Reminiscent of a bygone era, this charming bathroom renovation was designed to suit its traditional surroundings.
Located in an old Georgian home, the main challenge for designer John Spiteri and the Brindabella team was to make this new bathroom look old again. To capture the desired look, John focused on several features exclusive to the era, such as selecting timber V-jointed panels in place of tiles. White this type of work is quite common in the United States it was an innovative way of thinking for an Australian bathroom.
For a truly authentic look, the effect was finished with traditional dado capping.
Brindabella constructed the entire bathroom from scratch to fit with the original building. Layered structural compressed sheeting was utilised for the wet floor areas, while the walls and doors were fashioned to blend with the Georgian theme. A range of period style fittings such as the door trim, brass handles and tap ware was selected to suit the traditional decor.
A lovely view of the lush gardens from the wide, paneled windows completes the time warp. Thanks to the expert craftsmanship and execution of Brindabella, the owners and their guests can sit back and enjoy their new ‘olden day’ bathroom.
