5 Tips For A More Blissful Annexe Bathroom

Smart annexe bathroom planning means comfort & style can be yours with these 5 top tips.

One of the most important aspects of annexe planning is to make all the provisions required to meet the needs of the new annexe owner. Bathroom adaptations are some of our most requested additions when it comes to annexe design.


1. Safety First ! Grab Rails, Shower Seats & Comfort Height Toilets

When it comes to annexe bathroom designing, safety is usually high on the priority list, especially if the annexe is for an elderly relative.

Because annexes allow you to add adaptations really easily (whether they are lodges or custom build onsite annexes) you can make sure you have essential aids in the bathroom that make life just that little bit easier for everyone concerned :-

  • Shower seats
  • Grab rails
  • Comfort height toilets

We make sure your annexe bathroom is both beautiful and safe for added peace of mind as part of our on site consultation service.


2. Warm & Stylish Floors

For our lodge style annexes you can choose from a wide choice of warm vinyl flooring finishes for your bathroom which is then fitted before your lodge arrives ready to move into.

It’s warm underfoot, not too slippy when wet, durable and easy to clean.

For our custom build on site annexes, we offer a wide range of vinyl click flooring which offers all the benefits of vinyl but is laid like an interlocking laminate flooring to create a water resistant floor.

Either way, your annexe bathroom floor will add style to your bathroom as well as being practical for many years to come.


3. Premium Showers & Baths

Some of our lodge style annexes have the most stunning bathrooms – it’s one of the key areas that benefits from being manufactured.

Where it’s carefully fitted out with lighting, tiling or wall panels, fixtures and fittings before being delivered to it’s new location at your home where we connect up your services.

We will connect your lodge or annexe to mains water at all times, so you can enjoy all the aspects of a shower or bath in an annexe or lodge just as you would in an apartment or house.

We only fit premium showers and although we don’t get asked very frequently about baths, of course you can have one if you wish or if space allows.

Our custom build on site service offers the modern grout-free wall panel finish (not tiles) to create a similar look.

4. Wall Panels For A Grout Free Stunning Finish

For our lodges style annexes, traditional bathroom wall tiling is still an option.

However for many of us (who hate trying to keep grout clean & fresh) the new ranges of waterproof wall panels like FIBO are a total revelation that can transform your bathroom from something ordinary into something extraordinary.

Available in both our lodge style annex range and our custom build annexes, you are literally spoilt for choice.


5. Lights, Mirrors & Vanity Units

Creating a vibrant bathroom with your wall finish can really help your annexe bathroom stand out and be striking like the Hampton en-suite pictured above & below. The whole look is completed by the sparkling chrome fixtures & fixings, vanity unit storage in a classic style and a wooden Venetian blind with ribbon detailing on the window.

In contrast the Bella Vista bathroom uses muted colours to create a more restful bathroom with a high-end luxury hotel look and feel to it.

A clever floor plan that makes the best use of the space available together with the lit mirror over the streamline vanity unit makes for a luxurious bathroom to inspire yours!
