Katoomba bathroom - renovating a timber cottage
The bathroom design strips back all surfaces to original timber floor, walls and brick fire place. The room is like it was 100 years ago when it was a kitchen with an old wood stove. I left the stove there and added a beautiful steel freestanding bath. The vanity unit is made from combining an antique dresser, a second hand marble basin and high quality traditional tap. A rich red colour is painted on the timber lining board walls. The result is a warm, welcoming space with no tiles. The timber floor is warm under foot. When you look through the double doors from the living room into the bathroom, the toilet and vanity are hidden and all you see is the room and the bath. The sun streams in all afternoon. Relaxation !
