An Indulgent Dip: This Terraced London Home Gets a Stunning Sunken Bath

Get past those two, and you tend to focus on the living room or even the dining area before you work your way towards the kitchen. But this fabulous, terraced home in London got a modern upgrade with an amazing and relaxing sunken bath as its true showstopper. Nestled in a lovely neighborhood of Clapton, East London, the Sunken Bath project gives a classic British home a smart modern upgrade with a sparkling kitchen, dining area, stylish bathroom and toilet that extend into the garden outside.
