In Design International wins Best Small Bathroom Design Victoria

In Design International wins Best Small Bathroom Design Victoria

Featuring two of our most stunning porcelain designs to date (Tanzania Almond and Boston Stone), In Design International were recently awarded Best Small Bathroom Design Victoria at the KBDi 2019 awards.

THE PROJECT (words by In Design International)

"Set within a stunning CBD heritage listed building, a mid-80’s modern style, modest apartment was entrusted to us with the clients’ clear brief to return a “practical weekender” for personal use to accommodate family including 2 young grandchildren.



Our layout and design encompassed a holistic approach to the entire apartment. We relocated partition walls while working around structural elements and rises to improve spatial planning of this tiny weekender.

Working meticulously to avoid unnecessary slab core drilling, we maintained the position of the WC but negotiated variations to other plumbing fixtures with ease. The end result is a 2 way ensuite/bathroom with a mezzanine storage room above, accessible only by a hidden electronic drop down stair case via a broom closet! (AKA ‘the secret room’ as the grandchildren now call it!)



For consistency with the passageway floorboards, we used timber look floor tiles. A stunning marble and porcelain elongated hexagonal mosaic feature wall off-set with simple warm grey main body tiles compliments an incredible on trend natural marble half height wall.



With no direct natural light it was paramount to achieve brightness via artificial light and the inclusion of a hardwired magnifying mirror made a world of difference.

With a nostalgic clawfoot bath, telephone shower, locally hand-blown glass wall sconces, custom aged iron tapware, marble slabs and intricate tiling details, this bathroom is a complement to the historic glory of the heritage building it rests within."

Can you tell the difference?

Can you tell the difference?

With so many technical advances in hard surface materials it is very hard to tell the difference between a natural marble or timber floor and their imitation counterparts. With so many benefits attributed to porcelain tiles including stain resistance, UV stability, cleanability, large format options for easy installation with no sealing required and reduced grout lines. It is no wonder these gorgeous natural elements are being reproduced onto porcelain tile in a way that is more resilliant to the wear and tear of everyday life.
