Main bathroom, North Ryde
The challenge of this compact 2 x 2.6m main bathroom was to fit in a full length bath and free standing shower, a toilet, basin and storage. The design of the shower was such, that when not in use, its floorspace served as free floorspace in front of the bath and wall mounted basin. The shower screen has a hinged panel which folds back completely on itself when not in use. Ample storage and electrical powerpoints are concealed in the mirrored recessed shaving cabinet, and wall hung joinery. To create the illusion of greater floorspace, the floor tile continued up the wall. A large frosted window lets in ample light bouncing of the slightly rippled white tiles, creating a soft soothing ambiance in the bathroom.
Main bathroom, Potts Point
An original small and compact bathroom of an apartment in Potts Point was to be gutted, re-fitted and finished. The client wanted a rich and sumptuous look, without it feeling dark and dingy. Budgetary constraints dictated plumbing to remain where it was. A frameless corner shower with light bathroom floor tiles flowing all the way through, made the space look larger. A prefabricated Kado Lux wall hung vanity basin and mirrored shaving cabinet provided storage and space. Glistening and reflective surfaces bounce light around.
Construction drawings and a Finishes and Fittings Schedule were provided to the client who project managed the bathroom renovation with her own builder.
Accessible toilets – left and right hand transfer
Importantly, circulation to and from the toilet and basin must always be a priority. Wanting to give it a less utilitarian appearance, and a more lux and stylish feel, special attention was given to the proposal of elegant and durable finishes and fittings. Laminex wall panelling, textured floor tiles and movement sensor light and tap fittings all contribute to safe and effortless use of the facilities.
