4. Tub transformation

When this clawfoot bath was first purchased, it was burgundy with gold feet. It was re-imagined by painting the exterior with two coats of oil-based enamel, with shiny silver for the feet.

5. Beautiful and functional

This luxurious freestanding tub, an Ebay find, is conveniently positioned just a few steps from a wide walk-in wardrobe. A wall of mosaic Calacutta tiles from Marble & Ceramic Corp lends a subtle shimmer and contrasts with the matt cabinetry painted in Dulux Domino.
