Prior to renovating, the ensuite was a tight space lacking style and comfort. It consisted of a fully framed shower tucked in the corner, a vanity with minimal functional storage and a toilet. Ensuites are meant to be luxurious spaces you retreat and relax in. It was our task to achieve this.
A custom recessed mirror cabinet has been installed above the vanity, providing the ability to store all bathroom essentials as well as house powerpoints. Below this mirror cabinet we have built out an alcove which runs along the whole vanity wall. This is perfect for styling candles, soaps etc as well as acting as a shower shelf. In this alcove we have specified a matte grey glass penny tile which is simply stunning. It is eye catching as it showcases a subtle texture as the led strip light above shines downwards.
The wow factor in this space is the charcoal oak Zuster vanity. This sure is a showstopping furniture piece, it is a piece of art. We specified this vanity for its open design which enhances the minimal floorplace, we were conscious to not enclose the room. Plus we loved that you can view the beautiful porcelain tile behind it.
Adding a striking natural element to this finished bathroom we installed a stunning calacatta marble basin onto the vanity. Now who wouldn’t like to be brushing their teeth over this basin? The metal finish specified for this space in the tapware and accessories was polished chrome. This finish is timeless and classic, perfect for a bathroom which will stand the test of time.
When selecting materials our client trusted us to choose materials and finishes which they would never have selected independently. They held their trust in us and it sure paid off.
