Aqualux rides to the rescue with Channel 5's Cowboy Builders
Aqualux was delighted to be approached for the second time to supply an Organic Walk-In shower surround to the Channel Five television programme, Cowboy Builders, for use in a stylish refurbishment project. The show provides makeovers to families whose homes have been ruined due to the incompetency of unqualified or incapable builders.
In the episode, Simon and Diane from Guildford had fallen victim to the dangerous workmanship of a serial cowboy builder, leaving them with a freezing cold house due to a poorly fitted roof, as well as potentially lethal structural issues.
Now, however, the pair have a beautiful new home including a luxurious, elegant en-suite bathroom complete with an Aqualux AquaSpace Organic Walk-In shower surround. The Organic Walk-In was specifically requested by the designer on the show, who wanted to give Simon and Diane a stylish bathroom retreat. On a practical note, the shower also needed to be spacious enough to allow lots of room for Diane, who suffers from chronic rheumatoid arthritis. With the expansive, curved shapes of the conjoined bathing and drying areas, complete with a beautiful and sturdy bamboo footboard, the Organic Walk-In was the ideal choice.
The episode can be viewed on the Cowboy Builders website. To see the Organic Walk-In adding class and luxury to Simon and Diane's bathroom, simply go to: www.channel5.com and click on Series 5, Episode 6: Guildford
