Laundry, shower and toilet makeover

Updating this small laundry with adjoining shower and toilet included installing terrazzo tiling and VJ panelling, and securing Kaboodle doors on custom-built cabinets.

The project


I recently renovated my small 2.3m x 2.1m laundry, and the adjoining shower and toilet. We did all the tiling, VJ panelling and painting ourselves, but left the plumbing and electrical work to the experts.


I built all the carcasses for the cupboards and bought Kaboodle doors and infills.




I installed water-resistant VJ panel boards to all areas.




All the materials were purchased from Bunnings with the help of the service desk. I really appreciated their help in ordering all the items required.




My wife chose the tiles, colours, and accessories.

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @Godzilla. It's terrific to have you join us, and many thanks for your question about this wonderful project.


Let me mention @Joe3333, so they are alerted to your question. You'll find all the Kaboodle colours on their website. I'm thinking this might be Antique White USA, but it's a bit hard to tell just from the images.
