Family-run, independent online tiles specialist Hyperion Tiles joined forces with homeowner Mandy Downham recently to help her create a bespoke en-suite bathroom featuring its distinctive floor and wall tiles.

Hyperion Tiles’ director Richard Skeoch explains: “It was a real pleasure to assist Mandy, who wasn’t sure her budget would accommodate anything in our portfolio. For her bathroom design, she wanted glossy, classy-looking tiles that wouldn’t break the bank. We were happy to show her a range of different colours, patterns, styles and price points.”

Lounge Light Grey Polished Porcelain Tiles (£54 per sq m in a 60cm x 60cm format) were selected for the bathroom floor with Marble Ocean Rock Tiles selected for the walls, these are available in 60cm x 60cm and 120cm x 60cm, and are priced at £65 per sq m.

Mandy’s new bathroom installation was a labour of love that took place as part of a comprehensive loft conversion project.

“I’ve always wanted an en-suite bathroom,” she confides. “I hadn’t had a bath in my house since I first moved in and replaced the existing compact size tub with a large shower. When I decided I wanted my bath back, I calculated that building into the loft was a better and cheaper option than moving to a new house. After all, this would have involved significant expense – and a lot of hassle.”

From the start of the renovation, Mandy was determined to make her new en-suite the main feature of her L-shaped dormer loft conversion. “I knew I wanted everything designed around that bathroom,” she cheerfully admits.

“And I knew I wanted a spa bath to be the highlight of the revamp. I had lots of options to add complementary lighting too, through roof-lights, windows and a selection of specialist light fixtures.”

Despite the scale of such an ambitious project, Mandy’s bathroom makeover took just three months to complete. The bathroom cost around 35,000 for materials and 15,000 for the labour.
