HI-MACS is key to superb wetroom design
The floor, walls, vanity unit with integrated basins and wall storage alcoves are all fabricated from HI-MACS® – the natural stone acrylic material with specialist properties like a non-porous, impervious, hygienic and low maintenance surface.
Being a solid surface with seamless joins HI-MACS® obviates in need for grouting where dirt or germs can gather.
The wetroom is a fantastic creation with two Vado shower areas including a Vado Ethos ceiling-mounted shower head surrounded by embedded LED downlights and a wall mounted mirror/TV unit. The other shower area is equipped with dual stalk-mounted heads with the main pad head being adjustable and the other smaller head removable for hand-held use on an integrated chrome hose.
HI-MACS® was also selected for its thermo-formability which didn’t inhibit the designers or fabricators in any way. The floor is HI-MACS® Beach Sand to distinguish it from the walls and units which are all in Nougat Cream.
The vanity unit with integrated twin basins uses standard HI-MACS® basins, (CB465) which proved perfect for the overall project design.
Bespoke Surfaces Ltd says that the special properties and opportunities offered by HI-MACS® as a material was essential to the project and made the whole concept feasible.
A similar bathroom would retail at about £30,000.
