Bathroom bliss

The atmosphere of the bathroom, created through the use of various tiles with different tones and textures


“Being an 1890 historic homestead, it was important that the new sections of the residence formed into the original with a seamless transition. The general theme was ‘old meets new’, with hints of modern.


Capturing the overwhelming height of the 11ft (approximately 3.3m) soaring ceilings was imperative. Hotel-style appointments and design were also requested — a look that was achieved with the help of Reece for the bath, basin, shower and tap fixtures. The sheer size of the wall tiles, and laying them the full height, was challenging as mechanical fixing measures were used. This meant the tile adhesive was not totally reliant on the render to hold.

Most of the home’s original historical values have been either maintained or replicated from new. The design allows for open-plan living with well-oriented windows to provide an open and airy feeling. You could almost describe this residence as an ultra-modern 1890s homestead.”

Sleek, clean lines and a functional layout are the hallmarks of this winning bathroom renovation.



renovation ideas 

The final straw came for these homeowners when their old bathroom plumbing began to leak into the floor below. Faced with a debilitated bathroom, they knew it was time to renovate and enlisted the services of Perini Bathrooms to create a clean and modern bathroom.
The bathroom was much like the rest of the house, in need of modernising and refreshing. Originally an outdated, garishly coloured room, the owners were very keen to completely renovate it, not just for practical purposes, but to create an aesthetically pleasing space. Set in a lovely old Victorian house, the client wanted to update the bathroom and make it contemporary, impressive and stylish, yet still in keeping with the original home’s elegance.

Having lived with a run-down bathroom, they knew exactly what they wanted from their new bathroom — a large vanity, plenty of storage, twin basins, a large shower and an even larger bath.

The challenge was to fit all this into the relatively tight space. With a carefully planned design and a custom-made vanity unit from Perini Bathrooms, the obstacle of limited space was overcome. For added comfort, a heated towel ladder and under-tile floor heating were also installed into the new bathroom.

To make room for the new design, the laundry was relocated into a walkway cupboard, while the original separate toilet was combined in the bathroom. Now the owners enjoy their bathroom, not just as a functional room, but also as a stylish addition to the house and an elegant room to retreat to.
