Bathroom Renovation Williamstown

As part of a more extensive renovation including the reassignment of the ensuite and WIR of the main bedroom to the existing main bathroom, this beautiful period home needed to find a new place for the bathroom. One of the many bedrooms was the perfect, well-lit space for the task.

The client requested a separate WC, a large vanity, plenty of storage and good lighting, a large walk in shower and a large bath. The desire was for a modern and elegant space whilst still complementing the period of the front of the house.

The palette for the bathroom was tackled first. In order to keep within the parameters of modern elegance with a period feel, we selected marble-look tiles, warm greys and brass fixtures. The rest of the house features warm whites and timber floors, so the goal was to ensure that that the bathroom also created the feeling of warmth.

The WC was separated from the bathroom and a new basin added, which now allows the main bathroom to be used concurrently. Due to the reconfiguration of numerous rooms as part of the second part of the project, we were able to reuse doors, creating more seamless transitions.

Whilst an almost square room was a challenge, having to only place 3 main fixtures within the space naturally lead to one configuration, within which each fixture could be of a generous size. We could also have the bath nestled beneath both windows, and as the feature of the bathroom – the first thing you see upon entering.

An LED strip light was incorporated within a minimal pelmet above the shaving cabinet to provide better task lighting and the warm timber look of the vanity cabinet brings warmth and depth to the space anchoring the brass finish of the fittings and the brass trim which separates the soft grey floor tile and the elegant marble tile.
