An abundance of natural light, a sense of space and a harmonising theme are just three features of this rejuvenating bathroom makeover

Designed by Kyle McGregor, Lux Interiors

From the professional designer:

Design brief :

Our homeowners came to us wanting a practical bathroom layout with lots of natural light.

Owner requests:

  • Lots of natural light
  • A contemporary style to match their recently renovated ensuite
  • A unique design feature
  • Hidden storage
  • Incorporating a toilet within the room with privacy to the toilet

Existing challenges:

  • The existing layout only had one small window for natural light
  • Creating privacy for the toilet without enclosing the toilet area
  • Incorporating storage in the shower and for the vanity without being intrusive

Design statement:

This bathroom bathes in natural light with the inclusion of a custom round skylight covering a large expanse of the room.

The high ceiling and unique curved skylight feature together create a spacious feeling, transforming what was once a tight, enclosed space.

The continuation of round elements is found throughout the design.

A unique custom curved wall creates a divider between the shower and toilet for a non-invasive division of space. 

With the tiled curved wall starting at 2550mm and raking down to 2000mm, an organic curve is created.

In the shower, an oblong wall recess provides a form of shower storage.

The shape of the niche has been replicated in the form of a mirror above the basin. Below the basin sits a tapered benchtop with round pedestal base.

Strip lighting around the circumference of the base is illuminated to create an ethereal effect.

All specified fittings such as the tapware, basin, robe hooks and cabinet handles are round in shape to match.

A large mirrored cabinet opens up the room, making it feel larger that it is.

Large format porcelain panels have been used on the walls and floors for a minimal grout look.
