Jandakot Bathroom Renovation

The owner of this home’s big request was the biggest vanity we could get for all her growing kid’s needs. She no longer required a small bath and wanted to maximize the space with a walk-in shower and large double vanity. I personally love the color choices.

Highlights

  • OSCA Ceiling High Cabinets
  • Shower Seat
  • Matte Black Frameless Shower Screen

Kalamunda Bathroom Renovation

This is a classic 80’s bathroom combining a floral feature pattern tile, brown base tiles, and the wired shower screen that always cracked!

Como Bathroom Renovation

Second Story bathroom renovations often are a little more complicated due to the restrictive nature of what you can do with pluming especially floor wastes. This beautiful bathroom renovation has a raised floor to create a semi hobless shower.

Highlights

  • Handcrafted Subway Tiles
  • Mela Brushed Brass Tapware
  • Eden Oak Vanity

Doubleview Bathroom Renovation

Simple can be stunning. By moving the location of the vanity for this bathroom it allows for a mirror above the vanity which sounds simple but it can mean a lot to a bathroom owner.

Joondana Bathroom Renovation

South Perth Bathroom Renovation

The amount of water damage in this bathroom was insane. You can see from the before image the water had destroyed the cabinet over a short period of 6 months. Once that waterproofing has failed or is non existent water will travel so quick.

Langford Bathroom Renovation

This before bathroom renovation is one of the craziest before bathroom renovations I have ever seen. This thing was a nightmare to clean let alone use and the owner did the best decision ever by changing it to a walk-in shower. The challenge was getting a mirror to fit after we installed a much lower window.

Highlights

  • 600mm x 600mm Vista Dark Tiles
  • Dracula 1200mm All Draws Vanity
  • Matte Black Window – Slider
