The bathroom strikes a perfect balance between a traditional aesthetic and the needs of a busy family with two children under three.

From the designers:

For a young family, the bathroom needed to be spatially fit for multiple people using it at once. Cleaning teeth time needed to be considered and a bath was an essential.

The vision was to combine traditional aesthetics with a modern pop of colour and pattern that can be switched out as the family grows over the years.

At the top of the bathroom walls, the La Palma wallpaper, by Catherine Martin, is the striking feature that sits above the two metre line of the classic glossy subway tiles from European Ceramics.

Perrin & Rowe tapware and accessories play a timeless role in the space with the chrome finish future proofing the family bathroom.

The glass shower stall adds to the room's
The glass shower stall adds to the room's sense of space while the subway tile that continues into the stall is both classic and extremely durable – more than a match for family life.

Neatly tucked away behind a sliding door is the laundry, utilising the unused space under the stairs.

This is the main bathroom in the house. With two kids under 3 years of age, the ritual of bath time plays a huge part day to day.

The room is often bursting with engagement as family use it from morning showers, to night time baths and of course toilet training the little ones.

The mirror cabinets are recessed to hide any bathroom necessities and were custom made with a chrome frame to match the tapware.
