Before and After – Alcove Bathroom Renovations
May 30, 2018

Alcove bathroom renovations are exactly as they sounds, they all have a shower space that has three walls and one screen with a pivot door that is located at the front of the alcove. This bathroom layout is often really when the original building of the home needed space in the laundry or a linen cupboard so they make the bathroom smaller width-wise and stick in this shower alcove. The Alcove bathroom renovation often requires a custom-made wall to wall shower screen to allow a complete finish but we are now moving into the realm of wet rooms so open alcoves are becoming a trend. This before and after series is to highlight the many types of bathroom layouts and help with ideas on what your new bathroom can become.

Bathroom Renovation Ascot

I love the touch of color but it is not for everyone. The owner of this Ascot renovation went back and forth on the blue feature wall but I think the decision on the plain white tiles gives the vanity and floor a real pop

Bathroom Renovation Parkwood

Light and bright were the owners wish for this bathroom renovation. The marble matt 600 x 600 tiles allow for something that is light but adds a warm feature to the room

Bathroom Renovation Kiara

I love this bathroom for many reasons but the owner had a great vision for what they wanted to really maximize the space. This beautiful Alcove shower screen used a nice finishing black trim that sets off that gorgeous Black Butt timber vanity.

Churchlands Bathroom Renovation

For this Alcove bathroom renovation, the client did not want a light up mirror which is what we suggest for the best face lighting you can get unless you have space for the right side wall lights.

All white bathrooms are at least something that looks clean! You can see this alcove bathroom transformation in Parkwood and the  difference it makes not only tiling full height but the light bathroom tiling floor to ceiling makes it look so much bigger

Bathroom Renovation Lesmurdie

Try to never let items you can change dictate your bathroom renovation experience. Often clients will get caught up trying to match a wood frame or a ceiling fixture. If you really do not want to have to have beige or brown because the frames are brown then just paint them it will make your life so much easier trust me.

  • Tiling floor to ceiling in the same time can make a room feel large as there is no break between the floor and walls.

This renovation was a little unique as the room had a tremendous waste of space where he hallway goes from door behind this image below. The owner still manages to fit a freestanding bath, toilet and vanity in the same spacing through great planning and a lot of hard work.
