If you’re stuck on how to tackle a solo bathroom renovation or simply don’t know where to start, we’ve got some real life bathroom renovation inspiration from Elwood Trade Services.
We talked to Deb, co-owner of Elwood Trade Services, to get a glimpse of how this bathroom renovation played out – from the big vision to the end result.

The brief

The owners of the Albert Park property are two local businessmen, who also happen to be brothers. With a clear vision of bringing fresh life to their holiday rental bathroom, the goal was to add an extra layer of glamour and luxury to the space. They wanted the bathroom to feel bigger, have a stronger connection to the rest of the house and but also remain highly functional.

The must-haves:
Double wall hung vanity with ISSY Oval Mirror Shaving Cabinets
Adequate vanity storage
Walk-in shower
Kado Lux Petite Freestanding Bath (a previous much-loved buy)
