The Wash Up

Remember at the beginning of the week I was racing off to check out a bathroom we’d been working on?

It looked fabulous and the client is so happy with the extra room they now have.

You see, there was a spare bedroom next to the master bedroom that had become the family dump-all. We all have those, right? And next to that was a long walk in linen closet.

As you can see, the spare bedroom was home to drum kits, extra clothes, bench press and husband’s paraphenalia.

So we decided to convert the two areas into a walk-in wardrobe and ensuite bathroom. This involved knocking holes in walls, relocating the access door to the master bedroom and creating a new linen cupboard.

Then, seeing we were giving the home an ensuite, we decided the existing upstairs bathroom needed updating too.

Ensuite Shower

The shower was under the window, which wasn’t ideal, so we moved things around and gave the room a more streamlined look by getting rid of the feature tiles and installing a frameless shower screen.

The family home has a separate toilet next to the bathroom so we updated it with a back-to-wall suite and lay new tiles the same as in the bathroom.

The end result is a better use of space for this family as well as giving everything a fresh new look.
