Bespoke shower for an Attic Conversion

With homeowners adding value to their homes, its usually a case of adding rooms either by a basement conversion or an attic conversion.  This is great way of extending the home.

At bespoke we have found that there is a slight problem with the attic conversion especially when it comes to adding a shower or wet room and that being what space is left for this purpose.

Attics usually have a pitched roofs incorporated within and can cause an issue when looking to add the aforementioned shower or wetroom due to the angle or slope of the ceiling.

We at bespoke have helped out a few hundred clients with this issue and have come up with some of the best wetrooms or shower rooms either enclosed fully or partially.

Its a little more tricky than the standard shower as there has to be a cutout or similar to the glass.

Our easy to follow template you can print out and fill in the gaps can help us achieve an accurate measurement of the space that you require glass for your attic shower project.

template guide for shower glass for attic

 

From this template we can provide you with a working set of drawings with door gaps and all the required fittings, mounts and seals to allow for a fully functional shower screen.

Some key things to allow when measuring:

  • Allow time to measure
  • Measure each point twice ( or get a friend to check after)
  • Measure accurately
  • measure the aperature only when fully finished ( tiled or otherwise)

When the glass/ products are delivered and installed we assure you they all look great.

Toughened Frameless Glass for stairs

Toughened Frameless Glass for Staircase in London.

With a full house refurbishment in progress we were asked to complete the project with both internal and external frameless glass for various areas of the property.

The client was keen to have as little ‘framework as possible’ to allow for light to travel throughout the property.

The staircase the glass was fitted to was over 4 floors and would travel the distance from basment to the upper floor areas.

The client had chosen to fix the glass to the string of the staircase with stainless steel standoff fixings that Bespoke glass provided.

bespoke frameless staircase Bespoke Staircase in glass frameless glass for stairsPrevious to the glass being fitted the stairs had to be templated and readied for the glass processing table. All of the glass was ‘CNC’ed for accuracy and all individual items were polished with various strategic drilled holes as per the templates supplied.

Bespoke helped with the design and implementation of the whole project with a client that had not used glass before and although there were a few little hick-ups the client was able to creat something very unique and substantial withing the said property.

Lead time was appox 6 weeks from 1st telephone call to installation completed.

IMAG0526The 12 meter by 2.7 meter glass wall and 4x Full height glass doors at 900mm took a total of 4 days to complete, moreso held back slightly by the logistics of getting glass to the required office area.
Still with a smile and working late into the evening the installers were able to turn an open area into a meeting room and a board room, which are now additional to the original open office plan.

Light and space are kept within the original design due to the glass but privacy and individual space previously unused are now encompassed.

frameless glass shop front doors

Making a first Impression with Frameless Glass Shop Front Doors is pretty simple.

As with the local restaurant pictured, we are able to create a  first impression reasonably easily.

Giving your retail or restaurant premisis a secure yet completely see through glass door/ wall so to speak has much more benefits than that of a traditional door system.

  • Free Lighting
  • Free advertising
  • Completely secure
  • Cost effective
  • Low maintenance costs
  • Easy to rebrand
  • Great Looking
  • Quick installation times

We live and operate in a very tightly held local historical city ( Bath ) and yet glass is one of the less subjective issues that we deal with when it comes to conservation and planning.

You will find many buildings are now starting to use glass to clad the buildings that were once stone or brick. I credit local/ national vehicle garages who have somewhat been a leader in glass entrances/ buildings.. Don’t believe me? Just drive down to your local BMW dealer showroom or similar.

For the very reasons we have listed, you can see the attraction of glass.

There are may types of hinge systems that can be used, with either self closing or swing free,  huge selection of other hardware including door handles ( the fish handles in the picture are custom made and designed by us) custom door handles

Door Handles

There is also a whole host of handles that can be used off the shelf so to speak, so need not worry about inflated costs by going bespoke, albeit  a game changer!

Bespoke Shower Door

Bespoke Shower Door in Bath

One of the most gratifying parts of our job when supplying or fitting bespoke glass is the end result. The  client or customer usually has an idea of what type of shower door they would like, or what shape of cut glass they need when they order glass from Bespoke. But having the vision from conception to installation can make a dramatic change to the room.

Client installation case study.

We have a client who is a local developer and has just finished a complete house refurbishment in the City of Bath. One of the bedrooms is an en suite and the client wanted to add a little privacy but without being over subtle.
We suggested that perhaps he may opt for a smoked grey glass instead of the normal sandblasted clear or patterned glass screen and door.
So he gave it a go.

It was a simple glass door for the toilet and and a 1/4 screen for the shower area so to stop any water getting splashed onto the adjacent wall.

The end result was very endulgent, with a slight tinted glass for the shower, the glass gave more of a feature and as the client wanted, just a little privacy where needed, even if it was just to tone down the lighting from bright to a mood setting low light.

You can really see the contrast if you look at the bottom of the glass door and to the left of the shower opening.

Credit to the developer, the shower room was a credit to the house and I am sure it will be enjoyed for many years to come by its new owner.
