No surprises that a recent bathroom design brief for teenage sisters came with a hefty check list! Maximum storage, natural lighting, good size bath and a spacious shower were hot on the list, Mum’s final instruction was for a clean minimal aesthetic in keeping with the rest of the new build project.
In order to maximize space the bath was placed within the shower wet area, making the back to wall free standing bath a practical solution. A full height glass screen cleanly separated the room into two areas. Recessed mirror cabinet provided additional storage for smaller items and the wall hung vanity added to the illusion of space. Matt white wall tiles in three different sizes and orientation added texture.

Many new build plans are now including Guest Powder Rooms. They are a fantastic opportunity to go a little wild.
You can forget all the practical restrictions that the main bathroom and ensuite will command, no steam to worry about, limited storage will be required … basically it just has to be pretty! As a space you nip in and out of you won’t tire of a bold statement decision. How do I achieve all that I hear you ask, the answer is simple ……..WALLPAPER.
The Powder Room is a tiny space that should pack a big punch, think about not only the vanity but the mirror, and the lighting. Surprise and delight your guests with pattern and colour, are you bright and cheerful or dark and moody..
I have found these little beauties on Pinterest, saved to my bathroom board for further info.
These striking Interiors are the work of Interior Designer Katty Schiebeck of Barcelona.
I love the simplicity of these spaces. Great Design will always appear effortlessly simple when in fact the spaces are loaded with sophisticated detail.
This is a kitchen of two halves – on one hand you have slick modern cabinetry while within the same space the Island features traditional paneling and plinth detailing. The simplistic material and colour pallet adds a timeless strength to the space.
The unexpected combination is striking.
Schiebeck’s simplistic minimalism is evident in the Bathroom as well. The clever repetition of shapes is subtle – rectangular vanity boxes and cube lighting, the shower space almost goes unnoticed but for the simple glass screen.
In a word ……..elegant.
