“The previous bathroom was very old and dated. Irregular shaped walls, a low ceiling and the exposed hot water system made the room appear cramped. The homeowners wanted Designline to create a bathroom that utilised the space to its potential and that let in more natural light.
They also wanted an in-wall toilet cistern, a larger shower, a relocated hot water system and a new design that accounted for the age of the house while also providing a contemporary feel. To achieve this brief, we included skylights in the design to improve lighting and open up the space. The hot water system was removed to allow extra room, and the irregular walls were relined to simplify the area. The ceiling was raised to match the hallway’s more expansive dimensions, maintaining the smooth lines from the hallway to the bathroom. The spacious shower and carefully chosen black hardware create a contemporary twist in the bathroom and the frameless shower screen allows for an uninterrupted flow. The original timber doors open to a Juliet balcony facing a private garden — a quiet haven. The cast-iron claw-foot bath was restored to its original glory and colour coded to match the new bathroom design, an elegant blend of traditional and contemporary.”

EXPERT TIP: Natural light can have a significant impact on the ambience of a room.
We love the textured look of the solid timber vanity.
