Today we so excited to share with you an ensuite bathroom. This bathroom belongs to Gina who is the Editor of an Australian blog, “The Style Curator“.
Gina has shared her own home build journey and has demolished an existing house to make way for an architectural designed home. Join us as we ask Gina some questions about her ensuite bathroom.
What did you learn from designing and building your ensuite?
Our ensuite was originally designed as a long narrow room which would have made even fitting a shower a challenge given there is a window against the back wall. Studying the floor plan, I found an opportunity to move one wall back (where it meets the top of the stairwell), and this allowed us to put the shower to the right as you enter the ensuite, freeing up the rest of the space for a large vanity. I desperately wanted to fit a bath in here too but it just wasn’t going to happen! As Neal Whitaker says ‘Luxury shouldn’t feel cramped’.
What have you leant from your ensuite build?
Face-level storage is priceless, put it in if you can!
Be sure to check everything off before tiling begins, we had to move some plumbing and noticed they hadn’t put our wall niche in so luckily they could fix this before the space was tiled.
Don’t let trades talk you out of things you really want! I was hated by our tiler for our choice of tiles (handmade subway tiles and cement floor tiles) because they’re harder to work with than standard porcelain tiles but I feel our choice of tiles is what really makes this space.
What is your favourite thing?
Perhaps it’s the raked ceiling or the soft cement tiles underfoot but this ensuite just has such a cozy and inviting feel to it. Having a his and hers sink is also a luxury I enjoy 🙂
