Our Designer’s Top Picks: Dez Ferguson
In our last blog in this series, we heard from Chloe who told us about the kitchen she designed for her home. This time we’ve moved onto Dez Ferguson who is also based in our Milton Keynes showroom, where he specialises as a Bathroom Designer. Dez's designs can be seen far and wide; also all over Bedfordshire since he previously worked from our Bedford store.
Dez has created countless dream bathrooms while he’s been in the industry for the past 20 years, so it wasn’t easy for him to pick a favourite design. However, one that recently stood out for him was a bathroom designed for a customer locally in Milton Keynes. Dez tells us more below:
These customers came to Marabese needing a new bathroom, having heard good things about us from friends and family, so we were keen to do a great job. They had come to us with a budget of £10,000 which we stayed well below.
The installation went to plan the whole way through which meant we could have everything fitted and ready to use within 10 days. We had no problems during this installation much to both mine and the customer delight!
Designing this bathroom was interesting; the customer was looking for something contemporary and modern using neutral greys, silvers and blacks throughout. For the accent wall we used the Split Face Black Slate tiles; these added textures and an architectural feature which really draws the eye.
The tiles provide a stunning backdrop for the Heritage Hylton bath, which has an unusual stainless-steel metallic look finish. The bath has a shapely design and is positioned away from the wall, helping to make it ‘pop’ all the more and be a feature in itself.
We used a Crosswater Svelte unit in grey ash with a white basin under a Utopia Deluxe mirror with back lighting to add a luxurious feel to the room.
The floors are stylishly covered in Dolphin Moon wood look plank tiles, with the same tile cleverly being used as a splashback behind the basin. This creates a cohesive look and gives a spa-like effect.
