2023 Master Builder Awards, Bathroom Project
National winner: Marlfield Joinery and Construction Ltd
After their living needs changed suddenly, the owners of this traditional farmhouse asked Marlfield Joinery and Construction Ltd to help them design and build a small extension to enable them to make the best use of their space, and accommodate mobility aids and equipment. The result added a downstairs bedroom and ensuite bathroom, facilitating assisted living as well as an independent lifestyle.
A far cry from the clinical style associated with accessible bathrooms, the finished project is a bathroom that’s worthy of any interior magazine. The shower area offers level access and is enclosed with a half-height wall that supports a shower seat and arm rests. The non-slip mosaic tiles in the shower were chosen to complement the encaustic-style flooring in the dry area of the room. Marlfield Joinery and Construction Ltd ensured that no detail was left out - sourcing an air body dryer to help the client have full independent use of the new facilities.
The result is a bathroom to be proud of, with the clients commending their work. 'We would highly recommend anyone to use Marlfield Joinery and Construction Ltd for any of their building works but if you are looking for a dignified and discreet team striving for your needs, there is no other Master Builder that we could recommend apart from them.'
The national judges agreed that this project ‘raises the bar as far as accessible bathrooms are concerned’. They praised the builder’s sensitive approach to the clients’ needs and the way they included them at every stage in the decision-making process. They also appreciated the aesthetic appeal that was maintained in the project, describing the finished result as ‘stunning’.
