Hobless showers like this allow for a cleaner look on the floors. The key to hobless showers is to have the tiling spot on so the water does not run out. A key note is to remember semi frameless screens are the best for hobless showers.

  • Empire Grey 300mm x 600mm Floor

Canning Vale Bathroom Renovations 

The owners of this bathroom renovation wanted an island bath which is not the most common type of bath due to the amount of space it uses.


  • Island Bath

  • Beige Stone Top

  • D'Caliza 300mm x 300mm Floor (Glossy But Anti Slip)


Nollamara Bathroom Renovation 

Forsted shower screens are great for cleaning but do sometimes narrow a space of a room feeling like a wall.

Pro Tip - Frosted shower screens are great for someone who does not want to clean the shower screen. 

If keeping your budget down is your plan these examples are the best at that. They keep the plumbing where it is and just makes the room better. Generally the most expensive aspect will be the custom made screen but one way to avoid that is do a pre made screen with a gap between the vanity instead of a nib wall. What you should keep in mind though as some pre made screens are generic and the tiling needs to be spot on to accommodate these products.
