Alluring, glamorous and able to be used by both owners at the same time – from these humble brief points has an elegant bathroom grown

Designed by Natalie Du Bois, Du Bois Design

From the designer:

  • This bathroom is the master bedroom ensuite of a 5 bedroom home.
  • The brief was for an alluring and glamorous looking interior.
  • The owner couple wanted a bathroom which would allow them both to use it at the same time.
  • Mirrors were important to them, and they also asked for a full-length mirror to be incorporated somewhere in the space.
  • The previous bathroom lacked storage, so I designed wall to wall drawers below the vanity and higher up cabinetry accessed on the sides – this meant they could still have glamorous looking mirrors without loosing wall storage.

  • They wanted double basins and for the showers to face each other and they also liked the idea of a rain head so a large flush mounted rainhead was designed within the shower area.
  • There are two separate access doors which lead into the shower so they can each access their own side of the shower.
  • The shower waste has been replaced with a double drain with a singular tiled cover – located to suite the plumbing requirements of the existing concrete floor – the owners liked the warmth of the remaining existing timber floor, so this was retained and refinished.
  • The shower floor and benchtops have been made out the same large sheet porcelain to create a continuous look for the space.
  • Extra thought was put towards the specification of the asymmetrical basins and side placement of the mixer taps to ensure more usable space was available when using the basin.
  • The dark navy-stained wire brushed timber veneer cabinetry, dark metal looking tiles, stone walls and timber floor ensure textural layers are achieved.
