This large family bathroom is a new addition to this renovated traditional craftsman style home. The stunning high vaulted ceiling and woodwork are the star of this traditional family bath designed for a family of six which features a claw foot tub in the middle of the room which is centered on the windows. The walls are clad in custom woodwork and moldings to protect them in the wet environment. The wall panelling is topped by a ledge which circles the room and offers practical storage and display for everyday bathroom necessities while also adding  timeless style and grounding the large vaulted space. Additional storage cupboards are  built into the walls, hiding the bathroom clutter away. The wall above the paneling is painted in an airy light blue which echoes the robin’s egg paint colour used throughout the rest of the home and gives the bathroom a soothing and relaxing feel.
The claw foot tub is crowned by a large chandelier powered by candle light only, as we were unable to have an electrical fixture this close to the bath. The view of the chandelier and bathtub is framed by the door way and hall leading to the room. A large walk in shower with a rain shower head and wand shower is hidden around the corner.

A Traditional Family Bathroom Full of Beautiful Interior Design Details

We added 2 pedestal sinks with custom mirrors which are integrated into the wall panelling as the clients prefer this over a double vanity. The faucets’ traditional design mirror the design of the bathtub fixture.
To accentuate the traditional style of the bathroom, we selected a Carrara marble tile for the floor and shower base and a white subway tile for the shower walls.
A small scale hexagon marble tile inlay provides a non-slip section in front of the bathtub as well as additional design sparkle. The bathroom is styled using sea grass baskets and a weathered oak chair with caning to provide natural texture. Shells and pebbles which have been collected over the years by the family’s children adorn the shelves and ledge giving an organic feel and warmth to this much used and loved space.
