In this bathroom design by Rachel Barnes, the benchtop offers plenty of usable space, while the stall has two showers, one in picture.

Refined meets edgy might not sound a winning combination for a young person's bathing space, but in the right designer's hands the result can tell a different story.

The client wanted just this balance, for this chic children's bathroom by designer Rachel Barnes of Ingrid Geldof Design. In addition, the design was to use the best quality finishes, fittings and materials.

A shower with chunky red handle mixer provides a stand-out feature in this bathroom.

"The leading look is industrial with a contemporary pipe showerhead, a chunky red mixer, clean-lined raised mirrors with integrated linear lights, concrete wall tiles and Belgian bluestone floor tiles.," she says.

However, these elements are balanced by the honed marble benchtop and vanity in warm solid oak. The long vanity, with rounded sink, combines softness and convenience, making the space welcoming.

An industrial look is warmed up by soft curves in the detail elements in this childrens bathroom by designer Rachel Barnes. This countertop is in honed marble.

A simple, generous heated towel rail system furthers the industrial slant and at the same time adds to the pampering feel. Underfloor heating, ventilation and a fan heater add to the sense of comfort.

The bathroom offers an easy balance of strong lines and curvaceous elements.
