Bathroom design: Recycle with style
Universal Magazines

A new bathroom design that mixes its past and present perfectly, with recycled timber and clean glossy whites

“This project features 100-year-old reclaimed timber tiles from the Renaza (Spanish for “reborn”) timber tile range. The tiles were specifically designed as the visual feature of both the main bathroom and adjacent powder room in a large apartment, which used to house a lolly factory in Sydney’s inner west.

My brief was to modernise the bathroom but stay in keeping with the history of the building, which featured heavy structures and an industrial feel. I countered the warmth and textural quality of the tiles with softly rounded wall-hung and floor-standing basins in a bright white.

Some of the challenges I faced included designing around a structural pier and creating as much storage space as possible. To manage both these requirements, a flat mirror was applied behind the basin to the structural pier then matched with a recessed, mirrored cabinet to the right.

A niche wall, featuring the timber tile, provides additional set-down space. The owners love this bathroom as it is the perfect mix of historic and modern elements.”
