Our customer wanted to change the style of their current hallway and downstairs cloakroom. Both rooms had wooden flooring and the customer wanted to change this to tiles for a more modern look.
We suggested our customers visit Pentagon Tiles in Harlow, a showroom that could help them see what was available and choose a style that they liked. The tiles they chose were classic with modern twist; a mix of grey colours with multiple individual designs on spectate tiles. We had to design a pattern for the layout of the installation.
Before any tiles could be laid, the old wooden flooring had to be removed, along with all the skirting boards. We then laid the new floor using plywood and specialist ‘Ditra’ movement matting. For comfort and warmth, we also installed under-floor heating. We laid the tiles using ‘Bahl’ adhesive in the pattern chosen by the customer and the team at LH Gas Ltd.
The new skirting boards were then cut to size and installed ready for the decoration. The customer chose Farrow and Ball paint, which was also used on the woodwork giving a great finish.
The WC and basin vanity unit was reinstalled in the cloakroom and a white two-column radiator was installed to achieve a real feature effect. In the hallway, we installed a second two-column radiator that had been painted in the chosen “rail colour grey” specialist paint.
The radiators really complemented the new floor and certainly gave each room a luxury feel to them. This renovation really delivered, it gave the property a beautiful unique feel and had the wow factor.
