GSI Ceramica and CRISTINA Rubinetterie kindly partnered on our project.
The bathroom is located in the corner of the cabin underneath the sleep loft. It has a door out to the garden and one into the main living area.
GSI Ceramica helped draw up this plan / design which felt perfect for the space!
When we first announced that the main cabin entrance is through the bathroom everyone looked at us like we were completely nuts – and even we had a few doubts! However, it’s actually worked out brilliantly for three reasons: the bathroom has tiled floors, making it a perfect entrance in all weather, the hooks can double up for towels and coats, and finally, the shower is ideal for washing off sandy feet!
Once in the cabin you can then open up all the other doors and windows and use those to enter and exit.
I was eager to create a timeless bathroom with high quality fittings. I have to say, the calm tones, matt surfaces and stone floor create such a wonderful sense of serenity and it feels way more airy than the 3.66 m2!
Here’s the low down on all the details in case you’re interested:
Sink and cabinet
etc and the cabinet is really spacious (perfect when you have teenagers at home!).
The best thing about the loo is the soft closing lid and Swirlflush technology – known for being the quietest flushing system in the world – which is absolutely ideal when you live in close quarters! I love the matt finish on the ceramic (inside the bowl it’s glossy to guarantee maximum hygiene).
As you know from the various kitchens I’ve designed (including our cabin kitchen and cottage kitchen), I am a firm believer that a high quality tap can add SO MUCH to the overall experience. We chose a wall mounted tap (CRIT257) and shower (CRIT486) from the Tricolore Verde collection by CRISTINA Rubinetterie – in brushed old brass which has a raw look and lovely rich patina and feel beautiful to use!
I especially like the addition of the hand shower, it’s so well, handy!
Thank you to everyone who offered tips and advice on the shower door, it was so helpful. Based on your input, I went with one glass shower wall which is 800 mm (the shower measures 800 mm deep and 700 mm wide) with bronze fittings and no door (it works great without a door). It’s very sleek and barely noticeable. I’ll need to add a cross bar across the top to secure it (it came with one so it’s just to put it up).
For years at the cottage we’ve been using a mirror that’s so mottled you can barely see your face. This time, we went for a modern Four Season Mirror with LED (60 c
m) which is really practical!
I hope you like tour bathroom as much as we do! I have to say, it’s an absolute joy to use and well worth all the extra effort!
I hope it may have given you some ideas if you’re also planning a small bathroom renovation. If you have any questions, please do give me a shout below!
Have a wonderful weekend friends. See you Monday!
