Before/After: Bondi Bathroom Remodel by Minosa Design

By • Feb 24, 2013

This bathroom, part of a home located on Bondi Beach in Sydney, Australia, was remodeled by Minosa Design.

The space was transformed from dull and ordinary to modern and bright, with added sources of light and elegant accessories.

Here’s the before…

And the after…

Before/After: Bondi Bathroom Remodel by Minosa Design:

“The layout of the bathroom as far as fixtures went, was self-selecting; there were real challenges with this space. The first was to establish a way to get the plumbing were it needed to be and how do we treat the circular window that cannot be changed! Minosa Design decided the best thing was to create a false wall to do two things. First thing was it allowed the running of plumbing works and secondly it deepened the round window and made it a real feature. This was then tiled with the selected Bisazza feature tile to highlight the depth and push the eye thru to the Bondi view.

A floor to ceiling cabinet was placed in front of the structural pier and applied with mirror, this has a two-fold action…one it allows for a full-length mirror and second it gives great storage. The storage has a benchtop inside with GPO’s located inside to allow for the use of all electrical goods and keeps them away from the water points. The next hurdle was the shower, it was decide to create a false floor and dropped ceiling, feature tiles were applied for to make the space feel taller. LED lights have been applied to the vertical wall opposite the Bisazza wall to make the pearl tiles glisten and shine.

The custom made washbasin was selected to give the client a simple streamlined affect, slow flow tapware is required to maximise the function of this “flat” washbasin. LED lighting was applied to the underside of the washbasin & also the joinery below to highlight the free space to give a feeling of depth.

Mirror was applied to the two return piers to make them disappear and to give a greater feeling depth to the bathroom this also helped with the glamour.

Pendant lights were selected for their decorative appearance and applied in front of the side faced mirrors.

The clever use of recessed joinery, mirror and light gives this bathroom a real touch of glamour, the Bisazza glass mosaics applied to the wall, floor and ceiling of the shower as well as what was the “problem” wall with the round window has really added a shimmer to this modern bathroom.

With a large amount of products required the real success to this bathroom is the overall feeling of space achieved.”
