 This 2.1m x 2.4 m. bathroom uses every trick to create light and the illusion of more space:

 

  • Tiles are 600 by 300 size, and laid horizontally
  • Gloss white tiles on 3 walls reflect the light and brighten the room
  • Matte finish feature tiles are an organic pattern in neutral tones
  • Feature tiles are laid on the floor, up the side of the bath and on the main wall
  • Tiled niches above the bath and in the shower create practical, functional, beautiful spaces.

  • 1200mm mirrored cabinets reflect the feature wall, window light, and creates a sense of luxury
  • Inset into the wall - the cabinets extend out only 6cm from the wall

  • The light above the vanity is the perfect functional light.
  •  Downlights above the bath immediately change the mood from functional to very special.

 

  • And only a custom shower screen fitted around the end of the bath could give you the large 1m x 1m shower space requested, plus a built in bath.

  • Double head shower with mixer tap.
  • Behind the scenes: cabinets contain 2 x double “his and hers” powerpoints; double powerpoint on the wall.
  • Behind the tiles wall studs are reinforced above the bath and in the shower to support grab rails in the future.
  • Windows are finished with white gloss tiles meticulously cut and fitted.
