Another beautiful bathroom renovation! We absolutely love this stunning herringbone feature wall tile with class & sophistication. Herringbone is still quite the classic trend giving any bathroom a superior feel. Floor tile in Ash grey, with a marble vein design through it - just beautiful! Clean lines with stunning Silestone by Cosentino 'White Storm' stone bench top and undermount basin. And a touch of class with of course our friends Reece Bathrooms Reece Accessories. And don't you just love the long channel grate with tile insert, a much cleaner, hidden bathroom drain. www.start2finishrenovations.com.au

The compact master ensuite still has a bit of wow factor. The walls are covered in a linen look vinyl wallpaper, the floor is adorned with mother of pearl terrazzo tiles and there is a huge custom shaving cabinet behind the simple custom framed mirror. The large walk in shower is privately hidden behind a full height wall.

Elegant in Design
From little things, big things grow. This project originated with a request for a custom sofa. It evolved into decorating and furnishing the entire lower floor of an urban apartment. The distinctive building featured industrial origins and exposed metal framed ceilings. Part of our brief was to address the unfinished look of the ceiling, while retaining the soaring height. The solution was to box out the trimmers between each beam, strengthening the visual impact of the ceiling without detracting from the industrial look or ceiling height. We also enclosed the void space under the stairs to create valuable storage and completed a full repaint to round out the building works. A textured stone paint in a contrasting colour was applied to the external brick walls to soften the industrial vibe. Floor rugs and window treatments added layers of texture and visual warmth. Custom designed bookshelves were created to fill the double height wall in the lounge room. With the success of the living areas, a kitchen renovation closely followed, with a brief to modernise and consider functionality. Keeping the same footprint, we extended the breakfast bar slightly and exchanged cupboards for drawers to increase storage capacity and ease of access. During the kitchen refurbishment, the scope was again extended to include a redesign of the bathrooms, laundry and powder room.

Designing a bathroom can be a real challenge, especially if you’re working with a small space. There’s so many elements - bathtub, shower, sink, toilet - it even needs to be a bathroom laundry combo sometimes. How are you going to fit it all in when your floorplan is limited? You’ll find inspiration and ideas in our picture gallery. Whether you’re looking for tile designs, layouts, colour schemes or decor ideas, we’ve got you covered! Here’s how you can use it best:

Use filters to narrow down images

You can choose from different styles like modern, traditional or scandinavian. You can choose from different primary colours like red, blue or green, or simple black and white - or browse colour schemes. You can choose different cabinet styles, finishes and benchtop materials. Your filter selections will help narrow down your search and show you images that are more relevant to what you’re looking for. You can even filter by bathroom location and look at small bathrooms in Sydney only - and if you like a design, you can contact the professional who has done the work!

Save your favourite ideas

Each photo has a ‘save’ button which allows you to collect your favourite images in ideabooks. You can then share your ideabook with your interior designer or builder and provide a great visual brief with images to convey your ideas. That’s usually easier than trying to explain what you want without necessarily knowing the industry terminology. The experts can then help you with the finer details, like how to make a small bathroom look bigger, or how to choose the right tiles.

Consider design as well as practicality

The prettiest colour scheme won’t make up for a poor layout, so decide on how you’re going to use the room first. Do you need it to double-up as a laundry as well? Then think about how that could work without getting in the way of using the bathroom otherwise. You should also consider your unique space. Thinking of a dark colour scheme? If your bathroom has no window, you may want to think again. Also, who is going to use the room? If grandma lives with you, consider a design that’s suitable and accessible for the elderly.

Find the right professional

While you are collecting your ideas, pay attention to the professionals that did the work - you can see their names under each photo. It may happen that you end up saving lots of photos from the same designer, in which case it would make a lot of sense to contact them for a quote.
