The owners of this 1950s home in Northern Ireland wanted to transform their bathroom and separate toilet to make it into a large, family friendly room. The two-room layout made both spaces feel crampt and didn't work with the flow of the house.
After speaking to a bathroom designer, the owners decided to knock down the wall between the two and levelled the floor to create more space. After re-jigging the room and closing off a previous doorway the room was transformed into a large L-shape.
The bathroom transformation was completed in just eight days, which meant the owners didn't have to deal with too much upheveal.
Knocking down the wall between the old bathroom and separate loo gave the owners space to have a luxurious corner bath and separate shower enclosure. After deciding on a neutral colour scheme, the owners went for large format taupe coloured tiles with a brown mosaic feature wall. The decorative tiles have also been used to finish off the bath and add plenty of character and texture to an otherwise neutral room.
A mirrored cabinet, wall hung basin and chrome fixtures and fittings give the new bathroom a fresh, modern feel.
