Before and After – Alcove Bathrooms
May 30, 2018

An alcove shower is exactly as it sounds a shower space that is located in an alcove. This bathroom layout is really caused where the person building needed space in the laundry or a linen cupboard so they make the bathroom smaller width-wise and stick in this shower alcove. This style of 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. At the end, I will post all the before and afters we have done in the series.
 

Bathroom Renovation Huntingdale

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.

I love pattern on the floor but it is not for everyone. It is great for cleaning and adds a real wow factor.

Extra Info

  • High patterned floor is a big statement and sometimes risky. Often we struggle to keep our floors clean and this style of bathroom tile draws everyone’s eyes to it.

Extra Info

  • Semi-frameless shower screens are the most ideal screen for water retention and style. YES, frameless can have a wow factor but not everyone will love the small amount of water that can sometimes leak from.
