Before renovating, this bathroom exuded no style or practicality as it was dated and lacked storage. This full bathroom renovation in Hougang was designed with a nuetral Moroccan theme with it’s tiled ‘feature’ wall. Instead of designing the whole bathroom with the intricately designed tiles, the tiles were placed on just one wall and complemented with grey tiles on the surrounding walls and floors. This created a sense of spaciousness as the design does not overwhelm the small bathroom but still filled the space with personality.
Additionally, to create storage in the bathroom a counter top sink with bottom storage was installed. In a small space, finding storage solutions is key. An added upgrade to the bathroom was the installation of the bidet!
