Centre of attention

Prior to renovation by EJ Building, this ensuite had the classic shower-over-the-bath scenario. What a difference a fresh design makes!

The EJ Building renovation places the shower in architecture, bathroom, bathroom accessory, bathtub, building, ceiling, estate, floor, flooring, furniture, glass, home, house, interior design, material property, plumbing fixture, property, real estate, room, tap, tile, wall, gray

From EJ Building:

The original bathroom in this house had a bath with a shower over it. However, the homeowners weren’t happy having to climb into the bath on a daily basis. Their main requirement was to have a stand-alone tiled shower.

For a renovation – rather than a new build or extension – it is always more challenging, as the room size has already been determined by a previous designer. This can be more restrictive both when it comes to designing the bathroom layout and selecting the bathroomware.

And indeed, this bathroom renovation was quite a challenge from a design point of view. Normally showers are in positioned the corner of the room, but to optimise the lay-out in this bathroom we needed to install a three sided frameless glass shower in the centre of the bathroom.

Given that the room wasn’t overly large we also opted for a wall-hung vanity and a large mirror, both giving the illusion of increased space. 

As the owners were living in the house it was very important to them to have a functional bathroom to use as soon as possible. The team was able to get in and renovate the bathroom start to finish in just three weeks.
