A bathroom is not just a place for personal hygiene, it can also serve as an area to indulge the senses. Here are a selection of bathrooms that really impressed the team at SA Home Owner with their unique design features and top quality craftsmanship.
DH Architecture was appointed and responsible for the design of this house. The client’s brief was to push the boundaries and deliver something unique – a different design to the other properties in the estate. Natural materials such as timber and rock cladding were used, incorporating a natural and calming colour palette.
“The home is designed to stand out in terms of its modern features but also slot neatly into the surrounding neighbourhood.” Green Leaf Kitchens, who designed this bathroom, makes use of its own factory and fully qualified supervision to ensure a smooth-running, flawless delivery of service and outstanding joinery.
With a wealth of experience in residential and corporate interiors, Urban Create Design worked with the brief from the home owner from the outset, undertaking all spatial planning, design and décor. The aim was to design flowing, comfortable spaces complemented by modern, stylish furniture to create a timeless, beautiful home away from home.
Incorporating natural elements was essential for this family, which is evident in the prominent use of natural oak, natural stone and marble in the bathroom. Still Bathrooms supplied the taps and basins in this stylish home. A unique teardrop-shaped tap (Goccia by Gessi) in a chrome finish and one in a white finish and elegant white slimline soft basins were selected. The brassware chosen is Goccia by Gessi, and the basins are from the range Shui by Ceramica Cielo.
Room with a view
Views over fairways, lakes and forests make this home a golf lover’s delight. And the most special feature of the home is not the stylish fittings or elegant finishes; but rather the way it brings together the interests of every family member. The position of the bath, allowing a view of the golf course, plus the luxurious Axor waterfall shower head, make this room a family favourite.
The French architecture of the home is both exquisite and charming. “I love French architecture and I love the homely old vibe the French design represents and portrays. I want my guests coming to my home to feel cosy and relaxed. As a family we love the homely vibe of our home – especially in winter when the wood-burning fireplaces are lit and the smell and crackle of the wood transpires,” says the owner.
This home started out as an existing house in need of a small facelift – but the small facelift resulted in a complete overhaul. The interior is designed in such a way that you can feel the essence of nature even inside the home – from the wooden flooring, exposed trusses and brickwork to the natural tones used throughout.
A tale of two cultures
When the husband is Scottish and the wife is Peruvian, there is bound to be an interesting mix of ideas, culminating in a personal, homely space surrounded by nature. An unusual feature in the bathroom is a glass insert into the floor filled with mountain stones. A structural necessity combined with an aesthetic value makes a clever concept.
