From the designer:

My clients asked me to redesign and renovate their ensuite in their architectural home in a creative way that expressed their unique taste incorporating their favourite colour, blue.

Their immediate concerns were the existing leaking toilet and the timeworn vanity. The existing plan was redesigned as the clients needed extra storage and a larger shower.

The bathroom door prohibited increasing the shower size because of the position of the exisiting heated towel rail. By reversing the opening of the door, I gained more space to enlarge the shower and reposition the heated towel rails.

The leaky toilet was replaced with all new fixtures.

Utilising the full width of the room for the vanity enabled me to design the bathroom furniture with two functional spaces; the washing area and storage area. The granite ledge running below merges the two areas.

To give maximum impact, the wall to wall ledge and vanity top were specified in a striking granite, Azul Bahia, creating something sculptural that spoke to the clients individuality. The deep ink blue cabinetry co-ordinates with the granite and adds to the drama of the space.

The wall-to-wall ledge and vanity top were specified in a striking granite, Azul Bahia, which coordinates with the deep ink blue cabinetry and adds to the drama of the space.

For all other surfaces, I specified large beige format tiles, for easy maintenance. This created a neutral canvas for the dark blue vanity focal point.

The vanity was further enhanced with an oversized round LED mirror, which provided a departure from the square shapes within the room.

To accent the ensuite, feature strip lights were recessed under the granite ledge. These washed the floor with a warm light.

The LED in the bulkhead above created a ray of light that enhanced the textures and finishes in the room.

The clients were thrilled with the final result.

The bathroom became an extension of their passion for art and design, while providing a functional space that fit all of their needs.
