From the bathroom designer:

Our design objective was to transform an existing, dark, and dated ensuite into a vibrant space connected to the teenage boy's bedroom, while addressing the recurring issues of mould and dampness.

The initial challenge was the placement of the shower against the window, which caused poor ventilation and resulted in mould problems.

To rectify this, we made the strategic decision to relocate the shower to an area that would allow for better airflow and prevent future issues with mould near the window.

To create a visually appealing and calming environment, we incorporated a palette of beautiful blue hues in the selection of tiles. 

These colours were carefully chosen to create a sense of tranquillity and serenity, transforming the ensuite into a space that promotes relaxation and well-being.

In addition to aesthetic considerations, we also prioritised functionality and storage. 

Understanding the owner's need for better organisation and usage, we implemented smart storage solutions within the vanity and the round mirror cabinet. 

We also created a low wall in the shower to allow for shampoo and accessories to be neatly stored in reach of hand.

This ensures that the space not only looks visually pleasing but also serves its purpose efficiently – providing ample storage for the teenage boy's personal belongings.

Overall, our design solution successfully addresses the owner's brief by creating a vibrant ensuite that seamlessly connects to the adjacent bedroom.

By repositioning the shower for improved ventilation, utilising calming blue hues, and incorporating thoughtful storage solutions, we have transformed the ensuite into a functional and aesthetically pleasing space that enhances the overall experience for the teenage boy.
