“Yuck” was the first word that sprang to mind as the homeowners wandered through this bathroom on the Sunshine Coast. Part of a whole-home renovation, the entire property was in disrepair but, perhaps the biggest challenge in the bathroom was that in its prime the décor was so on-trend that almost every element needs to be replaced.
Bringing it into the current decade
With a view to saving where possible, the homeowners resolved to renovate the bathroom where the existing amenities sat and incorporate a laundry into the space.
Wanting to keep everything ‘floating’ and streamlined to enhance the sense of space, they opted for a suspended storage cabinet and wall-solutions where possible.
- Floor tiling was loud, dated and in disrepair - and on the vanity benchtop?!
- The built-in bathtub was worn and too small
- A pokey shower recess was over-engineered and took up too much space
- Daggy wall tiles needed replacing
- Inadequate storage
- Tiny windows gave little natural light and air flow
- New floor tiles 'Vogue' matt finish in Dark Grey, Cooloola Tiles
- A tranquil feel created by a ‘Bette Starlet’ bath from Rogerseller
- Sliding glass door installed floor-to-ceiling to take advantage of the lush outdoors
- Shower replaced by streamlined glass frameless shower (seen in mirror)
- Floating cabinetry in 'Aged Oak' Timber veneer installed alongside a generous mirrored cabinet
- A wall-mounted ‘Catalano C3 70’ washbasin from Rogerseller and a recessed shelf complete the fabulous new functionality
- A ‘Rombi’ stool by Join is the perfect night to keep a towel – or a glass of wine- close at hand while bathing
