Project Category: Affordable Luxury Bathroom Renovation
Location: Bondi Beach NSW
Initial client brief: Create a hotel-style luxury bathroom inspired by The Ace Hotel in New York, building an everyday luxe feel in a small space.
This Bondi bathroom is a dream, hotel inspired luxury bathroom that Integriti Bathrooms were thrilled to makeover.
The home itself is an original 1920s apartment in Bondi Beach with period features throughout the house. The client wanted a “luxury hotel bathroom” inspired by The Ace Hotel based in New York. For us, the imperative was to ensure that the bathroom was functional in such a small space and flowed with the rest of the apartment, while also delivering on the bathroom of our clients dreams.
A satin slate oversized subway grey tile from Delorenzo Tiles covers the walls, immediately creating a moody atmosphere in the room.
The shower features an inbuilt recess, perfect for bottles and storage, alongside a small window for ventilation and extra light. To ensure adequate ventilation a ceiling fan was fitted to a new drop ceiling and piped out the external wall. The period home bathroom was suffering with a large mould problem; we wanted to insure this would not be repeated in the client’s new space.
We were asked to create a custom vanity for this small space, utilising a beautiful piece of recycled marble that the client was able to source from a local supplier. This creates beautiful texture and immediate luxury in this small space, while the irregular shaped sink creates a very modern point of visual interest.
In such a small space, storage is a premium. So lots of hooks placed on the wall and by the vanity allow for immediate towel storage without cutting into the footprint of the room the way a towel rail would. The vanity itself is quite deep, allowing for bigger and bulkier items to be stored and it was important to again consider the footprint of the room when determining this depth.
A mix of matte black and bright gold fittings were used to match The Ace Hotels main athletics and alongside the marble is a nod to current trends. A generous mirror and modern matte black and wood wall sconce finishes off the room, a nod to the heritage feel of the home with a distinctly modern twist.
This beautiful bathroom was achieved on one of our smaller budgets, but still allowed us to create that sense of hotel luxury, firmly meeting the clients brief. This beautiful makeover shows that no matter your space restrictions or budget, integriti bathrooms can make your dream bathroom a reality. All you have to do is get in touch with us today and we will create something beautiful and perfect for your home.
