Bathroom design showcases Elstead Lighting new IP-rated chandelier
See this master bathroom suite with real ‘wow’-factor…
newly designed by well-known interior designers Debra Carroll Interiors in Altrincham, South Manchester. It features the Elstead Lighting CRYSTAL SKYE Bathroom Island Chandelier and matching wall lights supplied by lighting specialists Moonbeam Lighting and represents another successful collaboration between Debra Carroll and Moonbeam.
Our client’s brief:
Clean lines, sparkling materials, modern yet classical, were just some of the design cues the client behind this room was after. An enveloping and luxurious bathtub, his and her hand basins, separate walk-in shower and other vitreous ware in gleaming white with chrome fittings was a given. But the room still had to have warmth. Debra Carroll’s solved this with the very unique Marram Grass shade of bathroom-approved paint by Fenwick & Tilbrook on the vanity units and matching walls.
The pièce de résistance – the lighting
From the outset the homeowners knew they wanted knock-out, hotel room, style with opulence and glamour for this room. High on the list was a stunningly modern chrome chandelier with its tens of sparkling lead crystal prisms to shine.
All too few hanging lights are safe for bathroom use. Moonbeam Lighting were able to specify US Kichler company’s Crystal Skye Island chandelier with its 8 x 3.5W LED bulbs and matching wall lights. As the entire Crystal Skye range is IP44-rated that means it can safely preside over a bath as seen in our photographs. To protect against water ingress or splashing, the supplied bulbs are each protected inside a clear screw-on cover whilst the wiring is carefully sealed at its junction with the fitting and the ceiling rose.
Debra Carroll also recommended the stunning backdrop to the Crystal Skye behind the bath in a herringbone pattern using Palisandra Polished Marble tiles exclusively available from Mandarin Stone.
A wide choice of versions
The 8-light, 65cm long, Island Chandelier was selected but we could equally have gone for the even longer 12-light, 89cm version seen displayed at a local bathroom supplier. Or, we could have installed the circular 8-light, 53cm diameter version.
And there is a smaller circular 6-light version and a 2-light mini-pendant mirroring the 2-light wall lights in this very flexible range.
The bathroom isn’t the only place for luxury!
Any one of the Crystal Skye family of lights would also look stunning in the living room or above a kitchen island or along a hallway.
