Clear as day: A bathroom makeover

Moody tones meet glass to transform this bathroom into a sophisticated sanctuary
Shania Shegedyn

Architect and interior designer Leon Moulton was enlisted to help transform this stunning Melbourne bathroom from a 1980s shower room into a modern and contemporary space with all the luxuries. Knocking through the adjacent laundry has increased the room’s footprint, allowing the addition of a standout bath, but it is the floor-to-ceiling glass wall beyond that is the showstopper, not only flooding the bathroom with enviable natural light, but providing a pretty outlook onto a high fenced, landscaped atrium, complete with warm merbau cladding and mature plants. It instantly promotes the room from a functional space to a sophisticated and peaceful oasis, with a neat bath filler and wall-hung towel ladder keeping visual noise to a minimum.

Before and after: from tired to terrific

The new space is a far cry from the previous small, rather dated shower room. An expanse of mirror above the vanity reflects the delightful outlook, as well as helping to visually double the space. The graceful circular bowls and minimalist tapware, set on a slick Corian vanity top, combine with French-polished walnut panelling to create a furniture-like look and feel that is enhanced by a pair of Linden wall lights from Beacon Lighting.
