Bathroom inspiration: Elegant transformation

A blend of heritage and modern, this striking bathroom renovation combines style and functionality
Marcel Aucar

Built in the late 1880s, the house had been neglected and was nothing more than a run-down shell before homeowners bought it and saved it from a wrecking ball. Paying respect to its history, vintage pieces were used in a modern design to create a perfect family space. This spacious bathroom’s glamorous visage belies its function as the only bathing zone for a busy family of five. It comes complete with twin butler-style basins from Builders Renovators Warehouse, a large double shower and a traditional claw-foot bath from Richmond Second Hand Building Materials. 


As the only bathroom in the house, it also doubles as homeowners tranquil spa retreat, with luxurious marble countertops, elegant wood-panelled joinery and a delicate chandelier from Mirabella. Ornate silver framed mirrors from Print Decor are paired with Bastow taps and chic plantation shutters. A white timber towel ladder from Recollections is a stylish alternative to a standard rail.
