Bathroom renovation is always tricky in a small space.
When we started planning this bathroom we knew it had to have a skylight – it was so dark to start with. Another must was the great circle mirror from Bunnings. It acts as a great night light for the kids.
It was tough to let go of the bath in this room but I didn’t want to have a combined shower and bath and risk someone falling when getting in. We opted for the shower only.
The toilet was originally in a separate little room but by putting it all in together we gained much more space.
The floor tiles are a non-slip terrazzo look, which is just beautiful. We used a basic subway tile for the shower walls but by laying them tall it really added to the look.
We used VJ panels instead of tiles on the other walls. It saved us a lot of time and money, we think it looks great, and it ties in to the living room as well.
The floating vanity was made by a backyard tradesman, but my favourite feature of this room is the heated towel rail.
No matter what type of bathroom you have, it all starts with planning and research to discover how you can make best use of what is often the smallest room in the house.
