With both the ensuite and the family bathroom undergoing simultaneous upgrades, it was imperative these two areas were cohesive, while still showcasing points of difference. The master bathroom was given a sophisticated vibe and transformed the entire visual. A gorgeous natural limestone was used for feature walls in the shower, which was set against a backdrop of darker tones within the ensuite. The minimal look was achieved via a beautiful limestone top on the vanity framed by floating black timber cabinetry. Mirror cabinets hide storage and backlit LED lighting completes the modern aesthetic.
The family bathroom is equally luxe, relying on a lighter palette for its visual statement. The space was reconfigured to hide the toilet and allow for a walk-in shower; custom made vanity units combine form and function. Undermounted basins give a streamlined, minimal look and the wall mounted tapware adds to the sense of space. Beautiful ice grey tapware completes the story.
