The client’s bathroom showed clear signs of aging, particularly evident in the worn-out vanity panels and outdated shower design. Terry expressed a desire for a more spacious and contemporary bathroom.

To modernize the overall look, we proposed the use of full tiles, offering a sleek and contemporary style that would transform the bathroom’s appearance. Terry sought a more efficient toilet system, which we integrated into our renovation plans to enhance the bathroom’s performance and convenience.

Addressing the issue of inadequate ventilation, we recommended the installation of a robust ventilation system to effectively remove excess moisture from the wet areas, promoting a cleaner and healthier environment.

Taking into account the initial condition of the bathroom and the client’s specific requirements, our renovation project was tailored to address these concerns while delivering a functional and visually appealing space that perfectly aligned with Terry’s needs and preferences.

Overall look & feel

The renovated bathroom exuded a refined elegance and timeless sophistication, achieved through meticulous attention to detail. Our design approach focused on striking a balance between practical and visually stunning.

Storage optimisation was a key consideration in the renovation, with carefully chosen elements not only offered ample storage solutions but also exuded an inviting and luxurious ambiance.

By thoughtfully selecting fixtures, fittings, and appliances, we were able to seamlessly blend style, practicality, and luxury in the renovated bathroom. Each element harmonised with the overall design scheme, enhancing the space’s aesthetic appeal while ensuring optimal functionality for everyday use.

In the shower area, safety and style were seamlessly integrated with the installation of a 10mm thick tempered retaining glass for the pull-out door. This premium glass not only ensured durability but also added a sleek and contemporary touch to the space. With a generous size of 1m x 1m, the shower area provided ample room for a comfortable showering experience.

Efficient drainage was guaranteed with the incorporation of the AllProof shower drain system from Reece Plumbing. Designed to effectively collect and remove water, this system prevents any potential accumulation, maintaining a clean and hygienic environment. Additionally, Technokolla waterproofing products were applied to create a robust and water-resistant foundation, safeguarding against moisture damage and ensuring long-lasting performance.

The walls featured a captivating juxtaposition of light and dark tones in marble looking to achieved with Marmo 300 X 600 wall tiles from Tile Depot. These tiles boasted a distinctive stone-like character with a soft linear grain, adding depth and visual intrigue to the space. With an R10 anti-slip rating, they not only enhanced the aesthetic appeal but also prioritized safety.

For the bathroom floor, Cashmere Oyster Micorotee 600 X 600 tiles from Tile Depot were selected to create a luxurious and indulgent atmosphere. Their smooth polished finish exuded sophistication, elevating the overall ambiance of the space.

To tie everything together, Resene Alabaster interior paint was chosen to provide a clean and sophisticated backdrop. 

Bathroom Vanity & Storage

To optimize storage space, we integrated a 900mm freestanding vanity into the design, opting for the stylish Nora Oak model from Renoarts. This vanity not only offered ample storage but also added a touch of sophistication to the space. With its three drawers and cabinet below, it promoted efficient organization and accessibility, ensuring a clutter-free environment. The Nora Oak vanity blended seamlessly with the overall aesthetic, radiating elegance and modernity.

For added luxury and practicality, we installed the Heirloom, an 800mm x 600mm heated towel rail. 

To elevate the ambiance and functionality of the bathroom further, we incorporated the Broadway LED mirror, spanning 900mm. Its auto-demist function ensured a clear reflection even in steamy conditions, enhancing convenience and usability.

Bathroom Fittings & Fixtures

We meticulously curated each element to ensure a harmonious blend of style, functionality, and convenience.

To infuse the bathroom with a warm and inviting ambiance, we integrated Phillip LED energy-efficient downlights. 

To achieve a clean and sophisticated backdrop, we opted for Resene Alabaster interior painting. This versatile shade served as the perfect canvas, adding a touch of elegance while allowing the architectural features and fittings to shine.

The tapware selection from the Engelfield Duo II series was chosen for its impeccable craftsmanship and timeless design. 

In prioritizing hygiene and ease of maintenance, we selected the Engelfield Evora II back-to-wall Rimless toilet from Reece. This innovative design streamlined the cleaning process and also ensured a more hygienic experience for users.

To enhance comfort and convenience, the bathroom featured a multifunctional 3-in-1 heater that combined lighting, heating, and ventilation functionalities. On top of that, an independent extract fan was installed to meet ventilation requirements, catering to both residential and potential rental needs with efficiency and effectiveness.

Overall outcome

The culmination of the bathroom renovation project has yielded an exceptional transformation, leaving the client satisfied with the outcome. 

A significant improvement lies in the augmented sense of spaciousness. The room now exuded a greater sense of openness, with expanded areas around the vanity and shower space. This enhancement not only enhanced functionality but also fostered an airier and more welcoming environment.

The utilisation of full wall tiles in the bathroom had proven to be a masterstroke, infusing the space with an added layer of elegance while simplifying maintenance. The seamless integration of tiles created a visually cohesive and streamlined aesthetic throughout the room.

The ensuite had seen its fair share of use over the years, leading to visible signs of ageing. Since we had already renovated the main bathroom and toilet, Irina wanted continuity to some extent while maintaining uniqueness and identity for both spaces.

Irina’s passion for unique tapware and tile designs remained a focal point for this renovation as well, to maintain continuity with the main bathroom theme. She additionally wanted to enhance comfort with features like hot and cold water supply for a bidet and a 3-in-1 heater on the ceiling as well as a big overhead shower system.

Once everything was approved on the project scope, budget and design, we started the project ensuring there was minimal disruption to the client. Having done a renovation in their home before, they trusted us for our workmanship and project management.

Shower & Waterproofing

A custom-made 1m x 1m pull-out door frameless shower was chosen to maximise space and replace the previous acrylic shower. The tempered glass was treated with EnduroShield coating to minimise water stains. 

The floor and wall tiles were selected with waterproofing in mind, given the ensuite’s location on the third level. Our team employed full Aqualine GIB, ensuring a durable and water-resistant foundation, giving Irina peace of mind for years to come.

Bathroom Tiling

For the bathroom floor, we chose Metal Stone Silver 6*6 tiles, which offered a striking semi-polished porcelain look with a distinct silver metallic finish. The range of grey to charcoal tones with a silver sheen gave the bathroom a unique character.

The ensuite bathroom walls were adorned with Tivoli Grey Super Gloss 3*6 tiles, replicating the elegance of natural stone. The high gloss finish reflected light and added a sense of luxury to the space. These tiles were selected to match the countertop basin’s colour tone, ensuring a cohesive and visually appealing design.

For the shower’s wet area, Irina opted for feature wall tiles in Artwood Blackblue 200 X 1200. These tiles replicated the look of wood with a high degree of variation, adding a touch of warmth to the space.

Bathroom Cabinets and Storage:

We installed a 900mm wall-hung vanity from Bath&Tile. The vanity featured a custom white marble slab top, adding a touch of elegance to the space. To enhance functionality and convenience, we incorporated an LED auto-dim function into the mirror. This feature eliminated fog after showers and allowed for adjustable lighting from cold white to warm yellow, providing versatility for various lighting needs.

The counter-top basin selected for the ensuite not only looked elegant but was paired with a Methven gunmetal tall basin mixer, adding a touch of luxury to the daily routine.

Fixtures, Fittings, and Appliances:

To illuminate the ensuite, we chose Phillip LED downlights, paired with Resene Alabaster interior painting, creating a bright and inviting atmosphere.

The tapware, sourced from the renowned NZ brand Methven, featured a premium gunmetal finish, complementing the overall aesthetic of the ensuite. The Englefield back-to-wall rimless toilet added a modern touch, optimising space utilisation.

Irina’s desire for enhanced comfort was achieved through the inclusion of both hot and cold water supply for a bidet, providing an extra layer of convenience and luxury in the ensuite. The project also incorporated a 3-in-1 heater mounted on the ceiling. This choice eliminated the need for a traditional wall-mounted heater fan, offering efficient heating and maintaining a sleek and clutter-free design.

Overall outcome

The final result of Irina’s ensuite renovation is a testament to freshness, elegance, and functionality. The renovation process was streamlined through effective communication between our project manager and the client, with decisions, variations, fittings, and tile selections handled efficiently via email.

Premium Gunmetal finish tapware, along with shower accessories, tile edge trims and even a separate gunmetal mixer and hand bidet for the toilet. The ensuite now offers a harmonious blend of functionality and luxury, making it a welcoming space for Irina to enjoy.

All fittings come with Englefield/Renoarts and Methven warranties, and the workmanship is backed by a 1-year guarantee. Additionally, the waterproofing carries a 15-year warranty, assuring long-lasting quality.

 While she aimed to maintain the existing layout, her ultimate desire was to infuse a unique charm into the space through the renovation.

Shower and waterproofing:

A custom-made 1×1.2m sliding door shower acrylic shower was installed and the tempered glass has an Enduro Shield coating to minimise water stains.

The floor and wall tiles were selected with waterproofing in mind, considering the bathroom’s location on the second level. The project employed full Aqualine GIB, ensuring a durable and water-resistant foundation.

Bathroom Tiling

Tile selections included Artwood Bone Inlay 600 x 600mm for the bathroom floor. This is a wooden looking pattern with matching chevrons. The bathroom walls have stunning designs of Botanica Magnolia 600mm X 1200mm.

For the toilet area, we used New York Nero 450mm x 450mm. These tiles have smokey colours and an industrial finish. For the toilet walls, we used three different types of tiles to make a feature wall in this smaller area. The tiles include Everest Gloss wall (300 x 600mm), York Slim Gris Gloss (60mm x 400mm) and York Slim Pearl Gloss (60x 400mm).

Bathroom Cabinets and Storage:

The primary storage element in the bathroom is a 1200mm wall-hung vanity from Bath & Tile. Its Marble customised diamond black slab top adds a touch of elegance. To enhance functionality and aesthetics, a black mirror side cabinet was installed for towel storage, also doubling as a space for makeovers and dressing. In the toilet, a wall-hung Nano crystal vanity measuring 420mm was included, serving as a discreet storage solution.

Before we started, the bathroom had its challenges. Worn-out vanity panels and an old-fashioned shower setup showed its age. Plus, lots of windows made it tricky to plan the layout and fit in larger fixtures. 

The client’s desire for a modern, stylish bathroom included a frameless shower with a sliding door and a classic, luxurious look. 

Our job was to blend all these aspects smoothly, breathing new life into a space that was ready for a change.

This bathroom is a space where classic charm and contemporary style meet, offering a beautiful and inviting experience.

Complementing the wall’s elegance, the floor was adorned with 600 x 600mm Egyptian White Deco porcelain tiles, radiating a warm eggshell white that added depth to the space. These tiles are set in a captivating random mix, extended from the floor and rolled up to form a captivating feature wall behind the vanity, infusing the bathroom with character.

Bathroom Vanity & Storage

Our bathroom storage solutions combine practicality and style seamlessly. The 600mm wall-hung vanity, in the inviting tones of Brookfield Nordic Ash from Reece, comes with double drawers, adding an organised touch with elegance.

For added comfort, the Mizu Stream 800*600 heated towel rail takes its place, functional and snug. The Avon 600 mirror cabinet, elegantly recessed into the wall with its Nordic Ash design, offers extra storage for everyday needs. It’s worth noting that this cabinet includes an additional internal power socket, discreetly placed for easy charging without affecting the look.

Highlighting our comprehensive approach, a transformed window stands out. With external cladding and expert painting, it fits seamlessly with the bathroom’s look, enhancing both appearance and layout. This creative change shows our commitment to merging style and usefulness, capturing our dedication to a practical and sophisticated transformation.
