My dream bathroom with claw foot outdoor bath

My Dream Bathroom was just that….in my dreams for 7 years!! I daydreamed, drew & dreamt about exactly how it would look,, starting with the  centerpiece - my claw foot bathtub, nestled amongst tropical foliage in an outdoor garden, with large pots, pavers, river pebbles, lights & garden screens from Bunnings.  I project managed & outsourced the tradies for carpentry, electrical, tiling etc. & began by removing the bath, window & partial wall to allow access to the garden.  It’s now a dreamy zen den enjoyed by all the family. 



floor & wall tiles (Johnson Mars);  shower screen; black tap ware; grey pavers; polished river stones; black fiberglass pots; black garden screens 900x1800; illuminated led garden screen/light; indoor paint (resilience); outdoor paint (hammer grey) ; guttering; hardiflex; silicone; glue; grout etc

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @Wendy56. It's sensational to have you join us, and many thanks for sharing your wonderful project.


Your dream bathroom is brilliant, and I trust you're thrilled with the results! Your vision for this space, with the centrepiece being the stunning clawfoot bathtub surrounded by tropical foliage in an outdoor garden, is nothing short of breathtaking. The beautifully polished result shows the thought and effort you put into planning and designing every detail.


All the fixtures and floor and wall tiles come together harmoniously to create a fabulous look.
