If you’re stuck for ideas on how you can renovate your tired bathroom – whether it’s a simple change of fittings or you want to gut the entire room and build your dream from scratch – these bathroom renovations will prove if you can dream it, you can do it. After all, the bathroom is an important part of our daily rituals of getting ready to go out into the world, followed by coming home and relaxing. Here are three examples of outstanding bathroom renovation projects that may just inspire you to get the sledgehammer out and get cracking.
Project 1: Colonial home
While this colonial home’s bathroom renovation by Sublime Architectural Interiors completely changes the space, the finishes were carefully chosen to enhance the character of the 1930s home. The team decided to only tile the shower recess so that the traditional VJ panelling could tie the bathroom with the rest of the home. Features such as the freestanding bath, shaker-style doors on the vanity and large-format porcelain tiles enhance the timeless character elements.
Project 2: Family home
The team at Graya Construction completely renovated this old Queensland home into a modern feat of architecture, and the bathroom illustrates this well. With the entire project taking 11 months, luxe modern tiles replace worn timber panelling, and the mixture of a dark colour scheme with natural textures and industrial-style fittings completely reinvents the space.
Project 3: Cottage home
Style Kitchens by Design renovated the bathroom of this little cottage, helping turn it into a large family home. The client’s vision for the bathroom was for it to be modern and classy, which Style Kitchens by Design achieved with the natural vanity tops with sleek, no-handle drawers underneath. The most challenging aspect of the project was sourcing the marble and solid hardwood from a friend of the family’s farm that was then machined down to the site. But, we’d say the payoff was worth it.
