Wandsworth Bathroom Installation & Fitting
In recent times, Wandsworth has attracted young couples and families in their swathes. The area becoming ever appealing with plenty of open space, good transport links and excellent schools. We find ourselves fitting bathrooms in both period and more modern (often only 7- 15 years old) properties in the area on a roughly 50/50 basis. As well as family friendly bathrooms we get a lot of requests for designs that look great and appeal to young couples and professionals.
Top Three Popular Wandsworth Bathroom Renovations And Styles
- Modern Refreshes Of Relatively New Bathrooms
We see a lot of clients living in relatively modern apartment blocks looking to refresh tired bathrooms and in some cases rectify problems with leaks. Often these types of bathroom installations are surprisingly affordable, given the design is often maintained. The end results really help to make apartments feel new again. For these types of jobs we suggest to clients that they use our fitting only service, ordering products through us but saving money on unnecessary design and project management.
- Quirky Family Bathrooms
Our Wandsworth bathroom installations often seem to attract some quite colourful and quirky designs. Whether it’s something fun for the family or wanting a design that stands out from the crowd we are sure we can come up with a design you will love.
- Traditional Space Saving Designs
With a fair few cottage style properties we are regularly asked to install traditional style bathrooms that maximise relatively small spaces. Typical ideas are traditional sink units with open space underneath, compact toilets and clever bath/ shower designs and layouts. Often our bathroom installations are designed with re-sale value in mind, with the feeling of space and a layout that photographs well key to that purpose.
Wandsworth Property Style & History
Until recently the waterterfront areas of Wandsworth had been blighted by their industrial past but much of this has now been swept away and replaced with new developments of attractive apartments and riverside walkways. The area is certainly a hive of redevelopment.
As with so much of South West London it was the arrival of the railway that first attracted people to Wandsworth, with thousands of houses being built in the area during Victorian times. There were then many more homes built in both the 1920s and 1930s equipped with gas and electricity and a further surge in the 1950s as part of a big rebuilding scheme. As such Wandsworth property is very much a story of two halves with many period property areas such as the “toastrack,” a series of streets and properties overlooking Wandsworth common, so called because of their appearance when viewed on a map as well as brand new riverside apartment blocks such as the Riverside Quarter and Battersea Reach.
