Clarkson Bathroom Renovation
Lovely owner who really had a vision for the space. Whenever you have two doors in a bathroom I always suggest getting rid of the door to the bedroom you can use the space so much better without it trust me. The key to any good shower bath renovation is making it look stunning combined with being practical.
- Subway Tiling Feature Wall
- Shaker Vanity
- Heated Towel Rail
Rivervale Bathroom Renovation
This rental was experiencing a high level of leaking from the roman bath (SO UNCOMFORTABLE) that existed that did not contain any waterproofing. The plan for this was to provide a more comfortable bath for families with young kids which the Shower Bath renovation is the go-to.

Gold fittings can be hit or miss but these beautiful gold fittings are perfect. The brass finish tiles in so well with the shower niche and its darker tone opposed to some yellow looking fittings really make it look classy.

Riverton Bathroom Renovation
The owner for this bathroom renovation in Riverton WA wanted to install a toilet instead of having a separate shower. A second toilet was a bigger priority in the house due to it being a 4 x 1. Shower Bath renovations are best used to serve as getting an immediate need sorted.

- Stone Wash Vessel Basin
- Caroma Deep Lay Bath

Wet Room Example – Bathroom Renovation Canning Vale
The wet room is the ultimate in modern renovation ideas as it allows for a shower and a bath separate where before it would have been a shower bath like this Thornlie renovation below. For more information on Wet Room, set-ups CLICK HERE.
Extra Style – Three Wall Shower Bath (Roman Bath)
Southern River Bathroom Renovation
Below are bathroom renovations we recently completed that wanted a bath option but did not want a bath you stand-in or a wet room bath so the only option was the classic roman bath. A roman bath has three walls built around it and in theory, is the best of both worlds a bath you can lay in and a stand-in. The only issue is they are not the most comfortable baths but has its upsides.
- Rose Gold Tapware
- Wooden Benchtop
- Wall To Wall Niche/Rest
Thornlie Bathroom Renovation
The key to this roman bath setup was having a large frosted shower screen to help with privacy allowing two people to use the bathroom at one time if needed.
- Matte Black Eden Tapware
- Custom Made 3m Vanity – Only Draws
- Custom Made Semi Framed Black Trim Shower Screen – Frosted Shower Screen
Shower baths are not everyone’s cup of tea. Hopefully, these before and afters of shower baths have helped that. The feelings of getting in and out of something high can be tricky and a little slippery. I find people install them for function over style so it’s important to try and nail both if possible. Shower baths are great at making space for something else.
All this is to say renovations have a purpose and if your purpose is to gain something such a toilet then why not sacrifice a walk-in shower and hey if you love a shower bath then definitely install one its something you have to live with every day so don’t listen to what other people tell you. Renovate to your needs and wants not the needs and wants of others who are not using it every day.
