My clients wanted to add an ensuite bathroom to their house. Therefore, they brought me in to help them with the design and the finishes of the space.
In 2018, they bought this 3 storey terrace style house with a stunning view
to Sydney’s skyline from its roof top.
Second bathroom required
Equipped with 4 spacious bedrooms, the home had only 1 bathroom. Allthough there are only 2 people living at this North Shore address, they wanted to have a second bathroom.
Ensuite adjacent to master bedroom
Luckily, the master bedroom was large enough to cut-off a part of it. Therefore, this became the new ensuite bathroom for the home owners.
Small ensuite bathroom feels large
Though the ensuite is small, it doesn’t feel cramped at all. It has even an oversized shower with a glass screen that slides to the side saving valueable space.
Marble adds touch of luxury
The black marble tiles with their luscious white veines add a touch of luxury to this bathroom. Simple white wall tiles and a charcoal coloured floor tile complement the gorgeous marble in addition.
Wall hung vanity in ensuite bathroom
When space is at a premium, I like to recommend a wall hung vanity to make a bathroom look bigger than it actually is. In this Waverton house, we fit in a 1.2 metres long vanity that gives plenty of practical bench space. Finished with the textured Ravine range from Polytec, the grey timber look ties in with the marble. With the shark nose edge on the top of the drawers we gave any handles a miss. Not only does this look contemporary and sleek. Above all, it is easy to clean and who doesn’t like that?
Stylish black tapware
Elegant is the wall mounted, minimalist water spout. The black tapware adds to the dramatic look of this ensuite bathroom. On top of the quartz stone counter sits a wash basin with a gold coloured inlay. This matches beautifully the large mirror with its frame in a distressed gold looking finish.
Tips for your own ensuite bathroom
In conclusion, if you wish to make a small ensuite bathroom look sophisticated, consider using:
- wall hung vanity
- large mirror
- small sized tiles (such as subway tiles)
