This bathroom has been modernised with the odd classic feature retained – now improved space, lighting and function hold sway

Designed by Hub Design

From the designers:

The home is over 20 years old and was in much need of a face lift.

My homeowner often has 3-4 children in the home so the bathroom needed to be able to cater for more than one person.

The bathroom had an 80s style corner bath, timber ceilings and architraves that had been water damaged that he was also keen to keep.

We removed the corner bath, replacing it with a stylish free standing bath to the back wall, making this a feature with the textured tile and a recess with LED strip lighting that gives the bathroom a soft and natural feel while also being functional.

The vanity was made longer and with two basins to provide plenty of room for children to share the hand washing and teeth cleaning duties.  

We also made this a subtle soft grey to complement the shadowing in the tiles.

We made the shower as wide as possible to give more head space, taking into account the sloping ceiling, and enclosed it with glass to keep the water within this area.  

This space was finished off with a beautiful rainhead and rose option for showering.

All tapware was supplied in brushed brass to complement and lift the beautiful ancient travertine tiles.

We took out the large cumbersome fan and lights, repairing the ceiling hole and bevelled architraves with new timber and matching the stain.

The new lighting was positioned to ensure good light over the mirrors and shower area. 

We also added a 2nd switch that allows a lovely soft mood lighting for restful nighttime showering or bathing.

The new bathroom flows beautifully with the age of the house in a timeless sophisticated style.
