Yet another big (short) week down and the busy Christmas period starting to sneak up on us already! So we bring to you Part 3 of the Bay House series – the wet areas!
The existing bathroom and laundry spaces were very dated, as was the rest of the home. Featuring old melamine joinery, small format tiles, and a pink colour scheme through finishes, fixtures and fittings – A real vision taken right from the 90’s! So here is a little insight into the transformations we were able to achieve!
The original bathroom had quite a lot of heavy built in fixtures and fitting, and the clients desired a much fresher, more seamless look to the space. The general lay out was kept similarly to that of the original bathroom, however the space was slightly increased to give the clients the spacious open main bathroom they desired. Upon entering the space you are immediately met with the beautiful natural materials and clean lines of the new bathroom, which creates the fresh intriguing atmosphere we were after! The bathroom then flows onto a private walk in shower area and generous free standing bath behind.
Black Satin finished tap wear and hanging towel rail act as a bold feature in the space, as they add both movement and depth to the organic grey toned scheme. The Corian solid surface benches in the main bathroom and powder room capture the seamless aesthetic and celebrate the varying custom mirrors above.
The main intention with the laundry was to maximise the overall space of the room and design more usable bench space into the joinery. The exiting built in hot water unit was removed and repositioned into a new service court. This allowed for the removal of the surrounding partitions which paved the way for more floor space within the room. All the appliances within the space where positioned under bench to aid in the increase of bench top room, and an open timber solid timber walnut shelf creates a sense of warmth whilst also providing extra storage above bench. The client wanted extra hanging space for hanging delicate so a black powder coated hanging rail was installed closest to the door for sunlight and ventilation.
The open shelf acts as a feature in the space with a solid walnut timber finish that also links back to the timber within the rest of the home and bring some added warmth into the room. The benchtop and splashback in the laundry is the hardwearing Laminam porcelain product that was used in the kitchen, once again to ensure continuity between the two spaces as well as injecting a crisp modern touch.
