The upstairs bathroom is the main bathroom for the first floor and master bedroom. This room was fairly basic with black formica surfaces, black and white shower tiles and black lino flooring.
We loved the porthole, it provides a really lovely morning light, although the glass was shot and leaking so job one was to replace the glass here.
The room is fairly small and the existing built-in toilet and sink didn’t make the best use of the space we had, plus the radiator was too big for the space and the colours didn’t work for us, so we decided to rip out everything and start again. On the plus side the shower has the most excellent water pressure. Small wins.
We wanted to continue our neutral theme in this space. The master bedroom is all white with some natural wood aspects, so we stuck with the All White F&B walls.
We wanted the details to be the interesting thing about this bathrrom-we added a wooden sink shelf which we hand picked and planed from a timber yard.
The @kastconcretebasins RENA sink is such a beautiful statement piece it deserved a beautiful shelf to show it off. The black tap from @abode_home compliments the black porthole, we also chose a black shower head and controls to tie everything together.
We found some stunning natural clay bejmat tiles from @ottotiles which were all handmade, lending the bathroom a really natural, handmade, rustic quality that we love. We wanted to add a bit of colour and texture here, while still using natural materials. They feel so warm and solid underfoot, especially when the sun shines through the little porthole.
For the shower we decided to go for large, off white tiles, again handmade so there is a real variance in the colour from tile to tile which prevents the room from looking too clinical.
We added a beautiful and simple ceramic wall light fitting, a much smaller white towel radiator and a large round mirror with a lovely warm backlight.
A simple wooden stool and plant add some nice finishing touches!
I love the end result of this room- it really is a joy to use, it cries out for long morning showers with cup of hot coffee waiting on the side stool!
