Very last month, we spotlighted Ferren Gipson’s Ikea hack kitchen area that she designed herself. The current kitchen area experienced been encumbered by a washer/dryer and large boiler that needed to be moved somewhere else. Which is what led Ferren to overhaul the toilet first. An American artwork historian in London, Ferren finds visual inspiration all over—for the tub, she looked to Victorian public restrooms for layout strategies and started sketching plans.
Ferren labored with nearby contractors Palali Building on the bathtub and kitchen area, and managed to get both equally accomplished in the midst of the pandemic—while she, her partner, and their 5-year-aged son had been all holed up at residence. And that wasn’t the only challenge: this is the sole bathroom in the family’s smaller row house. In the course of the five weeks of building, the crew set up the bathroom and tub so they could be applied immediately after-hours—and as-essential during the day.
The existing rest room “wasn’t terrible,” Ferren tells us, “it just didn’t function effectively, and there was a different shower stall from the tub that didn’t make sense.” The completed area manages to incorporate the washer/dryer and a new, compact boiler, all almost unnoticeably. Sign up for us for a appear around.
