Where Our Guests Wash

Not only our guests get to use this shower room. I use it every day and I love it. The walls, right up to the ceiling, and the floors are covered in Travertine Marble, the walk in shower tray is also in Travertine and took 6 men to carry into the house. The sink is also Travertine and mirrors span 2 walls (so you can see the back of your head and the bathroom goes into infinity which give a fantastic feeling of space in quite a small room. The shower area is lined with Swanstone, this was to avoid the problem of grouting discolouring where there is so much water. The shower head is a 12" drencher which makes for a fabulous shower experience. This area has a shelf built into the Swanstone for taking all the toiletries. The toilet cistern is hidden in the wall with access via a very useful shelf.

I thoroughly enjoyed designing this room and have never found anything to fault it since it was finished about 3 years ago. When you buy Travertine Marble it is quite a shock to find it is full of holes but the tilers fill it with slurry grout and polish it and it gives the most amazing effect. Expensive but will last a lifetime and longer.
