Spoil yourself with a blissful bathroom
Armed with a brief to transform a poorly designed area into a lush spa-style haven, John Spiteri from Brindabella Bathrooms knew that he had a big job on his hands. But, with the help of his team, John has totally transformed the space and the owners couldn’t be happier.
To create the illusion of more depth and width, the bathroom area was completely redesigned to ensure space was used as efficiently as possible. As part of this new design, a curved wall was reconfigured to create a straight parallel wall; the new surface provided the perfect space to fix a wall-mounted vanity. To offer more privacy, an existing window was also replaced and raised to accommodate a new, stylish spa bath.
Featuring stunning products such as an Aqva Helsingor freestanding oval spa bath and a custom-made frameless shower screen, the bathroom certainly has the look of an ultra-exclusive day spa. A handcrafted double vanity also adds an extra touch of old-time glamour and lavishness to the space.
Visual harmony is an important ingredient in creating a soothing and welcoming ambience. Here, the open-plan area combined with an elegant neutral colour scheme and an abundance of natural light, transforms the bathroom into a space that is wonderfully luxurious and inviting.
A blissful bathroom such as this one is the perfect place to relax after a long day’s work!
