Bathroom refurbishment - fully sustainable
A private client contacted Upcircle to develop a fully sustainable bathroom. To fulfil the brief and at the same time to respect the budget, we have meticulously selected each of the items:
The floor and wall tiles contain 40% recycled content. It is also rated Breeam A with ISO 14001 and ISO 9001 certified.
The bespoke vanity unit is made from vintage mid-century furniture with an additional top in Smile plastic, which is a high resistant panel made of 100% recycled plastic produced in the UK.
All the sanitary-ware items are from Roca: a brand that is known to be one of the most sustainable manufacturers in the sector. The products are made with a new ceramic technology that uses less energy during the manufacturing process than standard ceramics. Its high performance and minimal design facilitate the product’s maintenance.
The paint selected is Graphenstone, which is the most advanced solution in the market for ecological and natural paints.
All the lights are LED, and IP45 or IP60 produced in the UK.
All the brass-ware is 15-years warranty, ensuring the durability of the project.
We are so happy that we used Ophelia to help us with designing our bathroom. She identified eco-friendly designs and products in different price ranges that were perfect for our needs, met with the builder and provided him with detailed specifications and was available throughout the process for questions. She listened to our requests /colour preferences and suggested some items/ideas that we wouldn't have thought of -but that made our bathroom perfect! Ophelia is also an extremely pleasant and patient person to work with :-). I would highly recommend Upcircle / Ophelia and in fact we have already asked Ophelia to provide some designs for another renovation that needs to be done.
