Kingfisher, Chapel Hill
Our clients wanted a clean, modern look for this traditional Queenslander bathroom renovation. Cohesion with the traditional Queenslander style home was essential to maintain certain features in the bathroom design. This Brisbane home had a strong pull of detailed wooden features. Intricate balcony railings, floorboards and picture railings throughout.
To achieve the brief, we used large format tiles for a modern background both the floors and walls. Rectified tiles minimised grout lines. A mid-grey grout was to create a seamless finish. The vanities, bath and shaver cabinets also held clean, straight lines to make the space feel large and modern, all in a white palette.
As a backdrop and introduction to the more traditional features, 100 x 300mm subway tiles were used in the shower and powder room, laid in herringbone style. This addition set the scene and added contrast to the larger tiles. The round features were then introduced to soften the spaces. These can be seen in the semi inset basins, wall sconces and powder room mirror, right through to the soft curves of the chrome hardware in the tapware, handles and rails.
