Bermondsey Bathroom Installation & Fitting
Bermondsey is one of Burgess Bathrooms large growth areas following its huge surge in popularity. Bermondsey Street and the surrounding roads have seen a large amount of redevelopment in recent years. This has led to us doing a lot of multi-bathroom refurbishments for developers and landlords in the area. In addition, Bermondsey Spa and nearer Bermondsey tube continues to be popular with families and first time buyers wanting new, purposeful bathrooms.
Top 3 Popular Bermondsey Bathroom Styles
- Warehouse Conversions – Given its industrial links, Bermondsey has seen a lot of warehouse conversions in recent years. Many of our clients ask us to design and install industrial style bathrooms in keeping with their wider properties. Copper taps/fittings and marble style counters are currently very popular. Our bathroom fitters are often asked to marry these industrial features with state of the art shower systems to complete the look.
- Loft/Low Ceiling Bathrooms – Given the high price per square foot in Bermondsey, many of our clients have looked to expand their properties into the loft or basement. As such, they are often compromised on head room. Our bathroom designers and fitters are regularly coming up with innovative design ideas and clever installations to maximise the feeling of space while ensuring functionality of these small/unusual bathroom spaces.
- Low cost, high impact replacement bathrooms – As well as period properties, Bermondsey has a lot of new build apartments that have sprung up over the last twenty years. We regularly get clients looking for simple bathroom refurbishments in these modern blocks. Often owned by landlords as well as owner occupiers, we are usually asked to install wow factor bathrooms but keeping the cost to the minimum. Oversized, matching wall and floor tiles and minimal lines are ever popular in these Bermondsey bathrooms.
Bermondsey Property Style & History
Owing to its proximity to the south bank of the river Thames, Bermondsey was badly hit during World war II. Left largely unrepaired, Bermondsey remained the heart of London shipping until the 1960s. But with the rapid decline of the shipping industry, the docks of Bermondsey were quickly left derelict. This remained the case for over 20 years until the London Docklands Development Corporation began the redevelopment of the riverside in 1981. This regeneration hasn’t stopped since then with the popularity of the area continuing to rapidly grow. The variety of housing stock owing to the breadth of architecture mean there is something for everyone in Bermondsey, from pre-war homes and ex-council houses to upmarket period flats, warehouse conversions and recent luxury developments. Whatever the style of property we have a bathroom to match.
These days, Bermondsey is back and is fast becoming a destination on the map. Its central location makes it perfect for people working in town but it is also now an absolute hot spot for foodies and culture seekers alike. Rope Walk in the converted Maltby Street railway arches offers street food, innovative dining and cafe culture. While just a stone throw away on Bermondsey Street, the White Cube gallery and the Fashion and Textile Museum add to the area’s cool factor.
