Modular Home Bathrooms

Totally Modular is a manufacturer of volumetric modular homes aimed at the affordable and social housing market. Their homes are precision engineered on a factory production line and start as a robust hybrid steel frame. They achieve a build status around 95% completion before they are delivered to site. Based in the West Midlands, they offer a wide range of building styles including houses with up to five beds, bungalows for families, and multi-level apartments.

Totally Modular were looking for a new innovative way to cover the wet areas of their three-bed show home bathroom, currently situated at Dudley College. With their homes being transported across the country, Totally Modular wanted to avoid using wet trades in their buildings and instead work with products that were far more robust than individual tiles. They chose to use Multipanel bathroom wall panels as our durable panels are easy to install and on average can be installed up to a third quicker than tiles.

When the Multipanel solution was installed at our three-bed demonstrator home, we were very impressed,” says Sophie Chater, Sales & Marketing Executive at Totally Modular. “Not just from an aesthetic point of view, but also logistically, this system accommodates our methodology when our homes are being transported across the country.

Our range of decors, featuring finishes including marble and granite, also provides a variety of design possibilities catering for any bathroom size and design taste.

Seeing Multipanel also putting sustainability at the front of their agenda, was important to us when deciding to partner with them.

"We were thrilled to partner with Multipanel for a variety of reasons,” continues Sophie. “Firstly, we were impressed with the quality and vast design choice of their products. We pride ourselves in offering our customers bespoke solutions, so their large range aligns with the customisation element of our offering.” 

Sustainability

As an eco-conscious manufacturer, it was important for Totally Modular to work with a company that upholds sustainability values and for Multipanel, environmental responsibility is a core principle. Bathroom panels in our plywood collections are all Forest Stewardship Council (FSC®) certified (License Code: FSC-C128180) to ensure that the timber we use originates from responsibly managed forests. These wall panels are manufactured in the UK to reduce our carbon footprint and they are also 100% recyclable.

“Furthermore, sustainability is at the heart of everything we do at Totally Modular,” says Sophie. “It is now at the heart of all our processes from how our modular homes are designed, constructed through to the living experience that the residents benefit from. Seeing Multipanel also putting sustainability at the front of their agenda, was important to us when deciding to partner with them.”

 

For this project, Totally Modular selected the following waterproof wall panels:

Jupiter Silver from the Classic Collection with Hydrolock for a watertight and joint free finish, finished around the edges with Anodised Silver Profiles to create a watertight seal.
