Featured Designer – Ocean Bathrooms

This month’s FEATURED DESIGNER is Joe Mühl from Ocean Bathrooms in Bridport, Dorset, who transformed an outdated bathroom into a luxurious, open plan design using  Virtual Worlds room planning software.

The brief required a complete redesign, removing all previous aspects of the room and replacing them with high quality fixtures and fittings to give a sense of space and relaxation.

Though the room itself was large, the arrangement of items such as a central bath made it seem small, dark and awkward. After a site visit by the designer, Joe Mühl, and fitter, Mark Coleman, Joe went to work preparing the 3D design with Virtual Worlds planning software.

Virtual Worlds contains everything a designer requires for an impressive, accurate and photo-realistic design, including a wide range of product catalogues so that both designer and client can see exactly what their finished room will look like.

Once Joe had put the finishing touches to his design, the clients were invited along to the showroom where they could view the chosen products, make sure they were happy with the choices and finalise decisions on wood finishes and tiles. Joe was then able to provide them with a detailed quote.

Where Virtual Worlds 3D room planning software really comes into its own is the level of detail available – meaning that mistakes and alterations are far less likely. Joe’s designs were able to incorporate the exact elements of the room, for example the basin, tiling scheme and even the shaver socket, which led to Ocean Bathrooms being chosen by the client, over another designer who had failed to provide that fine detail, or any openness.

The bathroom included fully tiled floor and walls, with underfloor heating to give a warm, welcoming atmosphere. Part of the customer’s brief was to have a high quality shower that the client “won’t want to get out of”! This came in the form of a Hansgrohe Raindance overhead and hand shower, within a spacious walk-in wetroom with a Matki Eauzone Plus screen.

One of the main focal points of the room is a stunning Duravit double basin unit. The large Travertine tiles give the bathroom a sense of seamlessness and show off the space whilst also lending a warmth to the room.
