Hi-Macs is key to superb wetroom design
Designed and made by Bespoke Surfaces, a specialist designer of bespoke kitchen and bathroom designs, this new wetroom display features the solid surface material Hi-Macs, which especially lends itself to this type of application.
The floor, walls, vanity unit with integrated basins and wall storage alcoves are all fabricated from Hi-Macs - the natural stone acrylic material with specialist properties such as a non-porous, impervious, hygienic and low maintenance surface. Being a solid surface with seamless joins Hi-Macs obviates in need for grouting where dirt or germs can gather.
The wetroom is a fantastic creation with two Vado shower areas including a Vado Ethos ceiling-mounted shower head surrounded by embedded LED downlights and a wall mounted mirror/TV unit.
The other shower area is equipped with dual stalk-mounted heads with the main pad head being adjustable and the other smaller head removable for hand-held use on an integrated chrome hose.
Hi-Macs was also selected for its thermo-formability which didn't inhibit the designers or fabricators in any way. The floor is Hi-Macs Beach Sand to distinguish it from the walls and units which are all in Nougat Cream.
The vanity unit with integrated twin basins uses standard Hi-Macs basins, (CB465) which proved perfect for the overall project design.
Bespoke Surfaces says that the special properties and opportunities offered by Hi-Macs as a material was essential to the project and made the whole concept feasible.
