Your bathroom, your sanctuary BATHROOM RENOVATIONS ARE AN IMPORTANT PART OF ANY HOUSEHOLD MAKEOVER AND THERE ARE SO MANY THINGS TO CONSIDER BEFORE YOU EVEN START THE WORK. LUCKILY WE ENLISTED THE HELP OF AWARD-WINNING DESIGNER MAL CORBOY. WITH OVER 25 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE, MAL NOT ONLY DESIGNS AWARD-WINNING KITCHENS, BUT ALSO BATHROOMS, FURNITURE AND FULL INTERIORS THROUGHOUT NEW ZEALAND AND THE WORLD. HE’S THE GURU WHEN IT COMES TO A RENOVATION AND WAS AN OBVIOUS CHOICE. As our first step we arranged a time for a design consultation with al. is passion for design and ability to understand his client’s wishes is second to none. al took us through his plans and suggested various materials and options. In addition, he suggested some companies that could help us out. amine New Zealand were our go-to for creating a seamless finish in both bathrooms. We used amine finished timber veneer for the cabinetry, giving us a sophisticated finish and featured Caesarstone anilla Noir for the countertop. Caesarstone is made up from 9 % quart , so it combines the beauty and strength of quart with the cool, tactile qualities of natural stone. Another benefit of Caesarstone is that it’s non porous and is therefore resistant to stains and easy to clean, fantastic for the bathroom As the leading supplier of high quality surfaces in New Zealand, amine New Zealand has beautiful options for bathrooms and kitchens of any budget. To cut our stone, we chose the wonderful ranite eaven from erikeri who were fantastic. When it came to tiles we chose Tile Warehouse, who provided us with stunning Bi -Art Sahara mosaic feature tiles and Oceanic rigio atte wall tiles. These mosaics are plastic faced, which is a unique advantage of these tiles because there is no netting on the back. This ensures 100% glue coverage which means they won’t fall off over time.

Paterson’s have been in the tapware business for more than fifty years and helped us out with our bath, shower, taps and toilet. They offer products that have one simple, common thread – they represent e cellence in design and functionality. We had the Subway 2.0 Toilet Suite installed which boasts a high quality slim seat and cover. When it comes to hygiene and cleaning, the suite is simple to care and clean for, allowing a precise, splash-free ow of water right up to the open rim. We wanted the bath to be a big feature in our bathroom and chose the Squaro from Paterson’s. ade from uaryl, which is composed of a fusion of acrylic and quart filling, this was the bath of our dreams and one we can’t wait to spend a lot of time in We also installed the Nivito hythm Pull-out i er Tap and basin, which is made of 100% solid stainless steel and chose a beautiful gold brass-look finish. We are obsessed with it and love showing it off When it came to the finishing touches, we enlisted the help of creative stylist onna Balasoglou who immediately connected with what we were trying to achieve. She purchased accessories from French Country and arrowset all to pull the final product together. Check out our before and after pictures to see the final result to see our bathrooms go from average to sophisticated.
