Situated in the leafy bayside suburb of Elwood, this brand new townhouse called for bathroom spaces that would allow them to escape the craziness of everyday family life, whilst bringing in maximum natural light and giving a nod to the home’s urban beachside location. smarterBATHROOMS+were brought in as bathroom + kitchen specialists to maximise the outcome in all wet areas, designing and building a master ensuite, main family bathroom and powder room, as well as the kitchen and laundry.
To ensure the home’s fluid, consistent feel throughout all wet areas, each room was carefully considered to open up the space and bring in light, whilst also creating a sense of privacy. The client’s desire to utilise each space to its maximum potential resulted in luxurious, highly functional spaces for the clients to retreat to.
Bringing natural light into the ensuite was a challenge, overcome by the introduction of large integrated glass panels reaching for the vaulted ceilings, and 3-panelled sliding doors on entry that gently unveiled the space to bring in light, or create a sense of privacy from the bedroom should that be required.
Beachy sand-coloured large format tiles with minimal grout lines create the perfect sleek backdrop for the walk-through shower and contrasting urban matte black Astra Walker tapware. American Oak mirrored shaving cabinets and floating shelf bring in the warmth of natural timber to these man-made surfaces.
Keeping a consistent style in multiple bathrooms has helped to create a seamless look throughout the home. This winning formula of tapware, tiles and timber has been replicated, with subtle variations, in the other bathrooms.
