Light & white
The brief was for a contemporary space that was light, white and airy while also keeping the budget in mind.
The owners lacked both lightness within the space and natural light – one owner couldn’t even see clearly to put her make up on when getting ready in the mornings.
It pushed us to deliver the best space for our homeowners and to illustrate that you can still create something beautiful on a smaller budget.
White is the most popular bathroom choice for a reason.
Bathrooms tend to be among the smallest rooms in the house, so a light and bright canvas makes the room feel bigger than it is.
White is also often a calming shade, which is what you want when retreating to the space for some much-needed 'me time'.
The resulting white palette has been punctuated with touches of brass and accent lighting.
While the bathroom is not 'all-white', the theme is carried through from the textured wall tiles to the floating reeded vanity and crisp white sink.
When creating a white contemporary bathroom, it is crucial to think about texture.
This bathroom features a Carrara marble vanity top and movement in the Orobico grey honed flooring which stops the room feeling washed out.
Opting for varied Subway wall tiles, laid in an offset stacked pattern, instantly modernised the space.
A frameless glass shower-screen ensures the bathroom retains an open, spacious feel while a floor-to-ceiling window floods the room with light.
When approaching this bathroom design, we decided that the vanity and mirror above need to be the central element to the space with the materials, colours and textures tying back to this so that when the door opens the site lines are attractive when looking in from the bedroom.
