the team who worked on the project was exemplary. I would not hesitate to recommend Sapphire Spaces.”
