Versatile design and quality craftsmanship prove a winning combination
The owners desired a more user-friendly space but were not willing to forgo luxuries such as the large double basin.
The challenge for designers Maureen and Henri van Roden and the All Bathroom Gear team was to create a workable design that satisfied all the owners’ requirements.
Henri and Maureen replaced the bulky double basin with separate his-and-hers vanity units and a deep drawer storage unit was fitted for towels and all the other bathroom necessities.
A huge hob-mounted spa that previously obstructed access to the large picture window was removed to open up the space and to give it a more light and airy atmosphere.
As the room now has more room to move in, the owners can get ready for work at the same time without getting in each other’s way.
Maureen hand-selected a range of brightly coloured finishes and textures for added pizzazz, with niches to the shower and above the storage cupboard providing much visual interest.
From the large, frameless glass shower to the soft-touch drawers without handles, every last detail of this bathroom has been carefully considered.
The result is this stylish yet ultra-functional design that the owners can enjoy — together.
