No room for the bath in the bathroom? A minus becomes a glorious plus in this master suite where the tub is given pride of place in the bedroom

Designed by Elliot Johnson, E J Building

From the registered designer:

Owner requests

  • The homeowners wanted this bathroom to match the other bathrooms that were being renovated in the house.
  • They requested his and hers areas in the bathroom. 
  • Plus, they wanted something a little bit different so were keen on the idea of having a bath in the bedroom as there wasn’t enough space in the ensuite.

What we achieved

  • Brown tones were used for the tiles and vanity, creating an earthy theme that connected the bathroom with both the other bathrooms and the forest area outside.
  • A large composite marble stone was placed in the bedroom with a chandelier above for a wow factor!
  • His and hers sinks were again used with the copper tapware, which stood out nicely against the brown tiles

Issues encountered

  • Access to the property was an issue and all of the tools and bathroomware had to be transported to the property in smaller vehicles that could fit down the drive.
  • The bath weighed more than 200kg and so it was a challenge to get it upstairs without causing any damage to the bath – or the staff!
