Bathrooms are no longer just a room in your home where you take care of your hygiene. A bathroom is now a place for unwinding and relaxing. Whilst it’s essential to determine a highly functional layout when renovating, giving special attention to the aesthetic will help you create a tranquil bathroom design—leaving you feeling relaxed and allowing those stresses to soak away.
Luxurious Design Vibes
Marble is not everyone’s cup of tea. But there’s no denying it will give you a timeless, classic design.
This blog will share two bathroom renovations recently delivered to Avocado Constructions clients.
We assisted our clients, Michelle and Robbie and Tania and Peter, with the DESIGN and BUILD. And both clients incorporated marble into their bathroom renovations.
Even though both bathroom designs are very different, each conveys luxury and sophistication. Delivering a serene atmosphere.
Marble Feature Wall
Both bathrooms had a mosaic tiled feature wall. A feature wall should always be the furthest wall from the door or the largest wall in the room.
Whilst there are windows on these walls, they don’t take away from the WOW factor. It’s important to have both:
a) natural light
b) ventilation in a bathroom
We repositioned the window high on the feature wall in Michelle and Robbie’s bathroom. Originally Michelle and Robbie were thinking of using the marble fishscale tiles only in their bath and shower niches.
I felt using the tiles only in these two small positions wouldn’t give them the desired effect they wanted. I saw how they had used a herringbone marble mosaic for their kitchen splashback. I strongly recommended we create a full feature wall using the Carrara Marble Honed Fishscale Mosaic tiles from The Tile Collective.
At Tania and Peter’s Mitchelton bathroom renovation, Tania knew she wanted a herringbone marble feature wall.
We initially looked at using standard subway tiles and presented 3D renders to help them visualise their bathroom. Not only for the benefit of viewing the aesthetics but because we were knocking down walls and extending walls to create a new footprint.
You can see how realistic 3D renders can be.
When I presented an alternative tile option; Elwood Matt Carrara Herringbone Mosaic Tile from Tile Cloud, Tania instantly expressed how much she loved these tiles. Simon also commented that they were an excellent tile lay.
Bringing it all Together
Michelle and Robbie went with matte black tapware, fixtures and fittings.
Even though the choice of black is bold, in my opinion, it doesn’t take away from the tranquil vibes. It enhances them, creating a sleek, sophisticated bathroom design.
We also used large 600x600mm Carrara wall tiles on adjoining walls and the floor.

We knew as soon as they left that they were the right company to complete our bathroom renovation.
“From the moment that we met with Avocado Constructions for our initial quote, we knew as soon as they left that they were the right company to complete our bathroom renovation.
Simon provided us with assurance and guidance throughout our design and re-build process.
Very communicative, with great attention to detail and a sense of care, is what we experienced.
It was lovely to see the same faces throughout the renovation who were very respectful of our property and whilst around us.
At the conclusion, the team left some beautiful gifts for us to enjoy! They executed our dream bathroom to perfection, and for that, we highly recommend team Avocado Constructions.” – Michelle & Robbie, Everton Park
Consider changing your swinging door to a cavity slider to free up more space within your bathroom.
What’s Not to Love?
Tania and Peter’s bathroom has luxurious vibes but in a more down to earth delivery. A clean, crisp palette teamed with the Carrara marble feature wall.
We used brushed nickel tapware as we didn’t want the tapware and fixtures to be a focal point. The vanity quartz stone benchtop also has delicate marble veins. Creating cohesion in design is essential!
We incorporated light timber hues with a custom-built vanity with a stone benchtop from our cabinetmaker Tailored Interiors
Not to forget the impressive, valued skylight above the shower to inject loads of natural light into the room. The photos of this Brisbane bathroom renovation speak for themselves.
The Avocado experience was seamless
“Thank you to Simon, and the Avocado Crew. They totally renovated our Master Bathroom. This included complete demolition of old, adding a skylight, extension, bath and new entry.
It is sheer luxury.
We got another company to renovate a master in a previous house, and it was a miserable experience. It leaked straight away and had to be totally redone.
With that in mind, the Avocado experience was seamless. The attention to fine detail was spot on. Would highly recommend.” – Peter and Tania, Mitchelton
