Brilliant SA undertook a series of staged renovation projects throughout this 100 year old Federation Bungalow located in Cheltenham. Our first project was the main bathroom, winner of the 2018 HIA (SA) Bathroom of the Year. Following this, we undertook a laundry and powder room renovation including substantial building work in late 2019. Lastly a 2020 kitchen renovation finalised this stunning whole home renovation.
Our clients had a very specific vision for their laundry, similarly to their other projects they required some guidance in bringing their ideas together to create a contemporary traditional fusion that worked for them. Brilliant SA converted this previously small square laundry to a longer, larger room by knocking out an internal wall to a storeroom which wasn’t being adequately utilised. This newfound length allowed us to undermount both washer and drier and have a substantially larger amount of bench space and portion of tall cupboards. We bricked in a pre-existing external door where the powder basin is now located to create a more user friendly design.
Most notably, custom joinery in Wilson Art Traceless Matte Black Panels has been used on all panels, with a contrasting marble effect Polytec laminate benchtop in Matera Calacutta Grey. The Eleanor Shepherds Crook Basin Mixer is the perfect traditional fusion selection. Copper Antique handles and Laminex Honey Elm open shelving introduce warm elements which tie in wonderfully with the stand out tangerine barn door and feature wallpaper.
The result is a functional yet playful laundry and powder room with stand out features and lots of storage. The barn door ties in beautifully with the styling and artwork throughout our clients traditional fusion home.
