Vanity & wall finish - the same?
You want to maximise a small space If you’re struggling space-wise, you can’t beat a built-in bath, which these days come in all shapes and sizes. Don’t have room for a full-length tub? Worry not. Opt for a shorter, deeper model that will offer just as good a soak as the bigger designs, and add in a shower above it for flexibility.

The team chose Starphire glass for the enclosures. “It’s more expensive, but I think it’s worth it every time,” Rabaut says. Starphire glass is clearer and has much less of a green cast than regular glass. The shower has a teak floor. “This floor is also linear and reinforces the warmth of the wood,” she says.
PVC panelling Have some fun and inject an earthy, industrial or cabin-like look into your bathroom decor by installing PVC panelling instead of tiles, wallpaper or timber. PVC is the perfect substitute wall finish for wet zones, as it can withstand up to 60 degrees heat without its finish being affected. Think retro vinyl records, but with a wide range of designs. Not only does PVC prevent dirt build-up, it’s also immune to mould and germs. So unlike timber panelling, it only requires a low-fuss, hot sponge wipe down for cleaning. Another bonus is that PVC is fire retardant and good for insulation – it’s the same product that is used to insulate electrical cables. Available in a range of patterns and colours, these panels are cost-effective and can be nailed to walls to hide lumps and bumps without having to fill holes, resurface and paint. DESIGN TIP: You can nail panels down with the pattern vertical or horizontal, to make your ceilings look taller or your walls wider.
