1. Use marble to create serene light filled space

How gorgeous is this bathroom? Not only is it minimal, but it shows you how to create this look when space is tight. The mini bath is a great shape and it looks perfect sitting on the large marble floor tiles – and we love how the tiles continue on up the wall. The walnut style basin unit adds warmth to the scheme and creates a depth with its beautiful grainy texture. Keep the rest of the scheme simple. 

2. Go for a single color for your minimalist bathroom 

This stunning walk-in bathroom is the epitome of minimalism. The simple, pared back design oozes calm and sophistication. To recreate this, you need to only have what you really need on show and to keep the elements basic – yet beautiful. The flooring is actually vinyl – who would know?! And it complements the textured stone tiles and bare plastered wall. Accessories are kept uber simple – the Shaker style peg rail, antique stool and wooden shelf on the right add character. 

3. Pare back on what you need

There are so many great elements in this bathroom – let’s start with

The current owners purchased the property from the Salvation Army 23 years ago in a run-down condition and decided a renovation was necessary.

The property is listed with Cobden & Hayson’s Ben Southwell and is located on 54-56 Carlisle Street – only six kilometres from Sydney’s CBD.

Mr Southwell said during the renovation the owners wanted to make sure the hall keeps its sense of character.

‘They wanted to do something sympathetic to the original design,’ he said.

‘Everything has been in such a way to ensure it takes nothing away from the hall like the extension, which blends effortlessly into the rest of the hall.’

Family snaps up stunning East Geelong renovation without inspection

A young family from Melbourne has paid close to a suburb record price for a renovated East Geelong house without making a physical inspection.

The four-bedroom house at 15 Anderson Street sold for $1.32 million after the buyers made the bold play for the extended california bungalow early in the auction campaign.

Buxton, East Geelong agent Carl McCann said the strong early offer attracted competition from other hopeful purchasers, pushing the sale price $45,000 above the top of the quoted range.

The complete guide to a kitchen renovation

The competition moved the selling agents to skip the October 17 auction and wrap up the sale early.

“They’re a young family coming out of Melbourne. They’ve bought it without seeing it,” Mr McCann said.

“But they were pretty confident with the video that we provided them and I also did a walk-through with the phone in hand talking through it, answered all their questions and they were comfortable enough to move forward.

“I think with the 360-degree videos that we can provide these days, it’s a lot easier to do a walk-through virtually.

“And they focused on a few things with the phone in hand and away they went.”

Mr McCann said the renovation and extension was finished in 2015, delivering a picture-perfect home featuring a custom kitchen packed with quality features and a spacious family living room that spills out to an entertainment area.

The complete renovation also updated the original portion of the house, adding features like hydronic heating, double-glazed windows, evaporative airconditioning and Velux skylights.

“It was a beautiful home. I think it’s a quality area as well and a lot of people are lining up waiting to get in,” Mr McCann said.

Nine shipping containers were used in the spectacular custom design, with their distinctive corrugated siding proudly displayed across the exterior.
