The owners of this house chose to rip out their dated bathroom suite and make a chic freestanding bath the centrepiece of the room. With the addition of glossy granite tiles and lime-green accents, theyve created their own modern sanctuary.
2/7 Bright white sanitaryware
3/7 Towel ladder
Towel ladders are the new towel rails. In this glossy bathroom the bath sheet storage adds a rustic touch and, as it doesn't need to be fixed to the wall, it can easily be repositioned.
4/7 Function versus design
The owners sensibly chose a practical compact mixer tap a curved design would have splashed water over the shallow edge of the basin.
5/7 Mirrored bathroom cabinets
6/7 Sanctuary chic
Although contemporary in design, the freestanding bath has sweeping curved lines, creating an organic feel, which is echoed in the curved shape of the bath tap.
7/7 The bathroom before…
To achieve the spa-like bathroom space that the owners wanted, the bath was ripped out and the new one placed under the window. The addition of stud walls to frame it now gives you the real wow factor as you enter the room.
