Before and After – Open Shower Towards Vanity
January 16, 2022

This before and after series is pretty specific it is when we often take away a bath and use the space better or it is an ensuite that the client would prefer a much larger feeling shower. These are often the two biggest reasons for this type of open shower walk-in design as you will see below.

Longer than your standard walk-in shower across from the vanity setup but still just as gorgeous

  • Fluted Curved Shower Screen Fixed Panel

Kensington Bathroom Renovation

For this renovation, we kept the same layout but added a sliding door set up and changed it to an open shower which gave them a much bigger feeling shower.


  • Custom Made Hampton Vanity
  • Shower Niche 300mm x 600mm
  • Brick Fashion Large Tile Feature Wall

Hillarys Bathroom Renovation

One thing I love about this Hillarys bathroom is the fish scale feature wall, the shame of the feature is items like this that are soft do not really show up in photos but in person look beautiful.


  • Fish Scale Feature Wall – Kantili Tiles
  • Wall To Wall All Draws Vanity From Bathroom City

Munster Bathroom Renovation

No one loves a spa bath more than Americans or the 2000’s housing market in Perth. Once you get rid of that giant square it will open your bathroom right up.


  • Brushed Nickel Mizu Tapware – Reece Plumbing
  • Shower In-Built Niche 300mm x 600mm

Attadale Bathroom Renovation

Often when you have inbuilt sliding mirror cabinets like this my first instinct is always to fill those bad boys in and put either a cleaner mirror cabinet or a normal mirror. The biggest problem with them is the sliding glass usually rust out or they an awkward size that does not match your vanity.


  • Highgrove Timber Vanity Top
  • Kantili Orion 75mm x 300mm Subway Tile

Maida Vale Bathroom Renovation

These floor tiles the Royal Chester Grey 450mm x 450mm from craft decor are stunning in person and the big benefit of patterned tiles is they hide the dirt!


  • Royal Chester Grey 450mm x 450mm Floor Tiles – Craft Decor
  • Astra Walker Matt Black Tapware

Dianella Bathroom Renovation

So much unused space for this renovation the key was to get as much as we could out of it. One key when you build a shower seat is you need to move the shower head into the ceiling as you are able to get under it better.


  • LED Mirror – Highgrove

Belmont Bathroom Renovation

With any room without a window, it can feel dark but by adding a skylight to a space you will really open the bathroom and make it feel warmer.


  • Concrete Nation Nude Basin
  • Cracked Feature Wall 75mm x 300mm
  • Brushed Brass Tapware

Leederville Bathroom Renovation

This set up is a little unique as it is a laundry/bathroom set up which if you ever do please always just have one sink it flows and looks so much better.


  • Shaker Style Cabinets
  • Subway and Herringbone Tiling Combination
  • Hexagon Floor Tiling
