Rock Solid Luxury
This Brisbane bathroom renovation project was an absolute delight from start to finish. Pete Evans from Briswest Renovations engaged my services for the project. Meeting our clients, we immediately saw their own clever eye for design throughout the rest of this Brisbane home and embraced the ability to ensure their bathroom design met the brief of luxury and style.
Our clients had transformed their home through earlier renovations, creating a warm and relaxing environment featuring timbers, warm whites with paired back details in black to bring modernity to their classic style. They were keen to continue this approach for their bathrooms and ensure a refined finish to the spaces. It made for a relaxing and engaging relationship between all of us, particularly important during a further period Covid restrictions for Brisbane. We have learned to embrace the changes to our working environment as and when they occur, ensuring strong communication and connections with our clients and Brisbane bathroom suppliers.
For this bathroom renovation project, we addressed the warm whites first selecting the stunning Rock Salt in white gold from Beaumont Tiles Enoggera for floor to ceiling - with its V3 rating, the variation in faces gave an instant natural feel to the space and injected instant luxe. As ever, Briswest Renovations’ tiling specialist carefully planned placement of the tiles, ensuring a natural formation in pattern and effect, the light grout setting off the structure within the tiles. For the floor, a more subtle approach was taken with larger format warm grey tiles allowing the eye to be drawn forward and up to the main elements.
Timber vanities with a beautiful grain were selected to hold their own against the wall tiles, softened with elegant, above mount round basins for the main bathroom. The timber surround mirrors adorn the walls and keep the strength of the design. Being smaller spaces, in the powder room and ensuite, a paired back approach was used, with soft rectangular basins and smaller mirrors. The powder room mirror was a simple black frame, following the shape of the basin, the ensuite bringing task lighting through with an LED surround circular mirror.
Further elegance was adopted for the main bathroom with the stunning Kado Neue freestanding bath from Reece’s Bathroom Life, Indooroopilly. With its dial pointed firmly towards luxury and high end design, our clients were most excited by this selection. Throughout, matt black tap ware was chosen with its classic era approach. It was important to bring this softened feeling through so as to remain true to the design ethic of the home.
The double shower in the main bathroom injected further luxury into the space, settling perfectly against a classic 100 x 200mm white subway feature wall in a brick bond lay, mirroring the splash back in the kitchen.
Our clients were delighted with the result, a perfect end to their dream renovation and timely, allowing them to enjoy some forced time at home during the remainder of 2020.
