Five Star Finish for a Residential Property

Beautiful wetrooms give a luxury residential property in Kent a five-star finish

A stunning residential project in Longfield, Kent, saw multiple wetrooms installed and stylishly fitted with our products, creating both level entry access and a uniform look. The development, led by Daniel Berry of ATD Design Solutions, began with a smaller specification of one en-suite bathroom. However, once the work began and the homeowner saw the quality of work and systems involved, they requested further work to be carried out, including additional bathrooms and the uncoupling membrane Schlüter-DITRA in the downstairs living area.

A practical and, above all, stylish KERDI-BOARD niche including LIPROTEC LED lighting was also installed in the floor-level shower.

The KERDI-SHOWER and KERDI-LINE systems were used to achieve a two-way incline.

Customised shower drains

The low height drainage system Schlüter-KERDI-LINE installed in each of the bathrooms ensured simple level access for an area which would be far trickier to achieve using a standard drain. This was particularly apparent in the forementioned en-suite which was specified with a two-way fall in the shower. The unique feature was stylishly developed with flush transitions, coming together by first screeding the shower floor and then using Schlüter-KERDI-SHOWER-LTS sloped shower board to create the required fall. U-shaped channel profile Schlüter-DECO-SG made the attachment of a glass screen possible without damaging the waterproofing layer beneath the tiles.

When a bespoke area is specified within a wetroom, I find that it makes the most sense to use products from the same manufacturer where possible. In the case of the two-way fall within the shower, this meant using Schlüter’s drainage system and shower board, both low in height and ideal for the task at hand.

Bathrooms to feel good in

Underfloor heating provided a sense of luxury and warmth to the bathroom floors, and the installation of electric heating system Schlüter-DITRA-HEAT-DUO made this easy. Whilst offering low assembly heights, the benefits of a system like this one include sound reduction and fast warm-up.

Schlüter’s profile trims were used in abundance in the bathrooms due to the variety of textures and finishes within the range. This meant the tiles could match perfectly for a seamless finish. Daniel added, “The use of the various profiles, including JOLLY, QUADEC and FINEC, really enhanced the overall look of each bathroom. This, paired with the reassurance that the tiles will be protected made the choice to use Schlüter’s profile trims a simple one.”

Individual and reliable system solutions

I am always impressed with the quality of Schlüter’s products and services. Whether installed behind the tiles or to help protect them on the surface, I can rest in the knowledge that whatever has been specified will stand the test of time.

A notable use of the Schlüter-DILEX profile was carried out in the open plan living area where the floor tiles met the patio doors. To allow for perimeter movement, DILEX-BWA was installed in the colour black. Not only did this offer the flexibility required for the tiles to sit against the patio doors, it also perfectly matched the colour of the door to offer a harmonious finish.

This high-end residential project has showcased some fantastic examples of Schlüter products in situ, demonstrating how they can help construct features such as the two-way fall in the shower and offer reliable protection of tile and stone installations thanks to the range of profiles available.
