Design Solution

A romantic retreat or luxury day spa with independent grooming and bathing areas, allows the occupant to enjoy the ritual of bathing.

The timber veneer vanity has been suspended from the wall to provide a horizontal element in the space. Large mirror panels above bring in additional lights into this part of the bathroom and reflect the bali pebble feature at the rear. Shaving cabinets integrated with these mirror panels provide storage space for cosmetics and bathroom products.
Drawers have been placed underneath the white porcelain vanity basins, achieved by carefully planning waste positions and the use of straight waste traps. Power points were placed in the drawers for general grooming aids to remain plugged in ready for use at all times.

A major focal point within the master suite is the two person spa featuring hydrotherapy jets to enjoy the therapeutic benefits of water after a long day at the office. A café shower head has been incorporated to aid in the bathing process. High raked ceilings above ceilings above these bathing areas add to the spaciousness of the room. A raised atrium between the bathing areas provide natural light to the area and enhances the texture of the vertical pebble feature. The toilet has been chosen for the easy cleaning of its concealed cistern and pan outlet.

The neutral toned wall and floor tiles create an applied pattern of horizontal and vertical lines, accented by chrome and stainless steel fixtures and fittings. The occupants of this bathroom can expect a light and airy atmosphere with Balinese feel.
