Our unique preferred bathroom scheme is of white bevelled edge subway tiles with dark coloured grout, and exposed copper plumbing. We have created a number of our bathrooms in this style effectively and it makes for a really striking feature in your garden studio or outdoor room.
Exposed copper pipework isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but it can create a striking industrial look and feel to your bathroom. As custom builders, you can enjoy the design flexibility to design and create the space to your liking by choosing the tiles, taps and fittings you prefer.
If exposing your pipework isn’t an option, you can incorporate hints of brass into your bathroom by adding little accessories and finishing touches. Keep your eye out for alternative uses of materials and tools.The best way to achieve this is to visit local charity shops and scrap yards to find interesting and striking pieces of copper that will really stand out against your bathroom scheme. In one instance we discovered a disused watering can being sold as a vase in Leura in the Blue Mountains and removed the spreader attachment to convert it into a shower head.
Once you choose to use copper in your bathroom, it’s important that you ensure it fits in with your overall bathroom theme. By setting brass piping against exposed brick walls, you can create an “off the wall” industrial look to your bathroom. Add some industrial style lighting to further enhance the style.
