A wall to wall marble finish runs across the vanity too in this luxurious powder room while deft moves negate penthouse limitations

Designed by Kerrie Richardson, Lux Interiors

From the designer:

Design brief:

Our penthouse clients required a lavish powder room for their guests to use.

Homeowner’s requests:

  • Lavish design to suit the penthouse atmosphere
  • A room for guests to use
  • Hidden storage of toilet rolls and cleaning products
  • Sleek, modern design
  • Minimal grout
  • Keep the existing linen cupboard but make it less obvious

Existing challenges:

  • Being a penthouse level, moving plumbing was restrictive
  • Transporting large format porcelain panels into the apartment
  • Creating a linen door with a panel front
  • Concealing the cistern
  • Creating a sleek vanity incorporating panels with a built-in basin

Design statement:

This lavish powder room features stunning, marbled large format porcelain panels that radiate a sense of opulence throughout the room.

The panels flow throughout the room creating a seamless finish.

Also, using porcelain panels for the custom designed vanity continues the seamless marble look from the drawer fronts through to the benchtop and integrated basin.

Being a penthouse apartment, moving plumbing was tricky and as a result we could not chase the basin waste pipe into the wall.

To give the illusion of a floating vanity, while concealing the drain, the design includes a mirrored recessed kicker. This kicker ties in with the full-length circular, bespoke mirror above the vanity.

In order to allow for a concealed in wall cistern, a stud wall was built in front of the existing wall.

As an added element of decadency, luminous strip lighting was included on either side, making this wall a feature. 

To conceal the linen cupboard, the new design continues the panels onto the linen door. Due to the sheer weight of the door, the design specified heavy duty hinges, making sure all safety regulations were met.
