Before & After: The Main Bathroom

Following from our new ensuite, our fabulous Main Bathroom renovation needed to include a new entrance and an updated look to elevate the design on a budget. Our requirement for a second toilet lead us to replace the old separate shower with a new loo, and instead have the shower over the bath. Now suddenly the room feels spacious - and tall (thanks to the tiles now reaching the ceiling!). Overall, the look in here is a little like a boutique hotel, but with enough playfulness to be a kid friendly family bathroom.

and Above Right: Original Before - Tacky, cheap, cracked tiles, rotten vanity and disgraceful mirror frame.

  1. Do you normally compose just for this domain or maybe for any other online or offline networks?

  2. That is amazing! We have a white tile back splash that lacks imagination (installed by previous owner), but this rocks! Great style!
