1970s Ensuite Bathroom Before & After
This Federation house had a revamp in the 70’s but was still staged in the turn off the century with its ceiling details. The shower was pokey and the entire room dark and gloomy with ample room to dance around in the middle. The ceiling was also bowing and was stained from moisture. There was also a step down into the bathroom off from the main bedroom.
My client brief:
Create a seamless level floor finish from the bedroom to the bathroom for ease of access, better airflow and ease of using the windows. Light and bright with walk-in shower and separate freestanding bath tub and bring a little luxury into the room.
Once the demolition was complete the existing brick walls were patched and new mortar installed as well as a new floor installed to raise the floor level and a new drop plasterboard ceiling installed to house downlights and to overcome the bowing and luckily we had a lot of height to play with. The bathroom was really stripped back to its bones.
The result is a stylish black and white classic bathroom with all of the mod cons. Marble tiles were installed to add the luxury whilst the louvered windows were installed to give better airflow and can be tilted at different times of the day to create privacy. The niches assist with the practicalities of reaching for items at arm's length and the bathtub by the window creates a lovely natural light to bath in. Storage has been achieved with the drawers in the vanity unit and the mirrored cupboard. The floors are now all level from the bedroom to the bathroom.
