Californian bungalow renovationTraditional Bathroom, Sydney
The main bathroom was recreated in an authentic Californian bungalow style featuring tessellated tiles, subway tiles in a brick pattern with capping tiles, Shaker-style framed mirrored cabinet, pedestal vanity, older-style toilet with timber toilet seat and older-style accessories. The original stained glass window was maintained. The only modern variation was the streamlined glass shower wall.
What Houzz contributors are saying:
2. In this California bungalow in Sydney, the bathroom design incorporates the original stained-glass window, period fixtures and tessellated floor tiles to reference the home’s history. The owners have paired these period details with white subway tiles on the walls and a simple glass shower screen, to present a pared-back period-style bathroom.

4. Pedestal basinIf your basin preference is a simple wall-mounted basin, but your waste pipe has to go through the floor and can’t be changed, then a pedestal basin is a great option.Pros: The pedestal under the basin sits between the underside of the basin and the floor, concealing any pipework in between. A pedestal basin is also aesthetically pleasing and perfect if you want to add a classical vibe to your bathroom.Cons: Again, consider the fact that you won’t have any storage space under the basin, or any bench space around it. They can also be a bit tricky to clean around, as there is usually a gap between the wall and the back of the pedestal (as pictured here).Good for: Period properties and traditional schemes.
