Battersea Bathroom Installation & Fitting
Battersea has fast become one of our hotspots for both single and multiple bathroom renovations. With Battersea Power Station undergoing a £6bn transformation and with the Northern line set to be extended to Battersea in 2019 the area seems to have attracted an enormous amount of property investment. We have been installing bathrooms in Battersea for a broad spectrum of clients in the area, from foreign investment landlords to local families smartening up their period homes. It’s certainly an area of great activity right now.
Top Three Popular Battersea Bathroom Renovations And Styles
- Multiple Bathroom Installations
With the rapid price increases in property values over the past few years, we get a lot of jobs in Battersea that are multiple bathroom installations as part of complete property redevelopments. Our ability to renovate multiple bathrooms at the same time and quickly, with various teams on site, is appreciated by our clients, along with the economies of scale they benefit from.
- Period Property Bathrooms
With a wealth of period conversions and Edwardian homes and Victorian Villas in the area we certainly renovate a lot of period property bathrooms. Whilst not always the case, our clients often want our Battersea bathroom designs and installation to be in keeping with their period property style. Herringbone metro tiles, Georgian style paneling and traditional fixtures and fittings are often the order of the day.
- Family Suitable Bathrooms
Battersea as an area is a big draw for young families, as such we install a lot of family friendly bathrooms in the area. Often in these cases practical and cost saving bathroom designs are needed. Easy access to the bath, retractable screens, hand held showers as well as rainforest ones, easy clean tiles and products often feature in our Battersea bathroom installations.
Battersea Property Style & History
Clapham Junction station sits right in the middle of Battersea and is Britian’s busiest station with circa 2000 trains passing a day. Amusingly the station should have really been called Battersea station but in Victorian times Battersea was considered so unpopular as a location that it’s station was named Clapham Junction, with planners hoping it might acquire some of the desirability of itsneighbour. A lot of Battersea property was built between 1840 and 1910 with the population increasing from 6,000 to 168,000 explaining the huge number of period properties with a notable peak of building in the 1880’s and 1890’s, with the construction of Queen Anne style houses, mansion blocks and cottages. Today the area has a large number of period conversions along with a reasonably broad supply of Edwardian and Victorian homes as well as ex local authority flats and houses.
