The end result is serene and seems more expansive, but a lot of reorganisation and custom detail went into creating this master ensuite retreat

From the designer:

Our homeowners wanted a relaxing sanctuary with a large vanity and larger shower, without any extension works. 

To deliver on this, our design needed to make the room feel larger than it actually was and utilise the full space.

Previously, this ensuite had a single vanity which finished with a nib wall before the shower screen. 

The shower tapware was placed on the back wall next to the window with a shower screen door enclosing the space. 

This room had a second entry door that was never used which went out to the hallway where you could enter the separate powder room.

We removed the redundant door and bricked it up. 

We then replaced the primary door with a barn slider which allowed room for a toilet to be added to the ensuite. 

The custom-made double vanity remained in the same position with plenty of storage and bench space. 

We recommended a taller second drawer to store the taller bathroom items, while the top drawer can store the smaller items.

In the shower, we removed the nib wall and changed the position of the dual shower head to the same wall as the vanity and created an open shower.

We recommended an Onyx-look tile on the floor and wall, with a chevron feature on the vanity wall. 

This adds a beautiful subtle detail that makes the vanity stand out with its V Groove panels and pops of pink in the Nood basins and mirrors. 

The Abey brass tapware adds an elegance to the room and pairs perfectly with the coastal barn theme.

The window was replaced with a full pane, which lets in a tremendous amount of light. 

This makes the room feel larger and brighter, completely changing the feel of the room.
