A young couple approached Minosa Design and Royston Wilson Design for a bathroom remodel to a 50’s style orange brick veneer house in Australia. Described as a dark, cramped interior, the former bathroom needed to adapt to the vibrant lifestyle of the owners, without disregarding functional needs. The designers tackled the problem by envisioning a modern and exciting space, filled with natural light.
An extensive use of mirrors was the key to maximizing space and “deal” with the black finishes. LED lighting was concealed under the vanity bench top and floating cabinet. Moreover, a mirror ball was placed above the tub for cool lighting effects. But as the designers comment, “the real hero” of this bathroom space- as mystifying as that may sound- is a portrait made from Bisazza glass mosaic tiles said to depict Napoleon Bonaparte. Looking forward to your comments on this unconventional bathroom feature!
Apaiser is a great source for luxury round stone tubs, such as the Eclipse Stone Bathtub shown below. In fact, Apaiser tubs are perfect for spaces that showcase building materials such as stone and tile. Soft edges are a highlight of this piece, and it’s also available in a range of hues and materials. Keep in mind that when it comes to the modern powder room, a round tub has the power to soften the bold lines of the space. Yet you don’t have to play it safe with the bathtub, as shown below by a bold selection in black, a Caroma product purchased from Reece.
We now shine the spotlight on a series of modern powder rooms that are magnificent in their own right. Stone is the material of choice in the bathroom below, which makes the Haven Stone Bathtub with Base from Apaiser an ideal choice for the space! Note how details such as a sculptural pendant light add layers of eye-catching design to this interior. Sometimes less is more, and when the powder room is all about the tub, it’s not a bad idea to go bold. Next we see Apaiser’s Haven Stone Bathtub (this time without the base), and if black isn’t your tub color of choice, note that in true Apaiser tradition, the piece is available in a variety of finishes. Here’s another modern black bathtub in a grey bathroom, and this time the tub is available through Modern Bathroom Vanities.
