White on white bathroom - a exercise in restraint.

A great space not one that pushes the latest trends, materials or gadgets, it is the space that reflects the client, home and its location.

Situated in the beach side suburb of Woy Woy on Sydney’s central coast this soon to be constructed master en-suite was a exercise in restraint. One that was all about balance, calm and for the graphic design client all about the continuation of line.

One of the most challenging things to do in a bathroom is connecting the lines to make the space restful on the eye, when the lines are clean and  un-interrupted there is a sense of calm.

Ideas to love!
We love the turned up skirting tile that runs the perimeter of the room. The tile highly sets this dimension and this determines the vanity height.

We love the niche, with a request for a foot rest for shaving legs we decided to lower the niche it then doubles as a foot rest and a place to store shower products.

Walk in shower, nothing says going turn me on (the shower that is) quite like a open shower, there is no barrier or screen and no glass which means easy to clean! But with a deep recess like this the water will not splash our. 

Heated towel rails approved for wet area zoning are used in a vertical application to draw the eye up rather than across, also nobody unless you are on a photo shoot can fold a towel nicely in daily use!!!! But it is very easy to hang a towel on a hook!

The big hero of this space is then lightness of space. The large skylite is a master stroke and with only one downlight to feature the stud ing 3D wall art the lighting plan had to be very carefully considered.

White on white bathrooms don’t not have to be boring. The detail is the design.
