Bathroom Makeover

The Brief

After a major home over haul, my clients left their bathroom for last and asked me for a star studded, hotel style bathroom. The existing bathroom was dated. It comprised of a jacuzzi which dominated the space, a double shower and a single vanity illuminated by one tiny window. The clients wanted a complete bathroom makeover. They asked me to retain the large shower and bath facilities but asked me to add a double vanity.

After many floor plan options, we settled on a floor plan with double windows and a frameless shower against one wall. A double vanity and a feature built-in shelving section would be the focal point as you entered the bathroom. The colour scheme is a combination of white and grey  800 x 800 tiles on the floor and walls and a bespoke mosaic design in strategic places. 

The right accessories made all the difference to this bathroom makeover. White and silver curved shapes fill the feature shelves to compliment the mosaic pattern. An angular mirrored tray set with hotel finishes dominates the Caesar stone vanity complimenting the square basins, taps and sani-ware. Hotel quality grey and white towels fill the square towel rails to complete this bathroom makeover.

I had wanted to use something patterned like wallpaper in the bathroom. For practical reasons, we chose and designed a waterproof mosaic tile detail for this bathroom makeover. This gave the room the detail I wanted whilst offering longevity and practicality. Bespoke tile details give a bathroom a timeless and unique style which is not easily created in these small and often cold spaces. 

By placing the frameless shower and toilet on the far side of this elongated room, we maximised the floor space. This also meant that nothing obscured the natural light from the two new windows. This gave the room the appearance of being much bigger than it is. This feeling of space is heightened by the use of stark white tiles which reflect the extensive artificial light. In addition to down lights, this bathroom also offers overhead lighting above the mirror and recessed lighting in the shelving feature.
