Good as new bathroom
Material re-use was the focus of this bathroom renovation in a Victorian brick bungalow.
This bathroom was renewed as part of a renovation to a West Preston, Victoria, post-war brick bungalow. Brenton, then owner and architect with The Rexroth Mannasmann Collective, focused on re-using materials where possible. In the bathroom, the bath was re-enamelled and the tapware was sourced from a local trash and treasure. The same tiles were used for both the bathroom and kitchen to save on costs and off-cut wastage.
Features & products:
– Greywater diverter tap to bath
– Laminate fronted vanity made by Timberworks
– Tapware sourced from Coburg Trash and Treasure
– Existing windows and lighting retained, although windows
were reglazed in narrow reeded glass to allow more light
into the room.
– Concrete floor finished with low VOC Fondo woplus wax
sealer from Aristocrat Marble & Granite, Victoria
– Existing cast iron bath re-enamelled in situ by Nu-Pride
Many companies offer bath resurfacing. Resurfacing can be done in situ over three to four hours by professional resurfacers. You can choose from a variety of colours and grout lines are sealed, eliminating mould and mildew. The new surface should last between 10 and 15 years (ensure you get a warranty). As the coatings used during the process can contain toxic isocyanates, choose a professional resurfacer with good waste management and ventilation procedures.
