Designer statement – by Ingrid Geldof

The clients were building a new home with an elegant look, with a natural feel, which also needed to be timeless. ‘Not too flashy or glitzy’ was critical. 

They wanted to incorporate  such as including timber and stone. The houses’ architecture was modern contemporary and they desired warmth and interest, yet retaining a sophisticated feel.

The key things for the bathroom was to have ‘privacy’ in the toilet and shower spaces and a sculptural bath statement. Plus they wanted lit magnifying mirrors and a double vanity with lots of storage.

As well as vanity storage, there is additional space for smaller items behind the mirror, which includes power points for electric toothbrushes.

There was a high window on one side of the bathroom and introducing the dividing walls created the division of spaces for the bidet toilet and the shower. 

The bath was set off by a solid oak slatted wall, providing the warmth and interest the clients wanted.

There was plenty of wall space to accommodate his and hers vanities, and so also provide ample storage. Behind the mirror, hidden cabinets with power outlets inside created additional storage for smaller items and electric toothbrushes.

The Pietra Grey Honed Marble tops worked beautifully with the timber and the Tundra Grey marble floor and wall tiles. These materials choices were used throughout the rest of the home.

Good lighting over the vanity areas, plus the lit magnifying mirror and LED strip under the vanities provided functional and ambient lighting options.
