Chrysalis Modershall Oak Case Study

Case Study: Chrysalis Refurbished Moddershall Oaks Guest Bedrooms In Just Two Weeks

Chrysalis teamed up with the beautiful Moddershall Oaks Country Spa Retreat, creating a striking new look for their luxury bedrooms while adhering to a very strict timescale.

The Brief

Moddershall Oaks is a beautiful spa and wedding venue situated near Stone, Staffordshire. As a host to various events, weddings and a wide array of spa treatments, this country spa retreat is the epitome of luxury.

Described as a spa with bedrooms, as opposed to the traditional ‘hotel with spa’, this unique establishment needed a refresh to create consistency between their public areas and their guest bedrooms. The team at Chrysalis were happy to oblige.

The brief was to update the ground floor bedrooms to closely reflect the existing areas of the spa, creating a serene aesthetic throughout. Strongly influenced by the surrounding rural location, inspiration from the neighbouring woodland is reflected throughout the spa and the choice of beautiful heritage colours achieves this ambience perfectly. The client’s brief for the bedrooms was to create a fresh feel, with a bright and airy interior in keeping with the rest of the spa -with the tight timescale of just two weeks. It was paramount that deadlines were met for the client due to existing guest bookings.

How Chrysalis Transformed Moddershall Oaks

Chrysalis’s full fit out service was implemented to ensure the spa’s vision was achieved. The transformation was carried out with ease due to the Chrysalis design, project management, and installation service including soft furnishings, lighting and electrics. Chrysalis transformed the bedrooms from overly warm, slightly dark rooms to a light, natural, tranquil space by painting out the dark woodwork in fresh white, and adding a splash of modern design with clean-lined contemporary furniture. The chosen colour scheme of soft natural earthy tones met the brief perfectly. Casegoods for the luxury bedrooms were provided by Furnotel; hotel bedroom furniture designers and manufacturers, while the loose hotel furniture was provided by Lugo; both of which are sister companies to Chrysalis.

Challenges Faced

Although working to such a restrictive timescale led to some challenges, Chrysalis was able to overcome any issues with a strict project plan.

With this type of fast-track fit-out, there are often unforeseeable obstacles that can put contractors behind schedule. On this occasion, the Chrysalis site team discovered that the wooden under-flooring used in some of the bathrooms wasn’t appropriate for the damp conditions and had therefore become completely rotten over time, resulting in significant adjustments to the project scope.

Chrysalis removed the affected flooring and replaced it with the appropriate under-flooring, which would happily withstand the damp, causing no problems in the future whilst still managing to adhere to the pressing project deadline. Chrysalis ensured that the project remained on schedule, working through the night to guarantee the delivery of work for the client. An Amtico wood effect flooring plank was then laid upon the floor to complete the stylish scheme in the bathrooms.

The Finished Product

Chrysalis delivered the project, on brief within the two-week turnaround, approaching and managing challenges head on along the way, providing an accurate representation of what was required during the brief.

Moddershall Oaks’ luxury spa bedrooms have now been refreshed, allowing for not only a more relaxing experience for guests, but for the client’s vision to flow through all aspects of their establishment.
