A bathroom with all the appeal of a sunny Queensland day.


renovation ideas

The Queensland motto “Beautiful one day, perfect the next” certainly applies to this stunning bathroom from All Bathroom Gear. Originally situated on the verandah of a 70-year-old Queenslander, the previous two-way bathroom was renovated around 20 years ago but had certainly seen nothing like what the team at All Bathroom Gear has served up.

The room was given a complete makeover from top to toe, with the huge oval spa bath that overpowered the space removed and replaced with more space-saving fixtures.

Thanks to designer Maureen van Roden’s innovative layout, the room is accessible from one door only and now fits a large hob-mounted bath (ideal for tots) and a separate glass frameless shower for mum and dad.

Tiled in glass and marble mosaic, the bath’s hob presents an eye-catching visual and ties in perfectly with the vanity’s sand-coloured Quantum Quartz top.

Natural hues contribute to the room’s casual, beachy atmosphere, while natural light radiating through bi-fold windows above the bathtub works to enhance this feeling.
