Ever wanted to step into your bathroom and be transported to paradise? Anything is possible when great design is at hand.
It’s fair to say that this space will wow all who enter. The owners were specific with their needs; they wanted to create a bathroom that was not only magnificent but also gave them a sense of paradise. It is hard to imagine that this area was once a muddle of clutter and 70s-style fixtures, including a sage-green spa!
The transformation is one of pure comfort and elegance. Installing large marble basins on the vanity area enhances the room’s indulgent appeal and also allows the space to connect with the outdoor design.
The vast shower area is cleverly tucked away behind glass. Being completely enclosed with a frameless screen and pivot door means less mess and more shower area. The shower area and large window also frame the courtyard, so it was important the room flowed with the general feel of the outdoors. Contrast tiling on the walls and floor gives a sense of space while the use of darker coloured feature tiles grounds the bathroom. Floor-to-ceiling tiles are not only easy to clean and extremely functional but also provide the modern, sleek aspect that makes this bathroom stand out.
Simple and stunning design aspects, including the stone feature splitting the two mirrors, complement the overall feel of the room. The mirrors also double as storage, meaning all those pesky bathroom knick-knacks can now be put away with ease. The large drawers and cupboards allow for ample storage of larger items and the contrasting brown-and-white cabinetry enhances the marble basins and rapture of the area.
