A BEAUTIFUL BATHROOM
This oversized upstairs bathroom was created with relaxation in mind. Inspired by modern Balinese resort bathrooms and the classic weatherboards of Queenslander homes, Kobi and Georgia set out to design a sanctuary.
The windows are set high so no coverings are needed and views of the sky and tree can be enjoyed throughout the day. Shelving is inset for low maintenance – and to keep the space free of hanging shower caddies. Although it’s open plan, Kobi hid the toilet behind a nib wall beside the double shower, as “the last thing you want to see while showering is the toilet!” By keeping the room white with light-grey tile flooring and details, the space has become all about nature, with its warm wood tones and those views through the windows. “I love the windows, especially when the tree outside is flowering, so you just see the tree and skyline,” Kobi says. And while inset shelving is a feature of the bathroom, the set at left is especially savvy. Kobi can take out the timber shelves and remove the rear of the shelving to access the wall cavity should extra electric cabling be required or the fireplace flue need checking.
The open shelving provides storage and displays bathing essentials.
