Restoring Victorian Splendour

Restoring Victorian Splendour

Islington, London

The Challenge

Our client renovated the main bathroom in his London flat only two years previously but in that short time he had come to regret the installers he chose to do the job. The layout hadn’t made the best use of the limited space, there was ugly boxing concealing the pipework and the poor-quality tiles and fittings had already started to lose their shine.

He was careful not to make the same mistake again so asked Foam & Bubbles to visit the property and provide an immersive design which allowed him to really get a sense of what his new bathroom would look like fully installed.


Floor Plan



Our Solution

Following an at home visit we proposed several changes to completely refresh the bathroom while keeping the Victorian aesthetic:

  • Replacing the bath to create a spacious wetroom layout
  • Use concealed fittings to remove the boxing and hide the pipework
  • Move the sink to make the most of the additional space
  • Upgraded all the fixtures, fittings, tiles and accessories for a finish that would last
  • Updated the lighting scheme to create a greater ambiance
  • Add some additional storage in the mirror cabinet

Design & Quotation

We provided our client with a Virtual Reality headset and detailed quote for the supply & installation of the bathroom which allowed him to give precise feedback about the final changes he wanted before signing off on the whole project.

Before the work began our client had the opportunity to meet our approved installer, vet his credentials, previous work and plan the job so there was always a usable toilet in the property and as little disruption as possible. Within a month the project had gone from design through to completion with the only alteration to the proposed work was a request for a bespoke Carrera marble windowsill which was turned around and installed in 24 hours.

The Results


"Avinash at Foam & Bubbles did an excellent job throughout the design process & the team who fitted the bathroom were equally professional. Excellent communication & execution; highly recommended... a bathroom to be truly proud of!"
