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.

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