Bathroom reno with outdoor clawfoot bath

A comprehensive bathroom renovation featuring an outdoor clawfoot bath set among a tropical garden.



The project


My dream bathroom was just that - in my dreams for seven years. I daydreamed, drew and dreamt about exactly how it would look, starting with the centrepiece - my clawfoot bathtub, nestled amongst tropical foliage in an outdoor garden, with large pots, pavers, river pebbles, lights and garden screens from Bunnings.


I managed the project and outsourced to tradies for carpentry, electrical, tiling, etc. I began by removing the bath, window and partial wall to allow access to the garden. It’s now a dreamy "zen den" enjoyed by all the family. 




Step 1


Removed old bath tub, sliding window and partially removed wall to allow doorway access to garden.




Step 2


Removed the old tiles and re-sheeted the walls. Updated the plumbing and fitted new tapware. Installed the outdoor plumbing for the clawfoot bath.



Step 3


Tiled and waterproofed the floor and walls. Built the new shower recess and fitted the glass shower panel. 



Step 4


Updated the lighting and sockets. Then painted the interior walls, ceiling and exterior walls. Fitted the new window and the door to the garden.

That looks great! What a difference you have created!

A couple of questions of course :smile: How long did the project take?  And what was the most terrifying part of it verse the best part? :smile:
