A master bathroom with freestanding bath tub
The owner of this townhouse in Strathfield wanted to renovate their ensuite bathroom which had a dated design. The old bathroom had an outdated colour palette with old broken wall tiling and they wanted a complete renovation to give it a more modern look to add value to their property.
They came up with the interior design ideas on their own by using magazines and photos with the ensuite bathroom part of their overall house renovations. They decided to use products from The Bathroom Collective, Reece Plumbing and Beaumont Tiles in Sydney. Nu-Trend was chosen as the renovating contractor to complete this project from demolition of the existing bathroom through to tiling, toilet and vanity installation.
Even though this room was quite small, we helped them tweak the floor plan to create more space and use some clever interior design techniques to make the room feel larger.
The interior design aspects in this ensuite bathroom
The old bathroom already had a shower, toilet and sink but it was in a small cramped space in the townhouse. What we worked on for the interior design was to make sure that when you opened the door you saw the feature piece which was the wall hung vanity unit.
It is so important to choose great products when you are renovating your bathroom and this wasn’t a cheap vanity but look at the impact it creates. It is another good bathroom renovations idea, if you want a high quality you have to invest in the right products to be installed – have a read of some of our tips in our Renovating Advice section.
So the renovating trick we used in this bathroom was to make sure there was nothing bulky used in the room and everything was kept off the floor. Even the layout was arranged so that as you walked in you didn’t see the toilet or shower which was hidden behind the door.
By being able to see the Terrazzo floor tiles all the way to the corners of the room you get an immediate cense of space as your eyes are drawn to the far extremities. With the window providing lots of natural light the white tiles bounce light around the room all day long so it immediately feels fresh.
