Removing square meterage from an existing bathroom and providing more space and function might sound impossible, but this city home proves otherwise.
The addition of a new bedroom meant the family bathroom lost space to a new hallway. However the owners still required a bath, a shower and double basins to be comfortably and stylishly accommodated.
To achieve this the shower was placed in a private cubicle to one side. The 1500 Newark bath provides ample soaking room on the opposite side, without closing in the space. The custom vanity in dark oak provides a focal point, with Cube inset bowls and Uno brushed nickel tapware set to one side to provide plenty of bench space. A laundry shoot is discreetly built into the cabinetry.
The earthy tones of the tiles and clever lighting ensure a light, calming welcome to the room and a break away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
The downstairs powder room maintained many of the same features but received a touch of extra glamour with unique wallpaper and backlighting to the mirror.
