A fresh layout with an expanded, double-sink vanity, marble-look surfaces and even a new window and frame all contribute to transforming what was an awkward, poorly functioning space into a flowing, light-filled bathroom

From the designer:

The design brief was centred around having a luxurious look and feel throughout. 

There was a lot of discussion with the owner about storage and being able to have a make-up area within the bathroom space which could connect with the walk-in wardrobe area.

It was important to improve the bathroom’s functionality, as it had isolated shower and bath zones. Making the bathroom bright and light was another consideration.

The existing bathroom had a shower tucked in a corner as you entered the room and the bath was not in use.

It was agreed that there was no need to have a bath in this ensuite bathroom as there was a bath in the main bathroom.

The shower was then moved to the end of the bathroom, using a new aluminium casement style window which improved ventilation and created more light.

The windowsill was then tiled which created a seamless appearance and water-resistant protection.

The existing shower area was made larger by decreasing the service stack. This then became the stand-up make up area, with a niche for storage and full-length mirror which is what the homeowner wanted.

The vanity was extended to include two basins, while the colour of the vanity doors and brass handles created an opulent look.

The mirrors were created in an oval shape and separated over the basins. This arrangement allowed more of the elegant marble-look porcelain tiles to be seen.

An in-wall toilet suite was used to provide a more seamless look. Using the same marble-look tile on both the floor and wall, coupled with the new layout, made the bathroom feel larger.
