Project Overview

Following the successful renovation of Irina's main bathroom and toilet, our team undertook the next phase of the project - the ensuite on the third level.

Irina’s vision was to maximise the available space while introducing a fresh colour tone to this ensuite. 

Jimmy and his team carried out a renovation project in my house – Bathroom, ensuite and toilet. Finished on time, quality of work was to the highest standard. Also, the quoted price stayed the same with no changes. I love my new bathrooms! Thank you!

Before The Renovation​

IMG 20230225 105839

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.

After The Renovation

Overall look & feel

Step into Irina’s renewed ensuite, where a harmonious blend of colours and textures creates an inviting atmosphere. Silver metallic floor tiles provide a striking backdrop, while luxurious Tivoli Grey Super Gloss wall tiles replicate natural stone.

The wall-hung vanity, crowned with a custom white marble slab top, exudes elegance. An LED auto-dim mirror eliminates fog and offers versatile lighting. Premium gunmetal Methven tapware complements the modern design.

This ensuite is a functional yet elegant retreat for Irina, where every detail exudes freshness and sophistication.

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.
