What has this ren­o­va­tion in­volved? BEN LLOYD As part of a grand-plan al­ter­ation to the ex­ist­ing fam­ily home, this bath­room was the con­sol­i­da­tion of what were three strangely sep­a­rated cu­bi­cles. The de­sign re­in­forced this in­te­gra­tion with a sim­plic­ity and con­sis­tency of ma­te­ri­als and in­tro­duced a curved wall into the shower. El­e­ments of black steel, con­sis­tent with the ex­te­rior al­ter­ations, were in­cor­po­rated into the cus­tom-made cab­i­netry. South­ern win­dows that ad­joined the en­trance and drive­way were re­moved and re­placed with a large sky­light over the bath, al­low­ing light to wash into the room.

What are some of your favourite fea­tures? TRACEY AND MICHAEL WELSON, OWN­ERS The sky­light is awe­some – it’s great ly­ing in the bath and look­ing up. It’s still a small space, but re­mov­ing the win­dows and tak­ing the wall tiles high makes the space feel opened up. There is a sen­sor light un­der the van­ity, great if the bath­room is be­ing used at night. There are quite a few black ac­cents in here. Can you tell us about that? TRACEY Michael’s favourite colour is black, so we have black ac­ces­sories and fit­tings. The push plate for the toi­let was sil­ver, but we had it painted black, which was more cost-ef­fec­tive. And I found black tow­els at Citta De­sign.

What sort of stor­age is in this bath­room? TRACEY AND MICHAEL There is tonnes of stor­age. There is the mir­rored cab­i­net, van­ity draw­ers and a shelf that runs above the bath. There is also a niche in the walk-in shower. The shower is set be­hind a wall, so it isn’t vis­i­ble when you walk into the bath­room.
