A large Turramurra bathroom has been re-designed as a luxurious and glamorous haven in which to relax and unwind
The bathroom is located on the top floor of a grand, 1920s home. These homeowners wished to update the ensuite bathroom to the master bedroom to make the most of the large space at their disposal. Early in the discussion with the designer, the owners flagged the idea of a walk-in double shower so the designer set about making this the central feature of the bathroom.
The age of the house presented a few challenges including no ability to move the toilet because of the plumbing and an existing chimney stack which intruded into the room, plus small windows which limited natural light within the bathroom.
It was vital the new design allowed for two users at any one time so consideration had to be given to traffic flow as well as how the bathroom could interact with the open-plan, walk-through dressing room next door.
The owners wanted to create a sense of grandeur, glamour and luxury that would suit the style of the home but, at the same time, end up with a modern, well-functioning ensuite bathroom that was light and airy.
