Indoor-outdoor feel with a light filled pavilion
A pavilion at the rear of this two storey terrace contained the kitchen, bathroom, toilet and laundry. The kitchen was dated and lacked bench space and storage. The dining room connected the main house to the pavilion.
Cheryl's ensuite was leaking and due for an update. My commission was to modernise the room and give it a more spacious feel while keeping costs down.
The ensuite was stripped and waterproofed. Costs were trimmed by repairing the plumbing but keeping it in place. Floor to ceiling tiling, a wall mounted vanity and frameless shower screen gave an impression of greater space. This is the client’s description of the completed project.
A modern and functional interior complementing the timeless exterior.
While the exteriors of 19th century terraces can be described as timeless, the same cannot be said for the interiors, in particular kitchens and bathrooms. This grand terrace in Toxteth Estate is such an example. A narrow passage connected the formal dining and lounge rooms at the front of the house to the rear kitchen/casual living room which was itself discontinuous due to varying floor levels. These rooms were gutted and the floor adjusted to be on a single level which led to a new deck.
