The Scandi Farmhouse Bathroom and Toilet

Sometimes before I begin a project my clients like to visualise the layout of the room so I sketch up some 3D plans with various layouts. Often these plans change throughout the build, however the heart of the plan usually stays the same. Below you can see the process from the sketch up to the final product.

One of the great features of this bathroom was suggested by my client. She wanted a shower screen that could fold to the wall when she had a bath and open when she needed to use it for the shower.

This particular renovation was done on an old, beautiful Victorian home. Often older homes can present some of the greatest unforeseen challenges. This home was no exception. Professional asbestos removal was planned for the walls but when I turned up on the first day of the job I discovered that the ceilings were also removed in both the bathroom and the toilet! A day at a time I reconstructed the rooms and worked my way to the finished product. Overall the end product was not exactly as it was planned to be in the beginning, however it was a lovely result and the clients were very happy.

I was also asked to renovate the water closet for this beautiful home.

This beautiful vanity was made by Allan Tyers from a lovely piece of Norfolk Pine. Allan filled all of the natural knots and holes with resin so that they could be admired and yet functional at the same time.

I gave the toilet a half wall of tiles that matched the guest bathroom walls. The tiles on the walls and floors created a sense of connection and balance between the toilet and bathroom.

Overall this project had a pleasing outcome and the rooms feel vibrant, fresh and inviting.
