Check out the latest in bathroom, suite and powder room design from top designers – the finalists in TIDA New Zealand Bathroom awards

The existing ensuite layout was redesigned so a long narrow section, previously housing the toilet is now a generous walk-in shower. Drawers in the double vanity and an open shelving unit provide great storage, with extra storage behind the two mirror cabinets

Warm dark, colours match the ambience throughout this home. The bathroom is designed for a stylish, luxurious lifestyle but, more importantly, to be comfortable and easy to use. 

The innovative use of an aged brass chain curtain to separate the shower from the toilet/vanity area, allows this room to function as a secondary bathroom, while still retaining the dramatic impact that a powder room design should have.

This ensuite design ensures two people can use it at the same time without getting in each other’s way, with the twin sink vanity also having the added benefit of extra storage. Introducing a skyligh...

A glamorous space that reflects the rest of the house by integrating antique furniture and bringing opulence to an everyday room.

Modern and moody, this ensuite is a sanctuary where the homeowners can retreat and relax. The 4.7m vanity wall extends to a skylight and is clad in mosaic tile to create the ‘wow’ factor on entering the space.  

As it was visible from the kitchen / living room area, this bathroom renovation need to establish flow and be visually appealing. The addition of a skylight optimises natural light and enhances the vanity's warm tones.

This main bathroom in a renovated 1912 villa incorporates classic touches with an original contemporary feel, all within a modest floor area.

The design of this crisp and clean-lined ensuite has resulted in a practical 'his & her' space with a commitment to originality. The predominant colour choice in moody charcoal enhances the luxe vibe.

Designed for a home to be marketed to a potential buyers, this bathroom needed to be elegant with an earthy feel, but not too glitzy a design. The style was to be warm and to fit with the moody feel developed for the rest of the home. 

Designed to be a show-stopping space, it was also imperative that this powder room's design was clean-lined and made sophisticated reference to the architectural context of its surroundings.

In a transitional villa renovation, a fifth bedroom was used to enlarge the main bathroom and add a new ensuite and walk-in wardrobe. The ensuite’s design is a fresh approach to creating a luxurious bathroom with both classic and modern features.

The material palette and selection of fittings were guided by the natural tones, earthy textures, brushed metals, and strong forms in the rest of this home's interiors. The result is a balance of a contemporary design approach with timeless elements.

A small partition wall between the shower and the vanity provided extra storage so that the vanity surface could be free of clutter, keeping the focus on the bathroom's bold design features.

Doing away with the bath that was on an existing plan allowed the designer to create a spacious guest bathroom filled with natural light and a sense of flair.

A limited colour palette of blue, white and chrome for this general bathroom was inspired by the colours of the ocean and sky seen from the bathroom. Expanses of blue rippled wall tiles reflect the colour and movement of the water.

This large ensuite is essentially ‘his and her’ bathrooms with a large double shower in between. The material selection creates a dark and moody atmosphere, while meeting the owners’ request of a modern design approach with a sense of elegance.

Relocating the door into this powder room gave privacy from the living areas and allowed a generous size basin to be installed – which doubles as designer dog bath for the owners' two small Pomerians.

The dark coloured walls in this powder room tie in with other rooms in the home, while the onyx top and glass faceted basin provide a distinctive focus for the space.

Two walls in this family bathroom were lined in matte Rosa tile, adding a very tailored and structured level of detail. The colour is picked up by chips in the terrazzo floor, while the other two white tiled walls are simple and understated.

Lighting was the key to achieving a moody ambience in this ensuite bathroom. The existing window was fitted with reeded glass for privacy and also to tie in with similar features throughout the renovated villa.

A custom-made timber clad veneer wall acts as a natural backdrop and  a solid juxtaposition for the feature vanity bowl, positioned as an art piece in this dual purpose powder room and guest ensuite. 

For this bathroom renovation in a 1920s home, a change of layout allowed the inclusion of a larger, double shower zone. The copper tapware and floor tiles givet he  bathroom an aged feeling to help connect it with the rest of the house

To create an open spacious feel, this bathroom has a wet room layout, with the floor sunk to allow level entry to the bath/shower area. The charcoal coloured concrete bath tub provided the starting point for the material selection.
