View the TRANSFORMATION
Before The Renovation
Signs of wear and tear were evident on the vanity and shower, prompting her decision to embark on a renovation journey.
Irina had a clear vision – she wanted to incorporate distinctive tapware and tile designs into her main bathroom and toilet.
While she aimed to maintain the existing layout, her ultimate desire was to infuse a unique charm into the space through the renovation.
After The Renovation
Overall look & feel
Irina’s main bathroom has undergone a remarkable transformation, now exuding an air of timeless sophistication and contemporary functionality. The centerpiece is an elegant custom-made sliding door shower, featuring tempered glass that seamlessly balances aesthetics and practicality.
The carefully chosen tiles redefine the space, creating an ambiance that is both inviting and opulent. In the toilet area, New York Nero tiles set a unique tone, complemented by an eye-catching feature wall created by a harmonious blend of different tile designs.
Elegance meets convenience with thoughtfully designed storage solutions, premium Methven tapware, and a blend of illumination and ventilation. The Englefield back-to-wall rimless toilet is the epitome of modern bathroom design.
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.
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.
Fixtures, Fittings, and Appliances:
The bathroom renovation was a harmonious blend of various elements. Philip LED downlights, along with Resene Alabaster interior painting, illuminated the space.
The tapware, sourced from the renowned NZ brand Methven, featured a striking Gunmetal colour. The toilet boasted an Englefield back-to-wall rimless design. Practicality was addressed with the inclusion of an independent extractor fan, catering to both residential and potential rental needs.
The final touches of elegance were brought by LED mirrors and a counter-top basin. An extractor fan was strategically placed on the wall, complemented by a 3-in-1 heater on the ceiling for added comfort.
Irina’s main bathroom now stands as a testament to freshness, elegance, and functionality. The communication throughout the project was streamlined through emails, facilitating decisions, variations, and updates. Premium Gunmetal finish tapware, along with shower accessories, tile edge trims, and even the mixer for the hand bidet, contributed to the unified aesthetic. The separate gunmetal mixer and hand bidet added a practical touch to the toilet area. 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.
