A Sydney ensuite bathroom renovation with a kit kat mosaic tile feature
Ensuite bathroom with barn door entry and cute kit kat mosaic wall tile feature
We renovating this ensuite bathroom in Woronora in the Sutherland Shire in Sydney using a few clever bathroom design elements to give it some character. The owners wanted to use the existing walls, floorplan and window but we demolished the room to add a barn yard style entry door, new tiling, shower, toilet, vanity & stylish kit kat mosaic bathroom wall tile feature.
This was a complete ensuite bathroom renovation, we removed all the old wall and floor tiling, toilet system and vanity unit and completely demolished the old room to start again. This bathroom was about 3m x 3m and we made it feel even more spacious, bright and fresh by using clever interior design techniques like the wall hung vanity unit, custom made glass shower screen, wall niche in the walk in shower and slim wall mirror on top of the vanity. The existing window and glass brick wall was retained to keep plenty of light flowing into the room.

What are kit kat mosaic bathroom tiles?
Kit kat style mosaic bathroom tiles are very thin, yet they can help you present a remarkably strong design profile in a bathroom, laundry or kitchen renovation if they are used correctly. By using kit-kat tiles for your interior design you can elevate a bathrooms, kitchens and commercial project into an extraordinary work of art.
Kit kat, or finger mosaic tiles, are great to use for a small shower niches, a feature wall or other spaces in a room to create a visual centre piece. Kit kat tiles are renowned for their long and thin appearance which can easily add visual interest without being overpowering. So for this ensuite bathroom renovation we completed they became the perfect choice to add some interest into the room giving it a touch of personality to compliment the barn door entry.

We also worked closely with the property owner to come up with clever ways to maximise the feeling of space in the bathroom and to create a very clutter-free feeling as soon as you walk into the room. We helped design these elements to achieve this;
- Custom made glass shower screen; the frameless design reduces the visual clutter and is custom made to suit the room vs pre-made fixed shape designs. There are no clumsy tracks or messy frames required just a single sheet of glass that is easy to clean and very safe to use.
- Wall hung vanity ‘floating’ unit; this reduces the bulk sitting on the floor and allows your eye to see the floor tiles.
- Custom made shower drain; created using a matching floor tile it blends into the floor and you hardly notice it.
- Slimline vanity mirror
