Studio 28’s Stacey Hewett teams up with On The Level to realise a luxury wetroom vision

The brief was to transform a three-bed, two-bath flat into a luxury three-bedroom, three-bath apartment, incorporating a large master bedroom suite with a walk-in wet room and adjoining master bathroom. As the architectural layout was completely restructured, Studio 28’s interior designer Stacey Hewett started searching for “wet room specialists”. Local to the Hertfordshire project was On The Level (OTL). Stacey Hewett was excited by their products, and was particularly impressed that the company was trade-oriented and could navigate through detailed specifications and technical information.

At this point, Stacey and the Studio 28 project team were clear in terms of the brief and what they wanted to achieve.

“I wanted something high-end, luxurious and discreet. I liked the SuperSlim Tile-In linear drainage product because of the minimal look and ability to make the drain blend in seamlessly with the planned tiling. Little did I know what would be recommended to me”, said Hewett.

When OTL discussed the brief with Stacey, they mentioned their brand new, INFINITY I-Line product – which was at that time a few months away from an official launch. Exclusive to OTL, the INFINITY I-Line is the ultimate minimalist designer wetroom flooring solution, with a hidden channel edging the wall, into which water drains discreetly over a gently sloped floor. It’s designed to leave no visible drain and is the perfect choice for interior architects, designers and project managers looking for the very latest in hidden drain technology for luxury, high-end wet rooms. It fitted the brief perfectly.

Hewett said, “My view as a designer is that if you can’t see the services but the functionality is 100% top quality, then that’s always the best choice and it certainly looks the smartest as far as I’m concerned.”

Another aspect of the project where the OTL team was extremely helpful was in discussions about the best flooring – given the very heavy natural stone finish that was planned throughout. There were various options, including the builder screeding the floor with a fall built in. “We went for this screed option ultimately as most appropriate, but only after discussion with OTL”, said Hewett.

Mark Crabtree, Sales Director from On The Level, was delighted with the finished project: “We were involved the whole way through and even took a sample of the INFINITY I-Line product to the site so that Stacey and the team could see, feel and handle it for themselves. We were 100% confident that it was going to be exactly what we wanted.”

OTL manufacture and supply high quality, bespoke wet room solutions. Their customers include the UK’s best known contractors, project managers, architects, and designers.
