Top Three Popular Barnes Bathroom Renovations And Styles
- Period Property Bathrooms
With many Georgian riverside and other period properties in the area we are increasingly requested to design bathrooms in keeping with the property style. Metro tiles, perhaps in the herringbone pattern are ever popular as well as more vintage brass and copper tapware. We install a lot of Georgian style paneling as well as traditional lighting, sometimes instead of downlighters.
- Loft Conversion Bathrooms
With the high price of Barnes properties we see a number of clients looking to install bathrooms in period property loft conversions. We can work with clients both at the design stage of the conversion or following its construction and our bathroom fitters are experienced in catering for one off, sometimes tricky spaces and designing to make the most of them. Bathroom fitting in loft conversions has become one of our specialties from big spaces with free standing baths to clever solutions to slightly less practical spaces.
- Multiple Bathroom Installations
Installing multiple bathrooms at the same time makes sense for us and the client. We regularly take on jobs that involve having two or three of our bathroom fitting teams on one site, working to renovate multiple bathrooms in a quick period of time. Clients often request a style or theme to run throughout, which brings a real sense of design and clarity to a property. Clearly we benefit from the economies of scale on multiple bathroom installations and are happy to pass this on to our clients.
Barnes Property Style And History
Barnes is so often described as your quintessential country village based in London, with independent shops, country like pubs and farmers markets, surrounded on three sides by the River Thames. New development in Barnes boomed following the opening of Hammersmith Bridge in 1827, with many impressive villa like homes being built at this time. Barnes is recognised as an area of historical importance and some of it’s Georgian riverside properties are the oldest of their kind in London. There are also many more modern but highly desirable riverside flats in the area.
