Lisa Bardell's Signature London Bathroom Renovation

Kallums Bathrooms recently partnered with celebrated presenter, DJ, and gut health activist, Lisa Bardell to complete her London Bathroom Renovation. Lisa is one half of the talented duo, The Mac Twins!

Lisa was looking for a local bathroom company to entrust her large, luxury bathroom renovation to, and was soon recommended Kallums Bathrooms. She loved the idea of working with a small, local family run business, and quickly arranged a consultation with us.

With three bathrooms to transform (one of which was originally a kitchen that needed to be transformed into a luxurious bathroom!) Kallums were thrilled to undertake such an exciting project.

Now that the bathroom renovation is complete, Ellie (our Digital Marketing Manager) caught up with Lisa for all the details on her incredible luxury bathroom renovation and how she found working with Kallums.

What made you decide to undertake such a large London bathroom renovation project?

From when we first had a meeting with our architects – I knew I wanted a big family bathroom as opposed to en suites.

It was for sentimental reasons really, when I was younger my fondest memories are of bath time, the chats, the play, the ritual of it all… I wanted somewhere big and welcoming enough that the whole family could be in there – as chaotic as that may be…

What made you choose Kallums for your bathroom renovations?

My sister in law recommended Kallums and from our first meeting with Karolina I knew we were in safe hands – my husband and I were both really relaxed and open to ideas and suggestions so let her have a lot of free reign on the direction.

Did you have a clear design concept in mind before starting the project?

Not at all! My Pinterest board has lots of bold prints, brass and wallpaper – but that was only jump off point really.

I have a bath every evening and it’s the only time of the day I’m not speaking to anyone – its my sanctuary. So splashing out on a free standing bath was a real luxury for us.

What drew you to a traditional bathroom design?

I really wanted to avoid loads of white spaces and marble as I wanted the main bathroom to still feel cosy, it’s quite a big space if you include the wet room too – so the big statement lights and double sink really fill the space.

The wood effect floors really add to the warmth, and I love that we can have it extending right into the shower too.

Do you have a favourite out of your three new bathrooms?

I can’t leave the smaller bathrooms out! I love what we’ve managed to do with the space in the smaller bathrooms – there’s nothing worse than knocking knees on sinks and difficult lay outs for cloakroom bathrooms.

One day I want to fill them both with pictures and trinkets, but for now I like the simplicity of the Burlington features and the wallpaper.

What is your favourite part of your new bathroom?

The Glamora wallpaper is honestly my favourite feature of our entire house – I can’t stop staring at it. It’s so statement without feeling too garish – I would have Glamora in every room if I could!

What advice would you give for someone planning a bespoke bathroom remodel?

Pick a feature or item and build everything around that… for me it was having the bath by the window and everything else cascaded from there.

How was your experience working with Kallums?

Incredible! They were so speedy, reliable and I wish I’d had Karolina to design the whole rest of the house with me – she got my taste (and dislikes!) immediately.
